    That ain't bean bag or any freaking federalist paper opinion piece ---- its the actual official US Constitution telling us why it was written and why it creates a government.
    and the document goes on to list the specific (SPECIFIC) areas where the government was empowered to act

    well for those of us who understand the concept of a limited government--if a power is not specifically given the congress, it doesn't have the proper authority to act

    and just because the left calls handouts "welfare" doesn't mean they are constitutional

    Which section of the Constitution deems that welfare is unconstitutional?

    Newt has the most liberal views on immigration of all the GOP candidates.

    another person who has no clue how things work

    if it was not authorized specifically, it is not constitutional.


    you seem to labor under the statist delusion that everything is legal for the federal government UNLESS it is specifically banned

    That's right. What makes them constitutional is the Supreme Court calling them constitutional.
