    which is why i refer to madison, live longer than other founders, laid the foundation to the constitution months before the constitutional convention, offered more proposals than anyone, spoke more than anyone, took notes of the convention, worked on committee of the constitution, wrote more about it than anyone of the founders. about it.

    explained what the constitution means in the federalist papers......gave us republican government ,not democracy.
    The founders, including Madison, were in error when it came to slaves. They talked the talk, they did not walk the walk, and we are still working out the kinks in their very imperfect document.

    Funny that you mention "self serving", which WAS the motivation for NOT protecting the rights of Black men and women.

    Again, you can make your vague rhetorical pronouncements, the fact remains that changes in wage levels have not affected White youth employment since 1972.

    Stick to the context I previously posted and you commented in relation to if you want a debate on this topic.

    Yawn.
    The good news is we have managed to substantially reduce the negative effects of the minimum wage without a court ruling.

    Madison states every man is self serving, which is why we have republican government.

    it would have been impossible to ratify a constitution if the founders would have been against slavery.

    under the articles of confederation, there was not law ending the importation of slaves , as the there was with the constitution.

    under the constitution it could be amended as it was with slaves, under the articles, it could not unless every member agreed.

    the founders believed slavery would end with there deaths, however they were wrong about that.

    Again, that is not the youth wage, and if you think paying people less now in real terms than in the past is "good", well I think your values are f'ked up.....but then you are a libertarian.

    They were wrong about a lot of things, and it has caused the deaths of millions for us to get a little bit closer to correcting their errors. As enlightened as they claimed to be, it only extended to White wealthy land owners.

    You don't need to eliminate parts of or amend a perfect document.

    Damn, I've looked and I cannot find the words wealthy, white, or landowner in the US Constitution...

    And yet you can find that Blacks and Women were disenfranchised from the start.
