Indeed, you are correct! That

Indeed, you are correct! That is one reason the Debates were secret and the notes remained secret for years after the Ratification, however, thanks to many within the Convention and those within the State Conventions the proposals of most of the Statists, like Hamilton and Morris were outright rejected. Even James Madison was a proponent of the Statist view, at least for a while, fortunately he later joined with Jefferson to combat the forces of Statism. Unfortunately, with the election of John Adams, Hamiltonian influence was increased, then of course, we have the Statist that completely destroyed the Republic: Lincoln!
