Become an Anti-Federalist

We're better than the Federalists!

No Strong Federal Government

We want a small central government. We believe local governments best understand what citizens need and will best protect citizens’ freedom. We fear that a strong central government will overpower state governments, and eventually state governments will lose their independence and influence. If we have too strong of a federal government, it may be just like having a king. We want states to have more power!

We Want a Bill Of Rights

Without a Bill of Rights on the constitution, there will be a big risk of oppression. We demand a Bill Of Rights on the new constitution. The Bill of Rights outline citizens' basic rights. There are 10 amendments, including one that states something like "there are more rights of citizens." We do not want the federal government to get too strong.
