How would the Federalists of 1812 view the current war in Iraq?

I have a debate tomorrow on this subject, and I would need some Political, Social, and Economic evidence on how the Federalists from the war of 1812 time period would view the war in Iraq.

If anyone could help, that would be great, thanks.

First they have to get up to speed on the whole situation, which would take a while. The answer totally depends on whether they watch Fox or CNN.

The Federalists were imperialistic control freaks...pretty much like today's democrats. They LOVE wars and little skirmishes (ask Roosevelt, Truman, Kennedy, Johnson, and Clinton) and they LOVE controlling others. They would have been all over this Gulf War business.

More importantly, when was this assigned? Tell us the truth; how long ago were you assigned this?

They would need a time machine, or someone that has a time machine would have to bring them video for their viewing. That's how.

I guess the small "d" democrat means ALL of Congress, not just the Democrats ....

Isn't imperialism more about good investments, not about getting bogged down in wars that cost $trillions/year?

You didn't answer my question. When was this assigned?

(P.S. Capitalization is NOT a family value.)

I taught House of Wayne

e walks alone under the big city lights
He always knows just when the time is right
He never shows what he's thinking
He keeps it inside
Because he's too cool for school

He comes alive when the sun goes down
He gets it right
You know he's always down
He's got one eye open and his ear to the ground
Man he's too cool for school

He's an operator
He's a real player
And if you mess with him
You know you'll never win
He's an instigator
Enemy eliminator
And when he knocks you better
You better let him in

He's got his own way of getting things done
He's always looking out for number one
Don't try to beat him 'cause he's already won
Man he's too cool for school

He's an operator
He's a real player
And if you mess with him
You know you'll never win
He's an instigator
Enemy eliminator
And when he knocks you better
You better let him in

He walks alone under the big city lights
He always knows just when the time is right
He never shows what he's thinking
He keeps it inside
Because he's too cool for school
Because he's too cool for school
Because he's too cool for school

I'm guessing they would pull out of Iraq and take a second shot at Canada.
