Want to create your own government? You couldn't have better examples than the founding fathers of the USA. I found this wonderful reference to the Anti-Federalist and Federalist Papers in chronological context that shows how they went about it.

Light reading it ain't, but it's not too hard to digest in small chunks. The gold nugget that leads me to write this blog post is the opening of the main debate of the Constitutional Convention, which lays out the reasons we need government and what it ought to do.

We had a confederation for eight years before we became a republic. Not everyone agreed that a change was necessary. There was a lot of debate. This site lays it all out for your edification.

That's great politics.
