(As a separate paragraph) Follow-Up Posts:Compare your selections and analysis with the following response:
“The first problem the United States Federal government faced was that Congress became powerless. It could find no support from the states anxious to maintain their hold on the power. The Congress lost its hold on the issues of national interest and could not conduct foreign policy, regulate trade and collect money. The two significant debates were the election and the powers of the President, the problem of slavery and the representation in Congress. The ratification of the Federal Constitution is broadly explained in Article V of the document. A proposed amendment can’t become a law until Congress passes it by a two-thirds majority in both the Houses. Once Congress passes the amendment, then it is sent to the state legislatures for ratification. The United States Constitution became the backbone of the US government when New Hampshire rectified it in June 1788. The Article of Confederation remained the sole authority behind the governance until the ratification of the Constitution (Our Documents – Articles of Confederation (1777), 2017). The founding fathers had in mind a federal structure that would give states more control over the union. It became soon apparent that successful governance required a solid and stable national government. Alexander Hamilton was one of the first leaders to raise this issue. The delegates debated the proposal of creating a new form of government. Delaware and Pennsylvania became the first two states to rectify the new Constitution. The first elections took place from December 1788 to January 1789, and George Washington became the United States’ first president. The Federalists led by Alexander Hamilton lobbied for strong executive and government while James Munroe and Patrick Henry wanted solid states and weak central government. “
