    It was always there in the Constitution. And the courts interpret what is meant by the powers granted. This is our system.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    that's pretty silly. I know that FDR made that power up but no one can honestly state that the founders intended or even imagined some scum bag would say that the commerce clause had anything to do with retail firearms sales etc

    the anti gun left would have so much more credibility if they would admit that the founders never put such powers in the constitution nor intended such powers ever exist, but rather concede that FDR made it up and a cowardly and pussy-whipped bunch of turkeys on the courts allowed that blatantly unconstitutional expansion of the CC and corresponding rape of the 10A to stand

    the founders granted no powers to congress into the life's liberty and property of the people, all powers of article 1 section 8 are general powers, which are to be used on the union [50 states], not people.

    congress, the presidency is corrupt.......are the courts any different.

    Only if you assume they never change, never react to new information, never grow. That's the only way you can fix them to such a position. But, our system was set up so that the courts ruled on what was and what wasn't constitutional. That's the system.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    That's you're interpretation and not the courts. In our system, the courts is the one that matters.

    Wednesday the fourth of March, one thousand seven hundred and eighty nine.

    THE Conventions of a number of the States, having at the time of their adopting the Constitution, expressed a desire, in order to prevent misconstruction or abuse of its powers, that further declaratory and restrictive clauses should be added: And as extending the ground of public confidence in the Government, will best ensure the beneficent ends of its institution.
