A constitution is the legal structure of our political system establishing governmental bodies determining how their members are selected and prescribing the rules by which they make their decisions The nations founders fifty-five men met in Philadelphia in the summer of 1787 to write a new constitution and to form a new government George Washington was elected chairman of the convention The founders were all very well educated Over half the delegates had collage degrees which was rare in the North American continent at that time They also had experience in governing More than forty of the delegates held high offices in state governments including three who were governors The founders believed in the idea that the purpose of government was the protection of individual life liberty and property In the opening argument Congress its existence and history are all questioned It is dangerous to increase the powers of Congress This argument states that even though Congress was constructed for the good of the people the good of the people may not always rest at the peak Corruption is a very real realistic circumstance and this statement expresses its anxiety towards a possible monopoly of power If this were to occur all efforts for freedom and liberty would be destroyed After all power corrupts but absolute power corrupts absolutely The yell of the commoners was also heard during the construction of the Constitution They expect to be the managers of this constitution and get all the power and all the money into their own hands This was the basic argument of the common people They feared that they would be lost in this scavenger hunt for freedom Rightfully so they looked out for themselves before they took into consideration the better of the nation They feared being at the bottom of the chain and having rich lawyers and politicians forcing deeper and deeper into a hole with their import and land taxes
