Economic Liberty and The Constitution Blog Series: #2 - Unbridled Expansion of the Commerce Clause

The Commerce Clause is an enumerated power found in Article 1 section 8 of the Constitution and was a means of separating power from the President, but through the years Congress and the courts have manipulated the intention of the Commerce Clause. The Founding Fathers feared too much power being in the hands of any one branch of the government and were determined to prevent our elected officials from becoming a ruling class.

EPA attacks on the States

Under a new plan from the Environment Protection Agency, States could face up to $90 billion in costs. The new EPA National Health Based Standards for Ozone would take the current levels of 75 Parts Per Billion (PPB) of Ozone and lower it to a level of 60 to 70 PPB. By increasing the strict level of PPB numerous new counties would faces fines for not being up to code. As many as 650 counties from across the United States would face these fines if the new laws are enacted. To put that into perspective roughly 21% of the counties nation-wide would not be up to code.

Capitol Comment

End of the Line

Behind the scenes, while Washington and the United States focus on the debt crisis, President Obama’s EPA has been quietly implementing one of the most radical and costly policies of his administration. Ever since the failure of cap-and-trade, the administration has turned to the EPA to carry out its radical environmental agenda.

Reining in the Regulators

Article 1 Section 1 of the United States Constitution reads, “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.” Legislative power, of course, is the authority to create the laws and rules which govern the nation. The Constitutional framers wisely restricted that authority to an elected legislature. Unfortunately today the majority of America’s rules are created not by Congress, but by unelected bureaucrats.

When Life Gives You Lemons, The Government Gives You a Fine

The American dream, what does this mean?  For most it means that if a person works hard they too can make it rich here in America.  It is the pursuit of this dream that has brought our forefathers to this great nation, and it is the job of every American parent to instill this into the minds of their children.  Some parents try to do this by either allowing their childr
