THE FEDERAL SYSTEM

It holds our country together

WHAT IS IT?

The federal system is a system that divides power between the national and state government.

HOW DOES IT WORK

The national government is assigned certain delegated powers, and there are also reserved powers which belong to the state governments.

WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?

The federal system recognizes states rights and makes a strong central government without giving it too much power. So the federal system is a "win win".
