The Power Rests With The People

A footnote attached to the report by the Homeland Security Office of Intelligence and Analysis defines "rightwing extremism in the United States" as including not just racist or hate groups, but also groups that reject federal authority in favor of state or local authority.
"It may include groups and individuals that are dedicated to a single-issue, such as opposition to abortion or immigration," the warning says.

Our federal government has forgotten who wields the power in America. The people have the power. Some of that power is delegated to the states. Federal power is granted by the people and the states to the federal government. The Constitution is not a document granting unlimited power to the federal government, but a document that severely limits its power. The federal government has far exceeded that which has been granted by the Constitution, the states, the people and the wildest imaginations of our founding fathers.
