The united States under the Articles was not effectively governed - that's exactly why the Articles were replaced by the Constitution.

There was no national economy - or a currency that was uniform throughout the land. America was, and still is, a land of trade. It was curtailed because of no uniformity in exchange.

There was no equal recourse to justice - a famous early case is about the farmer in Pennsylvania whose geese could not be marketed effectively in Maryland, just a few miles away, because there was a state import duty.

There was no method of agreement on development of new territories, or of improvements in transportation and communication.

There was no equality in legislation - each state, no matter how large or small in wealth and population, had the same vote in the national legislature.

The system broke down because there was little incentive to make it work.

Why is secession unconstitutional?

1- The south did not properly seceed. To seceed, it must be put through ALL of the senate. They did not do that. 2- The Articles of Confederation. Abraham Lincoln stated that the Constitution was a more perfect union than the earlier Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union, but that the Articles had established the permanence of the Union in a binding contract. He called any secession "legally void". 3- The definition of democracy itself. To be in a democracy, you must work together. The south refused to give an inch, thus they left. That was not democracy, it was just giving up on a system because you refuse to compramise. Hope that helps!

What was the reason for creating the Articles of Confederation?

The Articles were a document that acted as a plan of government, but it loosely bound the states. The reason for the loosebinding was because it was believed that as little power as possible should be exerted upon states, and that states should have the most power. So the United States was not a country, it was a group of independent states that worked together. But soon enough, people knew the new government was not working, so the Articles were thrown away (figuratively) and the constitution replaced it.

What plan proposed scrapping the Articles of Confederation and creating a new national government with the power to make laws binding upon the states and rise money through taxes?

Well... The thing was, scrapping the Articles of Confederation wasn't planned, from what I understand. When what later would be called the Constitutional Convention was called up in Philidelphia (Our capitol, before D.C had been planned and built) the original delegates simply planned to rewrite the Articles, as I understand. However, upon careful investigation, they reached a consensus that the Articles were simply too flawed to be simply rewritten, so they decided to scrap the Articles, and began the drafting of what is now the United States Constitution. Short answer, the Constitution.

Is bonding the same as binding?

The meaning of these words is very similar although not identical. If you tie something together with rope, that is binding, not bonding, but if you glue something together that would be bonding, not binding; both are forms of attachment, but not exactly the same kind. When two atoms form a molecule that is bonding, not binding. If you enter into a legal contract, it is said to be binding, not bonding.
