Why did Anti-federalist argued for the Bill of Rights?
Due to their past experiences with the British government, they found that a strong monarch or ruler was not the way to go with their government. They wanted the new government to rule according to the people. Their new plan for government did not include a Bill of Rights. It stated what the government could do, but did not list what it couldn't do. The federalist said that since it said what the government could do, they wouldn't do anything that wasn't on their list. The anti federalists knew that the government would find a loophole out of their selected powers and abuse their powers. The anti federalists wanted a list of rights that the government couldn't take away from them. The federalists stated that their new form for government was more open to amendments or changes then the articles so it didn't matter that there wasn't a bill of rights cause they could add one in later. The federalist still wanted a bill of rights though.

What best explains Anti-Federalists argued for the Bill of Rights?
There basically wasn't a bill of rights in the new form of government that was proposed! Due to their past experiences with Britain, you can understand why some people were unhappy about not having a paper that clearly stated their rights. It said what the government could do but it didn't have any limits of what they can't do. The Americans knew that the government would be able to find a loophole, so they didn't like the knew plan of government. The federalist stated that it would be a lot easier to fix then the articles and so they should just sign it anyway so that later they can make amendments and put in a bill of rights.

What year was the Bill of Rights added to the US Constitution?
The Bill Of Rights is the name given to the first ten amendments to the US Constitution. They were passed by the House of Representatives in 1789 and eventually accepted as Constitutional Amendments on December 15th 1791, when Congress (about 75% of the States) ratified the legislation. Clearly anyone who feared an oppressive central government could find comfort in the Bill of Rights. Also, any foreign government or foreign people or press could see by these first ten amendments that the new American government guaranteed many rights that many European governments did not guarantee.

What rights are granted in the first amendment to the US Constitution?
1) Freedom of religion (the government cannot establish one or prevent you from practicing one) 2) Freedom of the press (the government cannot tell the media what to print or not print) 3) Freedom of speech (you can say what you want about the government) 4) Peacefully Assemble (you can get people together to protest something as long as you do not become violent or threatening) 5) Petition the Government for Redress (you can ask the government to make right something you feel is wrong) 6) Taxation of the Press (the Government can tax newspapers) The above rights are technically not granted by the First Amendment. If you look closely you will not find the word "grant" anywhere in the First Amendment. You will however find the terms "shall make no", "prohibiting", and "abridging". All of these restrictive terms are directed at the government. The First Amendment amounts to restrictions that are placed on the government, not the granting of any rights. The reason that the First Amendment doesn't grant any rights is because all our rights belong to us and we have had our rights from the moment of our birth. Remember the "endowed by their Creator" part of the Declaration of Independence? What Jefferson was saying there is that each man is the possessor of their rights and they are not granted by any king or potentate. Thus the question becomes, what rights may the government restrict or even deny? The First Amendment and the rest of the Bill of Rights places restrictions on the government in regards to the certain enumerated rights that we already possess.
