  • Yes! Ratify the Constitution!

    As we are all aware, the Constitution has already been ratified. Some things need to be changed in our government, but we will surely get there some day. We have the Bill of Rights to protect our freedom and to insure protection. I am very proud to be an American. I surely would have voted yes to ratify our lovely Constitution.

  • No constitution, No Rules!

    If we have no constitution, we wouldn't have any rules to follow. There wouldn't be anything to stop disagreement, fights, or even organization of the world. It would be total chaos. The world would be in complete war. No one would agree with anyone. Innocent people would die. Think about that. Say yes. Please. For the country.

  • YES it was ratified

    I think the constitution was ratified because If the Constitution was not ratified, the US would have not survived, because if there were no rules, everything would be a disaster. Imagine thirteen independent countries without rules. They would be in jeopardy. Some of them might have been conquered by other countries. There would be lots of wars, and even today, we would not be alive or be hiding in a bomb shelter. They might have waged war on each other. That seems likely as they would have begun to fight over resources.

  • The Constitution should be ratified.

    The Constitution has been ratified because the states agreed with it. It is now the highest law in the land, and the basis for our legal system. Any new states which want to join the union will need to ratify the constitution. Any legitimate country needs a working constitution for its laws.

  • Articles are Weak

    The Articles that supported our country before were horribly weak. With the new government that the Constitution formed, we gained three branches and became inexplicably different from England. We had a bicameral branch of Congress, divided into Senate and the House of Reps. The Legislative branch was checking the Constitution and what applied to it. Finally, the President was unlike the king. A series of checks and balances kept the country in much better order than the Articles ever could.

  • Good idea but a bad plan

    Without a central government, our country would have gone down. Giving other countries power over us. With an effective constitution we will manage trade and law issues better. A bill of rights can always be added, so just ratify the constitution. If we had a repeat of the Articles of Confederation things could've gone down quick. Under control by other countries, and possibly internal wars.

  • Ratify the constitution for a great resolution!

    We need firm guidelines for this new country so we don’t fall apart, and the constitution possesses these guidelines we need.
    The constitution contains the rights of the people or the bill of rights unlike the articles of confederation. Benjamin Franklin, a very knowledgeable man supports the constitution, and he has a good head on his shoulders, so we should!

  • Ratify the constitution

    Don’t deny, ratify!
    Well, in my opinion I think the constitution should be ratified. I think that if you ratify the constitution we will have a stronger country or government! The constitution will also instate a national government under a system of checks and balances, which will prevent the branches of the national government from having too much power. The formation of a single federal government would grant many of the states its individual freedom, but also would help grant them the union that would make this country strong. The constitution should be ratified for the reasons above, and to solidify our country as one.
    Whether it is a small family owned business or a country, a written set of rules are the best means of insuring that the organization will be able to function. Without a constitution any organization can become chaotic and cease to function for the benefit of the participants in the organization. Organizations work best when there is clear set of expectations that has been proposed and ratified by its participants

  • It is not a ready system of government

    Although it is an improvement on the Articles of Confederation, it is not ready to be implemented as a system of government. The main fault with the Constitution is it has no bill of rights. A bill of rights is necessary for the people so both they and the government know the rights because they are backed by paper rather than arbitrary ideals. Federalists say they will add an amendment with a bill, but we should not trust the government lest we result like England. Anyway, if it were so easy to pass an amendment listing the rights, it would be just as swift including it into a document to be ratified. It is unreasonable to hand the government more power and not defend the citizen's rights. If a bill of rights is added prior to ratification, the government plan laid out by the Constitution would be ready to function.

  • Opposed to ratifying the constitution

    This proposed constitution grants far too much power to the hands of an executive branch and reeks of monarchy. Hamilton and the Federalists seek to return us to the absolute rule of a powerful state such as the one from which we have just won our independence. And speaking of independence, how can we claim to be a nation of free men when this proposed document contains no condemnation of the inhuman practice of slavery? There is an array of reasons that the constitution should not be ratified .The ratifying of the constitution would give to much power to the government. Our people also need a bill of rights which is a set rights and liberties considered essential to people or a group of people. With the ratification of the constitution the states would no longer have the power to print money. I think with the help of the people that the constitution will not be ratified.

  • NO

    Good sirs I say it must not be! This proposed constitution grants far too much power to the hands of an executive branch and reeks of monarchy. Hamilton and the Federalists seek to return us to the absolute rule of a powerful state such as the one from which we have just won our independence. And speaking of independence, how can we claim to be a nation of free men when this proposed document contains no condemnation of the inhuman practice of slavery?

    (PS: what year is it? the constitution was ratified 200 years ago. Did you mean to say "amended?")

  • No, there is no need to ratify the Constitution.

    At the current time there is no real need to ratify the constitution. Efforts to ratify the Constitution in any way should be carefully considered. However, there is no real evidence to suggest that by ratifying the Constitution, American will be governed any better. With these things understood there is no reason to ratify the constitution.
