The Const-Talk Mailing List
Note: At this time, we have yet to implement the discussion list subscribe form since moving to our new web host. This form is therefore inoperative. Please check back later.
Const-Talk is a mailing list for people wanting to see a return of Constitutional government in the U.S. Emphasis is on ideas for convincing state government officials that it is their right and duty to rein in the federal government by enforcing compliance with the Constitution.
Const-Talk is a plain text mailing list. HTML encoded email will not be accepted. All postings to the list must be sent in plain text format. HTML encoding messes up the Digest version of the list for those subscribers preferring the Digest version.
As indicated above, a Digest version of the list is available. Each digest is limited to 64K in size as a necessity to avoid some spam filters which are suspicious of large email. This means that more than one digest may be sent each day in the event that postings are large and many in number. If, over the course of a day, the total size of the digest does not reach 64K, then at 8 PM (Mountain Time) the digest will be sent out, regardless of its size.
Normal subscription method (Digest = "no") is the feed method in which each message posted to Const-Talk is immediately sent as a separate message to all list subscribers. Each message's subject will begin with [Const] as an aid in directing Const-Talk postings to the designated mailbox via filters or rules, should you so choose.
All new list subscribers are encouraged to review the Mailing List Manners 101 at the TidBits web site plus the Mailing List Manners 102 follow-up article as well (and pass the URLs along to their friends).
At this time, there is no on-line archive of the Const-Talk list. Anyone wishing to create one is welcome to do so. Just be sure that all email addresses are removed from postings before messages are archived. We don't want spammer 'bots' harvesting the addresses of our subscribers.

"The strength of the Constitution lies entirely in the determination of each citizen to defend it. Only if every single citizen feels duty bound to do his share in this defense are the constitutional rights secure."
"... all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed."

"Success, recognition, and conformity are the bywords of the modern world where everyone seems to crave the anesthetizing security of being identified with the majority ... Human salvation lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted."
