What are some of the strengths of the US Constitution?
Keeping this in view, what is the weakness of the constitution?
The weaknesses are: Too much power to congress. Not enough checks/balances on incurring US Debt. Not enough checks/balances on declaring war - those who would declare it should be willing to go themselves - all means of negotiation and collaboration should be tried first.
Subsequently, question is, who benefited from the US Constitution? (People who supported the Constitution became known as Federalists, while those opposed it because they thought it gave too much power to the national government were called Anti-Federalists.)
Considering this, what are the strengths of the Weimar Constitution?
The republic had many democratic strengths. It allowed individual freedoms for everyone. This granted the right to free speech, the right to equality and the right to religion to every German citizen. All adults over the age of twenty could vote.
What were the strengths and weaknesses of the Weimar Constitution?
The Weimar Republic looked like the perfect democracy, but it had two great weaknesses - proportional representation and Article 48.
