A Play Script Based on Federalist and Antifederalist Papers
Robert Yates- (Interrupting) Protect us from insurrections!!! The government that you fine gentlemen created will someday become a tyranny!! This constitution is calculated to restrain the influence and power of the lower class to draw that discrimination we have so long sought after; to secure to our friends privileges and offices, which were not to be ... [obtained] under the former government, because they were in common; to take the burden of legislation and attendance on public business off the commonalty, who will be much better able thereby to prosecute with effect their private business; to destroy that political thirteen headed monster, the state sovereignties; to check the licentiousness of the people by making it dangerous to speak or publish daring or tumultuary sentiments; to enforce obedience to laws by a strong executive, aided by military pensioners; and finally to promote the public and private interests of the better kind of people. This government will rule us with an iron fist!!!
