KNOW YOUR GOVERNMENT!
The arguments used by the Antifederalists against ratification of the Constitution included
I. The Constitution gave too much power to the federal government
II. The Constitution did not protect individual liberties
III. The Constitution protected the interests of small farmers against the country’s wealthy elite
IV. The Constitution took too many rights away from the states
a) I only
b) I and II only
c) I, II, III only
d) I, II, IV only
e) II and III only
The answer is d: If anything, the Antifederalists believed that the Constitution reflected the interests of wealthy merchants, rich planters, and the professional classes. The other three choices were essential elements of the Antifederalist critique of the Constitution.
A husband and wife were driving through Louisiana. As they approached Natchitoches, they started arguing about the pronunciation of the town. They argued back and forth, then they stopped for lunch.
At the counter, the husband asked the blonde waitress, "Before we order, could you please settle an argument for us? Would you please pronounce where we are very slowly?"
She leaned over the counter and said, "Burrr-gerrr Kiiing."
