the federal government wouldn't be too powerful, considering that there are many built-in safeguards to the constitution life a limited government, separation of powers, and checks and balances. In the Tenth Amendment of the Constitution, it states that "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." Which means that any power that is not given to the federal government is given to the people/states, so the people/states still have power. Also during the ratification process, twelve amendments to the constitution were passed and ten were ratified by the states (this was known as the Bill of Rights) which covered the concerns over the lack of protection of individual liberties.

The Articles of Confederation gave the states too much power, which meant there was too much of democracy. The national government was weak and was decentralized. Under the Articles of Confederation, the national government was not able to tax the states, but instead, the states were able to tax and some would tax relentlessly; which was a reasoning behind Shay's Rebellion. There was also no national currency and so each state has their own currency. This caused problems between states whenever there were trades between said states since they would have to convert currencies to meet the other states currency. Another problem was that there was no congressional power over commerce. States would fight over state boarders and other problems that would occur between states and this almost caused a war between states. States didn't have a strong centralized government to handle these situations or give them a certain structure.
