The Federalists, the Anti-Federalists, and the Constitution They Created

This was a busy, but intellectually rich weekend for me. On Friday I was in Orlando speaking at a Republican National Lawyers Association (RNLA) event on voter registration,early voting and absentee ballots, and pre- election legal challenges.  I then had to fly to Atlanta to participate in a symposium that was being co-hosted by the Federalist society and the Liberty Fund, which gathering donated the title to this post.  It was intellectually stimulating in that we had the luxury of actually reading and discussing many of the Federalist papers and the Anti -Federalist writings as well.  This was the first time that I had read many of the Anti-Federalist selections, and it was interesting that some of the problems they anticipated with the Constitution were not realized under the original Constitution, but only after the adoption of the 16th and 17th Amendments.
