NO 3: THE SAME SUBJECT AS IN NO. TWO
BY JOHN JAY, PUBLIUS
It is not a new observation that the people of any country (if like Americans, intelligent and well informed) seldom adopt and and steadily persevere for many years in an erroneous opinion respecting their interests. That consideration naturally tends to create great respect for the high opinion which the people of America long and uniformly entertained of the importance of their continuing firmly (UNITED) under one federal government, vested with sufficient powers for all general and national purposes.
Among the many objects to which wise and FREE people find it necessary to direct their attention, that of providing for their safety seems to be first. The safety of the people doubtless has relationship a great variety of circumstances and considerations, and consequently affords great latitude to those who wish to define it precisely and comprehensively.
At present I mean only to consider it as it respects security for the preservation of peace and tranquility, as well, as against dangers from foreign arms and influence, as from dangers of the like kind arising from domestic causes. As the former of these comes first in order, it is proper it should be the first discussed. Let us therefore proceed to examine whether (THE PEOPLE) are right in their opinion that a cordial Union, under an efficient national government, affords them the best security that can be devised against hostilities from abroad.
The number of wars which have happened or will happen in the world will always be found to be in proportion to the number and weight of the causes, whether real or pretended, which provoke or invite them.
The Patriot Connectors meeting is free and open to the public as a FORUM for citizens to share their thoughts and contribute to a lively discussion on the civic problems of the day. It strives to help citizens become more informed and pro-active for their country and in upholding the "US Constitution" and the "Bill of Rights."
Americans are richly blessed with a beautiful and bountiful country endowed with natural resources "from the mountains to to the prairies to the oceans fraught with foam."
"America is the home of the brave because of the BRAVE." The very fabric of this land is freedom, liberty and justice for all.

QUOTES FOR THE MONTH OF NOVEMBER
Stability in government is essential to national character and to the advantages annexed to it, as well as to that repose and confidence in the minds of the people, which are among the chief blessings of civil society." —James Madison, Federalist No. 37, 1788
Congress needs to do what WE hired them to do. Be the proper check and balance to the executive branch of government and challenge the president when he is operating way outside of the parameters of his office.
