    I can point you to the part where it says that Congress can regulate interstate commerce. That's the part.
    "The necessaries of life occasion the great expense of the poor. They find it difficult to get food, and the greater part of their little revenue is spent in getting it. The luxuries and vanities of life occasion the principal expense of the rich, and a magnificent house embellishes and sets off to the best advantage all the other luxuries and vanities which they possess. ... It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion."

    It is too bad there are not more of us. I find myself agreeing with you. If you are right it is the end of America.

    Yeah, most experts would be liberal. It's an IQ thing.

    Further explication by President Obama:
    do you think it is a sign of a responsible court to

    1) follow crappy precedent that completely distorted the obvious meaning of the Commerce Clause

    2) give congress unlimited power to make individuals do whatever congress decrees?
