Asked in American Revolution
What were the overall causes of the American Revolution?
One major cause was the high taxes. King George would sell the right to collect taxes. The tax collectors would add their commission, which would consist of whatever they wanted to add. Still, it was more complicated. The restrictions on congress in the constitution and the issues faced in the Bill of Rights, or the first 10 amendments of the constitution all dealt with abuses England had committed in America before the Revolutionary War.

Asked in US Constitution
How come only three fourths of the states approve amendments to the constitution?
The legal reason is that Article 5 of the Constitution requires amendments to be ratified by 3/4 of the states either through their legislatures of ratifying conventions as Congress may direct. The Constitution itself when it was created had to be accepted by 3/4 of the states in order to become effective. This was to ensure that the new union would consist of a large number of states to be stable enough to survive as a union of states. Anything less would leave too many states unwilling to support the union if the federal government did something contrary to some state's interests. An amendment to the Constitution is the same as re-writing the contitution, therefore it was felt that the same type of super-majority should be required. Without this requirement, it is theoretically possible to change an agreement that had to be ratified by at least 3/4 by some smaller majority.
