10th Amendment == instant dictatorship?

This is a long but interesting piece of history and Constitutional scholarship:

Albert Einstein and Oskar Morgenstern urged Gödel not to mention this fact to the examiner. In fact, they decided to accompany Gödel to his examination in Trenton in order to keep him out of trouble. At the government offices, the examiner congratulated Gödel for leaving Germany, which was under an “evil dictatorship” of a kind that could never occur in the United States. “On the contrary,” Gödel shouted, “I know how that can happen!”
