The Virginia Ratifying Convention of 1788
Aug 02, 1987
Have American politicians always debated on the pallid, pragmatist level of today? Has there ever been argumentation over fundamental issues that was conducted on a more elevated, principled level? Indeed there has. It Involved the ratification of our American constitution, and it pitted James Madison against Patrick Henry. In this bicentennial year of the Constitution, there are few better ways to restore one's confidence in the possibilities of political discourse than to hear the words of these and other Founding Fathers in a dramatic discussion of Issues that remain profoundly relevant today.
