Storyboard Text

  • All states should have equal representation!
  • The larger states wanted proportional representation, while the smaller states wanted equal representation
  • No, each state should get votes proportional to their population.
  • Why should the big states control all of the power? We're states too!
  • The big states argued that they deserved more power because each person deserves a vote in a democracy; the small states disagreed because they would be overpowered under a proportional method.
  • Why should a smaller state have just as much power as the biggest state!
  • How about we have a bicameral system in which there is a an equal representative house and one that is proportional? We can call them the Senate and the House of Representatives
  • They should absolutely not count! And -if- they do, then they should also count for taxation
  • "Other persons" should count as people for representation! But not for taxation.
  • The slave states wanted more representative votes and few taxes, while the non-slave states wanted to have similar or greater power than others.
  • What's your justification for counting "other persons" for population but not taxation? Are they people or not!
  • This is politics! We just want power and money, we don't need justification...
  • What if we counted 3/5's of "other persons" for representation AND taxation. That way the slave states won't have too much power, and will have to pay taxes for what power they do get.
