Storyboard Text

  • I understand what you're saying, but they don't because they just need four of the other big states to agree and our vote wont matter
  • I agree, especially considering the size of their states and the large population they have.
  • As a small state we should vote to have equal representation despite our population!
  • As apart of the bigger states, we believe that representation should be proportional to our population.
  • The small states will never agree with us, we are so much larger than them.
  • They may not, but if they do then we only need four states to agree with us to pass a law.
  • This could help the big states in many ways if they agreed with us, we would almost control the congress.
  • Big States
  • But we big states want representation proportional to population.
  • Agreed!
  • We are here to discuss the ideas of representation for the big states and the small states.
  • Well what if we made a compromise: we could create a bicameral legislature where the senate would have equal representation and the House of representatives would be based on population
  • We small states would like representation to be equal for all states.
  • Small States
  • Also agreed!
  • We federalists need to find a way to get the anti-federalists to ratify the Constitution!
  • I have started writing essays that will help persuade more people to be federalists.
  • That could help, but we are all in agreement that our class would be best to govern.
  • Yes, I know I agree!
  • As the Anti-federalists we must not let our states ratify this Constitution, it will be just like having a king again!
  • The Constitution will rid us of our rights and we will end up just like Great Britain!
  • I have heard rumors of something called the 'Federalists Papers' which they are trying to gain support from, maybe we should try that!
  • We Anti-federalists believe that if we ratify the Constitution it will rid us of our rights and we'll go back to the ways Britain.
  • What if we were able to tell you that we can protect your rights; will the Bill of Rights!
  • We can protect the states from going back into the Great Britain ways!
