Great team visit to see George Mason play James Madison today. Huge thanks to for having us down to see them,
Robert Morris last night, James Madison tonight. Your turn George Mason. Does Thomas Jefferson have a university named after him?
“The real reason the Second Amendment was ratified, and why it says ‘State’ instead of ‘Country’ (the Framers knew the difference - see the 10th Amendment), was to preserve the slave patrol militias in the southern states, which was necessary to get Virginia's vote. Founders Patrick Henry, George Mason, and James Madison were totally clear on that . . . and we all should be too."
i am plagerizing this. but it is the best way i have heard explained to all you out there that keep saying guns are just for a litia and we have a military so its not needed. read it. its what ive been saying, but i havent gotten it out as good as this person. "A well regulated militia. As Noah Webster put it in a pamphlet urging ratification of the Constitution, "Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom in Europe." George Mason remarked to his Virginia delegates regarding the colonies' recent experience with Britain, in which the Monarch's goal had been "to disarm the people; that [that] . . . was the best and most effectual way to enslave them." A widely reprinted article by Tench Coxe, an ally and correspondent of James Madison, described the Second Amendment's overriding goal as a check upon the national government's standing army: As civil rulers, not having their duty to the people duly before them, may attempt to tyrannize, and as the milita ...
Today is a big day for the Mason men's basketball team with the seed in next weekend's CAA Tournament on the line. If either Mason beats Delaware or James Madison loses to William & Mary today then Mason gets the seed; othetwise James Madison gets the seed and George Mason gets the seed. The reason the seed is so important is that if you are the seed you dont have to face Northeastern, the seed and a team that beat Mason twice during the regular season, until the Championship game if at all. So Let's Go Mason and Let's Go Tribe!!!
When Obama died, George Washington met him at the Pearly Gates. He slapped him across the face and yelled, "How dare you try to destroy the Nation I helped conceive?" Patrick Henry approached, punched him in the nose and shouted, "You wanted to end our liberties but you failed." James Madison followed, kicked him in the groin and said, "This is why I allowed our government to provide for the common defense!" Thomas Jefferson was next, beat Obama with a long cane and snarled, "It was evil men like you who inspired me to write the Declaration of Independence." The beatings and thrashings continued as George Mason, James Monroe and 66 other early Americans unleashed their anger on the radical, socialist, muslim leader. As Obama lay bleeding and in pain, an Angel appeared. Obama wept and said, "This is not what you promised me." The Angel replied, "I told you there would be 72 VIRGINIANS waiting for you in Heaven. What did you think I said?" "You really need to listen when someone is trying to tell you someth ...
David Williams A Lesson in History Sons of Liberty: American citizens, armed and forming a civilian militia, not part of the regular military, fought against the government and its tyranny. The group was formed to protect the rights of the colonists and to take to the streets against the tyranny of the government. They are best known for undertaking the Boston Tea Party in 1773, which led to the Intolerable Acts (an intense crackdown by the government, including gun confiscation), and a counter-mobilization by the Patriots. Many of the leaders were Freemasons (Samuel Adams, John Adams, Paul Revere, to name a few). These freedom-fighters were instrumental in winning the Revolutionary War. After winning against the government, many of the Sons of Liberty and other Founding Fathers (Thomas Jefferson, George Mason, Richard Henry Lee, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Patrick Henry, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, Noah Webster, Tench Coxe, Thomas Paine, and many others) insisted on the right to maintain ...
is attending "Former Friends: George Washington, George Mason, Thomas Jefferson, and James Madison" featuring Peter Henriques at Gadsby's.
There are numerous quotes from James Madison and George Mason (who co-wrote the that prove you wrong.
James Madison's defense of religious freedom began when he stood with his father outside a jail in the village of Orange and heard Baptists preach from their cell windows. What was their crime? They were preaching religious opinions not approved by the government. Madison wrote on the fate of Baptist ministers to William Bradford, JANUARY 24, 1774: "There are at this time in the adjacent Culpeper County not less than 5 or 6 well meaning men in jail for publishing their religious sentiments which in the main are very orthodox." James Madison assisted George Mason in drafting Article 16 of the Virginia Declaration of Rights, ratified June 12, 1776: "That Religion, or the duty which we owe to our CREATOR, and the manner of discharging it, can be directed only by reason and conviction, not by force or violence; and therefore, all men are equally entitled to the free exercise of religion, according to the dictates of conscience, and that it is the mutual duty of all to practice Christian forbearance, love, and ...
