7 Madison's View of a Convention for Proposing Amendments Various interpretations of Madison's views have been presented over many years, in support of multiple positions in regard to the utility, and even the safety, of the Article V provision to the States to hold a "convention for proposing amendments". We are going to walk through this man's life, through his written record, to construct his position, and the continued consistency of his position, and provide the most accurate representation we can of his thoughts. ppt_icon.jpg google_slides_icon.jpg itunes_icon.jpg September 5, 2015  
8 Madison's View of a Convention for Proposing Amendments (Part 2) Today, we'll review the year plus after the Constitutional Convention, and look at Madison's writings not only in the Federalist Papers, but also his personal correspondence, where much has been made of his concerns about the States holding another convention. To what was he referring? What role do the State Ratification Conventions play in understanding his writings? ppt_icon.jpg google_slides_icon.jpg itunes_icon.jpg September 12, 2015  
9 Madison's View of a Convention for Proposing Amendments (Part 3) Today, we'll analyze the Madison's correspondence with George Lee Turberville in 1788, which includes one of the most oft quoted phrases used by opponents of the Article V "convention for proposing amendments". We'll include a brief biography of the man George Lee Turberville, of which very little is known. We'll examine the correspondence in the context of the political activity of the time - the State ratification conventions. ppt_icon.jpg google_slides_icon.jpg itunes_icon.jpg September 19, 2015  
11 Madison's View of a Convention for Proposing Amendments (Part 4) Today, we'll just introduce the historical context of the Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798, which led Madison to write the Virginia Resolution (and Jefferson the Kentucky Resolution). We'll especially remind ourselves how even our founders, such as John Adams, can easily forget the freedom and form of government for which they fought only 10-20 years earlier. ppt_icon.jpg google_slides_icon.jpg itunes_icon.jpg October 3, 2015  
12 Madison's View of a Convention for Proposing Amendments (Part 5) Today, we discuss the Alien and Sedition Acts of 1798, instituted by Founding Father, and Second President, John Adams, which led Madison to write the Virginia Resolution (and Jefferson the Kentucky Resolution). What is the historical context for these acts, and what is the final outcome of the two State resolutions. ppt_icon.jpg google_slides_icon.jpg itunes_icon.jpg October 10, 2015
