- The anti-federalist opposed a stong government, they feared the strongness the British had on the colonies and didn't want it to happen agian.
- The anti-federalist want to have states rights but the federalist wanted to have strong central government.
- The Anti-federalists were against the federal government having the power to federalize the state militias. The Federalists were for this power.
