Default Re: True Democracy's Checks & Balances

Separation Of Powers & The Constitution - :-o :-o :-o

"The 10th Amendment to the Constitution says that all powers not granted to the federal government belong to the states or to the people."

"Those who wrote the Constitution clearly understood that power is dangerous and needs to be limited by being separated -- separated not only into the three branches of the national government but also separated as between the whole national government, on the one hand, and the states and the people on the other."


"The kinds of limitations on the power of the national government created by the Constitution are being nuanced out of existence by the courts."
