When I hear someone make reference to the “Federal government” in terms of its existence today, I immediately know that they are ignorant of the system of government that is in power, and do not understand the very foundations of any of the constitutional systems that have existed since 1781.
THERE IS NO FEDERAL GOVERNMENT IN EXISTENCE TODAY IN AMERICA, IT IS A WHOLLY NATIONAL SYSTEM.
If one understands the 1787/1789 U.S. CONstitution, then one can begin to understand that those who advocated it were proponents of a NATIONAL government system, the BIG government that exists today was just what they advocated.
Those sly foxes, James Madison, and his conspirators clearly intentionally shrived to mislead the people mixing terms to their advantage: one of which was the by misleading the public by laying claim to the title of “Federalists” when in truth they and the other “Rats”, (ratifiers) were NATIONALISTS.
One clear example is the mixing of the terms “Republic” and “Confederate Republic” as if they are one and the same.
James Madison, and his conspirators did entwine truth as necessary to the Nationalists advantage in misleading however. Little has changed since James Madison’s time in using double talk to mislead, we see such today with the use of the term “Federal government” as if such actually exists today.
One such example is found here in one of James Madison’s conspirators, Alexander Hamilton in his own words states….
“The proposed Constitution, so far from implying an abolition of the State Governments, makes them constituent parts of the national sovereignty by ALLOWING them a direct representation in the Senate, and leaves in their possession certain exclusive and very important portions of sovereign power. THIS FULLY CORRESPONDS, IN EVERY RATIONAL IMPORT OF THE TERMS, WITH THE IDEA OF A FOEDERAL GOVERNMENT.”
For a “Federal government”, “federalism” to exist, there must first exist a federal system. NO SUCH SYSTEM EXISTS TODAY.
James Madison, and his conspirators wanted the wholly NATIONAL system which exists today in the occupying government but were forced to compromise and settle for a partially federal system and a partially national system combined.
The federal portion of the system was just explained in Alexander Hamilton’s own words.
He stated that the DIRECT representation that the STATE GOVERNMENTS had in the Senate corresponds in every rational import of the terms, with the idea of a FOEDERAL GOVERNMENT.
in other words prior to the 17th amendment to the occupying governments CONstitution a FEDERAL system existed in opposition to and as a check against a wholly NATIONAL system. Prior to the 17th amendment, the State governments appointed their representatives (Their SENATORS) to represent their State government within the central body, THIS WAS THE FEDERAL PORTION OF THE 1787/1789 U.S. CONstitution. Without the State legislatures appointing two Senators to represent their State government within the central body, there can be no federal system, NO CONFEDERACY of States, NO union of States.
The Senators are now elected by the people, NOT appointed by the State legislatures to represent their State government, hence the Senators no longer represent their State government, but instead represent the party to which they are affiliated, that being either Democrat or Republican. The State governments have no part in a union/confederacy between themselves hence NO union of States, NO confederacy of States, NO FEDERAL SYSTEM exists. The State governments must be participants in a union between themselves, yet they have no part in the central body, hence it is a NATIONAL government system, and a consolidation of the States.
Last, Madison stated that……
That the senate (as it originally existed via State legislature appointments) was recommended by the double advantage of a select appointment by the State GOVERNMENTS of two representatives establishing an agency to secure the AUTHORITY of the States in the system.
Without this appointment by each States legislature/government, their can be NO union, no confederacy of States, and NO FEDERAL SYSTEM.
