Slavery

Slavery,theoretically and from a strategic planning perspective the framework of the United States evolved with Constitutional Convention, but Slavery existed before the American Constitution.

For instance the following information was collected from the internet and shows some of the changes if any that have evolved from the very beginning in the United States.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.Distribution of slaves.

The above shows that the overwhelming majority of United States of America Presidents were elected based upon their bias of being slave owners as I believed. It was the strategic planning of the majority of the power elite to a President that supports slavery based upon his credentials. The type of support that the majority of states wanted were favorable laws for the status quo of being in the event of run away slaves the respective states were obligated by the law to return the slaves. This was the compromise that was negotiated during the constitutional convention. home page
