Federalist wanted no bill of rights because they believe that your freedom and that your rights are limited. “Federalist viewed the Bill of Rights as a “parchment barrier” that an overly powerful government or a tyranny of the majority could easily and most likely crumple up.” Federalist thought to keep a more organized government was not to have the Bill of Rights. This meaning that they thought that having a Federalist government would be easier than having to follow the laws that the anti-feds were to have. Having the Bill of Rights would start a democracy.
