Here’s an actual conversation/epiphany I had with my husband not very long ago while driving in the car.
Titaniumgirl: I’ve always heard that the Federalist Society was good, but wouldn’t the Anti-Federalists be the true good guys?
Titaniumboy: Federalists are the good ones, the anti-Federalists are not.
Titaniumgirl: That’s what we are told, but the War of Northern Agression was most certainly supported by the federalists.
Titaniumboy: But, we are told that the Federalists are good.
Titaniumgirl: We are also told that Abe Lincoln was among the best presidents ever, and he was actually an authoritarian dictator who suspended habeaus corpus and killed approximately two hundred thousand people. Every other country on earth ended slavery peacefully, but he was hell bent on wielding power and destruction to anyone who did not support “federalism”.
Titaniumgirl: Maybe the problem is that all of these law schools have elite “Federalist Societies” and they act like it’s just and honorable. The Anti-Federalist’s are overlooked, not even spoken of. The Articles of Confederation were a great thing yet we are told/were told in history class that they needed to be discarded because the government needed MORE POWER. You can call me an Anti-Federalist because I would like a very limited government. I’m an Anti-Federalist because I don’t like death, destruction and dictators.
Titaniumboy: (looking very confused) Okay, whatever.
