Federalism began in the United States in 1787 and it has, so far remained a federal government.
Federalism is a political concept in which a group of members are bound together by covenant with a governing representative head. A Federal Government is characterized by the coexistence of two legal systems, a separate international entity which overlaps on individual states where the Federal System serves as a link.

The loyalty of the population and political tradition permits American federalism. The unity of the state, that is to say, the consistency of power is based on the balance of power between the federal executive and the Federated States on one hand and on the other, the identification that links these two parts with each other. However, the construction of a state is not fixed and political doctrines are constantly changing.

In this paper we look at the following titles:

II. Unitary federalism
A. In theory - the protection of federalism by institutions of the government
B. In practice, the decline of the Federated States of localism and broadcasting
