Calvin Lee started this petition to Citizens of the United States

On  May 29th,1790, Rhode Island became the last state to ratify the Amazing constitution of our United States. In our founding fathers haste to establish their new form of government, however, they wound up abolishing the Articles of Confederation. The form of government instituted by these articles was what allowed us to defeat our British oppressors and claim our independence, they are the reason America even exists today. Despite the success these articles had in protecting and sustaining our nation, they were abolished upon the institution of our Constitution, due to the lack of time the founding fathers had to throw together that document. I feel the time is right for us to reinstate a "firm league of friendship", as too many in America today lack the patriotism brought about by the Articles of Confederation. If you haven't had the privilege to yet read this masterpiece of literature, I have put a link to the PDF below.
