There's no way you're going to be able to skate by this one No one in their right mind will do the homework you neglected to do. Get off Yahoo Answers and start Googling, and put together a paper. So what if you lose 5 points a day, your grade will be lower but at least you will have got it in.
Procrastination is never a good excuse for failing to uphold your responsibilites.
1. Establishes the name of the confederation as "The United States of America."
2. Asserts the precedence of the separate states over the confederation government, i.e. "Each state retains its sovereignty, freedom, and independence, and every power, jurisdiction, and right, which is not by this Confederation expressly delegated."
3. Establishes the United States as a league of states united ". . . for their common defense, the security of their liberties, and their mutual and general welfare, binding themselves to assist each other, against all force offered to, or attacks made upon them . . . ."
4. Establishes freedom of movement–anyone can pass freely between states, excluding "paupers, vagabonds, and fugitives from justice." All people are entitled to the rights established by the state into which he travels. If a crime is committed in one state and the perpetrator flees to another state, he will be extradited to and tried in the state in which the crime was committed.
5. Allocates one vote in the Congress of the Confederation (United States in Congress Assembled) to each state, which was entitled to a delegation of between two and seven members. Members of Congress were appointed by state legislatures; individuals could not serve more than three out of any six years.
6. Only the central government is allowed to conduct foreign relations and to declare war. No states may have navies or standing armies, or engage in war, without permission of Congress (although the state militias are encouraged).
7. When an army is raised for common defense, colonels and military ranks below colonel will be named by the state legislatures.
8. Expenditures by the United States will be paid by funds raised by state legislatures, and apportioned to the states based on the real property values of each.
9. Defines the powers of the central government: to declare war, to set weights and measures (including coins), and for Congress to serve as a final court for disputes between states.
10. Defines a Committee of the States to be a government when Congress is not in session.
11. Requires nine states to approve the admission of a new state into the confederacy; pre-approves Canada, if it applies for membership.
12. Reaffirms that the Confederation accepts war debt incurred by Congress before the Articles.
13. Declares that the Articles are perpetual, and can only be altered by approval of Congress with ratification by all the state legislatures.
I hope this works 4 ya!! i kno how it feels being rushed about homework...best wishes 4 ur paper. I use Wikipedia alot 2 find topics its updated alot and is pretty accurate
you looked and couldn't find anything?
sounds like a little white lie to me. there is heaps of stuff on the net about it. and it isn't an extremely difficult exercise. read each one yourself, and write 4 or 5 lines in your own words about it. show your teacher tomorrow,and if youv'e done it wrong tell them that you don't understand. they can't be mad if you don't understand.
i am so so sorry i cant help i looked through my history book looked on line couldnt find anything
