The U.S. Constitution How did the framers of the Constitution balance the compet

timer Asked: Mar 31st, 2016

Question description

  1. How did the framers of the Constitution balance the competing claims of local self-government, sectional interests, and national authority? Refer to the document itself.
  2. The Constitution did not give freedom and citizens' rights to all. Who became full-fledged members of the American people, entitled to the blessings of liberty? Fully explain what criteria were used and who was excluded from membership.
  1. Explain the arguments of those who opposed the Federalists and their attempt to vote down the Constitution. How did they define liberty and what role did they see government having in protecting that liberty?
  1. If the constitution were fully revised today -- or even abolished -- how do you believe it would be revised and by whom? Would some parts of the country seek major changes while others would not? Why or why not? Finally -- who would seek to abolish it and what would they put in its place. Though this question might seem lighthearted and the answers obvious, question your first assumptions and dig deeper. Good luck.
