  • 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.

  • Ratifying the constitution

    The constitution has been used for a long time, but some people and states did not approve the of the very Important document that shapes and brings together the united states of America. The purpose of declaring independence from britain was to not have a government that has all of the power given to one person. For example, the king of england has has almost all control of the country. The united states wanted to give most of the power to three branches of government and not the states. Some people agreed to that but, others wanted change the constitution.
    The first reason that some people wanted to ratify the constitution is that it gives the federal government more power which in turn helps trade, economics, and protecting its citizens. The second reason that some people supports the ratification of the constitution is that there are a lot of problems with the articles of confederation for example the federal government had no control over the states which might lead to a civil war and some states dividing. The last reason that ratifying the constitution was good is that it was almost impossible for one group of government to have too much power.

  • The Constitution was ratified over 100 years ago!

    The people who said no would not be here today if the Constitution was not ratified! Everyone who said yes are smart! Everyone who said no need to take 8th grade History again! I think most people who said no do not get what this is saying. We are not going to ratify the Constitution again,because we already have the Constitution ratified.

  • An illegal coup!

    This Constitution is nothing more than attempt to subvert and illegally replace our government. The Articles of Confederation make provisions for amendment, why do these "Framers" not work within the agreed upon rules that all the States have agreed to? Because their plan is to wrest power from the people and place it in the hands of wealthy elites who will more easily wield power over the masses and enrich themselves. Replacing a government illegally is a Coup, whether done so by Rifle, or Article.

  • For what reason?

    The constitution is basically the people taking their individual rights putting it into a pile and giving them to the government so they can control us. Without a bill of rights it should not be ratified, we just won our independence from and absolute power, just to go right back into the same situation?

  • Just because. .

  • NO. No Ratification.

    It is a bad idea. The government already has a lot of power they don't need any more. How many secrets do you think they keep from us and you know how power corrupts. We do not need to ratify this and we would do well not to so no.

  • The government works fine even now

    Sure the constitution was formed over 200 years ago but you have to stop and ask does our country really work less now than it did back then? Sure it's more polished and upheld with more respect now than it was back then but the constitution still works in the style of government that is used today. Other countries think it's so good they are trying to adapt democracy into their system. ( Mexico for example ) In other words our government works fine with the constitution that we have and therefore doesn't need any changes.
