Is there no limit to Congress’s power? - The Washington Post

This might galvanize a Supreme Court majority to say “Enough!” and begin protecting individual liberty from a Commerce Clause that the court itself has transmogrified into an anti-constitutional gift to Congress of a virtually unlimited police power. This case can begin restoring Madison’s constitutional architecture for a government limited by the enumeration of its powers.
Hopefully the Supreme Court will start considering individual liberty as being sacrosanct and not the powers of the central government. Every power gained by the leviathan reduces individual liberty by an equal amount. One day we will wake up and realize that we are no longer a free people but serfs to the central authority.
