The Constitution of September 17, 1787 contains one Preamble and seven Articles.Â The phrase â€œthis Constitutionâ€Â appears at least once in the Preamble and in each of the seven Articles.Â The phrase â€œthis Constitutionâ€ appears twice in Article V and three times in Article VI for a total of eleven times in the entire Constitution of September 17, 1787 and the Preamble.
â€œThis Constitutionâ€ is the May 25, 1787 Constitutional Conventionâ€™s Committee of Styleâ€™s way of explaining that the Constitution of September 17, 1787 is not the Federal Constitution, the no laws no taxes Constitution.Â In other words, â€œthis Constitutionâ€ is ofÂ these entities:Â “Representatives and direct Taxes shall be apportioned among the several States which may be included within this Union, according to their respective Numbersâ€¦”Â If you pay property taxes where you live, Article I Section 2 Clause 3 is the real source of that tax, so wouldnâ€™t you like to swap â€œthis Constitutionâ€ for the Federal Constitution.
â€œThis Constitution,â€Â provides in Article VII that â€œThe Ratification of the Conventions of nine States, shall be sufficient for the Establishment of this Constitution between the States so ratifying the Same.â€ Ratification is the confirmation ofÂ what was done by the delegates to the secret May 25, 1787 Constitutional Convention and all that was a revision ofÂ the Articles of Confederation of November 15, 1777.
â€œThis Constitutionâ€ began as a revision of the Articles of Confederation of November 15, 1777, succeeded at that, but failed as a Constitution, as far as the people are concerned, when no Officers of government would adopt it.Â It has survived as the Constitution of the United States, because the United States is just another name for the territory and other property belonging to theÂ only real government in America, the United States of America.
