Storyboard Text

  • I think that the Virginia Plan should win because it calls for big states and I am from Pennsylvania which is considered a big state.
  • I disagree because I am from Delaware and it is considered the smallest state and we are being discriminated by the Virginia Plan. So, I am going to go with the New Jersey Plan.
  • The votes are coming in from the 13 states and it looks like the Virginia Plan is in the lead. After all, we are not wasting our time on small states, Mr. Patterson.
  • Mr. Madison, I believe that including the small states is crucial to the rights of all human beings. If you were in a small state, you would want a vote because big states are not the only people alive.
  • The Plan Election is happening tonight and we need to bring our ballets. Almost every state is finalizing them tonight since the New Jersey Plan only has one vote per state the Virginia Plan is more likely to win.
  • Ya, I heard that at least nine out of the thirteen states have to vote for one plan so it is valid and can be enforced around the world.
  • The Virginia Plan calls for a two house legislature, a chief executive branch that was picked by the legislature, and a court system. For this reason, members of the lower house will be elected by the people and the upper house will be chosen by the lower house.
  • The New Jersey Plan calls for a one house legislature. Each state is only granted one vote so there are no biased opinions from other people. Under this plan, Congress can set taxes and regulate trade. Congress will elect a weak executive branch consisting of more than one person. We argue that Convention should not keep the smaller states from equality.
  • After counting all of the votes, we have a winner! The Virginia Plan wins!!! 10 out of the 13 states ratified this plan so it was a close one. This will now be enforced around the world Congratulations Mr. Madison.
