We don't have to pay taxes to national government, YAY. We don't really have good control of our people though, do we?
Hear ye, hear ye! The 13 colonies are now under the Articles of Confederation. We do not pay taxes to the national government, but rather to the state government. This document will change our nation forever!
I won't be forced to pay taxes or quarter soldiers in my house anymore!

We need a better system of government. We have too much to do, and maybe the Senate needs more power.
