The commerce clause is limited to interstate commerce, not intrastate commerce. The clause is limited to the making the flow of goods between the states flow uninterrupted.

If anyone can produce and iota of historical evidence to the contrary, that would be great.

I think it is fantastic when someone cites Posner regarding the Constitution. It is fantastic because they have no idea how abhorred and unhinged Posner became before leaving the judiciary.

on the contrary, you talk about the constitution as if it were written in stone it is a lving socument if it were meant to be wriiten in stone there would never have been a method of amendment and lets face it that has been in there since the beginning so you are wrong.. the founders knew things would change and the meaning of the document would change other wis how could you amend it.. you can amend the bible can you? all you can do with that piece of porn is burn it
The amendment process is specified.

The Constitution is a static document, and was written and intended to be a static document. The Article V amendment process is only intended to make technical corrections.

If anyone wants to bring up the Supreme Court, they will need to provide the constitutional basis for any of their opinions.
There's a good sense rationale for the Supreme Court. Quite simply, without a court of no appeal, a rogue president/Congress would be a real danger.

If the Founders didn't intend there to be a court of no appeal, they made a mistake. They were only fallible humans, after all.
