Hamilton based the Constitution on nothin because he didnt write it. James Maddison worte it and he based it on what Montesquie said about the separation of powers to keep the gov. in control.

This creates a basis for the judicial system to base their legal rulings on when determining if a person is innocent or guilty of committing a criminal offense.

Asked in US Constitution
Does the constitution control the government?
The constitution sets down how the US government will work. It does, in a manner of speaking 'control' the government, for it has all the laws, but it is more the base for the government, since it can be amended. It isn't the government itself. There are many ways of thinking about the constitution--a base, a way to control something, etc. In my opinion, there is no real 'controller' of the US government, since it was set up just because of that; to make sure that there is equal balance between all branches. The closest thing to a controller is the president--but he is more of a leader than that. Hope this helps! (If you like this answer, please give me a trust point) Isabella246

Are the articles of confederation the same as the US Constitution?
No. The Articles of Confederation was the first base of the federal government. After Shays's Rebellion, though, Congress and the state legislatures realized that the Articles were not strong enough, so they decided to fix them. When they realized the Articles couldn't be fixed, each state sent a delegate to the Constitutional Convention, and wrote what is now our U.S. Constitution. Note: I completely rewrote the previous answer because the Articles were NOT a constitution. The Articles were a base for the government, as is the Constitution. Also, the grammar in the previous answer sucked, and I'm a grammar Nazi.
