Anti-Federalists

Support states’ rights and want the protection of our rights

We argue that states' rights should remain powerful over key issues.

We believe this because we don't believe in a strong central government!

We also believe that the Constitution should protect individual rights.

We believe this because we don't want anyone to take those rights away from us!

We believe in powerful state governments

We believe this because we live in smaller states and think it should be fair for all states no matter what the population is!

These are some of the members on my side from the Constitutional Convention.

Patrick Henry- Opposed a strong central government.

George Mason- Leader of the Anti-Federalists.
