Best Answer

The Anti-Federalistsâ?? major criticism of the Constitution was that there was no Bill of Rights that protected the individual from a strong central government included at the time. The Anti-Federalists preferred strong state governments and a weak national government like how the Articles of Confederation had worked as opposed to the Federalistsâ?? preference for a strong central government, which they feared was too much like a monarchy.
