    Good Evening,

    I was curious as to whether anyone besides my good friend and brother in Christ fromtheright would consider themselves to be "federalists." By that, I am referring to the Federalist Society.

    Please reply, as I would very much like to discuss some things I read at their website.

    Regards to all,
    BiR

    I consider myself to be a Christian Constitutionalist, but I don't know if I would consider myself a Federalist because I agree with many of the arguments of both the Federalists and the Anti-Federalists during the 1780s. I support the Constitution that the Federalist brought us, but am very thankfull the Anti-Federalist fought to get us the Bill of Rights.

    I am support decreasing the size of the federal government and returning the power back to the states that has been taken from them by the federal government.

    Thank you, brother. It'll be good for some of your fellow libs to be introduced to the fields of truth found at the Federalist Society. :D

    Actually, I clearly know better than to direct that comment solely to my liberal friends here, as there are some on the Right who probably take exception to some they will read at Fed-Soc.

    As to JG's point re vis a vis the Framers, I would generally be considered a Federalist but also share some of the anti-Fed concerns such as the lack of a Bill of Rights and, as JG said, the size of government. I understand the point of James Wilson and James Madison that a BoR wasn't needed with a framework of limited government but agree that one should not trust one's rights to "inferences".

    Take care and regards, my Brother in Richmond. After your travels of late, you deserve that fishing trip in Tampa!

    Whenever I say that, I get accused of being a racist, and supporting slavery.

    But I say it anyway.

    It is not racist, but it would be beneficial for all races.

    Well, FTR, perhaps you could explain something for me.

    In one article about turning back the clock on the New Deal, I found this quote:

    :confused:
    What?

    Do you believe in a “Constitution in exile?
    If you do, then please explain this one to me.

    Regards to you, my brother in Christ,
    BiR

    </font>[/QUOTE]I agree. JG and I think a lot alike on most political issues. I think we are related, distant cousins or something. :D

    BiR,

    Do you believe in a “Constitution in exile?

    I have never heard that term. It's interesting. I simply believe in looking to the original intent/text/understanding of the Founders.

    Take care, brother.

    Take some sunscreen, and happy, well-deserved fishing!

    This gets back to the thread on the two present parties being out of control and not in the interests of the American people. The US Consitution party which runs candidates for President and Congress has a very solid platform.
