Federal Government of the United StatesEdit
The US Constitution created a limited Federal Government in the form of a republic with specific enumerated powers. Ammendment #10 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."
Article #2 of the Constitution established the Executive branch of the Federal Government with power vested in a President and Vice President.
Article #3 of the Constitution established the Judicial branch of the Federal Government with power vested in one Supreme Court and such inferior courts as Congress may establish.
"A primary object...should be the education of our youth in the science of government. In a republic, what species of knowledge can be equally important? And what duty more pressing...than communicating it to those who are to be the future guardians of the liberties of the country?" -- George Washington
Article IV of the US Constitution guarantees equal treatment of citizens from any state and requires each state to adopt a Republican form of government.
