For some time I have understood it began at the beginning.

These links you have provided add substance to that understanding.

In other words the situation today is simply the result of 220 years of development of the Federalist Party spirit from generation to generation with the gradual imposition of control from the centre on the entire nation.

It seems to me to be an intractable problem and one that will not easily be resolved absent divine intervention so that is where I have placed my hope.

"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)
