    Backtracking as usual I see. First you claim that businesses are moving to Texas because of cheap illegal immigrant labor, then when shown that the state they are moving FROM has MORE illegal immigrants, you try to change the subject.

    Typical.

    Pssst........... Federal Unemployment tax (FUTA) is paid by the employer, NOT the employee.

    The only two federal payroll taxes that employees pay are FICA and Medicare.

    True, the employer writes the check, but ultimately it is the employees who pay the tab in the form of lower compensation.

    Really?? Does the employee also get a lower compensation because of the companies corporate income tax payment ???

    Have you ever signed the front of a payroll check in your life ???? Never mind, I already know the answer.

    It i worse than that. For our opponents on the other side the entire Constitution consists of the power to tax, to make laws, to provide for the general welfare, and the first amendment.

    You are unlearned and clueless on this subject
    If the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence have any meaning or power at all then the people cede a portion of their sovereignty to the state. We can always choose the option of another revolution. And perhaps we will.

    Yeah? What about it? Do you believe Article I grants unlimited, tyrannical powers to the Federal government? If so, why?

In that case, the commerce clause is where they come from. Without the commerce clause, there could be no EPA. But something like the department of Education has no power. It can't tell anybody to do anything. So they don't need any powers beyond spending.
    You are not alone in thinking that the Commerce clause gives the government unlimited power. It is a shame. I believe it means the eventual demise of the United States. I wonder what will come next.

    Or, if you are not in approval of that arrangement, you can exercise your ultimate right of free choice and do what the Pilgrims did four centuries ago.
