To start out, I find it mind boggling that you have the concepts on what our government is supposed to do, and what they are not ordered to do through our constitution. An 8th grader through a rudimentary civics course in middle school knows that what you are laying out is a total, and complete revision of the constitution of this country. And regardless of what grade you are now in, either middle, or High School, if I were your parent, there would be a serious conversation with your schools principle as to just what is being taught in your school to have you so far off in understanding the constitution.
First, let's back up a little and go to the part which you said:
I only included this part of your post because the rest is essentially you just claiming that I am committing a logical fallacy, which beside not being correct, calls into question your understanding of what a logical fallacy is. But, it matters because living at home, with mom and dad, having them provide you a roof over your head, pay for your food, pay the utilities, leaves you with NO understanding what it takes to run a household.Why do you believe it matters...
Now, let's take a look at the convoluted understanding you have of the constitution....You said:
and thisBecause our Founding Fathers did not enumerate a warfare-State, but merely, a welfare-State.
and thisProviding for the general welfare implies a welfare State, not a warfare State.
and thisYes, everyone should understand that "promote the general welfare" implies promoting a welfare-State not a warfare-State.
etc. etc.....We are Only to promote the general welfare; not, the common defense.
Let me begin by posting the Opening words of our constitution:
There are 6 things laid out here that our government is tasked to do to secure "the blessings of Liberty, and out Prosperity"....Originally Posted by The United States of America Constitution
1. The government is tasked to form a "more Perfect Union" - Now, what do they mean by that? Without going into a long dissertation on this, it is simple, the Federal government is supposed to oversee a system that doesn't have each state working against each other. So therefore, we have common currency, common trade, and freedom of movement between states, which promotes tourism, among other things...
2. "Establish Justice" - We have that in Article III establishing a court system.
3. "Insure the Domestic Tranquility" - I believe they were talking about not having a government working against the people, or subjecting them to authoritarian style governance.
4. "Provide for the common defense" - This is covered in the enumerated powers, we will cover that shortly.
5. "Promote the general welfare" - This was to be done through the enumerated powers as well...When the founders used phrases like 'promote the general welfare, they never intended it to be receiving the monthly stipend check for assistance, or having the EBT card replenished on the 1st of the month for food allotment. No, they specifically laid out what they meant by promoting the general welfare, and what they were supposed to over see in order to do that:

6. "Secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity" - In order to secure these blessings, we remain a free people, not under the thumb of big government, that is after all what the founders were escaping.
In short Daniel, like I said to open, your understanding of our founding document is so far opposed to the expressed intent of the document as to not at all be what it is...
Current recess GOP talking point--no new jobs.
DEM facts--49 straight months of private sector job growth after the bush swoon .

Oh we're up to 49 months? Nice.
I remember back in the Bush days when Republicans were bragging about 52 consecutive months of job growth. If trends hold for a short while longer, we'll surpass that and then some before the end of this year.
Damn Obama :p
What did we have before those 49 months?
March of 2014 had a +930,000 gain in private sector employment compared to March of 2009.
Only a conservative could argue with that.
Why do GOPs say the interest will be one trillion at the end of the decade as a new recess talking point ?
