Which article of the constitution makes the federal government the most powerful?

WHOA! The Federal government is not the most powerful. The people through their State governments have the most power! The Federal government can only do what the States let them do in the US Constitution. The Federal government cannot make any of the States do anything, save for paying taxes, serving in the military, play nice with other States and countries as far as trade goes, have a postal service, coin money, make citizens of immigrants, and to define piracy and provide for punishment of pirates, and enacting laws to make these duties happen. Sadly, President Obama often breaks these rules and should be legally impeached and convicted, but the current Congress is too weak and afraid to do that. Also, sadly, the States have come to depend on Federal money for large parts of their budgets. The Federal government can legally say, "If you States don't do what we want, you will lose your Federal money." In some locations of the country, that is called, "Dirty pool".
