Ok, so I have a debate regarding the ratification of the constituation. Basically, I'm supposed to address the delegation at Poughkeepsie (me, being a New Yorker), and persuade them that ratification is a bad thing, and they shouldn't do it.
I've been searching all over, and I really haven't found any good sources. I have my set of talking points:
-federal gov't will take away rights of the people
-unity is uneeded
-states should be independent and rule themseles
-states already have individual constitutions/bill of rights (something the constitution lacks)
But other than that, I can't really find anything to expand or to add upon that.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks. :)
