Storyboard Text

  • My name is Frankie Federalist.  I am an American in 1787.  I believe that our new government should be a strong national government and I support the ratification of the Constitution.
  • My name is Axel AntiFederalist.  I am an American in 1787 and I believe that the Constitution needs a Bill of Rights before it is ratified because it does not support State and individual citizen's rights as much as it should.
  • My name is Compromise Charlie and we need to find a solution in order to get the Constitution Ratified.
  • We can keep the Constitution the way it is written.  That includes a system of checks and balances, three branches of a strong Federal government that have the ability to check each other's power.  We can also create a Bill of Rights. This would create a process to amend the Constitution and also allow for State and individual rights. 
  • How will these checks and balances work?
  • The Legislative branch will make the laws and control the funding of the government.
  • The Executive branch  approves the laws and carries them out.  The Executive branch can veto the law but the Legislative branch can override with a 2/3 vote.
  • So the Judicial branch would interpret the laws and the Constitution?  That might just work!
  • What a great compromise this government will be amazing!
