There were differing views between the founding fathers on the strength of the national government when writing the Constitution. The first political parties in the US were the Federalist and the Democratic-Republicans(jeffersonians). The federalist favored a strong centralized government, much like that of in England. While the Federalist favored states-rights and disliked the government of England.
