The United states consist of two different governments state and federal Each government is based on the constitution and has power over any person under its law The United States is considered to have a Federal form of government This type of government offers a number of checks and balances between the two governments Usually what one government misses the other government corrects The Federal government seems to be the check in most cases and not the balance The federal government sets the base of the law and the state governments to add An age old debate is what powers privileges duties and responsibilities the Constitution grants to the national government and reserve to the states and the people This debate seems to be never ending with our laws changing almost daily how do you justify giving someone power when in a matter of weeks they will be under qualified Even if you freeze all the changing laws how do you justify who gets to do what and who gets what power If you think about it that way you will be glade we have two governments When the state and federal government conflict federal law overrules the sate law says the Constitution Article I Section 8 The Constitution prohibits both state and national governments from taking private land without compensating creating a national religion and preventing people from freedom of religion We are also guaranteed that neither of the governments can abolish the other so there will always be a state and national government no matter what they do These are all some of our basic rights as an American guaranteed to us by the constitution Dual federalism is the idea that the state and national governments are equal partners with separate and distinct areas of authority this idea was before our current day federalism Justice Marshall interpretation of the Constitution was that our national government was the peoples creation
