Should I buy the federalist papers? My problem is I really hate the Federalist Party and Alexander Hamilton and I'm worried the book will annoy me to no end. What do you think?

Thomas Jefferson called them "best commentary on the principles of government which ever was written."

Do not do something that will just annoy you - that's like the definition of insanity isn't it????

I don't know if it will annoy me or not, I'm just concerned it will. Next year I'm taking AP government and I've had people encouraging me to read it.

You don't have to agree with it to want to learn about it.

They just irritate the shit out of me. The exact opposite of Jeffersonian Democracy.

They should be required reading for anyone who wants to vote.

I think agreeing on conditions for voting should be a condition for voting

Consider an audio version. Downpour is a great, reasonable, audiobook source. I've avoided audiobooks for ages, but they offer a free classic download ec month & that's how they got me hooked. Now I've probably got 200+ in Wishlist & a dozen on iPod.

That's what I was worried would be in it, a bunch of aristocratic nonsense

It will probably strengthen your opinions. Never hurts to try.

Skinner, go for it. You should try to understand all sides if the political spectrum even though you disagree with it.

Why not, James Madison helped write it, and he was the main author of the constitution and was a Jeffersonian democrat
