Weekly ITPS: Constitution and Division of Powers - Part 1

11 Mar. 2012 Posted by The Angry Man in Podcast: ITPS Weekly

Listen in as Host Nick Ellis and John Snyder discuss the proper interpretation of state powers in a federal system of governance.  In this age where the federal government is involved in almost every aspect of our lives, what are the proper limitations of nation and state power.  The discussion touches on the abuse of terms like “sovereignty,” “autonomy,” “federal government,” “federalism,” “state’s rights,” and “reserved powers.”  John Snyder itemizes the limitations on state powers listed in Article 1, Section 10, and reads from the Constitution to explain the limited powers of the national government.
