Not all of the Founding Fathers believed in a federal system, and for many of those who did, it was simply seen as the best option at the time. The country had experienced a weak federal government under the Articles of Confederation, and the results were disastrous. Many came to believe that a stronger federal government was the solution.
No. None of the founding fathers wanted a strong federal Government. They set up a federal system that served the needs for defense and trade between states and nothing more. This was the framework that they felt would prevent another King situation like that of England at the time or the bloated Federal system we see today.
The two are not related. The Founding Fathers chose a Federal System (a centralized government) because the Declaration of Independent, Constitution; Bill of Rights would apply to all citizens, and enable the Federal Government to build the country they'd just won from the British - whereas a system of of state and local governments would be a major step back in promoting security, economics, and growth. A large federal government? While it'd be fair to assume the Founding Fathers never dreamed of a government the size and scope of ours today, they were governing a country of approx 4 million people spread over 13 states. You may be assured they also never imagined men walking on the moon, a $ 3 trillion annual GDP, the atomic bomb, a 50-state country, an Afro-American president...
The Founding Fathers designed a government which protected the people from any one group or branch of government from dominating the government in two ways. First, they set up a system of federalism in the Constitution by which ultimate authority is shared between a central (national) government and local (state) governments. This is also called the Federal System of government. Second, the Founding Fathers provided for the separation of powers in the Constitution. This is a principle whereby constitutional authority is distributed among the three branches of government--legislative, executive, and judicial--which each branch having its own powers while also checking the powers of the other two branches.

John Roche saw the founding fathers as democratic politicians and nationalists. Their motivations, according to Roche, were to try to create the best system they could. However, the delegates at the Constitutional Convention were sometimes limited due to the force of public opinion, as the constitution needed to be ratified by the people.
America's founding fathers wanted a country that was prosperous, safe, and free. They did not want a king or emperor. They wanted (most of them, anyway) freedom from a government-sponsored religion as England and France had at that time. They wanted a system where the common people had some ability to say and do and live as they wanted.
