    Yes, they taxed goods, which are totally different from income.

    If you do not find it to be an empowering clause take it up with the courts.

    Or do you not believe in the rule of law?

    you already made that silly point before and it clearly shows you are clueless about constitutional jurisprudence

    educate us as to what university awarded you a degree in law.

    do you even know what an empowering clause is or what the tenth amendment says?

    Voted Yes. Because they are an important tool in improving the economy and unemployment in a hastier manner than can the current proposals of the Administration.

    I've not heard of the term empowering clause, but I would reason that its meaning is similar to an enabling clause that means a provision in a new law that legally enables its creation.

    The tenth amendment, often cited by the Tenthers, that powers not granted to the federal government under the Constitution are held by the states.

    Now, that I have answered your questions, would you answer my question that you have avoided twice now ~

    Do you believe in the rule of law? Do you know what it means?
