SLAVES COUNTING IN POPULATION
NJP: "You have lots of slaves that you want to count as people even though you treat them like property."
VP: "They are still people aren’t they so why shouldn’t we count them? Thats despicable not to count them just cause they aren’t like you."
NJP: "But you don’t treat them like us either. You treat them like dirt no, worse than dirt."
VP: "They don’t work hard enough, we might free them if they only worked harder."
REPRESENTATION FOR THE STATES
VP: "Why should all states have equal representation when it is the states with more people who will work harder for the greater good of the U.S."
NJP: "All states should have equal representation because even though there are a lot more people in the bigger states the people in the smaller states should have the same amount of voice as the larger states do."
VP: "Our plan is to have representation according to population, larger states will have more power and they have earned it."
NJP: "Do you want to be like England? Having to much power in one place. I thought that the point was to have separation of power, you are just placing it in one place."
VP: "We think that there should be three branches of government so that no one place has too much power."
NJP: We agree.
RS: "HEY, since you only agree on one thing why don’t you men compromise! Take a little from each of your ideas and then you've got yourself a constitution. You both like the idea of three branches of central government, so place that in. Maybe a slave could count as, say, 3/5 of a person. We could even put in both of your representation ideas. See how easy it is to make a compromise? "
