  • We have Individual RIghts goverment which gives us freedom in speech ,religion, voting , press , assembly and much more
  • This principle is seen in the constitution as the 10th amendment, it states 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. this shows that the USA doesn't have all the power, and that it is reserved for the states so they can make their decisions for their state.
