We Are All Federalists We Are All Republicans Said Thomas Jefferson


We are all Federalists, we

are all Republicans, said Th

omas Jefferson.

Let’s take

that in a cynical sense that

he didn’t: politics

– and the government policies that parties

put through – DOESN’T MATTER. It had no

impact on the way people worked and

lived, on their freedoms, on their condition, between 1780 and 1840. How true, untrue,

partly true, slightly true, mostly

false, partly false, is this?
