I am glad the senate is balanced
Yes I wonder what would happen if there was more of one side than the other
I heard that states from the Louisiana Purchase are applying for statehood
I hope they apply as free states so the north has more power
We in Missouri want to enter the Union as a slave state
Yes, I will not give up my slaves
We in the North will not accept Missouri into the Union as a slave state
Well we in the south will not have Missouri give up their slaves
James Tallmadge: what if we gradually end slavery in Missouri
NEVER! The south will never accept this, Missouri will be a slave state the government shouldn't even be deciding
Henry Clay: I propose that Missouri comes into the union as a slave state but Maine is also admitted but as a free state to keep the balance.
Slavery will be allowed below the lower line of Missouri and banned above it with Missouri being the only exception
