The Federalist Papers

As I begin my 60th year on this planet, in the wake of a troubling and divisive presidential race, I feel the need to re-examine what it means to be an American citizen. And for me, a major part of that is to reexamine the core of what defines our country - the United States Constitution. So, with that in mind, I am going to attempt to study the Federalist by Hamilton, Madison, and Jay and put into words what I see in our history for good or ill and try to make it relevant to what I see happening today. If, in the process of this, I give you some food for thought or a reason to do your own thinking, well that is gravy.
