Can Alexander Hamilton bring the delegates to the yard in order to fix the Articles of Confederation?

The Articles of Confederation are flawed,
With no new amendments because,
We’d need a unanimous charge,
Which I tell you is impossibly hard,
The Articles of Confederation are flawed,
We can’t tax, the states disregard,
No strength to enforce the laws,
This government is big faux pas,

It was the country’s,
First Constitution,
Passed in the Revolution, but
Made states too strong,
Fed’s powers none,
It’s pretty dumb,

We can declare war, but who will fight it?
We can’t force people to join the army,
We can print money, so can the states,
What good’s a dollar that no one’s taking,

The Articles of Confederation are flawed,
Congress can’t regulate commerce,
It’s made the economy worse,
States are putting tariffs on each other,
The Articles of Confederation are flawed,
To ensure limited power,
Goes to the central gov,
Made a system which simply does not work,

There’s only one branch,
The Legislative,
Unicameral, where is the
And Justices,
It’s powerless,

Just to pass a bill, need 9 of 13,
States to approve it, won’t hold my breath,
People know it’s weak, in Massachusetts,
The Shays’ Rebellion, we barely stopped it,

The Articles of Confederation are flawed,
I say this in Annapolis,
To discuss a better system,
We must meet in ’87,
The Articles of Confederation are flawed,
Let’s meet in Philadelphia,
At Independence Hall,
Where we will write a new Constitution!

    EEEEeeek! Love the kitty!!! Amazing video! It gave me a clearer understanding on why the different branches of the government are equal in power and can say No, and have it redone and tweaked, and presented again. How if this didn't happen, then things statewise, could go terribly wrong. TY!
