I'll be glad to check your answers.
2. Our U.S. Constitution calls for three branches of government (Executive, Legislative & Executive) that run our federal system.
separation of Powers in the Constitution calls for each of these three branches to not hold too much power over another as they all work hand in hand together.
Is this enough information? Can you please help me, with #1
2. So far, so good. But you haven't discussed the functions and responsibilities of each branch.
Okay, let me re-write it:
The executive branch is the president, and he can veto laws and bills passed by congress.
The judicial branch is the supreme court.
The legislative branch is congress, and can create laws.
By separating the power in to three different groups, none of them can ever gain too much power.
1.Federalists supported the ratification of the Constitution.Antifederalists opposed the ratification of the Constitution.
Is this a good start?
You still need more information.
Princess -- you need a lot more information for number 1.
1. Federalists supported the ratification of the Constitution. Antifederalists opposed the ratification of the Constitution.
The federalists wanted more control given to the government. They wanted maximum government. They and the Anti-Federalists who wanted limited government were actually brought together in the ratification process by the compromises that created the Bill of Rights.
I can do #2 myself. I got a better understanding of it now! Thank you so much!
But is #1 okay, now?
What is missing from #1?
Two details (at least) . . .
I;m disappointed in you, Princess. You obviously did not bother to read the website I posted for you.
Here, Ms.Sue I have studied and re-wrote it. :)
The Federalists supported the ratification of the Constitution, while the Anti-federalists opposed the ratification of the Constitution.
The Federalists wanted the federal government to have authority over the states in our dual system but anti-fed wanted states to have the final say on their own business and interactions with each other.
As for their position with the New constitition, the Anti-federalists belived that it would take away Liberties the American had to fight with the Great Britain for. They felt the New constitution wouldn't acknowledge the will of the states and most importantly, the people.
While on their other hand, the federalist felt that the New constitution, would not only provide stability, but it would have a positive impact on the change in power to the central government,
Good job! :-)
Thank you! and thanks for not giving me the answer, I actually learned a lot!:-)
You're very welcome. :-)
