Right at the top of my new that there are more states of than Virginia present at the moment. Basically like we have to figure out how to govern each other. So they decided to paraphrase, but they form a government, basically. I'm basically, they wrote the constitution until you have the major players of the federalists who are Alexander Hamilton, John Addison, kind of drew Washington who want a strong national government. They want to ratify the constitution. They wanna create a Bank. They basically want to create like a presence of government, you know, bold government. And then you have the people who are like, no, we don't we don't want your insane rebel literally just got away from England. We don't want a government. We I mean, we want government. But we want them to be like a distant uncle right with government. We don't want and we can choose. Yeah. No women telling me what the Bouch it, exactly. And we don't want it like under a new name..
