This is one reason among many: the founding fathers realized that the Articles of Confeneration had a serious drawback regarding its mechanism of change to itself.

There were also problems with the authority of the articles to enforce its own provisions, and too much ambiguity around the individual state rights to engage in some economic, monetary and international activities.

Why did the founding fathers agree to share powers with the states?

The states were in existence before the federal government, and in fact had to ratify the Constitution before it could take effect. Since the states were all essentially sovereign, independent nations, the Founding Fathers could not have done anything without their agreement. In order to get them to accept the Constitution, the state governments of course had to share power with a limited federal government; otherwise they would never have ratified the Constitution, and the United States would not exist.

What states did the founding fathers come from?

There were lots of people who can be called founding fathers. The best thing for you to do is look up the individual names in an encyclopedia or your textbook. Even a dictionary will have the more famous men like Washington and Jefferson. If for some reason you don't have access to any such books do Google searches for the names you have, I'm sure they will all be on the internet many times. Anyway, go look them up. Any writeup on them will tell you their states. Michael Montagne I agree with the person above. The founding fathers are from such a wide rage of places that its hard to name all of the places. If there's once specific place your looking for or a specific founding father you want to find from a certain area do a search on google for the name or otherwise just put in founding fathers from the state of Connecticut or something. I hope i helped. There are many founding fathers that contributed to making our country what it is today but the most recognized are eleven of them. The following is a list of those eleven and what states they came from: George Washington, James Madison, Edmund Randolph, George Mason, and Thomas Jefferson (Virginia); John Adams (Massachusetts); Benjamin Franklin and James Wilson (Pennsylvania); Alexander Hamilton and Gouverneur Morris(New York); and Roger Sherman (Connecticut).

When the founding fathers started you the people who was not included?

Blacks, who still hate the nation to this day so that was a good call. They were slaves, the only people enslaved in history who never got over it. Native Americans weren't included, either. I don't agree with that one. Indians are cool.

Why were many states reluctant to agree to the new US Constitution after the American revolution?

Why do you think so many Americans of 1898 tended to agree with Beveridge's rather than Sumner's views on the issue of colonial expansion?

Is Congress the most or least powerful branch of government?

All the branches of the government are supposed to be equal to terms of power due to checks and balances created by the founding fathers. Congress can be extremely powerful if there is a clear majority faction that controls both the Senate and the House of Representatives, but it is weak if the members of the Senate or House are too divided to agree on anything.
