The constitution should not be ratified as it sets the ground for a standing army; a huge disadvantage to the people. We need militias in order to maintain power within the states. In Brutus 1, it reads “A free republic will never keep a standing army to execute its laws. It must depend upon the support of its citizens” (pg 314). In a militia everyone is well acquainted with one another, which sparks confidence knowing that these people will work well together. In a standing army, the officers have the power of punishing when misbehavior arises. This only sparks fear and lowers the chances of people actually wanting to join the military.

The necessary and proper clause is not reliable for the people's welfare. This claim is too vague and allows the government loopholes through power. Our argument starts from the words "necessary" and "proper". What do these mean specifically if each man in a place of power have different opinions and views? In today's age, the clause has been used in many debates that involve personal stance, such as legalizing marijuana, Obamacare, and collective bargaining (situations that commonly have 2 opposite sides); further proof that it's not mature enough to be used professionally. We can refer to Brutus 1 (pg 310-311) for an overall view against the clause, stating "A power to make all laws, which shall be necessary and proper, for carrying execution, all powers vested by the constitution in the government of the United States ... is very comprehensive ... and may, for I ought know, be exercised in such a manner as entirely to abolish the state legislatures".

The necessary and proper clause of the Constitution will weaken state governments, which will take away support from the national government.
