January 27, 2011 Emma Torpy POLISCI breakout CH. 4—Constitution What surprised me most about this chapter was finding that Georgia had gone through 10 constitutions and that since our newest one in 1983 there have been 67 amendments. I’m glad this happened because I was startled that Georgia’s original charter did not allow religious freedom for Jews or Catholics. I was also surprised that the state of Georgia did not adopt the federal equal protection clause until 1983. I also was interested in the many reasons that the constitution has undergone so many revisions—to edit how the governor is elected, to follow in the footsteps of the Confederate Constitution, to get back into the Union, and to replace the constitution from Reconstruction times. I also was fascinated by the differences in the federal and state constitutions. I like this because it can allow for the states to perceive the law as they need see as right for their constituents. And it allows for the federal constitution to be the umbrella for the laws of all states.
