The power of federal courts to strike down unconstitutional laws is not explicitly mentioned in the Constitution, but Brutus Political Thought in the Early Republic 21 accurately predicted that federal judges would strike down laws that they deem to be inconsistent with the Constitution. Brutus not only correctly foresaw the power of judicial review; he also correctly predicted that the courts would use this power to augment the power of the federal government as a whole. Brutus was particularly worried about the possibility that federal courts would point to such sweeping clauses as the ‘‘necessary and proper clause’’ as a way to ‘‘mould the government, into almost any shape they please’’ (Kenyon 1966, 342).

Moreover, the Articles of Confederation stated that amendment of the Articles can take place only if the states unanimously agree to changes; the Federalists therefore may have acted illegally when they suggested that the new constitution would go into effect after being ratified by nine of the 13 states, in special conventions that were nowhere mentioned in the Articles. The Anti-Federalists were troubled that the Convention met behind closed doors, without press coverage of their deliberations.
