Who were the ones who insisted on the Bill of Rights. Although once the Constitution was passed, the Federalists too supported the creation and provisions of the Bill of Rights.
Yeah, and the theory was the enumerating rights would be a bad thing, since it would prejudice unenumerated rights (since OF COURSE, the feds would stick to enumerated powers only). Thank God for the Anti-federalists insistence. Still in all, I have yet to find a SCOTUS cite saying the Anti-Federalist Papers are to be regarded as a tool for interpreting the Constitution.
