Storyboard Text

  • The debate is over ratifying the Constitution. The Federalists think the government is great as is and wants it ratified right away, while the Anti-federalists think the government is far to strong and there needs to be protections for state rights as well as peoples individual rights are included.
  • I know what side I am on!
  • Much like Ted was here to keep me in check and remind me that a balance needs to be struck and everyone has rights, the branches within the government should also have the ability to check each other to keep a good balance. They must also make sure everyone's rights are considered.
  • That makes sense!
  • Just think how you felt when I demanded your food, what side of the debate would you be on? What would happen if our government had that much power and your rights or your states rights were not taken into consideration? Would you ratify the Constitution as is or stand up for the protection of your rights to be included? 
  • Yes! We all have rights.
  • Thank you for explaining!
  • Stand up!
