STATE OF THE UNION ADDRESS
Se denomina State of the Union Address al discurso que el Presidente de Estados Unidos dirige cada mes de enero al Congreso y al pueblo estadounidense, en que muestra su visión de la nación y la economía y explica sus planes para el futuro. Como el discurso recibe una amplia cobertura informativa, el mensaje del Presidente va dirigido no sólo a los parlamentarios sino a todo el país. Esta tradición de dirigirse al Congreso poco después de la vuelta de éste de las vacaciones de Navidad el día 3 de enero se debe a que es un requisito de la Constitución que el Presidente informe al Congreso de vez en cuando sobre the State of the Union.
STATES' RIGHTS
Al hablar de State's Rights los estadounidenses se refieren a los derechos que tienen los estados en relación al gobierno federal, como por ejemplo la capacidad de recaudar impuestos, aprobar leyes o controlar la educación pública. En la Décima Enmienda de la Constitución estadounidense se dice que los poderes que la Constitución no delega a los Estados Unidos "se reservan a cada estado particular o al pueblo", aunque ha habido mucha polémica a la hora de interpretar esta enmienda. Este principio se usó para justificar la secesión de los estados sureños antes de la Guerra Civil y se convirtió en una consigna sureña contra la integración racial durante los años 50. Recientemente esta idea se ha ido extendiendo por todo el país debido a la falta de confianza de la gente en el gobierno federal, que está acaparando cada vez más poderes pero cuyos gastos son también mayores.
