Following the War of 1812, the nation added Florida to its territory, saw the judiciary become stronger through a number of cases we'll briefly talk about, and continued to move westward as new citizens arrived and sought their destiny in a land abundant and available for cheap purchase. In the Monroe Administration, the relationship became a period of good feelings as the branches began to work closely together in harmony after the turmoil of earlier years.
The slavery issue began to surface as a major problem and a temporary truce was created by the Missouri Compromise where a decision was made that, following Missouri's admission to the Union, no other states north of it's geographical area would be admitted while allowing slavery. So the future was cast for an upcoming battle which was still forty years off.
I hope you will consider joining us tonight. We don't go into the "weeds" and we try to keep it basic and simple, but it is sad that so many Americans have no idea what our forebears went through to carve out this great nation. Understanding from whence we came is critical to evaluating what we do today and how it impacts our future. For example, the Monroe Doctrine, a national diplomatic and military policy statement that says America will allow no more European or other colonization or control of nation's in our hemisphere has been cancelled unilaterally by President Obama. The ramifications of this will show themselves as time goes on and, unfortunately, I doubt that will be good for American interests.
The show will start at 9 pm ET. Here's the link to connect:
God bless America.
