A Brief History of the Ratification Contest on this Constitution Day

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

These are the opening words of the United States Constitution. A document that was signed on September 17, 1787. The Constitution was signed by 39 delegates from 12 different States. The States bound themselves in a lose association titled Articles of Association. Under the Articles of Association, the Colonies declared their Independence from England.

In 1777, Congress passed the Articles of Confederation which governed the States. There were many problems with the Articles of Confederation which is one of the reasons why James Madison and others worked diligently to create a strong Federal government with limited and expressed duties and responsibilities.

In 1787, as the delegates left Philadelphia, they all understood that the real fight was just beginning. They had labored for 117 days in Philadelphia ironing out compromises and establishing the framework of how 13 States would be governed. However, just because the delegates agreed to the language contained in the Constitution, the document still had to be ratified by nine states.

Each state needed to select delegates to a state ratification convention. This meant that a new group of public leaders had to debate whether to accept the language proposed in Philadelphia at the national Constitutional Convention.

As the delegates left Philadelphia, they were probably wondering what the people were going to think. One thing became clear very quickly, there were many leaders who strongly opposed the proposed Constitution. A public education campaign was needed. The fact that George Washington and Benjamin Franklin supported the Constitution was not enough.

One of the best-known efforts to educate the electorate on the benefits of the Constitution was that of Alexander Hamilton, John Jay, and James Madison. The people in New York were opposed to a national government and they needed to be persuaded. Hamilton, Jay, and Madison worked together to write educational opinion articles in The Independent Journal. By the time these men had finished, they had written 85 separate articles that we now know as The Federalist Papers.

Efforts like Hamilton, Jay, and Madison were going on in almost every newspaper across the nation. Local leaders wrote in local papers in an attempt to persuade their neighbors to accept their opinion concerning the new Constitution. The debate for ratification was on.

Georgia had the smallest convention with 26 representatives while Massachusetts had the largest with 355. Each state selected how many representatives they would have, and when and where their conventions would be held.

Delaware was the first state to ratify the Constitution on December 7, 1787. They were also the first of three states whose ratification convention unanimously approved the Constitution. The other two states were New Jersey and Georgia.

On June 21, 1788, New Hampshire became the ninth state to ratify the Constitution. Madison knew that both New York and New Hampshire were debating whether they were going to ratify the Constitution. Madison was in regular correspondence with the conventions in both of these states. Madison was using his pen to help proponents of the Constitution with arguments for ratification.

Madison would have loved for Virginia to be the ninth and decisive ratification vote. He argued persuasively throughout the Virginia convention. On June 25, 1788, with a vote of 89 to 79, Virginia became the tenth state to ratify the Constitution. Madison was elated.

New York became the 11th state to ratify the Constitution on June 26, 1788, by a vote of 30 to 27. The New York ratification vote is a testament to the power of the press. When the New York delegation was initially elected, 19 were Federalists while 46 were Anti-Federalist. The New York delegation was strongly against the Constitution but they were persuaded to vote for ratification as the electorate became convinced of the need for a strong national government by publications like those contained in The Federalist Papers.

One interesting fact about the ratification process is that by the time George Washington was sworn in as President of the United States on April 30, 1789, two states still had not ratified the Constitution. Neither North Carolina nor Rhode Island were allowed to vote for the President. North Carolina ended up ratifying on November 21, 1789, and Rhode Island on May 29, 1790. With a vote of 34 – 32, Rhode Island ended up being the closest ratification vote of all the original 13 states.

Democrats in Massachusetts may have Stolen a U.S. Senate Seat in New Hampshire

When Trump said that voter fraud cost him the election in New Hampshire, the media laughed at him. In fact, politicians on both sides of the aisle laughed at him and demanded that he produce his evidence. Evidence is now being released in New Hampshire that 6,540 people registered to vote on election day with an out-of-state license. Of these 6,540 people, 5,313 individuals have done nothing since election day to establish residency in New Hampshire.

We do not know who these 5,313 people voted for. However, anyone who knows Hew Hampshire politics knows that over the years, there has been a huge speculation of people traveling from Massachusetts to New Hampshire to vote. There has been a lot of smoke, and now it appears the fire has been found.

While Hillary won New Hampshire by 2,736 votes, the four electoral votes in New Hampshire did not end up changing who became the 45th President of the United States. No harm, no fowl you say …

While the Trump versus Hillary race in New Hampshire was close, the race for U.S. Senate seat between Kelly Ayotte and Maggie Hassan was even closer. Hassan defeated Republican incumbent Ayotte by 1,017 votes. As a result, things have been very tight in the Senate. Already, Vice President Pence has had to break several ties. Furthermore, Trump’s repeal and replace legislation loss in the Senate by only one vote.

