constitutionOne of America’s most famous political rivalries was Thomas Jefferson vs. Alexander Hamilton, and it was a bruiser. The heart of the rivalry is no less basic than the American political philosophy and the U.S. Constitution: Republicans vs. Federalists, limited central government vs. strong central government, common man vs. elite, strict constructionists vs. loose constructionists.

Defenders of the Constitution’s original meaning, strict constructions like Jefferson, battle constantly against pressure to circumvent the restrictions proscribed therein for the federal government and to protect the rights of the American people. As Thomas Sowell puts it, “The Constitution protects us as long as we protect the Constitution.”
