Starting a government is like creating a startup. When the Founding Fathers created the the government of the United States, they wrote a business plan – the Constitution. They didn’t get everything right on the first try, there were many revisions – The Articles of Confederation, the Virginia Plan, the New Jersey Plan, etc.
When the founders of a startup meet with venture capitalists, they need to convince the VCs that they have a solid plan and answer that important question – “How are you going to make us money?”
Well each state’s delegation were not gung ho about the Constitution. The Founding Father’s needed to answer an important question – “What are you going to do for us, your citizens?” So these enterprising gentlemen came up with a good answer – they created the Bill of Rights.
We will continue our discussion of how the United States government works. We will discuss the Bill of Rights, the different revisions that led to the Constitution, and more.
Everyone is welcome. We are a nonpartisan class that enjoys all points of view. Republicans, Democrats, Greens, Libertarians, U.S. Constitution Party members, Alaskan Independence Party members and so on, all our welcome.
