Welcome to Philadelphia I have brought the Articles of Confederation can somebody please help fix this weak constitution
I James Madison propose the Virginia plan. An idea that gives states more population and power in the government.
who are you?
Does anybody have an idea that can fix our government.
no, no, I propose an even better plan the New Jersey Plan and this gives EQUAL representation in the government.
I am William Paterson
Settle down what if we combined both ideas to make a bicameral government so we have both population and equal representation. We'll call it the Great Compromise
What are going to do about the slaves in the south we should count them as the population right ?
We should only count slaves as 3/5ths of population so you can count them just not all of them. This will be the 3/5ths compromise
I disagree in the large states we do not want to count them we see them as property.
Now what how are we going to control what the federals do?
Well with the commerce compromise of course this will prevent the Federals from taxing exports or attempt to regulate international slave trade for at least 20 years.
Hold on now that the people's problems are fixed we must make laws to keep both the people and their rights safe.
That's where the Bill of Rights comes in this will be the ten admenmants and guarentess individual rights.
Now that we fixed the constitution and we added the Bill of Rights we must ratify so we have protection under individual writing. All in favor say "I"
