governor george is only held a limited term in office. requirements for public meetings the legislature meet in public unlike the philadelphia convention which sat in the statehouse but ironically was closed to the public. they have requirements about the wall being published that intervened on the elections to give people a chance to express before the law could go into effect. the framers, people of madison, hamilton, washington were a little bit aghast that so much democracy have led to these paper money laws in the mid mid-1780s and they wanted to move in the direction of the government that would be more tr constrained or independent of the popular opinion and that actually could shut down the populist forces in the state. so madison for example wanted to get the federal government an absolute veto any law passed by the state, but that turned out to be too extreme for the convention. they wrote a provision on section ten which bars states from adopting paper money laws and from passing the better relief laws at th and the idea e national government with longer terms in

you, mike. we revere our constitution today but what was prodding george mason and some of the folks who came out as anti-federalist opposing the constitution? >> maybe the charge was you will create an aristocracy, they don't like the idea of perpetual ability for re-election, the fact you deprive people the ability to instruct or recall members, they think there should be mandatory rotation. they are worried that the people will no longer be able to govern themselves. they are worried about taxes in the same they that the revolution is about americans not wanting to pay what the british regarded as the american's fair share of taxes that supports the constitution and fight over taxation. the federalists say you have been forced to pay the heavy regressive taxes at the state level but if you ratify the constitution the government will take over the import duties and maybe the federal government will assume the state debt and we will have to cut taxes and you will not have to pay taxes on land, taxes on heads, and your tax rate is going to go down which is what happened in the 1790's
