During the creation of Constitution, each state had to approve it. During this time there were people who supported it, Federalist and who did not, Anti-Federalists. I am siding with Anti-Federalist since they were right in thinking they did not want to give all their power away to the national government. If you lived in a state separate from where government state is established, how would you get your problems in your state solved if you had a government who was telling you what to do but not really knowing what problems you had in your state. If I lived back in that time, and having just finished the war with Britain where we finally got our independence, I would remind people all the issues we had.
There were plenty of arguments over what to add or take out so some delegates came up with the idea to abandon the Articles of Confederation and establish a new constitution. I was completely for this new constitution because it would secure our government and people. Many others were against this new idea because it was not fair to the people and could cause a monarchy. Although this is true, the people have more of a say in this new government because they vote to choose our representatives and they can vote to change the representatives or
He wanted them to be able to fix their problems themselves and let the government do more important jobs and have to worry about them less. He wanted them to become strong, independent people, but when America’s situation was as bad as it was nothing the people did could get them out of that situation. The government needed to step in and help them get out of the hole because they were too far in to pull themselves out. This concept had good intentions, but failed miserably. FDR’s Liberal ideas set new ground rules for the coming presidents to follow and his spirit and work ethic were going to be the top bar the next Presidents would have to compete with, even still
The New World Times How will the constitution affect the presidential elections? In terms of this, the constitution will affect the elections because the federalists and the anti-federalists will oppose to vote for the right representative but because that the representative comes from that class…… the classes will only vote for their representative. This attempt will trouble the nation with election issues and pretty soon… the constitution will be abandoned set America for a monarchy. Editor’s opinion In my opinion the U.S constitution provided more detailed political laws that was able to help out the economy itself to prevent form having a dictatorship. However the constitution first needed to be discussed before being passed out
This leads to great conflict. The main problem, Madison describes, is the distribution of property and therefore wealth. The more land and wealth you have, the more your opinions will be heard and upheld. Madison continues to tell that factions will be “unable to execute and mask its violence under the forms of the Constitution.” (Madison, 57) In other words, if the new Constitution is approved, factions will disappear and everyone will have an equal opinion. In this piece Madison tries
It was these democratic principles that have gotten us to the place we are today. We must not look to the judicial branch to affect the regulation of business; instead we must take on this issue in the tried and proven democratic process. The role of the Supreme Court is to determine the constitutionality of laws and regulations, not create them, and that is exactly what the reinterpretation of the commerce clause has done. The reinterpretation has extended the power of the federal government, and the judicial system too far, allowing them to overstep their boundaries. The continued power grab will destroy the capitalist system shackling the limbs of the free market.
In the end he says that in order to have a balanced government the majority must agree on justice. The historical significance of this article is, during this time if no separation of powers or checks and balances were enforced the government would have collapsed. If the powers were not limited; with time a certain person would end democracy and bring forth once again a tyranny government. It is also important that the government was equal yet had power to control its people because if not there would be no type of
Henry David Thoreau believed the government to be an unjust institution; he believed people should first do what they think is right, and not abide by the laws of the government. This meant at all cost Henry would not follow the laws formatted into the constitution,
Constitution Essay Due to the supremacy clause the constitution is the law of the land. That makes this simple little document a giant target for most politicians trying to change laws and policies as they see fit. However, the founding fathers were a clever bunch and new this document would need to stand strong if it were to be the basis for governing our whole nation. Therefore they made the process of amending it a rather difficult feat. The first step in the amendment process is to propose said amendment to congress.
Some cause for concerns can be found in the first writing of the Constitution (the one that will soon be thoroughly discussed) and some lay in more recent Amendments. However, we must not forget that these voices can only be discussed out loud for all opinions to be made on it because of the foresight of those in our past that demanded such rights before approving the Constitution as the foundation of our new government. The Constitution that was written before the ratification debate was adequate in its democracy, but fell short of its goal of creating a government that incorporates all of the citizens views equally and effectively. The Constitution divides the power between the three government
