In the state of Virginia the total population of the state was 758,000 and only 89 of the people voted to ratify the Constitution, Only wealthy white men are given the opportunity vote for or against ratification,

In 1790 Census  the total population of Virginia for the purpose of apportionment in the house of representatives was 673,345 and the state was entitled to have one representative for 30,000 inhabitants. In the Congress of 1790 Virginia had 10 representatives and they should have had 22.

In the first Congressional Election in 1788 James Madison defeated James Monroe by a margin of 1,308 to 972.

Based on those numbers approximately 22,800  or 3% of the people living in Virginia 758.486 would have voted in the Congressional Elections.

:Lets see what major general Smedley Butler said about the US government activities?

: "War is just a racket. I wouldn't go to war again as I have done to protect some lousy investment of the bankers. There are only two things we should fight for. One is the defense of our homes and the other is the Bill of Rights. War for any other reason is simply a racket."
