“I cant believe a so called conservative would argue that something is constitutional just because a court hasnt ruled against it.”
Ask DeMint if he thinks drug laws are constitutional lol. I guess he’s not a conservative either.
” Obamacare isnt unconstitutional either I guess, because a Court hasnt ruled against it.”
Reductio absurdum fallacy. Actually, ObamaCare is being challenged by many state Attorney’s General on constitutional grounds...and it’s provisions aren’t even fully enacted yet. This just makes your drug law argument look weaker, since they’ve been enforced and unchallenged for over 80 years lol.
There are 17 specific powers given in Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution. The tenth amendment tells us every other power is reserved to the states. I don’t care what activist judges say, there is no authority for the federal government to do anything outside those 17 areas except for the few areas the Constitution was amended to allow.
Any “conservative” who says otherwise, is not a conservative in the traditional sense. Such a person might pay lip service to “Strict Constructionist” or “Original Intent” but doesn’t consistently apply that principle to big government he supports.
