Next: The Politics of Ratification

Taking sides: Federalists vs. Anti-federalists

Federalists defined agenda=> benefit of being positive

Anti-federalists were mostly against the Constitution

Making the rules for Ratification “just right”

Why nine states? => (9 out of 13 colonies – RI = ¾)

Conventions of states vs. state legislatures

Legitimate Anti-Federalists issue:

Bill of Rights (Guaranteed individual liberties)

Protections against a strong central government

Difficult for Federalists to ignore
