Under what government did the confederation congress exist?
There were many reasons why the constitution replaced the articles of confederation. Did you hear about Shay's Rebellion? It showed that the nation needed a Commander and Chief of the armed forces on duty at all times. Under the Articles of Confederation, only congress could call up the army. Congress was not in session. States were arguing with each other and going to war with each other. Taxes existed when goods crossed state borders. Congress… Read More

None of the branches of government as they now exist were in place at the time the Constitution was signed. When it was "signed", if that means approved by the Constitutional Convention and sent to the states for ratification. Until the Constitution was actually ratified by the requisite number of states, they continued to operate under the prior Articles of Confederation. Congress was a single house body. There was no President and no federal judiciary.
Is it true that Congress adopted the Olive Branch Petition asking Parliament not to break from the colonies until a compromise could be worked out?
yes ========== It should be pointed out that that would be the Continental Congress, a somewhat loose organization which operated under the Articles of Confederation. The Constitution of the United States, and the Congress that has consinuously existed since being established did not exist until after the Revolutionary War.

Manitoba did not exist as a separate entity before it entered Confederation. Manitoba was created out of the North-western Territories by the federal government.

They haven't. The Executive Branch of government did not exist until the United States Constitution was signed in 1787. Many individuals claim many different names of the first president under the "Articles of Confederation"; however, during that time, only a Legislative Branch existed, hence the presidential title did not exist. The first head of the Executive Branch was George Washington.
What were the problems with the articles of confederation and how did the failures of the articles of confederation help with the creation of the constitution?
There were many weaknesses under the Articles of Confederation. Congress had trouble passing laws due to the fact that 9 of the 13 states had to agree before any laws could be passed. Since there was no president or an executive branch, there was no way to make sure that laws passed by Congress were carried out. There were no courts to interpret laws or to judge those that broke them because a national court… Read More
One does not exist, as the 1781 Articles of Confederation were never repealed. They were superceded by the states' ratification of the US Constitution in 1788 (which clearly stipulated that, upon ratification, it would become the legal basis for the government).

Nunavut did not "join" Confederation. Most of the land had been transferred from Britain to Canada on July 15, 1870. As a result of the largest aboriginal land claims agreement, Nunavut was created out of Northwest Territories by the federal government as a homeland for Inuit peoples. Prior to April 1, 1999, Nunavut did not exist as a political entity. Therefore it could not "join" Confederation. Nunavut was created by the Government of Canada out… Read More
Type your answer here... As you have learned, the Declaration of Independence was a document that stated our reasons for separating from England. The Declaration of Independence did not provide a new government for the new nation. In 1777, while the Revolutionary War was still going on, the Continental Congress drew up a plan for our first official government. This plan was called the Articles of Confederation. It was accepted by the 13 states and… Read More
What weaknesses did the founders realize about the Articles of Confederation and what was the primary weakness?
The articles gave the government no separation of powers. The government was too weak, as the Articles left much of the power to the states. Congress didn't have the power to tax. Congress couldn't regulate commerce between the states. To change the Articles, it had to be decided unanimously by all states. Also, 9 out of the 13 states had to approve any major law before it was passed, so that even the normal business… Read More

No. All sorts of urban legends exist to the effect that there were, the most common confusing a white politician from Maryland named John Hanson who served as the ninth president of the Continental Congress and the third under the Articles of Confederation with an African-American of the same name who lived much later and was president of the American Colonization Society and a Liberian senator.

A confederation of states is one in which equal and sovereign states combine in a federation for mutual benefit and defense. Each state retaining full authority as sovereign nations, ceding only those powers deemed mutually beneficial to a joint governing body. In such a construct, only a unanimous decision by all states become binding on each. For example: If California wanted to ban oil drilling in the US, All 50 states would have to agree… Read More
government can exist without state but the state can't exist without government.
Wrong. First, Ontario did not exist as such until Confederation. Second, that part of the Province of Canada which had formerly been Upper Canada (and which formed the basis of today's Ontario) had the most to gain from Confederation and was the strongest supporter of Confederation. Third, although all provinces have benefited from Confederation, it is probably fair to say that Ontario has benefited the most from Confederation.

The Tea Party is a new phenomenon. It did not exist when the Republicans last controlled Congress and so could control government spending.
Direct Democracies, which compose a number of limited initiatives, such as exist in some Swiss cantons, are governments where the individual citizens vote directly on issues, without a Congress or other indirect form of election. The citizens are effectively the decision-makers of the government.
because if there is no government there will be no laws to follow.
No the WPA does not still exist. As it states on Wikipedia, the WPA was closed down by Congress and the war boom in 1943.
No. That would have been impossible because the Great Compromise took place in 1787 and the Supreme Court wasn't formed until 1789. The Great Compromise of 1787 occurred during the Constitutional Convention, and involved how the Legislative Branch was going to determine how many representatives participated for each state. The Compromise was worked out amongst the members of the Convention, and was settled when Connecticut Deligate Roger Sherman proposed Congress should consist of two chambers… Read More
Both countries have a federal representative republic as government system, composed by three branches: the executive, the judiciary and the legislative; the later composed by a bicameral congress. The major difference lies on the Electoral College, which doesn't exist in Mexico. This means federal elections held in Mexico are the result of direct popular vote.

When Canada came into being on July 1, 1867, there were four original provinces: Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. Each original province entered Confederation at the same time and none has a priority of entry over any of the others. The fifth province to enter Confederation was Manitoba, but it was created by the federal government out of part of the Northwest Territories. Although it is correct to say that Manitoba "entered" Confederation… Read More
Freedom of belief ... and all other manifestations of individualism. From earliest ages, Soviet children were taught that and individualist was as dangerous to the general well-being as a nail protruding from a wooden walkway.
