Liberty Book Discussion Group - The Federalist Papers

Mike Kolls, Denton County's leading Constitution enthusiast, has generously volunteered to take us through The Federalist Papers. 

The Federalist Papers were a series of essays published in newspapers in 1787 and 1788 by James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, and John Jay to promote the ratification of the Constitution.  More than any other documents, these short essays explain what the founders intended when drafting our original governining documents. 

The Federalist Papers” discussion will start Monday May 6th – 7:00pm until 9:00pm. We will meet Mondays thru May 27th to investigate 33 of the 85 papers. A greater appreciation for “The Constitution of the United States” and our Founding Fathers will emerge.  The essays are available as a free download, or in numerous inexpensive paperbacks.

Please contact Mike if you are interested. He'd like to get some materials out to you and get a head count for the restaurant. We will meet at Tolbert’s Restaurant – 423 S Main St. – Grapevine, TX.  You can contact him by email.  [masked]

    We were very pleased to see that this meetup was to be in a mildly upscale, smoke-free, restaurant! We were less pleased that we saw no trace of any familiar Libertarian leadership faces. Shari and I arrived about 30 minutes early, sat near the entrance with my hard copy book of the Federalist Papers lying prominently visible on the table. Eventually three additional future Libertarians joined us. I did walk around Tolbert's and asked one group if they might be Libertarians, but alas, they were not. We had a nice meal, shared some conversation, stayed until after after 8:30 and said our goodbys. and went our various ways.
    Needless to say, all were more than a little frustrated at the lack of the program we were expecting. Shari and I drove about 50 miles round trip for this non-meetup. If we expect to attract and retain new people, this is not the way to do it.
    On a brighter note, we were most pleased to not have to subject ourselves to another smokey bar.
