Who wrote the federalist point of view in the newspapers before the convention in Philedephia and who wrote the anti-federalist point of view and what respective pen-names did they use to hide their identity?
Those furious zealots who are for cramming it down the throats of the people, without allowing them either time or opportunity to scan or weigh it in the balance of their understandings, bear the same marks in their features as those who have been long wishing to erect an aristocracy in THIS COMMONWEALTH
I had rather be a free citizen of the small republic of Massachusetts, than an oppressed subject of the great American empire.
Nothing is more certain than the indispensable necessity of government, and it is equally undeniable, that whenever and however it is instituted, the people must cede to it some of their natural rights in order to vest it with requisite powers.

Unfortunately my original intent with this thread did not go as planned, there are either not many people in high school on ATS or not interested, But I have noticed how quickly people bring out the Hitler analogies when you ask a high school student a question. Interesting.

Obama is actually more of a "democrat", but really, what difference is there anymore? Look at the voting records, this whole show of politics has become a multimillion dollar industry unto itself with books, radio, and tv asking for your dollars to polarize your thoughts and beliefs into one of two camps. Meanwhile, the divide between super rich and poor grows wider than the Grand Canyon and all elected officials make sure you're too busy arguing about talking points to notice.
And, enjoy those teen years...nothing you can do now can change our system, not Ron Paul or any other politician can help, so don't sweat it, just have as much fun as you can and save the worrying about things you have no control over for much later in life!
