“In questions of power, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.” Thomas Jefferson
The accusation goes like this: “When the Confederation Congress called the convention, it did so ‘for the sole and express purpose of revising the Articles of Confederation.’ But the delegates ignored their instructions. Instead of merely proposing amendments to the Articles of Confederation, they trashed the Articles and wrote a whole new Constitution instead.” Verdict NOT GUILTY!
