Debates in the Convention of the State of NO. Carolina, on the Adoption of the Federal Constitution....

I still think that a bill of rights is necessary. This necessity arises from the nature of human societies. When individuals enter into society, they give up some rights to secure the rest. There are certain human rights that ought not to be given up, and which ought in some manner to be secured. With respect to these great essential rights, no latitude ought to be left. They are the most inestimable gifts of the great Creator, and therefore ought not to be destroyed, but ought to be secured.

I can't even begin to thank you for the wealth of information that you have aquired in one place! This even beats the library of congress and other .gov sites.

I hope that you have this place backed up on a second hard drive, as you are an enemy of the left! Ya know the old saying, Knowledge is power keep up the good work.

By the way do you have an e-mail address?
