What did the anti federalists and federalists have in common?
Considering this, what did the Federalist and the Anti Federalist agree on?
Anti-Federalists feared the Constitution would over-centralize government and diminish individual rights and liberties. They sought to amend the Constitution, particularly with a Bill of Rights as a condition before ratification. The Federalists agreed to support the proposed amendments, specifically a bill of rights.
Beside above, what did Republicans and Federalists have in common? The Federalists wanted a strong central government and a loose interpretation of the Constitution. The Republicans favored states' rights more than a central government and they had a strict interpretation of the Constitution. Another big difference was that the Federalists encouraged commerce and manufacturing.
