Transcript of Civics Foundations 2.06 Speech

Balancing Power in the Constitution
Anti-Federalism refers to a movement that opposed the creation of a stronger U.S. federal government and which later opposed the ratification of the Constitution of 1788. The previous constitution, called the Articles of Confederation, gave state governments more authority. Led by Patrick Henry of Virginia, Anti-Federalists worried, among other things, that the position of president, then a novelty, might evolve into a monarchy. A book titled "The Anti-Federalist Papers" is a detailed explanation of American Anti-Federalist thought.
Checks And Balances
Checks and balances counterbalance influences by which an organization or system is regulated, typically those ensuring that political power is not concentrated in the hands of individuals or groups.The checks and balances of power between the legislative, executive, and judicial branches as laid out in Articles I, II, and III of the Constitution safeguard our freedoms by preventing any single branch from becoming too powerful and trying to over take the others.
So what we talked about today was balancing the constitution.And we had different paragraphs about different subjects.And I hope it will come to a balance one day.
The Federalists
The Federalists were more organized in their efforts. By June of 1788, the Constitution was close to ratification. Nine states had ratified it, and only one more (New Hampshire) was needed. To achieve this, the Federalists agreed that once Congress met, it would draft a bill of rights. Finally, New York and Virginia approved, and the Constitution was a reality. Interestingly, the Bill of Rights was not originally a part of the Constitution, and yet it has proved to be highly important to protecting the rights of the people.

This essay I am writing is about how the constitution needs to be equal and balancing the power of the constitution .I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.As said by Martin Luther King, Jr. Always be fare and treat people the way you want to be treated.And that is how people should do with the constitution.
