When contemporary observers look back to the Constitutional Convention of 1787, through which the foundation for the present 'republican' form of American government was laid, it is difficult not to think that one would most certainly have voted to ratify the Constitution. The ensuing history of the United States has been too full of positives for most present-day Americans to consider seriously that an alternative form of government would have been preferable. Given the massive size and power of today's American federal government, which has become increasingly invasive despite its undeniably positive accomplishments, however, one could conceivably look back to 1787 and think that voting against that particular Constitution might have been wiser.
