Its called the tenth amendment of the constitution.
stating that the federal government possesses only those powers delegated to it by the states or the people.
The states are supposed to run the feds, not the other way around.

Dude, I LOVE history. History and science (and maybe math) are the keys to unlocking the future. History because you have to study the cycles and patterns that humans engage their behavior in and science to show how everything works. Much of the stupidity in America is a direct result of people not studying history. For example: anyone who claims that Obama (or heck, even Bush) is the worst president we've ever had, is clueless about our past presidents. Grant takes the the title as the most corrupt, and keep in mind that Nixon straight up had to resign over his terrible behavior.

Yes, and if we still had the same standards of behavior that we had when Nixon was president, Obama would be out too.
