Many of the States refused...

to ratify the Constitution based on the same concerns expressed by Patrick Henry. The compromise was the Bill of Rights, which included the tenth amendment that gave all powers not specifically granted to the Federal government to the States.

When we previously exchanged comments on anarchism, I mentioned my experience in a northern California community where many political activists and civic leaders were openly anarchist. They were very controlling and used government to coerce conformity. All their coercive tactics were portrayed as serving the cause of economic and social justice. I hear the very same sentiments from the anarchists at DP who claim to oppose government, but in reality, are just advocating for a "privatized" government.

There's a saying on Wall Street: The bulls make money and the bears make money, but the pigs get slaughtered. For now, the pigs are running this country and there's no doubt in my mind that anarchists are nothing but a front for the pigs. If I were an anarchist, I would cut my losses and get out of the pig pen before the slaughter. (Fraud and the Federal debt) (Rand Paul: One person can make a difference) (Fast and Furious hearing)
