Hi Bert. If you are a devout Federalist, and are thinking
of becoming a Republican, please do not be offended if I
suggest going one better. You should become a Confederate.
A Confederacy is a loose association of states and is much
closer to what the founding fathers had in mind. Under a
conferdacy, a lot of the pork barrel politics and other
apostasies of central control would be less likely to occur.
We were never taught what the civil war was really all about.
