Why do we need
A Bill of Rights
For the Federal government
When the states have their own
Sets of Constitutions
And the Federal Constitution
Already protects basic freedoms?
We want a strong national government,
But the states can have just a bit of power, too.
Since we've got a big American territory,
We need to have a stronger Fed.
We'll have three branches
With checks and balances:
The Executive with a President,
A bicameral Legislative, and
A national Supreme Court.
