A Book About The Past, Written With The Present In Mind, That Shall Be Remembered In The Future

By: Mr. Johnson of New York

"The good and honorable Mr. Tyson has written a masterpiece, penning an enlightened manifesto on how the past and classical experts in philosophy show that this grand experiment of ours must do to be sustainable and prosperous, not only for ourselves, but for the generations to come, that will read, learn, and remember us, either fondly for coming together under the ideas of those such as President Washington, Alexander Hamilton, and the good Mr. Tyson, or fighting and tearing each other apart as some, who did not support this government and have battled against those held in high regard, would have the citizens do under the philosophy of 'states rights'. May these essays of Mr. Tyson's, which undoubtedly are as wonderful as those Federalist Papers that helped form our current constitution, help mold the minds of our citizens, our lawmakers, our wonderful President, and our descendants.

The Dangers of a Central Government

By Ethan O'Rourke (Rep. NY-06)

No one denies our new nation has issues. We are currently engaged in a bloody war on the frontier, our industry is in danger of collapse under cheap manufactured goods from Europe, and our politics are in danger of becoming as fractious and hostile as those of Britain's Parliament. But in such times, we must be vigilant against the man who claims he can solve all of our problems. The man who comes to us telling he and his friends can fix everything in a heartbeat. The seductive deal he offers seems quite simple: trust for wealth and security. But that man and his friends ask for something more fundamental than merely your trust. To accomplish what they say they will, they must have the means to do so: power and control. 

We may look back through the history of our forefathers in the Old World to see how this ends. In Republican Rome, it was Caesar who promised to restore the wellbeing of the Plebeians. All he demanded in exchange was the power to do what he wished. In the end, all-powerful Caesar crushed the Republic beneath his heel and ensured the tyranny of imperial rule for four centuries. Even in modern days, we see such actions undertaken by those who claim only they can solve the problem. In France, the shackles of feudalism, serfdom, and  blind superstition had just been thrown off and the French people had tasted the deliciousness of freedom and enterprise, when a brief downturn broke the march of history. The French people, in a brief lapse of judgement, instead put their blind faith in a man named Richelieu, a scheming, ruthless, freedom hating man with the ambition to rule unchecked and unaccountable. The consequences were terrible. Today, the French people live in bondage in a feudal society. 

So beware the man who offers to solve your problems for you. His true ambitions might be harder to determine.

BE VIGILANT. BE ON GUARD.

Why State Debts should remain State Debts

By: Rev. Gideon McGee Representative for Rhode Island 

At long last, the day all the federalists in Congress have been waiting for has arrived to make their main focus of assuming state debts bill is now on the floor, and it is as bad as it always has sounded. Now many might be wondering why would everyone helping each other out with their debts be so bad? Isn't the role of the federal government to aid the states and give them guidance in areas deemed too big for a single state to handle? The answer is yes, that is the federal government's role, yet in this isn't a subject which requires federal interference. Many states Virginia for, example are close to or have already paid off their state debt which means they should have nothing to worry about unless the measure to assume state debts passes. In which case Virginia's money will now go to paying off the state debt of Georgia or South Carolina or New Hampshire instead of that money being focused on helping Virginians and their needs. Not only that currently the federal government has made a whopping  .2 million dollars which is enough to pay for only about 4 states debts and we are running a deficit ourselves so it makes no sense to add ontop of a deficit we can't pay off with more debt that we can't pay off. That is why I urge my friends and colleagues to fight against this nonsensical Assumptions Act to protect the people's wallets and get this country off on the right foot economically.
