6. Would that raise issues regarding what the Constitution means by "The United States shall guarantee
to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government" and of what value are the Ninth and Tenth Amendments?

PA and VT constitutions were written before the Constitution was ratified.

Could the question be restated as "Can state constitutions reserve rights to the people (9th) and power to the people and state (10th) or is the federal government omnipotent?"
