  • 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

  • Yes, No Organization Can Function Without Rules

    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.

  • Yes the Constitution should be ratified

    The Constitution is one of the cornerstones of this country as it pertains to our rights as Americans. It needs to be protected at all costs. If that means ratifying it, then so be it. It is too important a document not to be protected. So yes I think the Constitution should be ratified.

  • Say yes to ratification

    With out the constitution there would be nothing thing to stop more acts like Shays Rebellion. The constitution also got Congress out of its massive debt. Equal/human rights, the right to petition the gov and a strong national gov. Yes, many people fear a strong national gov afraid it will turn into a monarchy you have to give the constitution the benefit of the doubt. So far it hasn't failed us yet

  • Yes is should

    No rules. No country. Simple as that. Without the constitution there would be people doing what ever they want everywhere. The constitution makes America as strong as it is now. It's like we're unbreakable. We will always be here as long as the constitution is still around. God bless America.

  • 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.

  • NO! Government Corruption!

    The government is corrupt and ratifying the Constitution would just give them more and more power. They would just as easily arrest a man as they would a group of them with the Constitution. Why do we need to be controlled? There is no reason for the Constitution, end of story.

  • You have to understand, we are not one country. We are a union.

    The problem with people arguing for the "yes" is that they don't understand that facts of the matter. The constitution was written by Hamilton, Madison and jay. These men where social elite from the north who did not get their money from their revolutionary war bonds. And where not happy with the current government form. So they wrote the constitution to limit the power of ordinary folk, and put in " the government cannot default on any debts". Jefferson, Henry, and smith where mortified by this constitution and fought it on every front. In the end the two sides came to a grudging agreement, the constitution + the bill of rights would be OK. The bill was written by Henry as a demand to sort of balance this new governments power. As Madison wrote this into the constitution he wrote in his diary, "it makes me sick to the core to put such limitations on my new government". The constitution is designed to protect the power of minorities from the majority (minorities being rich elite).

  • 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.
