Saturday, October 27, 1787

It is my intention to link to The Federalist Papers on the 222nd anniversary of each one. These were a series of articles advocating the ratification of the United States Constitution and laying the foundation for a federal government limited in it's scope and power over the people. That same Constitution is still the law of the land. It is to our benefit to study and understand the absolute limits on the federal government because of the incredible overreach of it today.

The Federalist Papers were printed in New York newspapers and written by Alexander Hamilton (51 articles), James Madison (29 articles) and John Jay (5 articles) under the pseudonym "Publius."
