An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
I’m sure you’ve noticed I’m VERY lax in my posting lately. I really AM sick! Honest! And lemme tell ya…this seriously sucks. I wanna go home!
Anyway, Publius Huldah has written a rather fascinating piece entitled….
Here’s a little snippet:
In order to write intelligently on our Constitution, one needs to have studied and understood the original source writings of our Framers. No matter what your educational level, if you don’t know what is in our Declaration of Independence and federal Constitution; and if you are not familiar from personal study with The Federalist Papers, The Kentucky and Virginia Resolutions of 1798, Madison’s Report on the Virginia Resolutions (1799-1800), and Madison’s Notes on Nullification (1834), among other original source writings, then you have no business writing about these issues.
But we are flooded with rubbish about the Constitution put out by law professors, history professors, Ph.Ds. of this or that, Heritage Foundation, those with no academic qualifications, and politicians. And none of them know what they are talking about!
Heritage Foundation, too? sigh… Well, she is the expert, and she doesn’t tolerate fools. She’s right. There are too many talking and teaching about a subject they haven’t even studied in depth. It’s rather sad that a large majority of our so called representatives aren’t familiar with the Founders, their writings, and the intent.
As I’ve told her time and time again, she almost scares me! Heh! The woman is brilliant, and retains the knowledge from everything she has read…photographic memory, don’cha know. Yep, she is one amazing lady! As I told Marsha Blackburn the last time I saw her, she really needs to have P/H go to D.C. and school those folks up there that are screwing up the country!!
Go read the entire piece. Read her papers on her blog. Read the links she provides. Study! We must educate ourselves! We cannot allow the federal government to continue to usurp power! It’s not theirs….. IT’S OURS!!!
