    In 1787, fifty-five delegates met at the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia. There, they created ideas about a new type of government, called federalism. In this type of government, they decided: 1. The federal government would have more power than before. However, power would be divided between the states and the federal government, so the ...

    Some of the Founding Fathers argued strongly for federalism, especially James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, and John Jay. They created the strongest defense of the new Constitution in a book called The Federalist Papers. This was a collection of 85 essays supporting federalism. Its goal was to convince people to vote to ratify the Constitution.[a] A...

    The new Constitution took effect on March 4, 1789. That same year, Congress wrote and proposed twelve amendments to the Constitution. Three-fourths of the states would have to ratify these amendments in order to add them to the Constitution. The states ratified ten amendments on December 15, 1791. Together, they became the Bill of Rights. The Tenth...

    Jefferson was not an anti-Federalist. As I understand it, he thought there should be a Bill of Rights, but thought the Constitution was basically good. As the then US Minister to France, he was not in a position to have a public position on it one way or the other. john k18:59, 20 April 2006 (UTC)

    Can I rename this article to Federalism in the United States to bring in line with Federalism in Australia? AndrewRT(Talk) 21:47, 8 December 2006 (UTC) 1. Quite an odd reasonong. By that standard, Federalism in Australia should be moved to Australian federalism to be in line with Canadian federalism. Which has been at that title the whole 3 years s...

    Seriously, it gives little information on the Federalists, or what they believed. You can learn more about them through the Federalist Papers article and the Anti-Federalist articles. 1. It's not about the Federalist party, its about the system of federalism in the Unites States. Next time come a little more informed before you condemn an entire ar...

    The Constitution states that the United States is comprised of a number of seperate states, not divided into a number of seperate states.Jgharston (talk) 19:43, 12 December 2010 (UTC)

    Shared Sovereignty currently redirects to this article. Wouldn't it make more sense for it to redirect to Sovereignty, or its section on Shared Sovreignty, or the article on Condominium? I'm not really sure why this term redirects to this article, rather than articles about the term itself...2607:8400:2802:10:250:56FF:FEAB:339C (talk) 06:58, 3 Febr...

    Maybe it's just my own bias, but this article doesn't strike me as neutral enough in tone. It seems to be explaining how the Federal government slowly took power from the states as if that was a good thing (in most places), but I assure you that not everyone agrees with that viewpoint. I mean, perhaps it's clever of the Federals to "reach directly ...

    A large section of this article is totally plagiarized from a separate website; specifically "Despite the Supreme Court’s stubbornness on guarding states’ rights, much of the modern federal apparatus owes its origins to changes that occurred during the period between 1861 and 1933. While banks had long been incorporated and regulated by the states,...
