Back to the Basics

I believe the way to better secure and understand our future is to go back to the basics.  The fundamental basics and principles of our great Republic, is the Declaration of Independence, the Articles of Confederation, and the United States Constitution.  However, to best understand what our Framers intended, we should familiarize ourselves with the James Madison Notes.  James Madison is credited with taking the most complete notes of the Constitutional Convention of 1787, including the debates (almost verbatim).  Below please click the link to each.  Most of us have not read these historic documents in quite some time, if at all.  We must undertand what our Fore Fathers envisioned for the new Republic and why.  Equally, we must understand what the Framers actually said in the Constitution, and what they intended by their words. 

The Articles of Condederation

Agreed to by Congress November 15, 1777 

The James Madison Notes Of the Constitutional Convention of 1787
