53. Show how the role of the federal government was viewed by different groups at different times in the 20th century.

Thanks

    Depending upon the time and the group, the federal government was seen as the devil, as an unnecessary interference in people's individual freedoms, as a welcome provider of jobs and relief, as a money-wasting bunch of crooks, as a defender of freedom, as a protection against the Nazis, as an imperialist, as a necessary provider of services, etc.
