1. Introduction

The Bill of Rights is made up of ten Amendments that were created by James Madison to protect the people from an intrusive government. James Madison was one to propose the document and was a political theorist and the fourth president of the United States. The Bill of Rights was created September 25, 1789 but wasn’t officially ratified until December 15, 1791. It is a treasured document that holds the rights of the American people. The Constitution did not really protect the civil rights of the people and so James Madison invented the Bill of Rights.

One out of the ten amendments that stood out was the Tenth Amendment which states “Rights not labeled under the federal government belong to the state governments or the people. In other words, that any power that is not given to the government is either given to the people or the states.” This amendment is an important aspect to the constitution in some cases because the government can be overpowering and if we were to let the government decide our choices, we would not receive the freedom we deserve. The founding fathers believed that there was an issue regarding power with the federal and state government. “ The Tenth Amendment was added to the Constitution of 1787 largely because of the intellectual influence and personal persistence of the Anti-Federalists and their allies.”
