Jefferson wrote in the Kentucky Resolves that the Union was a compact among States. The general government exists for express and delegated purposes only. Jefferson quotes the Tenth Amendment, saying that States are equal judges with the federal government on questions of Constitutionality. Jefferson writes further that "whensoever the general government assumes undelegated powers, its acts are unauthoritative, void, and of no force." Jefferson equates the Constitution with an "attachment...to limited government" and says that successive acts of tyranny ought to drive the States into "revolution and blood."
