    The resolutions argued that because the federal government was the outcome of a compact between the states, all powers not specifically granted to the central authority were retained by the individual states or by the people. For this reason, it followed that the states, or the people, were the true holders of political power not the federal authority, and this encouraged a looser view of the constitution.
