Vocab words 16-20

Federalist vs. Anti-Federalist

  • Federalists wanted a strong central government, wanted to get rid of the Articles of Confederation, and were supported by large farmers, merchants, and artisans. Anti-Federalists wanted a small republic, power to the states, a Bill of Rights, and were supported by small farmers.

  • This applies to the U.S. Government because Federalists and Anti-Federalists were political parties/groups in the U.S.

  • Whether to support the U.S. Constitution or not

Federalist Papers

  • A series of 85 essays promoting the ratification of the United States Constitution written by James Madison, John Jay, and Alexander Hamilton.

  • This term applies to the U.S. government because it helped get the U.S. Constitution passed.

  • Federalist No. 10: written by Madison, where he talks about how to prevent rule by a majority faction and promotes a large republic.

Limited Government

  • A political system whose governing powers are restricted and not all powerful, especially when relating to its people.

  • The United States government is a limited government. The 9th and 10th amendment summarily showed the principle of limited government.

Popular Sovereignty

  • The principle that the people created the government and that the government’s political power comes from the people.

  • The United States practices popular sovereignty. The people elect politicians to represent them and if they don’t represent them well they could end up not being reelected.

Separation of Powers

  • A political system that divides the government into separate branches, where each branch has a different power but no more power than the other branch(es).

  • The United States government uses separation of powers, dividing the government into three branches: the executive, judicial, and legislative branch.
