Federalists

We need a stronger federal government!

Strong federal government is better!

The Articles of Confederation can't do much and we need a stronger federal government! The states have too much power and our central government is too weak. We need to pay taxes for an army and we need 3 branches of government. We can't trade easily because we all have different currencies. The rebellion Daniel Shays brought on was a wake up call, the federal goverment is too weak!

Meet in Philadelphia on September 17

We will discuss our Articles of Confederation and improve it in as many ways as we can. We shall revise it to make it better for our country.

Some of the Federalists

Our goal is less power in the states and more power in the federal government.
