Storyboard Text

  • No President
  • No court to solve state and country issues
  • No power to tax
  • We aren't signing, we need a bill of rights!!
  • The articles of confederation had no president. This meant that they didn't have a main leader, or someone to guide then. No president also meant that there was no one of upper power to inforce laws.
  • People who helped form the constitution
  • Sign our amazing constitution nothing is wrong with it it is perfect!
  • The articles of confederation did not have a court system. This meant that when the states had disputes they had no place to go and have someone solve your problems. The disputes could also be between countries and there was the posibility of going to war.
  • common sense  
  • The government didnt have the power to tax. The US was also in a lot of debt and this was hard because then we couldn't buy new things such as wepons or supplies nor could we pay back the countries that helped us. We were aginst taxing in Britian so we didn't do it to our citizens.
  • 3/5 compromise
  • Edmand Randolph, Elbridge Gerry and George Mason didn't sign the constitution. If they would have signed it then we wouldn't have our ten admendments. They felt that the constitution was missing a set document that stated our rights which is known as a bill of rights as we know of it today.
  • Common Sense was an idea to persuade colonist to join the rebuliion and fight for our freedom. Thomas Paine wrote this andit worked many people joined the army and help in the war. He said that we werent gagaining anything from Britian and that we don't need Britian so we should break away.
  • The 3/5 compromise was for population regulation, it helped out in the southern states favor. This compromise was for every 5 slaves only 3 of them counted in population. The south had a lot of slaves and wanted to count them in there populaiton to have more representation but the north didn't have as many slaves and it was't fair to them, so they met in the middle and compromised on 3/5 of slaves counting for population.
