During our country’s founding, several of the founding fathers published articles in the newspapers explaining the rationale behind various facets of the Constitution and why the states should ratify it. In many cases they would explain the arguments on each side of the issue and enlighten the public as to why they ultimately arrived at a point. They would publish these articles under the pen-name of “Publius”.
It is my goal to revive some of that spirit as we fight today for the very preservation of the Constitution. We need to be reminded why the Constitution of the United States is the greatest political document ever written, and why we, the people, need to wake up from our apathy and re-engage in our role as the final arbiters of government.
I will also write of local issues relevant to North Carolina. The Federalists envisioned sovereign states forming a voluntary union. It was designed for us to keep our own backyards clean first where proximity would give us (the people) the most leverage. I may also opine on other items of interest from time to time.
