“Justice Thomas: the whole line of ‘commerce clause’ cases granted too much power to the federal government” — Clearly Thinking
My reply echoed here:
As long as vague language is allowed in law (and too many “citizens” could not care less about law), there will be opportunities for abusive judicial interpretation (and harshly weedy growth via legal precedence).
The Commerce Clause epitomizes that problem, and millions (if not billions) of non-violent (i.e. sanely innocent) drug users (and their loved ones) have suffered, despite the unalienable right to liberty (and amendment nine clearly judicially enforcing that right).
The Commerce Clause is also the basis for most (if not all) “liberalism” and “progressivism” involving deep government interference in economic affairs, so do not expect traditional leftists to help close this hideous loophole.
Our nation sadly cannot reconcile the conflict between rights and powers in a purely logical (so fair, so just) way.
For example, compare the ninth amendment (a catchall amendment involving rights) with the tenth amendment (a catchall amendment involving powers).
The (totally ignored) fact is a right without power is not really a right.
The Commerce Clause vaguely grants the power “To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes”.
Our Supreme Court has blatantly (i.e. in the public record) illegally redefined that clause to regulate any activity having a substantial effect on commerce.
That illegality has even been monstrously judicially stretched to ban (not regulate) the mere possession of a plant.
What nobody else is talking about is the fact that your thought activity (which literally determines all of your buying and selling decisions) always has a substantial effect on commerce — and technology is rapidly advancing that allows for thought control.
Based upon that judicial illegality that has been entrenched for several decades and strongly counting (starting from the New Deal), Congress has authority to regulate your thoughts in the “land of the free”.
Our nation is rampantly unlawful and out of control — largely due to rampant hypocrisy leveraged as a weapon to advance selfish agendas “to protect the children”.
According to our national declaration, our nation was violently established against law abuse (logically the worst form of abuse due to its mainly broad scope of destruction).
Instead of righteously building our nation upon primarily opposing law abuse, our nation embraces law abuse and disguises it as justice.
The only rational way to end the cycle of oppression via abusive law is objective language (i.e. pure certainty) in law, which is why I call myself a scientific constitutionalist — and why I wrote (and continue refining) my Liberty Shield informational roots (libertyshield.us) to bring reality to this fundamental area of society.
Liberty Shield fully logically unites the positive intentions of genuine liberals/progressives, American (not pre-American) conservatives, and libertarians.
Liberty Shield can either be leveraged to create an actual justice system (not the agenda system in place now) to save our nation, or it forms the basis for the next wave of revolutionaries refusing to allow reason abusers and thugs to (again) selfishly run society into ruin.
