It's the Constitution ya'll <Christmas (baby please come home)>

Legislative- They're making the laws!

Judicial- They interpret them too!

Executive- They're enforcing the laws!

It's the Constitution y'all!


Branches too powerful

But that isn't our government at all

I remember when we could see

The checks and balances that we need!


The Federalists in town!

All signing that paper!

Full of unity!

It's the Constitution y'all!


Branches to powerful

But that isn't our government at all

I remember when we could see

The checks and balances that we need!


So there is a way

You can see it right here

But we have to be in unity!

****Notice**** -- *Caution* All things will apply

- This Constitution has been created to make a more effective government and to solve the problems that occurred under the Articles of Confederation

- The Constitution includes that it may be changed if it is necessary (in Article V, when 2/3 of 2/3 of Congress and 3/4 of the states agree there is a need for change)

- There are several compromises and/or laws in the Constitution that have helped resolved these problems created under the Articles of Confederation : Representation in legislative branch, Commerce slave trade, Runaway slaves, Slaves being counted in population, Election of a president, and many more!!!

- Some of those essential compromises and/or laws that solved those problems were: The Great compromise, The 3/5 compromise, The Fugitive Slave law, and several others.

- The system of checks and balances established under the Constitution helps keep one branch of government from getting to powerful (for example: executive branch can veto bills from legislative branch, but legislative branch can override the veto), having strict things they could do, helping the state's and individual rights

- This Constitution will help preserve the Union, that is right now on the verge of breaking apart because of the weak national government!!!
