The Paperless Federalists

Federalist No. 13 - No Well-informed Man - TPF13

September 30, 2017

Cary and Justin are back, and this time they’ve brought a friend!  Matt joins in to discuss Hamilton’s arguments that “no well-informed man” can disagree with.  The ever budget conscious Hamilton points out that one strong federal government will be cheaper to manage than any number of small confederacies.  The discussion gets briefly side tracked due to the awesome superpowers of the Federal Farmer.  When they regroup, the guys wonder if Hamilton was the Nostradamus of his time.  Does Hamilton correctly point out some of the regional fault lines that surfaced in the Civil War?  Does Hamilton undercut some of the arguments of Jay by suggesting that there are regional differences in the population of American, and that there is a lack of homogeneity?  The guys address these questions and more in this episode!!
