During the war, those militias were unified. We were lucky that we won. It would still be best if everyone had the same supplies and regulations, for a nation divided can not stand. Do not forget about the supply shortages our troops did face during the war. It was unorganized.

People would still have their inalienable rights. If at any point things were seen as unjust, the Power of The Purse could be used to stop funding. And, overall, a standing army would be better funded as seen in Article 1, Section 8. Better training would be provided, and there would be more regulation. If anything, it is safer for those in the army.

Inalienable rights would NOT be taken with a standing army. IF, for whatever reason, the army were tyrannical, the citizens would be able to elect a new representative in Congress (Article 1, Federalist 8). This representative would be able to use the Power of Purse to defund it. The people would still have control.

Our nation needs to have one central currency to allow our country to grow as a whole. Article 1, Section 8 states that “No Preference shall be given by any Regulation of Commerce or Revenue to the Ports of one State over those of another; nor shall Vessels bound to, or from, one State, be obliged to enter, clear, or pay Duties in another.” State to state trade, and trade with other countries, will be more efficient and desirable if the system of currency is not changing every state. The amount one holds will be equal anywhere they stand within the United States. Economic growth will not be interfered with as Rhode Island believes. Each state will have the same ability to create economic growth as before the constitution, and get to keep what they already have in the form of a new currency.

The Constitution is needed to centralize our new nation. It will provide better military support as seen in the enumerated powers (Article 1, Section 8), as opposed to the weak militias in the Articles. The National Government will regulate these militias, providing better supplies, training, and standards overall. Thus, we will have a strong standing army. It is a necessity for a “real” country, such as England, that could invade us, so we need to be prepared to defend our land.
