Many Anti-federalists in fact opposed a federal system of government on the grounds that  a strong central government might do something foolish, such as abolish slavery. Just read what has come to be known as THE ANTI-FEDERALIST PAPERS, the answer to the Jay-Hamilton FEDERALIST PAPERS, and a sort of Bible for many a contemporay conservative. Patrick Henry, who refused to attend the Constitutional Convention, saying "I smell a rat in Phildadelphia" was exactly the kind of "states-rights" statesman George Wallace would have aprroved of. 

The Antifederalists were not a far left.  The label was imposed on
opponents of the Constitution of all sorts.
