What are some powers that are reserved for the states and not for the national government?

The question is most likely referring to the Tenth Amendment from the Bill of Rights in the Constitution of the United States of America which is a basic common law axiom. The Tenth Amendment states: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.What powers does the Tenth Amendment refer to? It does not refer to any specific power, but instead, specifically makes clear that the federal government can not declare new unforeseen powers not delegated by the Constitution. The federal government can only do what the Constitution allows it to do. The states have more freedom but are also bound to the Constitution and are prohibited from certain powers and privileges. Whether federal, state or local the governments within the United States of America are bound by the Constitution which serves as the supreme law of the land. Neither the states nor the federal government can infringe upon the peoples right to expression, or right to religious worship, their right to keep and bear arms, their right to privacy, to work and and earn income, to marry, to love...these are all rights that belong to the people and can not be declared a crime by the federal, state or local governments. If the power does not belong to state or federal government then what the Amendment is saying is that the power then belongs to the people, as all power flows from the people.In the matter of jurisdiction there are certain crimes and misdemeanors that fall under the scope of the federal governments jurisdiction. Those crimes and misdemeanors that do not fall under federal jurisdiction are reserved to the states respectively.
