    1. Write at least one thing you learned, realized, or want to know more about after reading the below information about Federalism and the 10th Amendment.
    2. Also, write what you think the connection might be between federalism and the 10th Amendment. You can also discuss what you know about exclusive powers and shared powers. If you are not sure just take a guess or ask questions.

    I learned that “federalism” is not used in Tenth Amendment. This Amendment attaches USpower and States power. USand States powers are separately thus we can talk about federalism.

    Its very interesying to know about “Dual Sovereignty” in the USA. Also curiously to hear that the word ‘federalism’ does not appear in the Constitution. Hovever Amendment X explains this definition like 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.

    Frankly speaking, I’ve realized nothing new from the text about federalism and the Tenth Amedment. But, if my dear teacher asked me to write something, using new words, I’ve learned, surely, I would like to express the summary below. Pursuant to the text federalism is based on the powers’ division theory and appeared not today and even not 200 years ago. They consider that beginnig of federalism is found at ancient greek philosophers as Plathon, but similar phenomenon could be seen already in Roman Empire. I think federal system expressly inherits imperial (imperialistic) features, respectively, federal government has “supreme” powers and state powers look like “inferior”. But today national government in the USA has to act in response to some issues, only in cooperation with state government.Thus there are exclusive powers omny of the federal government and shared. ones, which are on a field of division between national and state government. Such called “dual soverenthy” is explicit refered to the 10th Amendment.

    The connection between the 10th Amendment and federalism in the USA is not so explicit as that is said in the text. The 10th Amendment reflects only some elements of federalism – federal priority and existing of concurrent powres. But it is worth noting that concurrent powers are not detalized in Constitution, only mentioned. I realized that in accordance with s. 8-10 art. I of the Constitution only landmarks in national and state powers division are vested (may I use this word i such context?). As any other law of majority of capitalistic country, the Constitution regulates predominantly legal question in sphere of “money”, “war” and “army” and my lovely “militia” as a part of army. Wherein even is such issues the Constitution contains many exeptions, for example as in last part of sec.10. . .
