Articles of Not Good-eration

Now the new Americans had to figure out what to do with their government. They did know what they didn't want...



They decided on a Confederation, and their government was found in the Articles of Confederation. The idea was that the states would be a league of great friendship. They would giggle into the night, play truth or dare, and light as a feather stiff as a board.


They would be 13 best friends, sharing hopes, dreams, and fears. They of course would have absolutley no problems at all...

The problem was, since the Americans didn't want a King, they made the central government pretty weak and left the states to run things. This method ran into trouble...

such as, states coining their own money...




Other issues with the Articles were the central government could not tax, or regulate trade, or listen to Yanni.

The Artcles would not last, the friendship of states were becoming frenemies [18].



The United States Government needed a change before things got worse...







[18] A friend who is also an enemy. i.e. Cady Heron and Regina George in Mean Girls.
