Anti-federalists were people who opposed the Constitution. They believed that the Federalists' plan posed a threat to state governments and to the rights of individuals. Most Anti-federalists saw the Constitution as a betrayal of the American Revolution. They believed that a president would be nothing but a king. They feared the government more than the people. Many of them also objected to the new federal court system. Finally, they feared for Americans' individual liberties.
