The Constitution: Counter-Revolution or National Salvation?

It is Fall 1787. The Federal Convention has recently concluded its closed-door meetings in Philadelphia and presented the nation with a new model for the government. It is now up to each special state convention to decide whether to replace the Articles of Confederation with this new constitution. The debate is passionate and speaks directly to what the founding fathers had in mind in conceiving this new nation. Does this new government represent salvation or downfall? As a politically active citizen of your region, you will take a stand on this crucial issue of the day.
