        I am far from an expert on this things, but I am fairly certain I am right on this. The original intent was not to have a strong federal government, but to have the individual states handle most of the governing.

          In the beginning yes I think you are right I found this:

          The United States has operated under two constitutions. The first, The Articles of Confederation, was in effect from March 1, 1781, when Maryland ratified it. The second, The Constitution, replaced the Articles when it was ratified by New Hampshire on June 21, 1788.

          Under the AOC the states had pretty much all the power it caused trouble between states among others things The Fed Gov a very little control over anything .. The failures of the AOC lead to the Constitutional Convention they spent months hammering out the deal that gave much more power to the Fed Gov

          here is a small article

            After further thought this could be fun, televise it like a game show. And have them compete with grade schoolers.

                          I could continue this but I shan't. I'm being facetious and this is your damned literalism wrecking my fun. AGAIN!

                                Well, how am I supposed to tell? I wasn't around back then to know for sure, so I figured you'd know better.
