The article of confederation had many problems to deal with. Then the constitution fixed all those problems. The article of confederation had a weak government that couldn’t hold up any country. The article of confederation didnt let congress levy taxes, and could only borrow money on credit. There was no executive branch to enforce laws. Also states made there own currency. The constitution had a executive, judicial, and legislative branch to create, enforce, and make sure the laws are not against the constitution. The constitution also limited power of a central government so that they won’t have the same government they had with Britain. In the article of confederation the states had more power so the constitution divided power between the Federal government and state governments. After the article of confederation people were afraid that the central government will have to much power they separated into to groups Federalist who were for the constitution and Anti-federalist who were against it. The they drafted a bill of rights which limited the central government and protected the people’s rights. The constitution really was a big deal for the U.S., that was when we made a government that works.
