You know what drives me crazy?

hamiltonkitty:

People quoting The Federalist Papers as an authority on the Constitution.

Like, you do realize Madison, Hamilton, and Jay spat that stuff out as fast as possible for the sole purpose of trying to get those afraid of a strong central government to ratify it, right? That it was a propaganda piece?

Why are they quoted so often by  Federal Judges? They’re not official government documents.
