I had once read that the Articles of Confederation are still law and that the U.S. Constitution did not replace the Articles of Confederation, as i was taught.
I recently read in Matrix and the Constitution that the U.S. Constitution only applies to the federal government or possibly the territories.
The Articles of Confederation and the Constitution of the United States are both part of the organic laws of the USofA.
Organic laws are:
The fundamental law, or constitution, of a state or nation, written or unwritten; that law or system of laws or principles which defines and establishes the organization of its government. St. Louis v. Dorr, 145 Mo. 400, 40 S. Y. 970, 42 L. R. A. OSG, OS Am. St. Rep. 575. – See law dictionary
Why would they claim the articles are not longer valid?
Perhaps we all have more rights under the articles of confederation and the states have more right as well. And maybe this idea was suppressed to make us think the federal government has power over the states. And this couldn’t be further from the truth because the states came first and the states created the federal government. And, of course, the USofA is not a country, it’s a union.
Let’s all study the Articles of Confederation and learn more about our true system of government. I have a feeling the U.S. Constitution applies to something entirely unrelated to me.

And don’t miss another organic law – The Northwest Ordinance
