IMHO, the key is the New Deal Commerce Clause and the substantial effects doctrine. Throw those out, and go back to the idea that "to regulate commerce among the several states" meant to simply keep interstate commerce in good working order, and the ones that need to go and the ones that need to stay become apparent.

Excellent point re: abuse of the interstate commerce clause but you neglected the "general welfare" clause.
These two usurpations are the root of most of the problem with the fedgov abusing the Constitution.
