Due to the superior state government of the Articles of Confederation, The Constitution organized powers amongst the federal and state governments in a more equal manner.
The Federal Government has Delegated Powers such as the power to go to war, print money, and sign treaties. While the State Government has Reserved Powers for example the power of dealing with education, death penalties, and gambling.Along with both governments having their own powers, they also have shared powers like taxation, the building and maintaining roads and operating the court systems.
The Constitution was organized to make sure that both the Federal and State governments would not get too much power. That is why the Constitution was written with such details.
The two major political parties in the United States are Democrats and Republicans.
There were many questions about the Articles of Confederation. Some weaknesses of this document is it did not establish a common currency, it had a weak national government, and it didn’t have an executive or judicial branch.
Any bill that wants to become a law must go through a long and arduous process called Ratification.
Senate members must be at least 30 years old, a U.S. citizen for the past 9 years, and live in the state they represent.
There are 2 members per state for a total of 100.
