Re: [lpct-activists] Feedback on chart

The chart looks good, but I would not use the term "Federalist" to describe our current state.
The Federalism is not at all representative of our current system as is actually more descriptive of what you describe as "Anti-Federalist".


Remember, the term "Anti-Federalist" was thrust upon Thomas Jefferson and Patrick Henry, not because they were literally anti-Federalism, but because they were generally in opposition to the Federalist Party's support of the Constitution over the Articles of Confederation. Both sides espoused Federalist Principles, and ironically those labeled as "Anti-Federalist" were more strongly supportive of them in comparison to a centralized government. Our Constitution, particularly as amended by the Bill of Rights, creates a Federalist system.

Subject: [lpct-activists] Feedback on chart

I was wondering if I could get some feedback on this spreadsheet. We’re making presentations this year to several groups disillusioned by our current Federal Government.  While we don’t have everything listed, we want to give the clearest picture (and contrast) as possible to reach the widest audience.  We know technically the Government considers itself a Republic restricted by the Constitution. This comparison is about what we believe is really happening.  This is not a fix all solution as many here have pet issues they want to see resolved.  It is rather a window into a possible future Federal Government more in line with the Anti-Federalist positions in the past and what they might look like in the present. 


Thank you all in advance for your time.
