This video provides an overview of the Constitution and the history behind it. The first form of government was the Articles of Confederation. The Articles of Confederation did not have a president or a judiciary branch, instead they just had congress which had very limited powers. They could coin money, wage war, and make treaties, but they did not have the power to tax. This form of government was very weak and struck fear into some individuals because of the fear of an overpowering government. In response delegates met in philadelphia to revise the Articles of Confederation, but instead they made a new charter of government, and thus the Constitution was born. The Constitution created the separation of powers which created the executive, legislative, and judicial branches. When forming the Constitution they didn't want tyranny from the government or tyranny from the people, so in the end they didn't want too much government but they also didn't want too much democracy. With the Constitution we gained two houses with representation according to each state's population, and a senate with two members from each state. To prevent tyranny the Constitution has two main principles, the separation of powers and federalism. This video relates to our topic in class and is helpful because it shows how the Constitution became the Constitution. It shows the negatives that came from the Articles of Confederation but also the positives and the same with the Constitution. This video is a very reliable source becuase it is not biast, because it shows the negatives and the positives and doesn't really have a federalism vs anti-federalism approach. (It's not an argument it's just facts).
