The paragrpah you are talking about there has to do with the reasons they formed the federal government, and has nothing to do with what you are
Each state is basically designed to be it's own country. But, they are bound together by the federal government for protection, as well as to ease
problems between the states and not to have wars between the states - as is popular in Europe with all their countries.
So the idea is that the states bind together to form 1 solid defense. If New York is attacked, then Georgia helps and so forth.
It has absolutely nothing to do with turning over all resources to a central authority which is then able to distribute the resources back in the
manner it pleases, which is what you are talking about in general. In fact, that is exactly the reason why they had the revolutionary war to begin
There are plenty of other issues as well, but I'm not going to go into them further since for some reason you completely ignored my first response
and then went and made another thread based on this quote.
Btw, did you know that the revolutionary war was fought by only 4% of the population? Only 40-45% of the population actually supported the cause,
35-45% of the population was neutral, and 15-20% supported the british.
