Storyboard Text

  • VIRGINIA PLAN
  • What the.....little states are screwed!
  • Large population equals more votes. We can do whatever we want!
  • NEW JERSEY PLAN
  • This is more like it! Equal representation in one single house.
  • CONNECTICUT COMPROMISE
  • Population counts in the lower house.
  • Equal representation in the upper.
  • A bicameral legislative branch with one chamber chosen by the people and the other chamber chosen by members of the first chamber based on nominations by state legislatures. Leads toward a stronger national government.
  • COMPROMISE ON SLAVERY
  • A unicameral legislature that had the power to raise revenue and regulate commerce and a unicameral legislature in which the states had equal representation and could choose the members of the chamber. Protects states rights.
  • COMPROMISE ON TAXATION
  • Thanks pal.
  • That's for the slaves.
  • Created a bicameral legislative branch, where the lower house was based on population and the upper house had equal representation from each state.
  • TOTAL COMPROMISE
  • Here we are today after the compromises made at the Constitutional Convention, a country still functioning.
  • Larger southern states wanted their slaves to be counted toward population for congress. The north which did not have slavery did not want slaves to be counted toward votes in congress thus the 3/5 compromise was born, counting 3 out of every five slaves toward a states population.
  • The two on the left DO NOT COUNT!
  • Three is worse than five but better than none.
  • After the Revolutionary War, larger states were able to pay off their debt quickly, mainly due to agricultural production. Smaller states took a longer time because they had less revenue. The national government then consumed the debts of all the states, which eliminated debts for the smaller states
  • Without the compromises on congress, slavery, and taxation the United States would most likely not be a country because larger states would be upset about how there population is not counted and smaller states would have debt and would feel neglected and representation would be unfair.
