    Fed:
    Arming and maintaining military.
    Declaring war.
    Maintain infrastructure necessary for transportation of troops cross country. (highways)

    States:
    Everything else.

    Does that seem right?

    Yep, what's in the consitution to a word. If you disagree with it then charge the consitution...

    Our founders greatly feared for good reason an over powering central government. We should try to understand their reasons.

    In a perfect world, I agree with your three choices, but would also add:
    Protecting our borders and space exploration.

    Yep, Anything to do with defense should be a federal government directive. Space is as important as discovering the new world in the 14th century.
