Storyboard Text

  • I'm going to beat you up if you don't describe the Declaration of Independence!
  • Uh OK, It was a statement created by the leaders of the Colonies during the Second Continental Congress to declare independence from their parent country. Why are you so mad?
  • I’m mad because the Articles of Confederation weren’t allowed to stay and Congress replaced it with the Constitution, which was ratified today, June 21, 1788.
  • Okay, but it helped create a stable government for the country, and pleased all the states.
  • Ok.
  • But the Virginia Compromise made bigger states more powerful which made smaller states angry.
  • Yeah, but the Great Compromise solved that by creating two houses and making the Congressional voting process as equal as possible.
  • Wanna go get coffee and talk about it?
  • Funny that you say that when slaves aren’t counted as people, only ⅗ of a person when counting population.
  • Yeah, that's disappointing. But what about Separation of Powers and Checks and Balances? It limits the power of the government by separating it into three parts. And those 3 parts are able to check each other to prevent one branch from getting too powerful.
  • The Three Branches. There’s the Executive branch that carries out the laws and the Legislative branch that creates the laws. I forgot what the third branch was and what it did.
  • The Judiciary, who interprets the laws. I like that they are all together and work with each other. I’m a federalist by the way.
  • Nope! I’m happy for making a new friend, See you later!
  • Oh then I am an Anti-federalist because I like the Articles and the Bill of Rights because it lists all basic rights that aren’t stated in the constitution. I mean I don’t like the Articles in its current state, and I hope that they can fix it. 
  • What's that?
  • A Federalist is someone who supports the signing of the Constitution and disagrees with the Bill of Rights being passed. We think that the articles need to be replaced in order to succeed.
  • Yeah, Me too thanks for the coffee, I hope that our differences don’t oppose our newly formed friendship!
