supported states’ rights and wanted protection of rights
We will protect your rights!
If we don't give the national government the power they want, our rights can't be abused!
We don't want another king!
If we give the national government all the power, we might end up having a king again. Why would we want that?
We want to keep our freedom!
We aren't going to give the government the ability to strap us down. If the federalists win, it'll place more restrictions on us!
