    if the federal government have been delegated a power to regulate business and people, then that would allow the federal government to be directly involved in the personal lifes of the people...........they didn't grant that power to the federal government, that remained a power of the states.
    You seem to not want any flexibility, you do not deny that states doing it would be worse either. Hm.

    states regulated their own commerce until 1942..

    the federal government was granted the power of regulation inside of state by the USSC, because a man wanted to grow his own wheat to feed to his own cattle. and the government did not want him to, they wanted him to buy the wheat on the open market........funny how the USSC court can use this as a way of thinking to take over commerce.

    no.... they are not doing a fantastic job, because since they were allowed to do it they have been violating rights of the people.

    the founders did not grant the federal government powers into the personal lifes of the people, and because they didn't, ..it would make it impossible to violate the rights of the people by the federal government...which is both mansion and Hamilton's argument.

    I was talking about the states. Regulation and intervention isn't bad, every other country does it.

Look at the manufactured slums you progressives have produced and how hard you've made it for people to get out of them by siding with teacher's unions against vouchers. There's a huge difference between providing well intentioned programs and providing real help.

    Regulated capitalism leads to crony capitalism. Without the the ability of our representative to legislate favoritism there would be no crony capitalism.

    And its ludicrous to suggest that capitalists don't care about other human beings. Your brand of socialism seems to be born of hate.

    Hoover's policies didn't work over a period of three years. FDR's policies didn't work over a period of nine years. Obama's polices haven't worked over a period of seven years.

    I think the government itself doesn't like the middle class. They only want poor people to take care of and rich people to pay them. As for people themselves who are republican, yes they do care.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    We have that system in the Post Office, Medicare/Medicaid, Social Security, The VA... One problem with socialism is that the cooperative management has learned that if they vote to limit benefits to what we can afford or raise taxes enough to pay for programs they get voted out of office. So it never works or will work unless or until those in authority are not beholden to the people. The examples of how well that has worked out include China, Russia, Cuba...
