Summary: Manuel José González and Scipión García Herreros, both elected Representantes to the Cámara, argue here that federalism was not the ideal government model for Colombia. They both considered the nation too politically, socially and economically immature to adopt a federalist system.
Historical Notes: The Confederación Granadina was the union of the nine Colombian states from 1858 to 1861 under which they functioned as semi-sovereign entities. This government model was created by the 1858 constitution and its only president was Mariano Ospina Rodríguez. Davis, Robert 1977 Confederación Granadina In Historical Dictionary of Colombia. Pp. 92. Metuchen, NJ: The Scarecrow Press.
Donor Notes: A measured consideration, using the example of contemporary Mexico, of the federalist ideal. The writers, congressman, are against federalism, alleging Nueva Granada's political immaturity. - J.L.H.
