If you are asking about the American government the constitution was written by the elite of the colonies. They were lawyers, plantation owners, business owners, and the wealthy. The 55 men were the aristocracy of the colonies so there was no doubt who was in control from the very start. Washington was very wealthy, a plantation owner, and even distilled whiskey sold in the colonies.
