Audiobook: Madison's Notes of Debates in the Federal Convention of 1787
Archive.org ^

Posted on 07/04/2014 7:27:56 AM PDT by ProgressingAmerica

Happy Independence Day everybody!

I would like to introduce my largest project to date: Attempting to put together one voice per Founder in the most important debate in American History.

The most important debate which nobody has ever heard. We are going to make sure people can finally hear it. You can listen to as well as download the files, here.

This is still very much a work in progress. I do not believe it is enough that people can read these notes, nor think that simply making the notes easier to read is enough. Given how they are written, it should not be surprising that any time I ask people if they have ever read them the answer is no.

These are powerful words. They need to be heard, they were meant to be heard. I am willing to put in as much effort as is necessary to complete the convention.


TOPICS: Announcements; Constitution/Conservatism; Culture/Society
KEYWORDS: audiobook; constitution; convention; jamesmadison; madison
This is personally costing me a lot of money as well as time to pursue, as well as the personal time and effort of those who have volunteered.

It is the hope of all of us that this effort can help us advance the cause of Liberty.

Thank you very much for your dedication of time and your own money to produce this. I am always looking for good content to play on my way to work and this will be at the top of my list. I just listened to your first segment and I’m impressed. Well done!

Madison's notes from the first day of the convention send chills down my spine. Contrast this to the self-aggrandizing, shallow, ego-centric, braggart in the White House today who truly has "want of better qualifications."

General WASHINGTON was accordingly unanimously elected by ballot, and conducted to the Chair by Mr. R. Morris and Mr. Rutlidge; from which in a very emphatic manner he thanked the Convention for the honor they had conferred on him, reminded them of the novelty of the scene of business in which he was to act, lamented his want of better qualifications, and claimed the indulgence of the House towards the involuntary errors which his inexperience might occasion.

Thanks for posting. Archive has a lot of free books and music. Snagged some good old Hank Williams Sr. gospel. Now I have the father of the constitution to listen to while I drive!
