So, I went looking through the Constitution to see what was there, and I found this.
I'd seen it before, but I started thinking about it. Apparantly, any power not specifically given to the federal government is supposed to be left to the states or the people. That's funny, becuase there's nothing in the Constitution about providing retirement benefits, health care, art funding, education regulation, minimum wage, welfare, or any of a dozen other things. How are we supposed to trust the government when they are so far outside their constitutional bounds that we might as well bury the whole document and let them do what they want.The Constitution said:The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
