The Disadvantages of The Articles of Confederation

Advantages -

- A unified army for the United States.

- A legislative branch was set up, where each state gets a vote.

- Each state was able to build up their own army

- Each state had the ability to deal with foreign countries on behalf states

Weaknesses

National government couldn't enforce laws, couldn't tax, needed 9 out of 13 states to pass a law, needed all 13 states to amend a law, and no executive or judicial branch.

I think the reason that they did not want a powerful central government is because they would lose all of their individual power.
