Reply To: My Blog Post on Federalist 45


This one’s painful, huh?

Of course, all of these forecasts proved inaccurate. I think it’s too harsh, however, to treat Federalist 45 as a description of the Federal Government written by Madison last week. It was accurate for well over a century, which is pretty good, as far as political forecasts go. I also don’t think Madison envisioned, or imagined, anything like today’s DC.
