There are current cries from self-proclaimed Federalists in support of a strong National government, saying that those who believe in states’ rights are the Anti-Federalists. However these self-proclaimed Federalists are really today’s current Neocon Republicans, Democrats and Statists.
Or maybe they are remnants of the of the18th Century, the Loyalists.
They are defining the Tenthers as Anti-Federalists. They believe that our current debate in this country is in vain, and our vision of this country’s founding is an illusion. They say that those in favor of states’ rights, the Neo- Anti-Federalists of our time and are the loser against the current status quo government of Neocon Republicans and Democrats. Today’s Loyalists fancy themselves a Federalist believing our country was founded on a strong federal government whose only obstacle at the time of Revolution was the states.
Are the current politics of our time really a Federalist vs. Anti-Federalist debate? Is this really a game of winners versus losers? What was the vision of the Founding Fathers in regard to our federal government? What really was stated in the Federalist Papers and Anti-Federalist Papers?Details
