No Representation: Antifederalist Brutus No. 4

In his 4th essay, Antifederalist Brutus made the case that the federal House of Representatives could never be truly representative - because there are far too few members.

Blame the Constitution? Words on Paper Don’t Enforce Themselves A small, but vocal faction would have you believe that the Constitution itself is the cause of the monster state today. Another wants you to believe that the solution is to just get the words right in the document. But this defies the expectations and views of many leading founders, who considered even their own work a mere “parchment barrier.” #counstitution #founders #libertarian #10thAmendment #nullify https://blog.tenthamendmentcenter.com/2021/06/blame-the-constitution-words-on-paper-dont-enforce-themselves/
