PSCI 314: Mid-Term #2 Study Guide1.Explain how American constitutionalism is grounded in the principles of the Declaration ofIndependence. What was the leading goal of the Constitutional Framers? What was the goal of theFederalist Papers?According toFederalistNo.9,what had history shown about democracies and whydid Publius argue that America could succeed even though all past democracies had failed?America’s constitutionalism is grounded on the principles of the declaration of the country’s independence.First, the constitution guarantees equal rights to all the citizens of America. The constitution does not state that ablack person or a woman does not have equal rights as other people. The constitution is non-committal on theraces, gender, and social status that should receive ill treatment. Every member of the nation receives equalentitlement to the rights. The laws of the American constitution apply with equality on any human who lives inthe country. What defines the law is nation’s boundary, and not race, class, or gender. The bill of rights in theconstitution protects all the citizens equally. Any violation the principle of equality does not occur within theconstitution. The people who make such violations base them on their personal stances and translations of theprinciples. The right to life, liberty, and looking for happiness, are in the constitution, and they were theprinciples of the declaration.The main goal of the framers of the constitution was to use the legal document to solve the immediate andfuture challenges of the nation. The vision of the framers was a better country for all humans in America. Thedeclaration of the rights in the constitution is general, not specifying any group that should not receive equalrights. The aim of the Federalist papers was to increase the public support for the constitution. The publicationof the papers began after the endorsement of the constitution. The papers increased public awareness about thecivil goods or benefits in the constitution.
