THE CONSTITUTION AS A BUNDLE OF COMPROMISES
REPRESENTATION: REPRESENTATION BASED ON POPULATION WOULD LESSEN THE POWER AND INFLUENCE OF STATES WITH SMALL POPULATIONS. A MAJOR COMPROMISE EARLY IN THE CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION CREATED A BICAMERAL LEGISLATURE.
A HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, WHERE REPRESENTATION WAS BASED ON POPULATION.
A SENATE WHERE EACH STATE WAS TO HAVE EQUAL REPRESENTATION: 2 SENATORS PER STATE.
A HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES DIRECTLY ELECTED BY THE PEOPLE AND ANSWERABLE TO THE PEOPLE BECAUSE THEY MUST SEEK RE-ELECTION EVERY TWO YEARS.
A SENATE MADE UP OF SENATORS SELECTED BY STATE LEGISLATURES AND ELECTED FOR SIX YEAR TERMS. THUS INDIRECTLY ELECTED BY THE PEOPLE AND NOT NECESSARILY ANSWERABLE TO THE PEOPLE.
SLAVERY: THE SOUTHERN STATES THAT HAD MORE BLACK SLAVES THAN WHITES PROPOSED THAT SLAVES BE COUNTED AS PART OF THE POPULATION FOR PURPOSES OF REPRESENTATION. THIS WOULD INCREASE THE NUMBER OF SOUTHERNERS IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. AT THE SAME TIME SOUTHERNERS DID NOT WANT SLAVES TO BE COUNTED AS PART OF THE POPULATION FOR DIRECT TAXATION PURPOSES BECAUSE THIS WOULD INCREASE THE SOUTHERN STATES TAX BURDEN. TO APPEASE THE SOUTH THE ISSUE WAS SETTLED WITH THE THREE-FIFTHS COMPROMISE. FIVE SLAVES WOULD BE COUNTED AS THREE FREE PERSONS FOR THE PURPOSE OF REPRESENTATION AND DIRECT TAXATION.
ANOTHER COMPROMISE ON SLAVERY WOULD ALLOW THE IMPORTATION OF SLAVES TILL 1808. A 20 YEAR WINDOW OF OPPORTUNITY TO IMPORT SLAVES. AFTER 1808 THE IMPORTATION OF SLAVES WOULD BE ILLEGAL. THIS APPEASED SOTHERN STATES WHILE PLACATING NORTHERN STATES THAT WANTED TO ABOLISH THE IMPORTATION OF SLAVES.
TARIFFS: THE SOUTHERN STATES OPPOSED GIVING THE NATIONAL GOVERNMENT THE POWER TO LEVY TARIFFS. BECAUSE THEY WERE CHIEFLY AGRICULTURAL THEY WERE AFRAID CONGRESS WOULD PASS A TARIFF ON THEIR EXPORTS. THE NORTHERN STATES WANTED THE NATIONAL GOVERNMENT TO HAVE THE POWER TO ESTABLISH REGULATIONS ON COMMERCE WITH FOREIGN NATIONS SINCE THEY WERE
HIGHLY COMMERCIAL. THIS ISSUE WAS SETTLED WHEN CONGRESS WAS GRANTED THE POWER TO CONTROL FOREIGN COMMERCE AND TO LEVY TARIFFS ON IMPORTS BUT NOT ON EXPORTS.
THE PRESIDENCY: THERE WAS DISAGREEMENT OVER THE LENGTH OF THE TERM OF OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT AND THE METHOD OF CHOOSING HIM. SUGGESTIONS FOR THE TERM OF OFFICE RANGED FROM 3 YEARS TO LIFE. SOME WANTED THE PRESIDENT ELECTED DIRECTLY BY THE PEOPLE. SOME DELEGATES FEARED TOO MUCH DEMOCRACY AND WANTED THE PRESIDENT ELECTED BY CONGRESS. THE ISSUE WAS FINALLY SETTLED BY AUTHORIZING A FOUR YEAR TERM OF OFFICE AND THE CHANCE FOR RE-ELECTION. THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE SYSTEM WAS ALSO CREATED BUT IF THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE FAILS TO PICK A PRESIDENT IT WOULD BE UP TO THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES TO PICK A PRESIDENT. THIS WOULD ALLOW THE PEOPLE TO INDIRECTLY ELECT THE PRESIDENT.
