    Could the flaws which plagued the Articles of Confederation have been fixed, say through revisement, without totally tossing out the document? Like a revised Articles of Confederation that would've been somewhere between the Articles, and the original Constitution?

    That is an interesting question, but I would have to do some serious reading of the Articles of Confederacy and all the critiques before I could really form any kind of opinion. High school history class was a long time ago, and I had to delete a lot of information from my brain in order to make room for Child Welfare Policies.

    I do like the very limited role of the Federal Government.

    The 10th Amendment does just that. The problem isn't the Constitution, the problem is that the Constitution is being ignored.
