    1. The free exercise clause states that you have the right to practice whatever religion you want, so long as it doesn’t violate the rights of others.

    2. The establish clause says that government cannot establish an official religion or favor a particular one.

    3. I don’t remember Mr. Little ever saying anything about that, but I believe the answer is either Rhode Island or Vermont.
    Delaware was the first, and New Hampshire was the ninth.

    Mr. Little,
    2 ?’s:
    1. (i think i asked u this in class) where do u find the answers on the study guide for the reasons and basics of constituion? notes, quizzies?
    2. are all of the questions on the test going to come from our notes and quizzes and packet? like should we know the packet bwds & fwds n other notes?

  4. Megan:

    FE Clause = gov’t cannot prevent you from believing, nor from practicing, the religion you like.

    Establishment Clause = gov’t cannot establish a national religion, nor can they show favoritism towards one.

    Last state is irrelevant (and debatable). What I’m looking for is the NINTH state to ratify, as that ratified the Constitution… that would be NEW HAMPSHIRE.

  5. Jil:

    I would know, mostly, the online practice tests, the old quizzes, and notes. Where do the answers some from? Look on all the old quizzes and notes… If you have a specific question, let me know!

    hey mr. L i was wordering if I did two comics for the goals of the preamble would they be counted sepretaly or individualy?

  7. They would count as one… I want one page/comic per each of the 9 sections we studied. preamble goals are part of one, so just one of that would be needed.

    hey mr little its jilly again…….what can we do to influence our politicans? -and- why would a direct democracy fail in america!!???!?!?!?!?

    Hey mr little. On the comic I found a symbol that reminds me of the Preamble goals and principles. If I can justify it can I use it?

    Hey Mr. Little i have a few q’s.
    1: what is common good?
    2: what r the principels in order?
    3: what is an indirect election?

  11. Common good is anything that is for the good of the community.
    No order for the principles! They’re like vocab words, not a list.
    An indirect election is when people don’t directly choose the president, but elect those then do it for us. (Electoral college). Instead of traveling in a straight line from A to B (direct), you stop a C along the way (indirect)!

    ok so….
    1: who decides the # of judges and greated courts?
    2: if a state and federal laws come in conflict what is supreme?
    3: what was the last state to ratify the constitution?
    4: what can we do to influence our polititions?
    and i can not remeber the clauses how many do we have on the test????

  13. 1. Congress
    2. Federal… Supremacy clause!
    3. Irrelevant… all you need to know is 9th (New Hampshire)
    4. We can influence by voting, e-mailing, calling, and visiting them with ideas.
    Several Clauses – elastic welfare, establishment, free exercise, supremacy, and full faith and credit

  14. marissa

    i have a few ques
    1.what is the establishment clause and the welfare clause.
    2.what is civic virtue (so confused)
    3.what exactly the 9th amendment
    4.what are the different levels of courts.

  15. 1. Establishment = no gov’t can establish an official religion
    Welfare is also the elastic clause, or the ability to stretch power to make any necessary and proper lawas

    2. civic virtue is when you sacrifice something you want (compromise) for the common good.

    3. 9th Amendment allows the people to have their rights protected. It’s very broad, so that the government can’t control/monitor something they haven’t been explicitly given the power to do (like the internet, cell phones, etc.) They can pass laws to handle those, but those laws do essentially come from the people.

    4. All you need to know for courts is that while there are state and federal courts, we mainly studied the Supreme Court. We discussed how there are then federal district courts below the Supreme Court, but the SC is the big one – they have the greatest power!
