Storyboard Text

  • As a small state, we never have any say in any major decisions! We demand equal representation!
  • Stop it both of you! We can find a way to make you both happy! We can use both of your ideas come up with a compromise!
  • Oh stop your wining! We need more representation as a bigger state because we have more people to represent!
  • I have come up with a compromise! A slave shall count as 3/5 of a person so the slave states have some representation, but are not taxed to heavily!
  • How shall we go about making this compromise?
  • We can make it so that one part of congress is based off of population, and the other part is always equal! That way everyone gets a fair say and is happy!
  • What a charming idea! Now we all have fair representation in congress and have come to a compromise!
  • Free States
  • Slave States
  • Slaves should not count as people to determine representation! If you are so insistant that you count slaves as population, it shall determine your taxation to!
  • My slaves should count as people! If they counted as people we would have more representation in Congress, which we rightfully deserve! But I am opposed to fact of counting slaves to determine taxation!
  • That sounds like a fair compromise, I shall have to agree to it! We both get the things we want.
  • Even though I will get taxed more, its nothing the larger states haven't paid. On the bright side, we do get more representation!
