And I don’t have a problem with states charging fees for interstate commerce.

It doesn’t matter if you have a problem or not, it is unconstitutional.

That fee is a tax on trade it is prohibited by Article 1 Section 10 of the Constitution.

I’m sorry that you didn’t understand the gist of the article.
The students were asked to make changes to the Bill of Rights.

I expanded it to make changes that I’d like to see in the Constitution and all the amendments. Some in a humorous vein.

I don’t like the commerce clause, because the EPA uses it to call a trickle in your back yard a navigable river. The gov’t has a say in what you grow in your backyard. I believe the commerce clause has served its usefulness, and natural unimpeded competition will take care of any tariff and tax wars between the states.

I just want the federal government out of my backyard.
