  • Whats that?
  • I think its time to add the Articles because it was the first constitution in the U.S!
  • No thank you, that on was ratified 1781 which was replaced by the Constitution in 1781. We are going to talk about the Constitutional convention
  • That was lot of information you just said...
  • 5 minutes later
  • Im sorry...
  • Legislative branch: makes laws and changes existing laws based on the Constitution and the Bill of Rights
  • Stick in im going to tell you every thing you need to know about Constitutional history
  • I cant believe you dont know what is Constitutional Convention... smh
  • it is a Convention in Philadelphia in 1787. and each representative from each former colonies except for Rhode Island was framed.
  • People in the house have been talking about the New Jersey plan, Virginia plan, the Great Compromise and that other one called Three Fifths Compromise?
  • 1 hour later from being outside
  • Thats a great question. The New Jersey plan is a single house with equal representation for each state. The Virginia Plan was a bicameral legislative branch with representation based on population. The Great Compromise had one House based on population and the other House was equal representation . Then the last one you asked which was the three compromise and that is the population of slaves and they would be counted as three fifths.
  • Hey I don't mean to butt in but since you guys are learning about some pretty cool stuff what is Separation of Powers and Checks and Balances
  • Executive Branch: executes laws Judicial branch: interprets laws Legislative Branch: makes the laws
  • Your good and those are actually pretty common since. Basically the seperation is an act vesting legislative, Executive and Judicial powers in separate bodies, and the Checks and Balances is a counterbalancing basically influences the organization or systems.
  • Last question and I'll be on my way... what's the difference between the Federalists and Anti-Federalists?
  • Awesome and the difference is the federalist wanted a stronger National Government and also they wanted to help manage the tensions from the American Revolutionary war and the Anti Federalist were opposed the development of a strong Federal government.
  • Thanks for your time. Cant wait to have another conversation with you!
  • It seems I have to go but I just want to know what are Bill of Rights and I heard you say ratification at some point what does that mean?
  • Yeah anytime! you have a great rest of your day
  • Awesome!! well the Bill of Rights are, are 10 Amendments and ratification means is the official way to confirm the Constitution.
