Format: Taschenbuch
These often intense and firey speeches made by the Anti-Federalists or the detractors of the Constitution (as it was being written and then debated) are powerful, passionate and sharp enough to make one feel these words were meant to be weapons, i.e., the front line defense of the freedom and liberty we so easily take for granted today. I feel that much of what is wrong in our political system today was predicted here, and what would constitute the only real solution, i.e., active, democratic citizenship, is also demonstrated here in their willingness to fight against tyranny with reason and passion. How much greater our public debates would be today if this were required reading for all citizens! "Politics" would be thought well of again and refer to what citizens do in noble service to communities, close to home and far away. Do yourself a favor, get inspired again as to the original principles and purpose of democracy, read this book, and believe again! And do something!

4.0 von 5 Sternen Concerns of the Founders 25. August 2014
Von Richard Sitts - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
It is interesting, while reading this book, what the concerns of the founders and their contemporaries where when considering and ratifying the constitution. They recognized the concerns of corruption, ambitious men seeking power for themselves and expressed concerns about what this constitution might lead to. Chief amongst their concerns was that the Federal Government instituted under this constitution would eliminate the state governments and assume all power unto itself. While that hasn't happened yet, it is interesting how 223 years later how the federal government takes more and more upon itself the as the legislator and decider of how things will happen at the local level. Washington now decides what curriculum will be in our schools, how our children are to be taught and even what they will eat at lunch (breakfast and dinner in some places). They determine how our buildings are to be built, they decide all issues of health care policy, Federal Judges routinely knock down locally (city and state) ordinances and statutes and tell us we are not capable of governing ourselves. They are working on a one size fits all society. While we did relatively well with this constitution and the subsequent bill of rights for most of the preceding 223 years, it is almost as though many of the the worst fears of the anti-federalists of central government usurpation are coming true. To those who love big government and are always willing to trade some of their liberties and freedoms for more safety and security, this will all seem to be just a bit of falderal. To those who think that government best serves when it is local this will give them some pause.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fascinating Background On Constitutional Debates And Criticisms Of Centralized Power 24. Dezember 2010
Von RepublicConstitution - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Many Americans were clearly quite satisfied with the structure of government under the Articles of Confederation and it had indeed served them well. However, many elements also wanted to strengthen and energize the government so that it could get more done. This brought with it many positive developments but also a number of stark dangers. The Anti-Federalists, led by Patrick Henry and a few others, made powerful and compelling arguments against the concept of Federalizing into a Union in what they considered to be a rush, especially since things appeared to be working so well already. Indeed, many of the early debates already included issues that would continue to emerge later: slavery, the lack of need for a standing army, the danger of taxation, the danger of a centralized government with a monopoly on force of arms, the danger of creating a new aristocracy, and the danger of a powerful money class who could buy political influence in the Executive, Judicial, and Legislative branches. Unfortunately we have seen many of the warnings of the Anti-Federalists come to fruition and their worry of turning the presidency itself into a near monarchy may also be seen to develop at some future point. This is a wonderful read for anyone interested in U.S. history, the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, the early elements of the slavery debate, and much more.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Written by several early Americans, these articles opposed ratification ... 29. Januar 2016
Von OffGrid9 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Written by several early Americans, these articles opposed ratification of the Constitution of 1887. Not as well-known as "The Federalist Papers" (which supported ratification), but very important in understanding the opposing thought processes that were struggling throughout the ratification period. The Federalists wanted a strong central government. These men wanted more power dispersed to the states. Their ideas helped to shape the final outcome.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A prophetic book. 11. September 2014
Von harry schultze - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Everyone should read this book if they wonder why things are so wrong today! Patrick Henry warned everyone this would happen. He and others were afraid this type of government was too open to covert takeover by evil power and money hungry individuals. He warned the people would lose their freedom and he predicted how. The world would be a far better place had better safegaurds of freedom been established and a more representative form of goverment been put into place.Life without TRUE liberty is useless. It would be wonderful had they won.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Thank these men for your precious Bill of Rights 2. September 2011
Von K. Burns - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a captivating read. Having read the Federalist papers previously, the Anti-Federalist papers are equally influential.

Highlights are the papers by Brutus, Cato, John Dewitt, and speeches of Melancton Smith. Their premonitions of an encroaching consolidated government over the States may have been 200+ years too soon, but indeed correct. Their warnings of a centralizing all-powerful Federal Government have slowly come to fruition- as Melancton Smith predicted it would be by small degrees.

My only disappointment was little, or essentially, no detail on the Bill of Rights. The main reason I read the book was to learn more about how the arguments proceeded to this necessary compromise. There are many mentions of the need for Rights to be guaranteed, but no treatise on how they came to be included in the Constitution.
