Arguments for the ratification:  It'll make the country more united under a stronger central government.  Stronger central government means stronger economy and foreign relations. The government will be able to execute and enforce laws better. There will be a balance of powers under the bicameral legislature and checks and balances. The new constitution will appoint an executive head of the country.  The government will be able to create a strong military without permission from the states.  The states will still be having their own government as long as they follow the national constitution.  Arguments against ratification:  The states won't be as powerful as they were under the Articles of Confederation. The central government could become oppressive.  State representation was an issue.
