    Would most of today's Tea Partyers and Conservatives have ratified the Constitution ...

    ... or, would they have been satisfied with a slightly stregnthened Articles of Confederation? 

    I have would have made this a poll in one of my hubs but since most people who read hubs seem to have an aversion to voting, go figure, I thought I might get more written responses.

    Tea Party people, at least the ones I know, love the Constitution, especially its original meaning.  They tend to have actually read the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence, Common Sense and the Federalist.

    Most Libertarians I know have more problems with the Constitution than with the Articles of Confederation.

    Most liberals I know do not comprehend the Natural Law Theory, the Declaration, Constitution or Federalist.

    I actually addressed this question (more or less) in a hub a while back. It's hard to say. People with a general aversion toward federal government power would have had some issues with the Constitution when it was first created. But it's hard to make general statements about the so-called "Tea Party." I don't see it as a single cohesive movement. People assigned this label seem to vary in their Constitutional literacy, and I doubt that those who have actually read it interpret everything in the same way.

    I don't mean to use this as a promo for one of my own hubs, but in all candor I think it went a long way to answering this question.  It's called "My Conversation with the Founding Fathers" if anyone's interested.  And, yes, I am a conservative.
