Federalists or better described Nationalists are people who support of the Constitution of United States the supreme law of the land. This is all of Founding Fathers who were Federalist, George Washington the first President of United States, John Adams second President of United States, Alexander Hamilton founders of the nation’s financial system, John Jay the first Chief Justice of the United States. They believed in a strong central government and weak states governments. They believe in Checks and Balances system which ensure that none of three distinct branches would become too powerful than one another. Which is oppose from Anti- Federalist. The person who draft Article of the Virginia Declaration of Rights and Anti-Federalist, George Mason refuse to sign the proposed Constitution and wrote “George Mason’s Objections,” which the content tries to persuade others join him in opposing ratification of the Constitution. And once he said that he “would sooner chop off his right hand than put it to the Constitution as it now stands.” Anti- Federalist Support Article of Confederation instead of Constitution of United States; they believe in strong states government over central government.
However, the Founding Fathers who were Federalist were uncommon statesmen during the time, the way they are thinking, and idea is unique than others. For example, they form unmonarchical government after the Revolution, which is unique and unfamiliar for other people, because when British colonized them they were under monarchical system.
