If the owner of a newspaper supported or opposed the new Constitution, they only published articles that supported their beliefs. Both sides of the story were not presented in the same newspaper </li></ul>
    3. 3. THE ANTI-FEDERALISTS
    4. 4. <ul><li>Anti-Federalists were the people who opposed the constitution </li></ul><ul><li>These people believed that the continental congress overstepped their authority by creating the constitution when they had been sent to simply fix the Articles of Confederation </li></ul><ul><li>These people also believed that the Federal Government created by the new Constitution had too much power and that the Articles of Confederation were better because The Articles give most of the power to the states and the people and the new Constitution gave a lot of power to the Federal Government. </li></ul><ul><li>The Anti-Federalists used “pen” names to write articles that might persuade the people to vote against the new Constitution </li></ul>

    11. 13. Convention held behind closed doors, should have been open to all. Too much Federal Power, at the expense of the states Too much power in the legislative branch can lead to tyranny
    12. 14. Necessary and Proper clause gives the Legislature too much power. All abilities should be spelled out Not enough division between congress and executive branch. Constitution provides for a standing army which would be under federal control and could lead to tyranny

    18. 21. The nation can’t rely on Civic Virtue to secure rights.
