Although the President has the power of pocket veto, they only happen when congress is about to go to session and it is very unlikely to happen.

Like you said the Presidents veto can be overridden by two-thirds vote in both House and Senate and although it might not happen often it is still possible. If the issue is important enough the veto can be overridden.

Another reason congress is more powerful than the President is because congress has the power of the purse. Congress—and in particular, the House of Representatives—is invested with the “power of the purse,” the ability to tax and spend public money for the national government.

Congress has the power to impeach The President and The President has no say on what is voted upon. It is stated in Article 2 Section 2 that the president does have the power to grant reprieves and pardons for offenses against the United States, except in the case of impeachment.

Congress is given the power to ratify treaties in Article 2 Section 2. In the article it is states that "shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two-thirds of the Senators present concur". If the president wants a treaty to be ratified two thirds of congress must also want the treaty to be ratified. This shows how congress is more powerful than the president.

We want small governments because it will allow us to have more freedom and be more independent.The Articles of Confederation will give states the rights and power that they deserve. Without small governments it is no different than if we were to be under the rule of England again. “No state legislature, or any power in the state governments, have any more to do in carrying this into effect, than the authority of one state has to do with that of another.”

We want the bill of rights because it will prevent the central government from becoming too powerful. If we do not it would be as if we were still under the control of England. The Bill of Rights were wanted so badly by the anti federalist because it was necessary to safeguard individual rights and liberty. In the Great Compromise it states that, “Additionally, states had their own bills of rights that protected individual liberties like freedom of speech and religion.”
