Storyboard Text

  • Hello everyone. I am here to share with you everything I know about the debate over the Constitution.
  • We hear that people are divided. Some are for the Constitution and some are not.
  • Correct, the two sides are called Federalists and Anti-Federalist. The Federalists believe that there needs to be a strong government and we should elect it to be put in place now to keep everything in order and strengthen our nation. The Constitution contains checks and balances.
  • As for the Anti-Federalists, they believe the Constitution does not provide enough protection for people's rights. Will not vote for it without a Bill of Rights and that the government could abuse the powers. They want more protection from a powerful government.
  • Can you tell us what Checks and Balances are already in place with the way the Constitution is written right now?
  • There are three branches: The Executive, The Legislative, and the Judicial. The president can veto any laws that the Legislative branch wants to pass. The Judicial branch makes sure that laws are constitutional. And the Legislative branch can do a 2/3 vote to override the president. They all check and balance each other so no one group is powerful.
