Best Answer

Many were very sensitive to the development of a strong central government because of how they were mistreated by the British government before the Revolutionary War. The anti-Federalists wanted to prevent the formation of a federal government in order to retain their political and religious liberty. This resulted in a compromise, otherwise known as the Bill of Rights. :D

The anti-federalists were in support of a confederation where the central government is weaker than the states. They feared that a strong central government would led to a monarchy and that the executive branch would have too much power..
