Its been awhile, this was a great excuse to read the Articles of Confederation again.

Id say that without a doubt, what needs to be updates is:

11. “Requires nine states to approve the admission of a new state into the confederacy; pre-approves Canada, if it applies for membership.” ——-Reason being that (1) Canada isn’t going to apply to be apart of the United States ever and (2) the number of states needed to raised to 40 states.

That being said Id say yes, money, laws, and army are problems there, but at this point Id say a little less decentralization would be great as well. We no longer live in the colonel period, this being important to say because at the time this was all completely justifiable and worked very well. But as I said, we are not in the 1700s anymore and we need to update this to address the needs and weaknesses we have now. This can be solved by simply removing the Articles of Conderation from having any say so at all these days.

The problem between central and decentralized power does exist, but I cannot stress enough that this is not for the greater good of any single state or small grouping of states, this only happens for political show and elections. That is to say that a governor will more than likely challenge the federal government because to do so will serve his appearance in the next state election.

I dont believe that we should go any further than elimination the Articles from having power completely separate of the federal government.
