Exactly 200 years ago, the authors of the U.S. Constitution gathered at Independence Hall reached an extremely important agreement. Their so-called “Great Compromise” (or Connecticut compromise in honor of its architects, S.G.S. MPs Roger Sherman and Oliver Ellsworth of Connecticut) offered a dual system of congressional representation. In the House of Representatives, each state would be allocated a number of seats relative to its population. In the Senate, all states would have the same number of seats. Today, we believe that this regulation is self-evident; in the summer of 1787 welk-hot, it was a new idea. On July 4, delegates developed a compromise plan that sidelined Franklin`s proposal. On 16 July, the Convention adopted the Great Compromise with a heartbreaking one-voice lead.
As the celebrants of 1987 duly said, there probably would not have been a Constitution without that vote. • 1. Anti-federalists – people who did not support the Constitution 1787 . 2 Compromise – both sides give a little to reach an agreement. However, the issue of representation threatened to destroy the seven-week-old Convention. Delegates from the major states felt that because they contributed proportionately more to the country`s financial and defensive resources, their states should have proportional representation in both the Senate and the House of Representatives. Delegates from small states called, with comparable intensity, for all states to be represented in the same way in both houses. When Sherman proposed the compromise, Benjamin Franklin agreed that each state should have the same vote in the Senate on all matters except those related to money. 1An agreement or settlement of a dispute obtained by each party making concessions. 12 Main Concepts Most delegates wanted a strong national government of popular sovereignty idea, that political authority belongs to the people balances the power of the national government with the power of the states- the division of power between a central government and the federal government has the power to impose laws States must obey the authority of the federal gov`t federal gov` , does not have the power to use the military to enforce laws the troops under the command of the president have control of non-federal domains gov`t 8 New Jersey Plan Of small statesDea to maintain the structure of Congress the same unicameral legislation a chamber that would give an equal vote to each state.
This would benefit the smaller states, since the large population did not have an impact on the voting agreement, the agreement could not agree after months of debate. 1787, the Framers had made several important decisions regarding the structure of the Senate. They rejected a proposal to elect senators to the House of Representatives from the lists submitted by national parliaments and agreed that these legislators should elect their own senators. An example of compromise is a teenager who wants to go home at midnight, while his parents want them to come home at 10 p.m., and finally accept them at 11 p.m. Until July 16, the Convention had already set the minimum age for senators at 30 and the term at six, compared to 25 years for members of the House of Representatives for a two-year term. James Madison explained that these distinctions, based on “the nature of the confidence of senators, which requires a greater degree of information and character stability,” would allow the Senate to continue “with more freshness, with more system and with more wisdom than the popular branch [ly] chosen.” 3 with object Discrediting or endangering by indiscreet, stupid or reckless behavior.
