A Single Word Changed our Country
Are you one of the people who feel that our government operates outside of the boundaries set up in the Constitution? I'll bet you don't know that a single word that is missing from the Constitution allows them to do that?
The word is expressly, and it's missing from the 10th amendment. If that word were in the Constitution, our country would be different.
The 10th amendment essentially says that if the power to do something isn't written in the constitution, the federal government can not do it...but certainly we do lots of things it doesn't say. It was decided a long time ago, that without the word expressly, that congress can assume "implied" powers if The Constitution doesn't specifically say they can't.
