Slavery and the Constitution

            Given that the Constitution was strongly swayed by slave-owners, the Constitution is Pro-Slavery because slaveholders controlled the bureaus and ordered the policy of the Government enforcing the stability and repercussion of the Nation to the provision of slavery here and there; overriding the rights of the Free States, and thus forcing the courts of the nation to be their instruments. From the year 1788 until the year 1860, just two, who were against the principles of slavery, John Adams and John Quincy Adams, obtained the country's main position in office, only for a time period of eight years. While slave-owners obtained the office for fifty years out of these seventy-two years, and northern men, who were not opposed to slavery and adhered southern ideologies (much like Franklin Pierce and James Buchanan) obtained the office for the remainder of the time. Regardless of the indirectness, slavery was endorsed throughout the Constitution. .
             Primarily, the influence of the three-fifths division became prevalent, as its outcome was destructive since, fundamentally, it affected all of the branches of the National government, and offered the slave states an inconsistent benefit in each of the three branches: in the Legislative Branch, since the law precisely influenced and amplified the exemplification of the states that supported slavery in the House; in the Executive Branch directly through the Democratic Party, as stated in Article two of the Constitution: "the Number of Electors [is] equal to the whole Number of Senators and Representatives to which the State may be entitled in the Congress"); as for the Judicial Branch through the Executive Branch, which appoints judges. As in Article one of the Constitution, it is evident how to allocate House seats among the States, including regional provision. Nevertheless, it did not mention the division of House seats inside each State, including inner state provision.
