    No, I don't assume the 1860's. That would be as stupid as assuming that I assumed the 1860's.

    Thumbs down Dell Wilkes

    I screwed up and violated one of my own rules. I should have said the "Dell Wilkes Act". Dell Wilkes is the former USC Gamecocks cocaine user and football player who wrestled in the GWF, WCW, and WWE as "The Patriot". He later went to jail on drug charges so that he could find religion and become a used car salesman. It is in his honor that I refer to the Patriot Act as the "Dell Wilkes Act."

    fuhr52: What they meant is abundantly clear if you read their writings and inerpretation published at the time. Federalist Papers are a good place to start.

    I agree what they meant is abundantly clear. But like I said when someone questions this we have to rely on the interpretation of the current generation in power to tell us what the original authors meant.
