    Of course, otherwise the states wouldn't have ratified it. They didn't sever ties from one tyrannical government to create a new one in its place.

    The Constitution was designed to make the states strong? So were the states weak before hand?

    You're simply playing with words now. The Constitution was designed to keep the states strong.

    I agree. The federal government was to be the weakest link in the government chain. Perversions of the Constitution have turn that on its head.

    NOpe, NOT playing with words. Not at all.


    What existed before the Constitution? Why was there a need to design constitution in the first place?

    There wasn't. The mandate was to revise the Articles of Confederation and instead Madison, Hamilton, and Jay decided to create an entirely new form of government.

    Thanks for the negative rep Devnell. You are so gracious for giving me -20 rep points because you disagreed with me.

    I want people to be able to see the depth of your intellectual reasoning, which is clearly evident in the automated pm.

    Comment:
    another moron? geesh, where do you all come from?


    I was not rude to you. I entered the thread to have an honest civil debate. It appears you can't handle that.

    Intellectual coward.

    Yeah, I got yer back.

    I got one from Dev awhile back too, with almost the exact same PM. When I asked in-thread for Dev to point out what was moronic about my post, there was never any reply.

    Why the mandate? Maybe because there was a need to redesign something? So there was a need to design something. Were the states weak? If not then how can you say there was a need to make the states strong?
