SS Constitutional Convention

This storyboard does not have a description.
We small states think representation in Congress should be equal, so that everyones vote counts and every state gets an equal say in the vote.
We large states believe representation in Congress should be proportional to population! This way we get a more accurate vote on how the majority of the population feels!
We will compromise so that everyone gets what they want and have two houses of Congress. One house, the House of Representatives, will have representation proportional to the states population. The other house, the Senate, will have equal representation. This way both the large states and small states get what they want.
I am a Federalist and I believe we need the Constitution because our current government is too weak and the states can do anything they want. There is also no one to enforce the laws, just look at Shay's Rebellion!
I am an Anti-Federalist and I believe we should leave the government the way it is because we just fought hard to escape Britain and their tight grasp on people's lives. The Constitution also doesn't guarantee people's basic rights, just like Britain!
We will compromise again and add the Bill of Rights to the Constitution, this will gurantee the basic rights of the people. Then we can still have a stronger government and the people's basic rights will be protected.
