Federalism is a form of government in which the power is derived from the people being governed. Originally, the United States had been governed as a confederation underneath the Articles of Confederation, but shortly switched to the federalist system after the confederation’s failure (O’Connor, Sabato, and Yanus, Ch 3.1). The federal system strengthened the core government, but still continued to respect the rights of the individual states. The foundation of states’ rights come from the people, but are protected within the Tenth Amendment of the Bill of Rights. These powers, which do not belong to the federal government and are not prohibited under the Constitution, are known as reserved powers because they are reserved for the states (O’Connor, Sabato, and Yanus, Ch 3.1). Some examples of the reserved powers of the states include the ability to determine abortion laws as well as criminal punishment.
The regulation of drugs and alcohol have a clear need for national involvement in my opinion. Being bordered by two other countries, the United States is prone to drug smuggling. States that do not approve of the use of specific drugs within its borders need assistance from the national government to ensure that it doesn’t happen. Many drugs are also very harmful to human health. To prevent the spread of it further through the country, federal involvement is needed. The regulation of cigarettes on a federal level is also a necessity. Tobacco products have been shown to have adverse health effects and can affect the people around second-hand smoke. To protect everyone within the country, each state must follow the same guidelines.

Federalism comes from the concept of a federation, a union of different states. While in the US a state is something closer to a province or a prefecture it can also mean a nation. For example, ISIS is called the Islamic state, and the Kurds want their own state. Also the US has been referred to as a union, and uses something called congress instead of parliament. This was deliberate. They intended congress to be something similar to the congress of Vienna which was a meeting of different countries with delegations. This gave states far more power than most countries give their subdivisions and was the Foundation of state rights.
The original articles of confederation were true to this concept but it soon became clear that there was need for a stronger central government. Thus a few rules were established that made it clear that the United States was one nation. One was the supremacy clause which was absolutely needed. Federal law always overrides an individual state’s. Another was the raising of taxes and the forbidding of individual states from making agreements with other countries. Another was the ability to declare war. All these actions would be handled by the federal government and needed to be in order to the US to be one nation. Later there would be an even greater increase of federal power in the New Deal. Now the federal government also needed to provide social security and various other government programs. The federal government was given the responsibility to regulate and even subsidies businesses to keep people employed. Furthermore, the United States was given power not only over itself but the entire world, providing 22% of UN funds and is the primary contributor to NATO.
