If your have an interest in learning about the ORIGINAL American form of government, you can not start at any better place than the two volume set on the Constitution of the United States, by John Randolph Tucker. He is a deep and thorough writer; but he handles his subject in such a manner that anyone who can read English ought to be able to grasp what he is saying, and learn a great deal from him. Since our basic form of government was so drastically changed by President Lincoln's War on the American people (as organized into their various States) our original form of government is very little understood today; and we have an unending job of trying to force a Federal Constitution of , "We, the people OF THE UNITED STATES," to function as a National document. Reading Tucker will help you to better understand the problems involved; and perhaps suggest to you some ways WE can improve the situation.......or at least give us some idea of where to start in order to get back as least a modicum of what we have lost; and are losing; before it is too late to even try to return to that magnificent original system our wise Founding Fathers tried to leave us. Even though it was basically founded on principles and precepts which may be traced back to the Holy Scriptures; it was not a perfect system of self government; but thus far, no other form of government has come near to providing as much security and encouragement to what they called, "Constitutional Liberty," as it did.
