This is the blueprint, people!  This is the reason for the new nation that had broken away from the bonds of England and the specification  for that new form of government, including those areas where government has no "say". 






The Declaration of Independence declared to the world why the people of America had decided to form their own sovereign nation.

The Constitution explained what form the new government would take.

The Bill of Rights drew explicit limits on government, in case future leaders failed to understand what powers WERE granted to government or should said leaders become corrupt and begin to assume powers that infringed on individual rights...

These documents then form the basis of the type of government we know as a Republic, the American Way.
