Commerce clause rebut

Please show me the clause anything that "affects" interstate commerce in the Constitution. For that matter, show me the term "interstate commerce". Anyone with a dram of knowledge on the Commerce clause knows that the Framers were placing the ability in Congress to override State passed laws that caused problems for other State, no more no less. Even the text covers the same point. Marshall was an idiot when he stated "among" contemplated more than between. The word among was used because there were more than two state and between is a term limited to two. The Frame's use was merely grammatical, not some sneaky deep meaning term that only judges with tea leaves or crystal balls could see. Marshall was a power hungry freak who did everything he could to raise the level of power the court held. He was pissed because the Court is less powerful than Congress (See Congress' authority to control the courts in Article III).

The claim that the commerce clause covers anything that is transported in cross state lines commerce is a magical and imaginary claim pulled from the darkest recesses of someone's arse. EVERY power in the Constitution is an extremely narrow power explicitly restricted to the exact words.

If this is not a correct reading, explain why Congress' power to coin money did not include the power to set its value and did not include the power to punish counterfeiting.

Explain why the power to declare war did not include the power "to raise armies" or "to provide and maintain a navy" or to spend money for the "common Defence".

The judges DO NOT have a corner on reading the Constitution. Most decisions made are contrary to what the simple text states. Judges have forgotten their place. Their place was stated succinctly by Blackstone:

For, whenever a question arises between the society at large and any magistrate vested with powers originally delegated by that society, it must be decided by the voice of the society itself: there is not upon earth any other tribunal to resort to.

Sir William Blackstone, Blackstone's Commentaries on the Laws of England, Book I, Chp3, pg.205/6

To better understand who's the boss, consider fundamental law theory or the Creator/created relationship. Who is the superior, the Creator or the created? The Creator is superior to the created (creation). Who is/are the Creator of the Constitution? We the People and the Constitution is our creation. Being our creation, the Constitution is subordinate to We the People. The Constitution next creates the government and its branches. Thus the Constitution is superior to each of the branches and every member of those branches. Subordinates do not have the authority to define the superior, i.e. the courts cannot interpret the Constitution. That is one of the first lies we were taught. The Constitution is the written rules that We the People make for those we choose to work for us. We hire them as oru public servants. None of them are our superiors and none of them are our leaders. The use of the term leader is a somewhat modern invention concerning our elected officials. In my childhood, they were ALWAYS referred to as public servants. We the People are the boss. Our rules, the Constitution, are their boss. If an authority or power is not delegated therein, it is retained by the People. Even at the state level, the People have to explicitly transfer authority to the state government through the state constitution.

Men will hold to old truths more readily than they will accept new truths. Get out of your box. Study the original Constitutional writings of Story, Rawle, Cooley, Tucker, etc. What most of us think we know wbout our government and our Constitution are BS invented by a bunch of thugs in black robes.

What we need for a real political party

Honor and Integrity above all else. No pandering. No demagoguery. No buying of votes.

Both of these are lacking in EVERY party and in most people.

Adherence to the law is key, and not just man's law but also God's.

Recognition that the People are sovereign as individuals and that ALL familial, societal, and governmental authority derives its very existence from the consent of each individual.

Recognition that only the People can decide the meaning of the clauses and phrases in all documents that found governmental bodies.

The laws are to be followed as written without manipulation/interpretation as to "just what could they have meant by that". If a law is ambiguous, it must be thrown out, not interpreted to the predilections of the reader. Judges who persist in interpreting laws, including the Constitution shall be removed from office for bad behavior.
