Good post, i've always been into this stuff.

What really interests me is the ANTI-federalist papers. Read those and you'll see the argument against establishing a central authority. And what's funny is everything they were afraid of... has come true. The anti-federalists are the reason we have a bill of rights. The federalists were quick to move and establish the federal government with only the checks and balances that were designed, and no safeguards for individual liberty whatsoever. Read what George Mason said in 1788 about politicians and the "federal town" of D.C...

"Those gentlemen, who will be elected senators will fix themselves in the federal town and become citizens of that town more than of your own state."

How True.
