America Government

Do you think our country's history would be different if the Articles of Confederation had remained as our constitution?

Yes, I do think our country's history would be different if the Articles had remained as our constitution. Being that this government was so weak there is no protection for each state which means they will probably be taken over by French or British rule. Instead of one nation you would have thirteen separate countries to negotiate their own treaties. There would be a much greater chance of currency being counterfeited with each state. There would be no trade since each state refused to accept any currency from any other state. With a national government lacking the means to raise funds for essential services who would risk investing in any state that could not regulate its own economy. With no funds there is no national defense to establish and maintain an armed force for protection from those that want to rebel whether it be within the state or from outside sources.

    Since this is your conclusion and a hypothetical that you're describing, you need to change some verb tenses. Make sure you are using "could" and "would" throughout.

    "Being that" is a very clumsy way to begin a sentence. How can you rephrase that and make it smoother?

    Get rid of all instances of "you" and rephrase.

    You also need to give reasons why you have come to each conclusion. For example, you state that currency would have been counterfeited, but then you move on to the next idea without explaining WHY you believe the counterfeiting would have happened. Go through each of your ideas and make sure you have explained WHY you believe that would have happened.

    Re-post if you need more input.
