The Articles of Confederation and Constitution has some areas of similarities. It is stated Articles and in Constitution that individual states do not have the right enter into war. The federal government but not the state government was in charge of the finances. There were term limits developed for the different offices in the government. Every state had to mandatorily follow the tenets. The man differences between the Articles of Confederation and the Constitution is that in Articles there is allowing of Canada to be eventually merged into America into one nation. This was removed in the Constitution.
In the Articles, it explicitly states that the amendments can be made only if all the states agreed on the ideology. In the Constitution, only ¾ had to agree to enact an amendment. The Article give more power to the states and minimal federal government power. The Articles of Confederation gives power to the Congress. The constitution had one congress and two sub-divisions. It is the Senate and House of Representative (Church, 2014, p. 34). The Article did not set up a country. The Articles explained the role of the State and the scope of their power. There was very little information about the government “separation of powers” notion. The Articles had a unicameral Congress without an executive and judiciary body. There were many broader values that instilled in the Article. It can be considered as an inception point that paved the way towards creation of the constitution. The states had more power in the Articles of Confederation. The former colonies were hesitant to make England stronger. Taxes could not be collected from the state. The states had a lot of power and it was difficult to maintain the Federal government.
The Constitution created a government that was stronger. There was Federalism that was instilled in this ideology. It was more decentralized with three branches of government (Church, 2014, p. 34). From this, it can be alluded that constitution had more power and enabled in the creation of a stronger government. From analysis of the Constitution and Articles of Confederation, it is found that constitution gave more powers to the central government. These were vehemently opposed by the Anti-federalist.
