In 24 years of active military service, I never lived any closer than 300 miles to my family. Sometimes it was eight time zones away.

My wife and I moved five times in first ten years. All five children were born at different duty stations; the first one was born overseas. It was two months before the grandparents saw him.

I’ve been deployed three times to hostile fire zones. I’ve been shot at, had grenades throw at me, had a pistol put to my head, seen a SCUD missile blow up overhead and it’s wreckage land a quarter-mile away, and been in two riots, one of which required getting helicopter gunships cover my escape while being responsible for the lives of eight war correspondents. In the other…

On the eve of the federal convention, and following its adjournment in September of 1787, the Anti-Federalists made the case that the Constitution makers in Philadelphia had exceeded the mandate they were given to amend the Articles of Confederation, and nothing more. The Federal Constitution augured ill for freedom, argued the Anti-Federalists. These unsung heroes had warned early Americans of the \”ropes and chains of consolidation,\” in Patrick Henry\’s magnificent words, inherent in the new dispensation.

After 200 years of just such \”consolidation\”—in the magisterial \”Liberty, Order, And Justice: An Introduction to the Constitutional Principles of American Government\”—constitutional scholar James McClellan distilled the Anti-Federalist argument with the respect it deserves.

As \”strong advocates of States\’ Rights,\” Anti-Federalists held that \”self-government, independence, and individual liberty were best protected at the local level. A distant and powerful central government,\” the kind cooked up at the Philadelphia convention, was anathema to these \”cherished values.\” To that end, Anti-Federalists fought to preserve the \”loose-knit relationship\” that had existed between the \”Confederation government and the States.\”

Should the Federal Constitution be ratified, there would be \”no checks, no real balances,\” thundered Patrick Henry. Instead, the country would live under a \”powerful and mighty empire.\” Writing under the assumed name \”Agrippa,\” yet another Anti-Federalist scoffed at the idea of an enormous \”uncompounded republic,\” \”containing 6 million white inhabitants,\” all \”reduced to the same standard of morals or habits and of laws.\” This \”in itself is an absurdity,\” mocked \”Agrippa.\”

The Tower of Babel that is 21st century America is home not to 6 but 317 million alienated, antagonistic individuals, diverse to the point of distrust. These modern-day Americans, some of whose ancestors were brought together by a \”profound intellectual and emotional attachment to individual liberty,\” possess little by way of \”social capital\” to unify them. Surveys say Americans today avoid one another and hunker down unhappily in front of the TV, instead. This would have hardly surprised \”Agrippa.\”

So, too, did Anti-Federalists predict the problem of representatives who had been imbued with excessive power. \”Once…….EXCERPT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