Ban List by KrisAnne Hall on November 24, 2012 King Barry the Waster, has floated his new “gun ban list.” As evidenced in HR 1022 which was proposed in 2007, the Liberals are bent on disarming US citizens. What many citizens and legislators do not understand is that the federal government has no right to prevent any law-abiding citizen from owning or possessing ANY firearm. The Constitution and its history is unequivocally clear on this! Here is a little 2nd Amendment for Dummies and Tyrants. Everything we need to know was explained by our founders in the years 1787-1788. Lesson one comes from George Mason. George Mason, along with James Madison, is referred to as the “Father of the Bill of Rights.” Seems to me a good person to listen to when it comes to any portion of the Bill of Rights is someone who is referred to as its “Father.” Mason first explains the REASON we are to bear arms, and guess what; it has nothing to do with hunting and *** shooting…or fighting muggers! “Forty years ag . ...
Turns out, in the words of Patrick Henry, James Madison, and George Mason, the 2nd Amendment was put in place in order to keep slaves in line.
Borrowed, but true: New York State legislators possess the same line of thinking as Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini, Saddam Hussein, Josef Stalin, Mao Tze Tung, Pol Pot, Fidel Castro and Ida Amin. They oppose the line of thinking of: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry, John Adams, George Mason, James Madison, William Pitt, Noah Webster, Dalai Lama, Gandhi and Richard Henry Lee. With which group would you like to be associated?
OUR “FRAMERS” AND “FOUNDING FATHERS”: Of the 55 original delegates to the last Constitutional Convention leading up to the signing of the Constitution of the United States of America on September 17, 1787, only 38 delegates and one secretary (William Jackson) were present for the signing. Three of the delegates who were present refused to sign but eventually came back in the fold (George Mason, Edmund Randolph, and Elbridge Gerry). That would be 100% of the delegates present if they had it to do over again. John Dickinson of Delaware wasn’t able to attend but had George Read sign his name in absentia, for a total of 39 delegate signatures plus one signature by Secretary William Jackson. The 40 signatures on the final Constitution are: George Washington, President & Deputy from VA: Benjamin Franklin, PA: James Madison, VA: Alexander Hamilton, NY: Gouverneur Morris, PA: Robert Morris, PA: James Wilson, PA: Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, SC: Charles Pinckney, SC: John Rutledge, SC: Pierce Butler, ...
Only 1 more week until NOVA gets back on the ice! George Washington, Rowan, University of Maryland, Catholic, George Mason, and James Madison are all up this semester! Happy New Year to all!
The work done prior to the Federal Convention of May 1787 by the Virginians led to a framework known as the Virginia Plan. Most of the ideas came from James Madison, with just enough input from George Mason to avoid the appearance that young James Madison was trying to run things. Madison had discarded the old notion that each state would have just one vote in the national council, promoted the concept of a two-house legislature working with a chief executive and judiciary. Each of the three branches had separate responsibilities and would check the other branches power (Montesquieu's influence regarding the separation of powers was at it peak). Madison "conceived of 'a Council of revision made up of the Executive and a Convenient number of the National Judiciary,' who could veto laws passed by either the Congress of state legislatures. Provision was made for allowing the western states to become part of the original union, and each state was guaranteed its territorial integrity and 'a Republican Governme ...
The Filibuster; In configuring the institution of the Senate, our Constitution specifies that a bill that "passes" the Senate (and of course the House of Representatives as well) is then "presented" to the President for signature (Article 1, Section 7). That our founding fathers meant by "passage" a simple majority is not even a debatable point for multiple reasons. This is clear, in the first instance, from contemporary usage of the word "pass", meaning by simple majority, as the general rule of all other parliamentary bodies, and in dictionary definitions, at the time. Second, at the birth of the Constitution this was expressly debated, and the idea of a requiring a supermajority to conduct ordinary congressional business was rejected. For example, George Mason of Virginia and others objected to the provision of "a simple majority of a quorum of the House or Senate to pass legislation that would bind the entire country." Both but Alexander Hamilton and James Madison responded to these objections in The ...

