clearly an example of which of the following late eighteenth

00:21

century trends and here your potential answers are increasing opposition

00:25

and great well looks like g dobbs was worried that

00:29

the individual states had way too much power under the

00:31

articles of confederation This means we can just get rid

00:34

of a right off the bat supporters of federalism We're

00:37

all about a strong central national government not a loose

00:40

confederation of states The washington wasn't arguing against federalism He

the articles of confederation wasn't strong enough to keep the

01:27

nation together No surprise then that he was one of

01:30

several leaders whose arguments for federalism eventually led to the

01:34

crafting of the modern strong centralized american government even though

01:39

our bipartisan ism would have him rolling over in his

01:41

grave Sorry george maybe you could take out your anger 00:01:44.509 --> [endTime] on that cherry tree for you
