We shall have Seperation of powers where powers and responsibilities are divided among the three branches
Then, of course, there was the issue of power.
We decided to have three branches of government, an wrote in the constitution what each branch has the power to do certain things or override another branch.
Article two of the constitution goes into the executive branch. Which interprets our laws, and it checks the other branches by, vetoing bills from the legislative branch, and appointing judges to the judicial branch.
With Checks and Balances, would allow each branch to check the other ensuring that political power is not concentrated in the hands of individuals or groups.
Article three of the constitution goes into the judicial branch. There job is to interpret the constitution. They can check the other branches by, declaring legislative laws unconstitutional and for the executive branch, the judges are appointed for life.
In Article one it establishes all about the legislative branch. Which is composed of two bodies, the Senate and the house of representatives. Their main task is to make laws. It also checks both branches with the executive branch overriding a veto, or impeachment. Then it checks the Judicial branch by confirming the presidential appointments
Girl: Wow, that is a lot. Jefferson: Yeah, but we are not finished. Once the new constitution was drafted, people were still not happy with it.
No, We Federalist believe that what is written in the constitution is enough. Check and balances along with separation of power will protect the peoples right enough.
Ok, we Anti Federalist believe that the constitution needs something to keep the people's rights safe. It Can not just be 'implied'.
For ratification of the constitution to happen, there need to be nine states. That hadn't happened, people saw that the only way to ratify the constitution was to add a bill of rights.
This is the bill of rights, guaranteeing rights like freedom of speech, religion, and more. It can be added to if needed.
