Framers of the Constitution

Write a paper analyzing why the framers of the U.S. Constitution were torn between creating a governmental system with a strong central government and building a system where most of the power would be positioned in the individual states. Validity can be found in either governmental orientation, so in your paper, fairly and adequately describe both sides. While this conflict continues today in our political discourse, focus your paper on the late eighteenth century – and this holds true for your examples in your paper. Give concrete examples from the eighteenth century, not the twenty-first. Include at least three scholarly sources in the paper, using APA-style citations. Include a title page, introduction, conclusion and references in APA format.
