Storyboard Text

  • I am Alexander Hamilton, a Federalist, I support the ratification
  • The constitution will establish a strong, central government.
  • A stronger government is needed to correct the mistakes made with the Articles of Confederation.
  • The constitution has many built-in safeguards, for example: limited government, separation of powers and checks & balances.
  • The two-house legislature provides balanced representation for large and small states. 
  • We will create a Bill of Rights as the first 10 amendments.
  • I am Patrick Henry, an anti-federalist and I do not support the ratification of the constitution.
  • The constitution doesn't even contain a Bill Of Rights!
  • The constitution will give too much power to the federal government.
  • The federal government will be too far removed to represent the average citizen.
  • Only elites are likely to be elected with so few members in the lower house of the legislature.
  • A president would have too much power for one person, especially with the veto power to overturn the peoples decision.
