Were the framers of the Constitution during the 20th century in the American colonies democrats or elitists, or both?

  • History -

    20th century? Don't you mean the 18th century?

    What do you think the answer is? Why?

  • History -

    Yes, the 18th century is correct. I think they were both because some of the articles were basing on poor self interests.

  • History -

    I agree. The framers of the Constitution were elitists and democrats. They believed that every white man should be able to vote -- but excluded women and African-Americans from full citizenship.
