The Constitution of the United States of America and the Iriqois Constitution have a few similarites and differences between the pair. Some of those would be that the Iriqois' constitution came before the U.S., a vito on power, a government with three branches, and the ability to impeach were all incorporated. In the Iriqois nation the way a decision is reached is much the same as how one is reached in the United States. It must pass through Lords known as the Mohawk and Seneca Lords, much the same way the house of representatives and senate works. The decision must be thoroughly agreed on. After it is a unanymous decision the Mohawk Lords report the decision of the two Lords' to the Fire Keepers. The Fire Keepers are sort of the head, they have the power to veto any decision much like the president of the United States can. The way the United States government is set up is that there are three seperate but equal parts of the government, the judicial, legislative and executive. The Iriqois have a similar system to this. They have three seperate groups, the first being made up of the Tekarihoken, Ayonhwhathah and Shadekariwadeare, the second is Sharenhowaneh, Deyoenhegwenh and Oghrenghrehgowah, the third group is made up of Sharenhowaneh, Deyoenhegwenh and Oghrenghrehgowah. The first two groups are there to make decisions and speak about things whereas the third group is almost a checks and balances group, they are there to guide the groups and correct them on any mistakes.

Law is a living thing, constantly changing…

The Federal Convention convened in the State House (Independence Hall) in Philadelphia on May 14, 1787, to revise the Articles of Confederation. Because the delegations from only two states were at first present, the members adjourned from day to day until a quorum of seven states was obtained on May 25. Through discussion and debate it became clear by mid-June that, rather than amend the existing Articles, the Convention would draft an entirely new frame of government. All through the summer, in…
of the Constitution of 1787
During the debate about the Constitution of 1787, there were three main opinions. The Federalists believed the Constitution was perfect and did not need any more changes before ratifying. The Anti-Federalists opinion was that there needed to be more rights for individual citizens added to the Constitution and a greater balance between the central government and states. The third opinion was pro-citizen and wanted a loose central government and stronger state governments…
