Storyboard Text

  • Those Articles of Confederation are not upholding the promise we've made in the Declaration of Independence!
  • We'll have to host a convention. A CONSTITUTIONAL convention!
  • Our federal government is too weak, we need a new document!
  • We representatives from New Jersey think that voting should be divided evenly, not by population!
  • How about we do both! We can have two houses of representatives and a senate!
  • WRONG! We representatives from Virginia think opposingly! It should benefit larger states!
  • What about slaves? Do they count towards the population?
  • Well, they must count for something! How about a fraction... say... Three-Fifths?
  • I don't think so?
  • Yet with this new government we don't want to have one side have too much power, their powers should be separate.
  • What if one gets out of hand? There should be a system of Checks and Balances put into place.
  • We should have 3 different branches of government, Judicial will interpret laws, Executive will execute the laws, and Legislative will make laws.
  • You Federalists are all wrong! The central government is too powerful!
  • Unlike you Anti-Federalists, we think this constitution supports the federal government perfectly!
  • With all of these new changes we should make this new document, the Bill of Rights so that congress will have to ensure the rights of the people!
  • Awesome! Let's get this ratified!
