May 31, 2019 - From "Colonial Assemblies" to American Assemblies? -
Inspired to start a new message here in order to post the following comment that I appreciated reading at Paul Stramer's site (however no additional comments were apparently being allowed there).

American Assemblies back in colonial times were referred to as "colonial assemblies". See the following:
Suspension of colonial assemblies
COLONIAL ASSEMBLIES -
What Were Colonial Assemblies? -
"Colonial assemblies were the first official forms of popular representation founded in the American colonies prior to the Revolutionary War. According to Northern State University, they provided the initial taste the colonies had for self-government and served as the forerunners for future representational bodies that emerged during and after the Revolution.
Proof positive, our American States Assemblies are on solid ground.
In the initial reading of the last line (in the above quote) this blog-writer felt a certain physical relief and wished to say: Thank You "Ready"!
However - there apparently is a substantial distinctive difference between that which constitutes the "representational" (namely representatives) and the original state "delegates." Therefore - it might be a good thing that this writer wasn't able to post his comment at Paul's site until he has "full disclosure" on this reference. ; ~ )
American States Assemblies, colonial assemblies, popular representation, self-government, representational bodies, delegates
