Best Answer

Federalists did not fear the government. Anit-federalists did. During the late 1700s the Articles of Confederation was being rethought as the constitution of America. When the Constitution was proposed, Anti-federalists believed it was too powerful nationally and could become a monarchy or Dictatorship. They also thought it took individual power away from the states.
