    The Articles of Confederation did give a basic guideline on how our country should be run with a few flaws. But without it we most likely wouldn’t have had the Bill of Rights or the Constitution. My only question is when were the Articles of Confederation written and ratified?

      The Articles were created by the same founding fathers who created the Constitution but they were too weak…too limited…not balanced in power. They were written and ratified at the end of the Revolutionary War (1777-1781).

    The Articles of Confederation was a halfway decent start to our young nation. The Articles had laid out at least a diagram of how the national and state government should be. We do need the Bill of Rights, because if we did not have them then those rights would be taken as a privilege instead of god given rights.
