"So, Russ, in your view, is the federal government permitted to regulate anything not mentioned in the Constitution?"
Actually, my view is the opposite. I also believe the Commerce Clause is interpreted far too liberally. I believe it is folly to attempt to prohibit that which cannot be prohibited.
I don't use intoxicants at all, but I am not allowed to purchase effective cold medication without ID because some politician wants to be seen as 'doing something' about drugs. Has meth production or sale slowed down at all?
I can't believe anyone calling themselves conservative could be OK with civil forfeiture.
I don't think small towns and cities need their own SWAT teams.
