Program #319 Cohost: Mary Websteris the author of The Federalist Papers - Modern English (Version two), and "the spiritual descendent of the Founding Fathers." You can also call her at 541-875-2477
The Federalist Papers Any politician that tells you "we don't know what the Founding Fathers were thinking" is either stupid, or deliberately evil. During the two years of ratification debates, Alexander Hamilton, James Madison, and John Jay wrote newspaper editorials promoting the new Constitution. Those commentaries have been collected together in book form, and are known as the Federalist Papers. Mary Webster has done an excellent job of paraphrasing them in modern English. This book is a "must read".
