Well, that is what we had prior to the constitution. Under the articles of confederation the federal government was more or less without any power at all. It was a total disaster. That's why they drafted the constitution.

Greenhouse gases: Any gas that, by an accident of chemistry, happens to absorb radiation of a type that the Earth, by an accident of history, would like to lose.
The internet is like a herd of performing elephants with diarrhoea -- massive, difficult to redirect, awe-inspiring, entertaining, and a source of mind- boggling amounts of excrement when you least expect it.
In these united states, however, the majority is restrained by the constitution. The majority may only exercise authority over certain specific subjects, and is forbidden from ruling in areas to which it has not been granted authority. For example, the majority may not establish an official religion.
In our constitutional republic, I donít really think one can seriously claim that the majority rules in all instances and that the minority must simply suck it up and love it or leave it.
