This should provide an interesting discussion.
The question is this: can you estimate the time period where the united state stopped following the founding fathers exact vision of how the government should operate, as detailed in the federalist papers, U.S constitution, and other founding documents?
The time periods under scrutiny are as follows:
1. 1790-1860s. The first time frame covers the administrations of the founding fathers and goes up to the start of the civil war. This time frame assumes that the founding fathers did not adhere to a static interpration of the constitution and found it necessary to fill in the blanks with regards to practical governance.
2.the second time frame starts in 1860 and concludes around 1900.
3. Time frame three is set around 1900 and lasts until 1932.
4. The fourth choice of time frame is from 1932 to 1945.
If these options seem limited, make your own theory as a fifth option.
