One example is the freedom of speech and religion. That means Americans can express their religions and opinions freely.
Next, the Bill of Rights is the first 10 amendments, of the Constitution. We practice these laws everyday.
And I can practice whatever religion I want!
Because of Freedom of Speech, I can share my Anti-Federalist views.
As the country grew, two political parties were made: Federalists & Anti-Federalists.
The Federalists won, but it was not a complete loss for the Anti-Federalists because they got the Bill of Rights, which they wanted.
Anti-Federalist means that I do not support the signing of the Constitution because I fear that the federal government will have too much power.
Federalist means that I support the laws and ideas of the Constitution and the new power balance.
In 1789, the Constitution was ratified. In other words, it was officially signed by the states and put into action.
Ratification needed the approval of at least nine of the thirteen states.
Thanks to the Constitution, we now live with freedoms, rights, and laws that protect us. For hundreds of years, the Constitution has been the backbone of our government and democracy. Our country's government would not be the same without it!
