Every TEA Party group— ought subscribe and study and debate this Federal Convention post— until we understand it well enough to debate it with any mere politician. Methinks they have gotten too comfortable in their reliance of the distilled
enumerated powers -they focus it seems most upon the “necessary and proper clause.And to this poor citizen that suggests ,as with too much focus on any distilled spirit—
one nasty hangover is to be expected.

Well, on the bright side, there seems to be a reawakening, a renewal of sorts going on as reflected by the Tea Party movement. Along with that you have threads like this one. There is so much primary source material available at no cost, there is little excuse to talk nonsense about our Constitution.

Reasonable people may differ over what constitutes necessary and proper laws to carry into execution the enumerated powers. But, what burns me for instance was Obama lawyers arguing that the individual mandate was necessary and proper to implement Obamacare. Huh?
