Federal Government Couldn't Tax its Citizens
They could not enforce laws
I can not force it but I can recommend you all to tax so we can feed our soldiers who won us independence.
Lollipop for gum?
They could not Regulate Trade
You can't do that! Wait, I can not force that.
They did not have enough to supply army, build roads, and improve country.
All 13 states had to agree on a change
If some states were breaking their new law, the government could not tell them to obey the law, the states only could enforce.
Government had no Power
If the government really liked a trade but they can not accept it, it was up to the states/
Congress could raising their own Troops
We were raised from the 13 original colonies.
We can not be raised by the government
If one state did not agree like for example Maryland, the proposed change would be cancelled
Proposition: Every state donate money for the army for food and weapons
The states could dictate their progression, add crazy unfair laws, and tax their citizens however they please.
They could not raise their own troops so it was up to the troops coming out of the colonies to tell the future of the army.
