Tenth Amendment

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.

The Tenth Amendment, the final amendment of the Bill of Rights, states that the powers not specifically given to the federal government in the Constitution are reserved for the individual states.

In this video, Representative Sam Rohrer of the 128th District of Berks Country explains the history and purposes of the Tenth Amendment. He claims that the government is increasly overstepping its bounds into areas of state power. I do not know how I feel because I do not know enough about the situations.

This promotional video was garnering support for the Washington State Tea Party on January 14, 2010. The state of Washington was reintroducing HJM4009 bill for state sovereignty. 

This video features a great rap summarizing the Bill of Rights- the first ten amendments of the Constitution!
