The authors of the text argue that “the framers sought to create a new government capable of promoting commerce and protecting property from radical state legislatures and populist forces hostile to the interests of the commercial and propertied classes” (Ginsberg et. al. 2019: 41).
In your initial post, please give two examples of specific powers the Constitution gives to the national government and two ways in which the framers limited the national government’s power under the Constitution. Discuss why the framers granted the two powers that you identify to the national government and why the framers placed such limits on the government they had just created?
In your response posts, review the powers and/or the limits proposed by two of your classmates and assess how successful you believe the Constitutional language has been in empowering and/or limiting the federal government.
