Federalist Ad

  1. 1. I Know You Want the Constitution
  2. 2. What is it you ask? The Constitution is a new found independence and a fresh start. It tells about the House of Representatives, the Senate, the three branches, etc. It also states what the governments powers are. Anti-federalists think that the Constitution is going to take away the rights of the people, but it is made for the people.
  3. 3. Branches Legislative Branch − Makes laws for the nation Judicial Branch − Explains and interprets laws Executive Branch − Enforces laws
  4. 4. Checks and Balances The checks and balances system make sure that no branch holds more power than another. That way there is no absolute power, like in other countries.
  5. 5. Changes CAN be made! Before you start thinking this is a permanent constitution, remember this, nothing is set in stone. The document CAN have changes made, when necessary. It may even include a Bill of Rights for your personal protection.
  6. 6. Why's it better than the Articles of Confederation? Articles of Confederation  Unicameral – Congress  2 to 7 members per state in Congress  1 vote per state  1 year term for legislative office  New states admitted by agreement of 9 states  Taxes appointed by Congress, collected by states The Constitution  Bicameral – Congress, divided into House of Representatives and Senate  2 senators per Congress, representatives appointed by population  1 vote per senate or representative  2 years representative, 6 senators  New states admitted by agreement of Congress  Taxes laid and collected by Congress
  7. 7. Why should it be ratified? The Constitution should be ratified because it is an improvement from the Articles of Confederation. This country needs stability, balance and unity, and this constitution gives us that. We will have a country in harmony once this is approved and can begin to build our independent futures.
  8. 8. I know you want it now . . . After hearing all this information on why the Constitution is a significant document, there is no way you can walk away! It's THE document of it's time.
