The Commerce Clause was intended as a negative and preventative provision against injustice amongst the States themselves, rather than as a power to be used for the positive purposes of the General Government.
“America needs a breakout movement, a new politics that is less about the Right versus the Left than about the future versus the past. It will require a new political language, new coalitions of pioneers and champions who understand the importance of breaking out, and new assertiveness in exposing the prison guards of the past.”

Hank has never released his birth certificate, his tax returns, and has never responded to allegations of catnip use. He says he’s gone to the vet, but there is no record of him serving in any military branch. Would Hank force females to undergo an ultrasound before being spayed? And should a Maine Coon really be running for Senate in Virginia?
If this doesn’t make you angry, it should. The primary Constitutional obligation of both houses of Congress is to legislate. The Senate is knowingly and willingly ignoring this obligation because they’re too busy playing politics to take their responsibility seriously.
It was refreshing to see one of our Representatives, Congressman Young of Indiana, focusing on solutions to our problems instead of just demonizing others.
