  • With me, we will not only have the rich making our desicions, we will allow everybody to vote!
  • Now we can choose our leaders! And Evan poor farmers like me can vote!
  • Because of unfair treatment, I have created the Twelve Tables, and the Rule of Law.
  • Now everyone is equal and not one person is above the law!
  • All day people have been telling me that I am not above the law!
  • Now, you need the Barons consent before passing laws!
  • The Magna Carta was an agreement between the king and the Barons
  • I am John Locke and I believe you need people to agree to be ruled if you want to rule!
  • I am Baron de Montesquieu, and we should have checks and balances and divide political power!
  • Yes, now the people will have more power!
  • So, since we landed outside of where England wanted us to, we need a system of laws for us colonists.
  • It will be the first form of government in the colonies history.
  • The lower party will be called the Assembly, and the people will pick who they are.
  • This will be the first represenative government in the colonies!
