For instance, the federalists claimed that people are sovereign, meaning that people are the origin of both the national and state governments, and that both governments should be responsible to them. The anti-federalists on the other hand, argued that the nation should be made up of states to which people give total sovereignty, and which in turn develop a central government with specific powers, for instance carrying out foreign affairs and protecting the nation against foreign antagonism (Morton, 2006).
