Yes, A Wickard Poll
Soemtimes I feel like I am talking to myself when I write these posts - like all of my effort in laser siting the exact moment when the Supreme Court turned bad will be lost on the ages. For example, in the Supreme Theft of Liberty pieces, I have said, "Judicial tests, I have argued before, have so misshapen commerce power that the Wickard v. Filburn court found Congress can regulate your family garden, the same 1930's policy Stalin used against the Kulaks."
Then I see strange stories like this, where a Rasmussen poll finds that only 7% of Americans support Wickard v. Filburn. I am astounded. There is even a Wickard cat. I really like the piece of straw in his teeth - even though I don't like cats.
So I am carrying parts 4 and 5 of the Supreme Theft of Liberty around in my mind, and I am playing with the idea that at the end, to get back to a government of limited and enumerated power, I will conclude we should sell the air.
