A Diary Entry About The Writing Of The Constitution, By George Mason

443 words - 2 pages

Dear Congressmen,Today on Monday August 6, 1787 we finally settled on the first draft of the Constitution. This was a big step, because Northern colonies couldn't agree with with these new set of laws we are providing as a basis for the United States. After fighting this war for independence it seems more than appropriate than to set a foundation for these states to live by. Congress wanted to have the power to regulate trade and tax traded items.Today on August the 21st , our most controversial issue that we talked of was slavery, and how it would be dealt with legally. Slavery at that time was an American tradition in the south. Southerners thought it was moral to hold slaves, but everyone really knows that work can be done on their own. I am not a strong believer for or against slavery, but if it shall be abolished, then the law shall be upheld. Then it was decided that 20 years of slave importation would still be allowed, and changes would be made from there.Today on August 31st, a stubborn George Mason wanted a brand new government, but everyone else agreed that it was totally ridiculous to totally change our policies and ways. Our next topic of discussion was the fair method of how to choose a representative, the president, and other lower cabinet members. Many ideas were suggested, but of those ideas, we voted on the most sensible.Having an Electoral College was the decision. Each state in this situation gets their representation by their population with a representative according to the size (in population) of each state. The state would choose their representatives, and the House would choose president in the case of unknown electoral votes. The Constitution will soon be turned over to a Committee of Style and Arrangement, to be improved and improvised.Today, September 17th , The Constitution had been amended by the states and now is signed and agreed on by all. The states carry their own piece of the Constitution and they amend it to the ways they need. So, it is now ready to be copied and processed, then sent out to be our foundation and distinct set of rules for our country. This final copy of the Constitution is the basis of our country, and how our country should be governed.Signed,George Mason
