Back to the Articles of Confederation as America's Central Government
Patrick Henry tried to warn us - but we didn't listen:
In hindsight now, 220-plus years later, it is clear that the concerns expressed by the Anti-Federalists were correct. They strongly opposed the central government having more power than the state governments, were concerned about the federal judiciary and rightly feared the presidency could morph into a monarchy. Actually, the recent presidential election, inauguration and the related entertainment provided proof we have the presidential trappings of monarchy, the centralized power structure of fascism and the immorality of Rome's Caligula. America has come a long way DOWN from the original government established by our founding fathers, The Articles of Confederation.A few years ago, I would've agreed with this. But the undisguised glee exhibited by those who see the end of the old America makes it clear that reform isn't even an option any more. Only separation can save us now.
