Is Clymer Fitzsimmons federalist, anti-federalist, or undecided?

A

Clymer Fitzsimmons is a federalist as he loathes a centralized government that denied him a chance to vote because he was poor. Given a chance, he would like to participate in the government by voting, but he believes that the central government undermined his rights. His background life shows that he has suffered a lot during the colonial government and has realized the negative effects of a central government that has imperial powers like the one of the British government. He became a frontiersman from the North West, his parents died during Pontiac’s Rebellion, wounded in the Battle of Saratoga, and jailed for two years by the British government; all these experiences made him think of independence. He holds that the threat to that independence he yearned for was the wealthy colonials and their imperial customs. Though the economic situation was satisfactory, he had fears that the common people had neither powers nor rights.
