Storyboard Text

  • The Articles of confederation did not do that good so i think we should make a new one.
  • Agreed. We gave the states too much power and we did not have a strong federal government.
  • First, Lets tackle the big problem here which was our weak government and our checks and balances
  • We also need to recognize the declaration of indepedence and protect our natural rights. You should talk to the Anti- federalists about this.
  • 5 Minutes later
  • The Anti- federalists said they want to keep the Articles of Confederation, but they said in the new Articles they want a bill of rights to protect their rights from the government
  • Sounds good to me. We also need to separate the powers so one powers dosent become more powerful than the other. this will be called checks and balances
  • The Three branches of government should be Legislative, which make the laws, Executive, enforces the laws, and Judicial, Regulate the laws. Now what about slaves and votes in congress?
  • The guys had some ideas about that, they are; the New Jersey Plan, the Virginia Plan, and the "Three-Fifths" Compromise.
  • The New Jersey Plan gives each state one vote in congress regardless of population, the Virginia Plan calls for a bicameral legislature, and the "Three-Fifths" Compromise counts Three-Fifths of the slave population in Congress.
  • Good idea, now let's hold a Constitutional Convention and get this stuff ratified.
  • Why don't we just make a combination of all of them and call it the "Great Compromise".
