  • The constitution replaced the articles of confederation and was wrote in 1787. It basically creates a central government, gives the government powers (like to collect taxes), provides procedures for scenarios such as elections and supreme court nominations, and protects the rights of the people from the government.

    It creates a government structure, but also has provisions to keep the government in check and keep the people protected from the government.
