All law is based on someone's morality.
The state govts were left with this power and it was done by the states and local areas for a long time. Libertarianism is not Constitutionalism.
“Experience should teach us to be most on our guard to protect liberty when the Government’s purposes are beneficent. Men born to freedom are naturally alert to repel invasion of their liberty by evil-minded rulers. The greatest dangers to liberty lurk in insidious encroachment by men of zeal, well-meaning but without understanding.” — James Madison
