You're waiting for something already answered. My feelings on the subject have little bearing on the facts of the situation.
I pointed you in the right direction. In the end it is up to neither of us. Ask the supreme court or research that case and ruling. I won't do work
for you. Like I said, regardless of whether or not I agree with the ruling, it's law now.
Edit: A good example of what I'm getting at. The affordable care act. I can't find anywhere in the constitution where it says the government has
the authority to coerce me to buy a product or service in any way shape or form. But we have a supreme court who somehow ruled it constitutional,
after explicitly saying in no uncertain terms that the govt doesn't have that authority... odd eh?
One more edit: The constitution, as a contract by which the states are members of the union,is kind of like the rules of a board game. The rules say
what you can do, not what you can't. If it doesn't say you can, then you expressly cannot. The US government has betrayed the constitution by pretty
much saying "well it doesn't say we can't, so we will".
