The Interstate Commerce Clause And You

Considering that under Obamacare, Congress has asserted that the Interstate Commerce Clause of the Constitution should be interpreted so broadly as to allow Congress the power to require you to engage in commerce, the question arises:  What isn’t “interstate commerce”?  Is there any area of your life that Congress can’t regulate?

So under present Court precedent and legal doctrine, the Constitution consists of five words: Congress shall have the power. That’s it. That’s all there is. It is difficult to imagine anything further from the intent of the Framers.

It amazes me that we have reached such a low point in American history.  How could we have ceded so much of our liberty to our supposedly “limited” government?  Never before have I been so anxious about the state of the nation and the future of liberty.  I hope and pray that the people still have it within them to rise up and rekindle the spirit of the founding of this country.
