"WE, THE PEOPLE of the Unite…d States, tosecure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, doORDAIN and ESTABLISH this Constitution for the United States ofAmerica." Here is a better recognition of popular rights, thanvolumes of those aphorisms which make the principal figure inseveral of our State bills of rights, and which would sound muchbetter in a treatise of ethics than in a constitution ofgovernment. Amendment X The powers not delegated to theUnited States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to thestates, are reserved to the states respectively, or to thepeople. American civil government was founded on atrinity of legal spheres of action, the Federal the states and thePeople Ourselves. The things that the people can freely do whilegoing about their liberties are secured to the legal federal voiceof the People Ourselves a 3/4 majority of conventions of the peoplein each of our several states. Amendment XIV section 1 ... No state shallmake or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges orimmunities of the citizens of the United States;... Amendment IX the enumeration in theConstitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny ordisparage the others retained by the people.
