    For those who have an interest there is quite a bit of material available to discern the intended nature of the Constitution. But one must actually want to seek the truth.

    I guess I had forgotten what it's like to deal with a prima donna. Sorry, your honor, let's discuss this "lawless regime" some more. LOL

    Real quick, here are a few limitations to the federal government:

    1) The federal government keeps itself in check via the three branches:
    a) Executive
    b) Legislative
    c) Judicial

    2) The states keep the federal government in check by literally comprising it.

    3) The federal government is also kept in check by the Bill of Rights, which is legislation about things it can and cannot do. For instance, your ability to make crazy ramblings about it being total chaos is protected - your welcome. The Founding Fathers are nodding at you from Heaven, while simultaneous shaking a fist at you and Conservative for deciding their opinions on current issues.

    Hopefully you already knew this ****, because it's from about 3rd grade.

    Please, enlighten us on it. Show us how the Founding Fathers were against the idea of nationalized health care - a topic that couldn't have crossed their minds because it didn't exist yet.

    A franchise is a mom and pop operation.

    What is wrong with using low wage workers?
    Often, but Walmart isn't. And they use mom and pops who use illegals, they likely know what they are doing. As do others.

    Who are they? They contracted with another company and you blame Wal-Mart and other companies for that? You have nothing but keep reaching. Gruber nailed it

    When I was in the third grade much of this was still true. The states have not had a role since they lost their power over their senators.

    I am surprised you failed to mention that the entire Constitution is written to limit the federal government. That too, is from the third grade.

    Now do the second half of the assignment. You have given the textbook answer, partially. How does it compare to today?

    It is very clear that the federal government was not granted the authority to legislate in the healthcare arena. They states may do so if they choose but the federal government has no Constitutional authority to act. They are tyrannical.

    And, as you mentioned, this is grade school level stuff.
