To be able to explain and identify two compromises included in the Constitution by the members of the original Constitutional Convention, you must first know what this all means. The first meeting was called to meet in Philadelphia due to the fact that it was “for the sole and express purpose of revising the Articles of Confederation.” (Ferrand, et al 1869- 1945) However it was then suggested that they government system should also be changed.
Do you know what corruption means? Corruption is a dishonest or illegal behavior especially by powerful people (such as government officials or police officers). Do you know about corruption in Mexico? Corruption in Mexico is obviously nothing new, but there have been many cases that are unbelievable, but true. How did it start? This paper will explain you the beginning of corruption and some cases that had happened recently.
1.Northwest Ordinance of 1787- The Northwest Ordinance of 1787 layer out the governmental rules for the Northwest Territory. It stated that three to five states would be formed out of the existing Northwest Territory. The Ordinance contained three stages that the territory would go through in order to form the states. In the first step of the Ordinance the region was completely controlled by the government. The second stage stated that once a region reached a population of 5,000 not including any slaves, it became a Territory. The citizens of the Territory were then allowed to have a representative in Congress and elect a legislature. In the third stage once the population reached 60,000, it could write its own state constitution and join the Union equally.
Several years after the United States came to be, the Constitutional Convention met to determine how the new nation should govern itself. The delegates saw that it was crucial to have a president and vice president, but the delegates did not want these offices to reflect how the colonies were treated under the British rule. The delegates believed that the president’s power should be limited, and that he should be chosen through the system known as the Electoral College. The Electoral College is a body of people who represent the states of the US, who formally cast votes for the electing of the president and vice president. Many citizens feel that the Electoral College goes against our nation’s principle of representative democracy, while others
The main reason why the Framers didn’t succeed in their final compromise is because it was too difficult to make all the delegates (who were basically competing) agree with each other, so numerous issues were ignored and most plans were severely compromised. An example of this is the debate between larger and smaller states over their representation in the newly proposed Senate. Two solutions were significantly favored: the New Jersey Plan and the Virginia Plan. The smaller states were in favor of the New Jersey Plan, which would enforce each state to send the same number of representatives to Congress. The larger states supported the Virginia Plan, which called for each state to have a different number of representatives based on the state’s population. Eventually, an agreement between the states was made known as the Great Compromise. The Great Compromise combined the New
The first guard against tyranny was Equal Representation from all of the states. This means that each state will have certain amounts of senator’s. The bigger the state, the more senators. In Document D, it says, “The number of representatives shall not exceed one for every thirty thousand but each state shall have at least one representative… The Senate of the United States shall be composed by the legislatures thereof for six years, and each
I sincerely regret that an appointment of long standing...will make it out of my power to be present at the City Hall on Thursday. I feel it a positive deprivation not to be able to join in the home demonstration of joy and gratitude. The revolution wrought...by the Fifteenth Amendment of the Constitution of The United States, is almost startling, even to me. I view it with something like amazement. It is truly vast and wonderful, and when we think through what labors, tears, treasures and precious blood it has come, we may well contemplate it with a solemn joy. Henceforth we live in a new world, breathe a new atmosphere, have a new earth beneath and a new sky above us....Equal before the Lord, equal [at] the ballot-box and in the jury-box,
The United States Senate, established under Article I of the U.S. Constitution, must have two Senators appointed from every state regardless of the population of the state. Much like the House of Representatives,
One of the oldest crops is cotton and then technological advances stimulated the cotton industry.
“Being president doesn’t change who you are. It reveals who you are,” (Obama Michelle). Definition of corrupt, dishonest or illegal behavior, specifically by powerful people, such as government officials or police officers (Merriam-Webster). Many leaders are corrupt, but that doesn’t mean that power caused their corruption. They were probably like that before. The power just exposed the part of their personality that they may have been trying to hide from the world.
The Jacksonian Era was the time period of Andrew Jackson’s presidency. This began in 1828 when Jackson was elected president. The era is sometimes described as a time when the United States experienced the “democratization of politics.” In a democracy every citizen has an equal say in the government's decisions and actions. Some people of this time period believed that Jackson is notable for democratizing the United States during the Jacksonian Era. Others, on the other hand, believe he was far from accomplishing that. Politics are a way that expresses how the Unites States was not democratized during this time period. Jacksons animosity towards the Indians exposed his undemocratic actions during his first years of his presidency. However,
The Populist Party otherwise called the People’s Party was founded before the Civil War, the party consists of farmers, laborers, and socialists, where most of the populist came from the South and the West. The party adopted a system to change the debt-stricken way how the farmers, support the laborers and the shortening of workdays for the industrial workers and a few types of reforms, for example the right to referendums, recall and female suffrage, which many farmers and workers believed that the Populist Party was a voice for their anger and a gross for inequality and injustice in the American society. In the meantime, Labor 's efforts to organize and collectively bargain with the trusts were systematically suppressed. All these things
Through years of gender inequality throughout the nation, one of the most important causes for women was when they received the right to vote, as it allowed them to have a voice within the country. While looking throughout the fight for Women’s Suffrage, many would say that it ultimately ended on August 26, 1920- when the 19th Amendment was officially ratified. Although this seems accurate, many others would say that the fight ended when the Supreme Court 's ruling ultimately established the Nineteenth Amendment. This is best shown by the ratification of the 19th amendment, Leser v. Garnett, and the overall process to reach the final ruling during the case.
on September 17,1787 the delegates assembled to sign the constitution they had created. They agreeing of the compromise happened by this. First the Great Compromise appointed a committee suggested what would later be called the great compromise. the compromise is a settlement of a dispute by each party giving up some demands. Sherman 's Compromise proposed different representation in tow house legislature. in the upper house the senate each state would have 2 members. the states would be equal in representation. George Mason of Virginia defended this idea. Most of the delegates believed that the constitution carefully defined government powers and provided enough protection of individual
After the countless debates, the Great Compromise was what the convention would come into agreement with representation by population in the House of Representatives “The number of Representatives shall not exceed one for every thirty thousand, but each state shall have at least one Representative.”(add footnote) The smaller states were pleased with equal representation in the Senate “The Senate of the United States shall be composed of two Senates from each state and each Senator shall have one vote.”(add