While we do not know how Ayotte would have voted on the Senate’s repeal and replace legislation, what we do know is that there is a potential of 5,313 people who did not live in New Hampshire who have deprived the citizens of New Hampshire the right to chose their own representative. What we do know is that these 5,313 people have had a major impact on millions of Americans because Obama Care is failing America.

Millions of Americans have stated that they do not think that their vote counts anymore. This recent news out of New Hampshire will not do anything to help those beliefs. The problem is, politicians do everything that they can to make sure voting is as easy as possible, but in doing so, they reduce the security of the vote.

Voting is not a right, it is a duty of being an American. When politicians treat voting as a right, they rush to create laws that make it easier for people to vote without ensuring the protections that are necessary to preserve the integrity of the election. There is great power in elected office. As long as it is easy to cheat and the fines for being caught are very low, politicians will continue to try to game the system in order to be elected.

It is time that we secure the integrity of our elections as Amazon is required to secure individual’s private credit card information on the internet. To do this, states need to revamp the antiquated voting laws and bring them up to the 21st century. Increasing security does not have to take away anyone’s right to vote just like increasing internet security does not decrease anyone’s right to buy goods on the internet.

As a concerned American, I have a suggestion. Senator Hassan should not be allowed to vote in the U.S. Senate again until a special election can be had in New Hampshire to determine who the people of New Hampshire want to be their U.S. Senator. All 5,313 individuals should be investigated and if it is found that they do not live in New Hampshire, they should be put in jail for the maximum time allowed. This investigation should include detailed interviews with lie detectors to determine if there was some concerted plot by any group or party to effect the New Hampshire election. If evidence is found that there was some kind of collusion, then Federal RICO charges need to be brought against such persons and parties.

Voter Registration List Proves the Fountain of Youth is in Los Angeles

In 1513, Juan Ponce de Leon traveled to Florida to find the Fountain of Youth. Legend has it that there was a fountain that could restore one’s youth. The Fountain of Youth was never discovered. However, according to the Los Angles County Voter Registration list, it has become clear that Juan Ponce de Leon was only 2,455 miles short of his desired destination.

According to the Election Integrity Project, California Inc. (EIPCa), the Los Angeles County Voter Registration list has approximately 12,000 registered voters over the age of 105. Of those, 1,000 registered voters were born in the 1800s. This means that there are 1,000 registered voters in Los Angeles who are over 118 years old.

According to Gerontology Research Group (GRG), the oldest person living in the world today is 117 years old. GRG is the world’s expert on verifying and tracking supercentenarians (those over 110 years old). They clearly have not been doing their job. Official government records prove that there are significantly more supercentenarians living in the world than GRG reports.

It is completely inexcusable for GRG not to be looking at official government records. GRG is based at the University of California Los Angeles (UCLA). This is clearly the biggest cover-up in American history. One of the worlds largest research universities is not reporting that people live substantially longer in Los Angeles, California.

Now we know why the United States film industry would establish in Los Angeles County. They want to live near the legendary waters of the Fountain of Youth. Hollywood has been deceiving us for years. All this time we thought that Hollywood actors were receiving facial lifts and tummy tucks. In reality, they have been drinking from the Fountain of Youth.

EIPCa has performed a great service for the sick and aging people of the world. Their discovery of approximately 12,000 people living in Los Angeles County over the age of 105 will provide explorers the information they need to finally discover the exact location of the Fountain of Youth. With the inevitable discovery of the Fountain of Youth, Los Angeles will have to build larger airports and more roads. The discovery of the Fountain of Youth will be the largest mass immigration to the State of California since the Gold Rush in 1849.

Alternatively, there could be a completely logical answer to the discovery of so many supercentenarians living in California. That answer is that Los Angeles County is violating the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA). They are violating the NVRA by failing to properly clean their voter files of those who have passed away. Recently, Judicial Watch and EIPCa notified the state of California that they were in violation of the NVRA. Based on publicly available records, there are 11 counties in California that have more than 100% voter registration. Leading this list is the county of Los Angeles which Judicial Watch reports having 144% of the eligible adults registered to vote.

Maybe, just maybe, there is no Fountain of Youth. Maybe the GRG is correct that there are only 44 living supercentenarians. Maybe Los Angeles County has been violating election law. If Los Angeles County has more registered voters than eligible voters, it causes one to wonder what other election laws they are violating? It is a sad day when those who are tasked with enforcing the law have become so partisan that they are intentionally choosing to violate the law.
