Walter Williams: State vs Federal Power


James Madison, the acknowledged “Father of the Constitution” when he was explaining the constitution and he said that the powers that we gave the federal government are few and well-defined, and those left to the people and the States are indefinite and numerous. I think that all the States should recognize that the power lies with the states, not with the federal government. The States created the federal government the federal government did not create the States.

    That is all fine in theory.
    The states have willingly given up their powers to the federal government in order to get federal money. If the states want Title IV money, they have to accept Title IV standards for welfare, child support, ect.,.
    Want federal education money?
    …you have to accept federal education standards.
    That is how it works.
