I read it plenty of times and I don't make ridiculous claims like you. Since you made the claims, the burden of proof is on you. So please provide evidence that they used the "interstate commerce clause" to expand the government. Without evidence, this is a lie.
One small example.
You may have heard of this: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
The government directly violates this principle every single day. Some examples include: the federal department of education and their use of federal highway funds to bully states into making policy decisions. If you dont understand that, im sorry, but i dont have time to teach you the history of our constitution and the development of American domestic policy. For starters, go read the federalist papers and the journals written by some of the framers of the constitution and the founders of our country.
More like, we don't even rank in the top 100. Probably not even in the top 500 when it comes to Poli Sci. You and I both know that.
I understand that. But the national rank of LSU's poli sci department has no bearing on my ability to critique the government or understand the constitution, or come to my own conclusions about the federal government.
I didn't mean that as an insult.
You most certainly did and now you are going back on yourself because i didnt bite and lower myself to your level.
The lack of your qualifications along with your extreme opinions allow me to dismiss your views.
My opinions aren't extreme and you are dismissing my views because you are either incapable of having an honest discussion about the history of our government and the purpose behind the constitution or you are simply trolling and refuse to accept anything i say.
Again, you are the one making ridiculous claims so the burden of proof is on you. It is your job to make it impossible for me to dismiss your opinion, otherwise it is just an opinion and most likely not true.
I could easily claim the sky is green, but unless I present evidence. It's not true.
So where's your evidence? I don't see any.
It takes a few years of college and a few specified semesters in American Government to fully understand and debate these issues. I dont have the time or the will to teach you about these things over a message board.
