It took our founding fathers over four years before convening what became the Constitutional Convention after the end of the Revolutionary War. And then it took two years to have nine states ratify it and usurp the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union.
September 3, 1783 – The Treaty of Paris was signed.
September17, 1787 – The Constitution is signed by delegates
March 9, 1789 – The Constitution formally goes into effect.
I would rather follow a rag tag group of patriots fighting to restore Liberty than continue to pay tribute to a tyrannical government. This video is produced out of fear or by the government. But they did get one thing correct: Revolution should be the last resort. Restoring the Constitution should be the first. Can you imagine having this discussion with Samuel Adams?
Here are our nation’s presidents under the Articles of Confederation:
- John Hanson (1782)
- Elias Boudinot (1783)
- Thomas Mifflin (1784)
- Richard Henry Lee (1785)
- John Hancock (1786)
- Nathan Gorman (1787)
- Arthur Saint Clair (1788)
- Cyrus Griffin (1789)
However we have come to this point in time, we are here. The vain and aspiring men who hold the highest offices in the country will not leave quietly. As for the statement concerning keyboard commandos, we shall see if history will record them on the same level as Thomas Paine.
