Articles of Confederation
* needed 9/13 states to agree to pass laws
* needed all states to agree change laws
* couldn't enforce laws
* couldn't tax the states
* states started to suffer economically
The problem with the articles of confederation was it's lack of central government power. The reason behind the way the early founders designed it was because of the fear that the government would get corrupted and become like and act like England, their suppressors.
