詹姆斯麥迪遜對於憲法的貢獻 James Madison's Contribution to the Constitution

當詹姆斯麥迪遜和其他56位憲政大會代表於1787年5月在費城開會時,他們試圖修正聯邦條款,獲得結論要建立一部新憲法,麥迪遜這位維吉尼亞州的代表,成為會議中的資訊記錄長(記錄相當多重要資訊)。

麥迪遜在十一年前也參與過維吉尼亞州的法律制訂,他的「維吉尼亞計畫」也成為美國憲法發展辯論過程的基礎;麥迪遜強烈主張強有力的中央政府才能整合一個國家,大會代表愛該年夏天召開秘密會議、終於在1787年9月17日簽署訂定了美國憲法。這個結果是否意味著這部憲法就能成為這塊土地上通用的法律呢?

When James Madison and the other 56 delegates to the Constitutional Convention met in Philadelphia in May 1787, they intended to amend the Articles of Confederation. They ended up creating a new constitution, and Madison, representing Virginia, became the chief recorder of information (he took a lot of notes).

Madison had helped develop Virginia's Constitution 11 years earlier, and it was his "Virginia Plan" that served as the basis for debate in the development of the U.S. Constitution. Madison argued strongly for a strong central government that would unify the country. The Convention delegates met secretly through the summer and finally signed the proposed U.S. Constitution on September 17, 1787. Did this mean that the Constitution automatically became the law of the land?
