    You'd have a point if anyone had made that latter argument.

    That's the beauty of a democratic republic. There will be no application of it as long as we have a politically plural constituency. Extreme liberalism won't ever overpower extreme conservativism and vice versa. My comment was simply speaking to the ideology. While we don't experience it in our government, we do see it in the pie in the sky fantasies that are uttered by those who subscribe to those extreme beliefs.

    That's exactly the argument you've been making. The Constitution is absolutely clear regarding what powers the federal government has, and the Tenth Amendment is absolutely clear that the federal government is not to claim or exercise any power that the Constitution has not delegated to it.

    Your entire argument has been to claim, on behalf of the federal government, a power that the Constitution does not delegate to it, and to defend the federal government's abuse of this power.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    No, it is not "exactly the argument" I've been making. It is a spin of the argument I have been making born of sophistry.