I would like to take this time to thank James Madison, George Mason, Patrick Henry, and Alexander Hamilton who drafted our 2nd Amendment which was adopted December 15, 1791. God bless America and all of her gun loving citizens. Semper Fi

Even slaveowners such as George Mason and James Madison realized slavery went against republican beliefs and wanted it to fall
The greatest American socialists on redistribution. [Ronald Reagan]-"We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy. Do you think the millionaire ought to pay more in taxes than the bus driver or less?" [James Madison] "We are free today substantially, but the day will come when our Republic will be an impossibility. It will be an impossibility because wealth will be concentrated in the hands of a few. A republic can not stand upon bayonets, and when that day comes, when the wealth of the nation will be in the hands of a few, then we must rely upon the wisdom of the best elements in the country to readjust the laws of the nation to the changed conditions." [Benjamin Franklin] "All the property that is necessary to a Man ...

"We remind all within hearing of this Southland that a Southerner, Peyton Randolph, presided over the Continental Congress in our nation's beginning . . . that a Southerner, Thomas Jefferson, wrote the Declaration of Independence, that a Southerner, George Washington, is the Father of our country . . . that a Southerner, James Madison, authored our Constitution, that a Southerner, George Mason, authored the Bill of Rights and it was a Southerner who said, "Give me liberty. . .or give me death," Patrick Henry." ~George C. Wallace~
The Bill of Rights As Washington was inaugurated as America's first president and the infant nation set about to establish a strong government, memories of civil rights violations during the colonial period were still vivid. However, in the draft constitution submitted to the states for ratification relatively few basic rights were included. A number of prominent Americans were alarmed at the omission of individual liberties in the proposed constitution. George Mason, author of the Virginia Bill of Rights, refused to sign the document, as did Elbridge Gerry of Massachusetts. Thomas Jefferson, U.S. Minister to France at the time, wrote James Madison that he was concerned about "the omission of a bill of rights.providing clearly.for freedom of religion, freedom of the press, protection against standing armies, and restriction against monopolies." Aware of the lack of these provisions, George Washington urged Congress in his first inaugural address to propose amendments that offered "a reverence for the char ...

Doing an MAT lesson, found that George Mason & James Madison are both called "Father of the Bill of Rights". A joke is in there somewhere.
George Mason , James Madison is on my list
"The most notable attempt was that in Virga to establish a Gen assessment for the support of ail Xn sects. This was proposed in the year (1784) by P. H. [Patrick Henry] and supported by all his eloquence, aided by the remaining prejudices of the Sect which before the Revolution had been established by law. The progress of the measure was arrested by urging that the respect due to the people required in so extraordinary a case an appeal to their deliberate will. The bill was accordingly printed & published with that view. At the instance of Col: George Nicholas, Col: George Mason & others, the memorial & remonstrance agst it was drawn up, and printed Copies of it circulated thro' the State, to be signed by the people at large. It met with the approbation of the Baptists, the Presbyterians, the Quakers, and the few Roman Catholics, universally; of the Methodists in part; and even of not a few of the Sect formerly established by law. When the Legislature assembled, the number of Copies & signatures prescribe ...
"George Mason? What did I say? James Madison? Didn't they have a coach that begins with a C?"
George Mason IV (December 11, 1725 – October 7, 1792) was an American Patriot, statesman and a delegate from Virginia to the U.S. Constitutional Convention. Along with James Madison, he is called the "Father of the Bill of Rights." For these reasons he is considered one of the "Founding ...
Good luck to the new presidents at James Madison and George Mason universities.
I don't get why that ol'man doesn't get the fact that I don't wanna go to James Madison University or George Mason. -.-
Um, the new appointees to the BOV of appear to be a corporatist lot. Bear in mind George Mason and James Madison U are feeders for GOP.
"In this little thing called a state or a country, think of it as a country again, should you ever get out of line, we reserve the right, because we are sovereign, to dissolve you as George Mason and Thomas Jefferson and James Madison said, to reform, alter or abolish. We reserve that right. You are not our equal. Folks, you have to get this through your heads. The government is created by the people. It is not equal. You can abolish it. As Jefferson said, you shouldn’t do it for light and transient reasons, but you can. When it becomes destructive of the ends of liberty, you must. It’s not an option. You must."
then George Mason or James Madison here I come!
Good news !!! Jordan accepted at George Mason u waiting final word from James Madison u! Graduation at brcc Saturday! Praise the Lord!
