Storyboard Text

  • Hello Pericles, I have a quick question. Why did you allow poor farmers to vote? Only the wealthy people like me should be allowed.
  • Is that Pericles? I need to talk to him.
  • Well I believe that we should be a Democracy, which means everyone has a chance to vote. Everyone should be equal.
  • Hi Senator. Why do you and the other Senators not care about other peoples Opinions? Also why did you make the 12 tables?
  • Hello, and to answer your 1st question it is because we can rule for life. The answer to the 2nd question is to make everyone treated equally.
  • Why are you executing my father, King Charles?
  • I am sorry but we must do it. He went above the Rule of Law.
  • Bye Son!
  • What do you think of the of the government? I think the power of the rulers should be unquestioned.
  • Well I disagree. I think the government should have to get consent from the people. If they don't, the people can overthrow the ruler.
  • I agree. We should call it the Mayflower Compact. We should make rules that we all agree on.
  • Even though we didn't plan on landing hear we are finally here. We should make laws so we can trust each other more.
  • Hello, aren't you part of the House of Burgesses, the first representative assembly in the Colonies? I am part of the lower house , or assembly, in Georgia.
  • Yes I am. We meet once a year to make new laws.
