The Antifederalists

One problem with the argument that you are making is that Anti federalists were more about the power of the people than anything else. However, their concern was functionally in the Government not having as much say so in the powers and concerns of the state. During that time anti-federalists were more focused on expansion into Native American territory and other lands to extend the practice of slavery. The “people” that they were a concern about preserving the rights were for Anglo-Americans, not anyone else.
