Lets go with my plan, the Great Compromise. All power is equally shared.
Slaves should be counted
Great! Now how should slaves be counted for represntation?
Slaves should be property
Sounds good to me.
How about we count slaves as 3/5's of a person?
So Roger Sherman created the Great Compromise, where there will be two houses. One will be based on population, the House of Representatives, and the other based on representation, the Senate.
Then second issue was if slaves would be counted as people or property. The northern states wanted slaves to be property while the southern states wanted slaves to be counted.
Congress will ruin the country with taxes! People and states should have the power!
Congress just needs to be strong so we can all unite as one republic.
They finally decided on a compromise, the 3/5's compromise. It stated that slaves would count as 3/5s of a person toward representation, and 3 out 5 slaves counted towards the population.
But what's this? James Madison has been keeping notes on what people have been saying. George Washington strictly prohibited any kind of communications outside of the convention, to allow people talk freely.
The delegates decided to let the states formally approve of the Constitution. Some joined and some were iffy. This started the two sides, Federalists, whom wanted to create a strong national government that would untite the states, and Anti-Federalists, whom wanted the states and the people to have power.
To make another compromise, the delegates added a Bill of Rights to insure that everyone had specific and secure rights. And so, James Madison wrote the Constitution, which will hopefully save America from tryanny.
