    Why Our Plan is Good:Why Our Plan is Good:
    More population deserves more representation! Larger states should have more power than smaller states because if all states are equal, not everyone in larger states are represented. The majority of the people live in the big states, so the big states should get the majority of the vote. Virginia has the most experience with democracy: We have been governed by the House of Burgesses ever since 1619.

    Convention Activity {virginia-mailer-2013.jpg}
    The crowd was in harmonious silence as the Virginia plan presented their proposals for an ideal government at the Constitutional Convention. As they were presenting their ideals, everyone was silent but the presenters of the New Jersey plan. They viciously hissed at the Virginia plan as they stated that our country was strong and able to build a new strong government. During the whole speech, the puerile and child-like New Jersey plan could not be respectful, and was riotous. As the New Jersey plan spoke, they falsely stated that to be a strong nation "we must be equally represented." Though that is not fair at all, because equal representation would not efficiently represent every man. One man. One vote. "To be or not to be..equal.. That is the question." Obviously the answer is not to be...
    "We must recognize each others differences and accept similarities" was a bold statement declared by a member of the Great Compromise, but a plan as great as the Virginia plan should not need compromise. Summer Dosch said " You fought for the same freedom. You should be equal," and in retaliation Jonathan Sochel declared "we died more." It's no that new jersey did not try as much, but Virginia did have more invested in the war.
    ...
    Ciera added to this refute by saying, " Most of them already are." As the Crispus members tried to convince them that slavery was a "moral abomination" they had much evidence to prove the Dixie Crats wrong with examples such as the 3/5's compromise, yet they come to no avail in freeing the slaves.
    Many realizations come to light as the debate begins. Such as those similar to that "New Jersey needs Virginia a lot more than Virginia needs New Jersey." As Virginia comes in strong, puerile New Jersey threatens to succeed from the union. "You guys can talk the talk, are you gonna walk the walk?" is a very good question asked by Mr. Geib yet when the answer comes they say it is in their best interest not to leave. At this point New jersey is struggling, yet no compromise is reached at the Constitutional Convention.
