    Drugs are definitely state, international relations obviously federal, immigration is federal.

    Abortion I believe is simply within the right to privacy, therefor neither state nor federal? It's a right.

    Education is a state issue.

    Slavery??!?!?!?
    well if someone is importing slaves from say the Congo or North Korea maybe that would be international!!

    That isn't what my statement said, but yes I agree. Democrats (and to a lesser extent, Republicans) are taking away the rights of the peoples.

    They aren't taking away rights of states, rather they are abridging state powers.

    Like I said, abortion is a right, government cannot and will not touch abortion (yes I know, a liberal saying "shoo government!" for something).

    actually immigration is a state power.

    the constitution only grants congress the power to make the immigration/ naturalization laws of the states uniform.

    remember in 1787 there is no such thing as a u.s. citizen, only state Citizens, and congress cannot create a state Citizen.

    You make no sense. Abortion is a issue every election. A mother does not have a right to kill her child

    Re: Which of these is a state right?

    as to the powers of the OP, all powers with deal with the individual life's of the people are state powers.

    note ..but a person has the right to petition the federal government[USSC] to hear their case if they feel powers of the states violate rights.

    one of the problems today is congress use it powers to try to right wrongs, instead of the court doing it which is their job.

    Sorry guys, I'll remake the thread in a bit. I completely skipped over the multiple choice option.
