GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Hundreds of people rallied in Greenville on Saturday as part of the National Day of Resistance.

The protests are aimed at showcasing what organizers said are signs of an overreaching federal government.

Rally attendees shared their opinions about the status of the government and proposed ways that it could be improved.

"The duties of the federal government are spelled out in the Constitution," said state Rep. Bill Chumley, R-Spartanburg, who attended the rally. "The duties of the states are spelled out in there. All we have to do is follow that, and that's all I'm asking."

"If you look at everything that's being done by our federal government, most of it is overstepping," said Bob Patterson, who also attended the rally.

Among the topics discussed were healthcare, gun rights and home education.

NOTE: Originally this story said that "Dozens of people rallied in Greenville," when in fact there were hundreds. Also, Chumley was not identified as a state representative. We apologize for the errors.
