What was a major flaw in the Articles of Confederation's idea for the position of president?
Achievements of the Articles While the Articles of Confederation had many weaknesses, it was able to accomplish much. It held the states together until the Constitution was …written. It developed a fair policy for the development of the western lands. The states ceded their claims to the lands west of the Appalachians to the central government. This helped forge a feeling of national unity and congress under the Articles enacted laws to organize the western territories and admit new states on an equal footing with the original states. The Articles successfully negotiated a peace with Great Britain ending the Revolutionary War. Congressional departments of Foreign Affairs, War, Marine, and Treasury were established, each under a secretary. This set the precedent for the creation of the executive cabinets under the Constitution. The Articles also encouraged cooperation among the states. Though not always successful, the Articles provided that each state gave "full faith and credit" to the legal acts of the other states.

There were many flaws in the Articles of Confederation. One was that they failed to unite the former colonies as one nation. The Articles left too many powers to the states ra…ther than the federal government - in fact, under the Articles states could mint their own currency and levy their own taxes. The Articles also under-represented the states in the legislature. There was only a one-house legislature with an equal number of delegates, and this system failed to account for the differences in population between states.
The idea that a strong central government threatens the rights ofthe people and of the states was a major influence on the authorsof the Articles of Confederation.
There was no clear division of powers.
There were several flaws in the Articles of Confederation. Mainly,it was drafted before independence was won. taxes could not becollected, and there was no executive figurehea…d.

Flaws of the Articles of Confederation: Denied a centralized national government; it denied it the power to tax or to regulate trade, not only between the United States and ot…her nations, but also between the states. The Articles of Confederation were meant to put States' Rights over the rights of the National Government The greatest flaw of the Articles of Confederation was that all the power belonged to the states. For example: the U.S. federal government had debts to repay but had no means of enforcing or raising taxes in the states. Furthermore the articles made it nearly impossible to amend the Articles themselves so no problems no matter how glaring could be fixed.
1) It had no power of national taxation. 2) No power to control trade. 3)Provided for a comparatively weak executive. http://www.constitutionfacts.com/index.cfm?sect…ion=articles&page=intro.cfm
The Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union , commonly referred to as the Articles of Confederation , was the first constitution of the United States of America and le…gally established the union of the states. The Second Continental Congress appointed a committee to draft the Articles in June 1776 and sent the draft to the states for ratification in November 1777. The ratification process was completed in March 1781, legally federating the sovereign and independent states, already cooperating through the Continental Congress, into a new federation styled the "United States of America". Under the Articles the states retained sovereignty over all governmental functions not specifically relinquished to the central government. On June 12, 1776, a day after appointing a committee to prepare a draft declaration of independence, the Second Continental Congress resolved to appoint a committee of thirteen to prepare a draft of a constitution for a confederate type of union. The last draft of the Articles was written in the summer of 1777 and the Second Continental Congress approved them for ratification by the States on November 15, 1777 in York, Pennsylvania after a year of debate. In practice the final draft of the Articles served as the de facto system of government used by the Congress ("the United States in Congress assembled") until it became de jure by final ratification on March 1, 1781; at which point Congress became the Congress of the Confederation. The Articles set the rules for operations of the "United States" confederation. The confederation was capable of making war, negotiating diplomatic agreements, and resolving issues regarding the western territories. An important element of the Articles was that Article XIII stipulated that "their provisions shall be inviolably observed by every state" and "the Union shall be perpetual". The Articles were created by the chosen representatives of the states in the Second Continental Congress out of a perceived need to have "a plan of confederacy for securing the freedom, sovereignty, and independence of the United States." Although serving a crucial role in the victory in the American Revolutionary War, a group of reformers,  known as "federalists", felt that the Articles lacked the necessary provisions for a sufficiently effective government. Fundamentally, a federation was sought to replace the confederation. The key criticism by those who favored a more powerful central state (i.e. the federalists) [ citation needed ] was that the government (i.e. the Congress of the Confederation) lacked taxing authority; it had to request funds from the states. Also various federalist factions wanted [ citation needed ] a government that could impose uniform tariffs, give land grants, and assume responsibility for unpaid state war debts ("assumption".) Those opposed to the Constitution, known as "anti-federalists," considered these limits on government power to be necessary and good. [ dubious - discuss ]  Another criticism of the Articles was that they did not strike the right balance between large and small states in the legislative decision making process. [ dubious - discuss ] Due to its one-state, one-vote plank, the larger states were expected to contribute more but had only one vote.
The biggest flaw of the Articles of Confederation was its inability to tax, making revenue completely dependent on the state legislatures.
well the most likely answer would be to " established a court system
I think the biggest problem with the Articles of Confedertion were not working. The government was weak and getting weaker. States were in charge,The Congress could not force …anyone to do what anyone to do what was needed for the country.
The lack of power Central Government had and too much power in the States
It was known for being weak, unable to impose taxes or do much that would really help to unite the colonies for a cause. Apart from its important Northwest Land Ordnance, it c…an be considered a failure that the constitution was created to correct.
I think because they could not make rules for the states
