Weak Central Government

I believe that the creators of this created a weak central government because they did not put enough force on the states and the people. They did not force them to obey laws so the states thought they could get away with it. They also should have put taxes on some things as well. Also, a government isn't going to be strong without an army or navy standing behind them.
