The commerce clause.....

Modern liberals, through the ill defined 16 words found in the Commerce Clause of the American Bill of Rights, have been able to create a whole brave new Utopian world through this unfortunate crack I the dike of liberty....
Article Section 8, Clause 3:
“ [The Congress shall have Power] To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian tribes;
The idea that the original framers of the constitution thought it was a good idea or intended that the central government had the duty and the right to intervene in private transactions, unless these private transactions were either illegal or infringed upon the rights of others, is silly. An experiment in liberty as the United States was, would never have been intentionally designed to self destruct into a socialist paradigm as we are now experiencing in the US.

As the leviathan in Washington consumes more and more of the American people's life, through seizure of their property gained through their own toil, and the elimination of their ability to make decisions with expect to their own lives, people and good ideas will seek out more accommodative places to carry on their business and their lives.

As the people in China have gained liberty, they have been able to use this freedom to make their lives better in ways that they have decided to do. China unfortunately, , is not a model that will work as vestiges of communism continue to interfere in natural allocation of resources. Resourses continue to be misallocated and in fact, the livathan here has had to double down on its mistakes making the problems worse. However, on the margin, as liberty has been gained, the people have responded by creating.

In my opinion, the United States experiment in liberty is finished unless the peole take the nation back. It will be difficult and their will be winners and losers, however, on the current path, there will only be losers.
