Limitations Long Forgotten
I had long considered as a possibility that Shay’s Rebellion was—by its patriotic attention against the depredations of any government-sanctioned and government-enforcement of laws through the use of violence by its minions—a spur to the Federalists to hurry along the formation of the Constitutional Convention, most especially while Jefferson was out of the country. Nike Air Max 90 Femme They needed to get a more air-tight form of tyranny in place.
Yes, I think the scoundrels wanted to get their slaver schemes in place whilst the most ardent and articulate opponents of government were either out of the country, or without their most eloquent and influential member: Thomas Jefferson.
Patrick Henry, as well as many others, opposed the Constitutional Convention and its intent. (“I smell a rat!” I think Henry said.) Many of the initial Articles of Confederation and Declaration of Independence representatives refused to attend. Soldes Chaussures Nike Many refused to ratify. Many signers of the Declaration of Independence refused to attend or to ratify.

Some delegates, who had fought off one tyrant, were not so eager to carry on their backs another tyrant, of any form. Canotte Minnesota Timberwolves They were fearful that government—that evil institution necessarily populated with knaves and scoundrels—might one day interpret, for its own interests (the interests of those selfsame knaves and scoundrels) that the Bill of Rights was a complete articulation of the rights of free people, and that no other rights existed.
Many of those at the convention were fearful that those articulated prohibitions against government action, so scrupulously set forth in the Bill of Rights, might be eroded by vile manipulations of those who found comfort, succor, and wealth in the power of government office. These few far-seeing people were concerned that the limitations on government would be forgotten, replaced with rationalizations on why such limitations on government were not sound policy. cheap nike air max Thus is has happened, as we now can see. nike air max 90 mujer Limitations have been compromised in return for license to plunder the rights pockets of others, and to hide behind the agency of government while doing so.
