    The federal constitution is not a document of human rights but a document that divides all power between its citizens and it's government because very little in most U.S. constitutions mention anything about any particular "human right" but do mention specific powers that that government has. The tenth amendment solidifies this by stating simply that the federal government is solely entitled to those specific powers but all other powers remaining are for the states. This gives each state all legal powers over its citizens with the exception of powers designated to the federal government or powers specifically prohibited to each state.

    The federal constitution garantees each state a republican or constitutional form of government that defines the powers each state has over its own citizens and those states are forbidden to go outside those defined powers much like the federal government is equally forbidden to do so. All other powers that are not vested in the federal government or state government are reserved for the citizen of each state and those powers define what our rights are as individual citizens and that is all powers outside the constitutionally defined powers of either the state or federal government.

    Any power that the federal or state government wishes to enact over its citizens must be questioned if that government has the power to do so by the constitution that governs it and if it does not then that means that that power is reserved for the citizen and then we can call that a right so all powers outside the limited powers of the federal or state governments is where our rights begin.
