constitution will have to encounter, may readily be distinguished interest of a certain class of men in every state to resist all changes which may hazard
candor will oblige us to admit, that even such men may be actuated by upright intentions and it cannot be doubted that much of the opposition which has made its appearance, or may hereafter make its appearance.
so numerous, indeed, and so powerful are the causes, which serve to give a false bias to the judgement, that we upon many occasions see wise and good men on the wrong as well as on the right side of questions of the first magnitude to society.
federalism is the idea of having levels of government share the powers and responsibilities of government, usually this is between state ad national governments
a good example is school. There is the whole school,which we could think of as the federal government, They decide the most important things for the whole school. then you have the classroom. these are like the states they are able to decide some things on their own
federalism is so important because it lets our government run better. The national level of government is able to make big decisions that everyone should follow. however, all the states have different interest and goals. federalism allows them to make decisions about their own state, without needing approval from the national government
