Anti-federalists thought that the Constitution gave too much power to the government and didn't think the people were represented enough. The anti-federalists thought states should have more rights.

I believe the STATES had more POWER.

It did not give too much power to the central government. Not one group had ample power over another and gave the people a more individual feeling rather than a strict union.

The antifederalists opposed the constitution because their leading argument, however, centered on the constitutions lack of protection for individual rights. Gabriel Marrerothe anti federalists didn't want the union to have a strong central government, but wanted more power for the individual states. the constitution was lacking a Bill of Rights, which is why the anti-federalists agreed when that was later added.

Most modernized countries believe that there should be equal rights. There are cultures though that believe that the men are more superior.

Anti-federalists believe that State government should be more important and more powerful than the Federal government. They also believe that the Bill of Rights is good and that it should be kept.

The antifederalists wanted to give more power to the states rather than the federal government. The federalists, on the other hand, wanted an extremely powerful, strong central government. They finally compromised on a constitution when the Bill of Rights were drafted, guaranteeing certain powers to the people and the states.

One of the principles that many Republicans believe in is that government should have limited power. In places where the government has more power, there are often dictators, and very little freedom for the people.

Some characteristics of the Democratic Party include that they are more liberal, pro-choice, and lean toward more government help and programs. They believe power should flow upward.

the religion classes are the classes that help you to believe in God and his power more.

They believe in states rights. The constitution implies that states should have more right to enforce the rules instead of the federal government. This is beneficial for the country because when you allow states to take control, the laws are applied specifically for the needs of the people on the state.

Democrats believe that those who are fortunate enough to have more should contribute more, and republicans believe that they have theirs and no one should even take a reasonable amount of it, even though their father probably earned it for them, and that everyone else can screw off.

State's Rights is the political idea that state governments should have more power than the federal government, specifically the right to nullify a law they don't agree with or believe to be unconstitutional.

There is an entire school of thought that says if you believe in something your mind has the power to make it come true. It has been my experience that this is more or less true. Therefore I would say it is inadvisable to entertain the idea of "Bad luck."

Democrats tend to be more apt for government spending and taxation to help stimulate the economy and create jobs, while Republicans believe that taxation limits growth and job creation and government spending only makes the government bigger. Democrats believe that the government should help the lower class in order to encourage their success, while republicans believe that the Government's war on poverty allows the poor to live off the government and discourages their success. Democrats tend to believe that the Constitution should be interpreted more loosely and in a modernized form, while Republicans believe that the Constitution must be interpreted as strictly and as close to the original text and meaning as possible. Democrats tend to be more liberal about social and economic issues, while Republicans tend to be more conservative. Democrats believe that more power should be given to the federal government, while republicans think that the federal government should be limited and state governments should be more powerful.

No, he was the leader of the Anti-Federalists and believed that States should have more rights then the Federal government. He strong felt that our nation was too large and diverse to be governed a single government. State governments would ensure more fairness and more representation of the people.
