A Comparison Between the AOC, NAC & USC


AOC stands for the Articles of Confederation.  NAC stands for the New Articles of Confederation.  USC stands for the  United States Constitution.  As we no longer are under the AOC, nor are yet under the NAC, some of these are necessarily projected assessments. USC assessments are for the current environment.
