What is “Federalism”?

by Publius Huldah

I’ll explain it:  With our Constitution, we created a federal  FORM of government:  A federation of Sovereign States united together ONLY for those limited purposes enumerated in the Constitution, with all other powers reserved by The States or The People.

This one page chart illustrates the federal FORM of the government created by the Constitution – and lists most of the enumerated powers delegated to the national government.  As you see from the chart, it is a short list:  depending on how you count, we delegated only 18 -21 powers to the national part of the “federal” government.

“Federalism” was implemented beautifully by our Framers in our Constitution.

This is important.
