Excerpts From The Federalist No.3…

Concerning Dangers from Foreign Force and Influence..AND DOMESTIC…

Sunday, November 3rd, 1787..John Jay…

It is not a new observation that the people of any country seldom adopt and steadily persevere for many years… in an erroneous opinion respecting their interests…That consideration naturally tends to create great respect for the high opinion… which the people of America have so long and uniformly entertained.. of the importance of their continuing firmly United under one federal government.. vested with sufficient powers for all General and National purposes….

The more attentively I consider and investigate the reasons… which appear to have given birth to this opinion… the more I become convinced that they are cogent and conclusive…

Among the many objects to which a wise and free people find it necessary to direct their attention.. that of providing for their SAFETY seems to be the first…The safety of the people doubtless has a relation to a great variety of circumstances… and considerations and consequently affords great latitude… to those who wish Define it precisely and comprehensively…

At present I mean only to consider it as it respects security for the preservation of peace and Tranquility as well…. as well as against dangers from foreign arms and influence.. as from dangers of the like kind… arising from…DOMESTIC CAUSES…

O.K. I suggest you read all of the Federalist number 3… all of them are intertwined especially numbers 1 through 5…

That was a different era obviously in the United States… these men were divinely-inspired.. too obvious in their language…

The gist of it is…. one of the main…if not the main responsibility of our government…is to protect its citizens… particularly from foreign issues…

They had issues even back then with 13 states…and how power should be allotted to these states as opposed… or in conjunction with the Federal Government…. or the laws that were particular to each state….

The further gist of it is…that I see this as a good guideline… for the responsibilities our federal and state governments even down to local government… ( in light of the school violence that is so predominant)…

All of these levels of government must take the first step of being concerned…and being…RESPONSIBLE…AND ACCOUNTABLE… political correctness and agenda-driven ideas are not going to cut it…WAKE UP…

Not only is a republic democracy on the line our lives are on the line…
