These two sides agreed to make a government that gave power to the states yet gave more to the national government. We shall learn about more compromises at once!
I believe that there should be one chief executive, not a group.
What if that one executive makes a bad decision? If there is more than one there are more views and less likely to make a poor choice.
While writing the Constitution they decided for one single president but with limited power. This president is elected by the electoral college. There were many more compromises that had to be made such as creating an upper and lower house of representatives based on population for representation, having slaves count as 3/5 of a vote, and having a senate chosen by the state. We move on our journey to learn about ratifying the Constitution and strange people called the Federalists and Anti-Federalists and their conflicts!
Two groups formed opinions about the Constitution, the Federalists and Anti-Federalists.
I am a federalist!
I am an Anti-Federalist!
The articles of Confederation don't work, the new government can solve problems.
The executive does not have too much power, they are checked by Congress and the Supreme court
We need to make sure no group gets too much power.
