  2. I always thought that the Tenth Amendment should have been made the First Amendment. It would have raised the level of its importance. I assume the enumeration of the Bill of Rights was debated by the federalists and anti federalists but I never researched it.

  3. Yours is the single most underrated channel on YouTube. You should publish short, sweet videos like this every day, and put them on Facebook, where most people now get their news. The Statists are winning the social media game, and we need to catch up.
