James Madison said: "The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined." (Federalist Papers #45)   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 (Amendment X of the Bill of Rights).
