Fried Green Onions ~ ~ ~ from the mindblogler: Wave Good-bye to the Constitution and Your God Given Rights: "By Pastor Paul Blair
After America’s Independence was one, the function between the thirteen “separate” States was difficult under the Articles of Confederation. The Continental Congress gathered together again in 1787 to “in order to form a more perfect union” and authored the Constitution. However, many states had reservations and fears of creating another strong Federal Government that could potentially stomp on their rights as King George III had done. There was debate between the “federalists” and the “anti-federalists”. Eventually, the states agreed to ratify the Constitution, but ONLY under the condition that TEN HANDCUFFS be placed upon this new Federal Government. Those handcuffs are called the Bill of Rights."
