Storyboard Text

  • Legislative Branch
  • Today in the meeting i think we should not approve of the presidential meeting.
  • The president really isn't doing his job well, we should get rid of him.
  • We need to send more tax collectors out into towns, so we will have more support for our army.
  • Executive Branch
  • We must make sure the meeting of the new treaty goes correctly.
  • Judicial Branch
  • These laws are unconstitutional! Stamp these and send them back to the branches!
  • Yes sir.
  • The legislative branch is made of two houses, the House Representatives and the Senate. The House of Representatives proposes taxes and can impeach the president, while the Senate approves presidential appointments and ratifies treaties.
  • Full Faith and Credit
  • Thank you state representative.
  • The Executive Branch is the President and his executive officials. The President, who is chief executive, enforces laws, has high authority in war, and oversees foreign affairs. His other executive officials help him enforce the laws and advise him.
  • Amending the Constitution
  • As framers, we need to amend the Constitution so it will be just as important to our successors, as it was to us.
  • But President, the cabinet needs you to choose new members.
  • The Judicial Branch judges whether laws and actions follow the constitution. It holds the Supreme Court which is the highest court in land and has the power to review an action from the executive and legislative branches and declare it unconstitutional.
  • Federalism
  • Agreed.
  • The states must give "full faith and credit" to the laws and decisions of other states. This means that states must accept the legal documents and actions of other states and states have certain responsibilities for each other.
  • Very well. I will accept your document state representative.
  • The framers knew that the Constitution would have to change over time to remain relevant and useful to succeeding generations, but they also wanted to keep the government long lasting and stable, so they made changing the Constitution difficult.
  • The Constitution establishes a federal system that balances national and state powers, but both have their own exclusive powers of their own, while sharing some.
  • As state representatives we must divide our powers.
