“The book�s thesis is, even for me, controversial. I provide 400+ pages of evidence that the Constitutional Convention of 1787 was in fact an illegal coup d��tat. The participants knew this. This is why they took a lifetime oath of secrecy, walked upstairs to the second floor of the State House (so that eavesdroppers could not report what was going on), closed the doors, and hammered out the design for a replacement government. Newspaper reporters were excluded.
These men had been authorized by Congress and by several state legislatures only to revise the Articles of Confederation (1781), but not replace them. Knowing full well that they planned to replace the Articles with a new form of government, the leaders of the Convention nevertheless agreed to the terms laid down by the state legislatures, and then went off to Philadelphia to begin the first stage of a political revolution.”

I have just posted my latest book, Conspiracy in Philadelphia: The Origins of the U.S. Constitution. The book is complete, except for the index. I am hoping that all of you will download it, print it out, read it, and spot typographical and other errors. Send these errors to me, so that I can make the corrections, print out a final version, and index it. I don�t want to do a second index.
If things go well, 20% of you will download it, 20% of downloaders will read it (4%), and 20% of these (0.8%) will send typos to me.
This book is an update of Part 3 of my 1989 book, Political Polytheism. While still available as a hardback from Christian Liberty Press (847-259-4444, ext. 6), that book is broader in scope than this version. Part 3 is also shorter and less documented.
