States Rights. What?

Watching news programs, reading newspapers, listening to talk radio and participating in several blog sites, I learned that states have rights. At least that's everyone seems to agree on. Maybe it's another reflection of our public school system and the greater agenda of making everything "right".

Well, I'm not really comfortable with the term "states rights".

Only people are endowed by their creator with certain inalienable "rights": not states, or any level of government.

States have "powers" and the federal government has "enumerated powers" (that means powers limited to those specifically listed in the US Constitution). The government derives their just powers granted to them from the people.

Check your US Constitution, Declaration of Independence, and Federalist Papers, for the facts.
