Federalist-Anti-Federalists and the Tools of Ratification
Amendments-Ratification- Federalists and Anti-Federalists -Bill of Rights
The Constitution emerged from the debate about the weaknesses in the Articles of Confederation as a blueprint for limited government
The Constitution is a bundle of compromises among competing economic interests, geographic regions of the country, and ideological positions on slavery to name just a few among many.
The final ratification of the Constitution itself came about using the the tools created in the Constitution itself, specifically the amending process. The Framers set up a separate function to Ratify the Constitution (Article VII ) via Ratification Conventions in the states. The Amending Process (Article V)
The Constitution emerged from the debate about the weaknesses in the Articles of Confederation as a blueprint for limited government.
Explain the ongoing impact of political negotiation and compromise at the Constitutional Convention on the development of the constitutional system
Compromises deemed necessary for adoption and ratification of the Constitution are represented by the:
§ Great (Connecticut) Compromise
§ Electoral College
§ Three-Fifths Compromise
§ Compromise on the importation of slaves
Debates about self-government during the drafting of the Constitution necessitated
the drafting of an amendment process in Article V that entailed either a two-thirds vote in both houses or a proposal from two-thirds of the state legislatures, with final ratification determined by three-fourths of the states.
The compromises necessary to secure ratification of the Constitution left some matters unresolved that continue to generate discussion and debate today.
The debate over the role of the central government, the powers of state governments, and the rights of individuals remains at the heart of present-day constitutional issues about democracy and governmental power, as represented by:
§ Debates about government surveillance resulting from the federal government’s response to the 9/11 attacks
§ The debate about the role of the federal government in public school education. The power to Amend the Constitution enables the public to safeguard (or remove) rights as as need hence “future proofing” the nation against tyranny. The Amending process will play additional important roles in mending the differences of the country in the post-Civil War era (13th, 14th, and 15th) as well as adopting structural law remedies that were not foreseen by the Framers..
DISCUSSION QUESTION PLEASE WATCH THE VIDEOS PLEASE!!!!
1)Briefly summarize the position taken by the Federalists OR the Anti-Federalists prior to the ratification of the Constitution.
2)How does the Adoption of the Bill of Rights via the Amending Process reflect the “spirit of compromise” of the Framers as well as their “genius of creativity” to create a document that could “live and breath” into the future?
