  • Articles of Confederation
  • I'm sick of the Articles of Confederation! People need to be payed what they're promised and not taxed more!
  • The Articles are terrible! We have no national currency, that means no ability to tax states, which means no money for an army! There's so much more wrong with them too!

  • The Articles of Confederation were okay for the U.S to function by during the Revolutionary War, but after there was a lot wrong with it.
