The Federalist Papers Number 51 AND Objections to the Constitution Looking at BOTH sides of the Battle to Ratify the Constitution
Outcasts • Federal Paper #51 explained how the rights of the people would be protected by the Constitution • Explained how the government would ensure the majority would not become to powerful • Wanted to Create a community not dependant on the Majority • Wanted to create many different groups to prevent any majority from gaining power
Hit the Oppress • Madison also argued that Larger societies would make better republics • Large republics would create many sects, or groups, to ensure that no individual groups could oppress the other groups • The constitution would also prevent coalitions to become more powerful than minority groups
The Price was Right • One of the Biggest Arguments against the Constitution was the lack of a Bill of Rights • A Bill of Rights would Help protect the rights of citizens against the governments • A Bill of Rights would also help protect the States against the will of a national government
Pardon the Interuption • Mason Feared that Presidents would use, and abuse, their power to grant pardons • Pardons excuse those that have committed a crime from their punishments • Those opposed to the constitution feared the recreation of a Monarchy or Aristocracy
