Absolutely right. The Founding Fathers had a difficult task trying to make a nation out of what was in the 18th Century a hodge podge of 13 different little kingdoms of sorts. It took years to get it together and even then the idea of a strong central government was scary to a lot of people. This necessitated the addition of the first ten amendments to the Constitution in order to reassure the people by limiting the powers of the new Federal Government.
