Storyboard Text

  • We need a set of rules and laws to set how to govern our new country. We will create the Articles of Con(fail)deration.
  • Ok, we will give you the rights to independent state constitutions.
  • WE THE PEOPLE, DO NOT want a overpowered central government. We want independent states.
  • We'll make an official system to organize the land in the Ordinance of 1785
  • WE THE PEOPLE Want to be free of the Proclamation of 1763 and settle out west, but we don't know how. 
  • How about we issue The Northwest Ordinance. A way to govern this new territory and admit new states into the union.
  • WE THE PEOPLE most definitely need to govern these new territories and hey, maybe this should be a new state, but again how? 
  • Hmmm...Some revision may be necessary 
  • I need money for defense and debt, so I'm going to tax you.
  • No, only STATES can tax as per the Articles.
  • I need to pay for the Revolution, so I'll imprison the farmers if they don't give me the money they owe me , but I won't give them the money I owe them.
  • Uh-Oh
  • Hey Congress, this is an outrage they fought for our freedom. How about we burn down some courthouses
  • It is obvious that this whole "confederation" thing isn't going to work
  • WE THE PEOPLE Agree. Let's trash this Con-failure
