Well put  !  And along the lines of what to do to counter the problem there is something very powerful regarding the issue of the 16th Amendment, which is why I recommend researching the site called "Lost Horizons.com" for ALL the confirming proofs of the correct understanding of the Income Tax ! It ALL boils down to a Federal tax on Federal income ie. Federal "activities" involving the Federal government producing Federal Income ! A State tax is assessed on State government "activities" creating / producing income and finally a Local ( County or City) tax is assessed on Local government "activities" creating / producing income !  All  the activities producing income must be from "activities" involving the governments / of their "jurisdiction " ( subject matter ) ! In other words what is received as income from "activities" involving the government is  "Priviledged" income from that which is "Priviledge", and is within their "Jurisdiction" ( subject matter ),  therefore proper to tax as a "Priviledge" ( Priviledged Income ) from "Priviledged activity" involving the government . All taxes are indirect to the Individual Natural Person / Citizen since there CANNOT BE a "Direct Tax" on the Individual Natural Person / Citizen ! The 16th Amendment only reasserted Congress' Constitutional privliedge to tax "Indirectly", and  QUALIFIED THAT WHICH IS "PRIVILEDGED ACTIVITY" to be properly taxable as "INCOME" by government , since government connected "activity" falls within it's subject matter "jurisdiction", reach , to tax ! Priviledges are proper to tax , Never RIGHTS ! The "Priviledges" to be taxed must be of their "Jurisdiction" to be taxable by them . Jurisdiction is the KEY ! ALL Government "Activity" is "Priviledge" ! ALL "Private" Sector activity is area of Right ! It is essentially a "Civil Service" income tax  , along with a tax on "Activities" that produce income ( gain , profit ) because they involve / are from government connected "activitiy" of the government's "jurisdiction" . Go to  LOST HORIZONS.COM  for more on the subject !

 @PatrickRohrbach Agreed ! And ALL public "employees"  must pass a civics / citizensjhip test that is based on a comprehensive and accurate knowledge of the Fundamental LAW and Founding Principles upon which this great republic was founded ! Then and ONLY then will they be qualified to run / serve in the public trust !  This was the  intended idea of the original Constitutional requirement that Congressional "Electors" be chosen from and by the States and the States' representatives ( to perpetuate a sound sense of purpose , knowledge and fidelity to the original Principles upon which this Country was founded ) so that our "representatives' would be qualified and know just how to properly serve us as OUR "representatives" ( This is why we must repeal the 17th Amendment ! Or just ACT on the fact that the 17th Amendment is NOT Legitimate / Lawful since it does NOT comply with the requirement that ALL Laws / Treaties etc. MUST BE IN PURSUANCE OF the Constitution ) . And If they did'nt then they were to be snatched back out of office with extereme prejudice and forbidden to serve in the public trust ever again !  And if they committed treason ,  rescind their Citizenship and/or punish them in central square for their treasonous acts !  And if they are guilty of financial crimes then ALL their assets are extracted from their estates !  No Acts , or even the appearance of infidelity and / or lack of Integrity / patronage to this "Republic" was to be tolerated , AT ALL !  This was the idea behind, and intended purpose for, the ratification of the original 13th Amendment !  Yes , This WAS ratified and must be reasserted ! Just ENFORCE THE ORIGINAL CONSTITUTION AND IT'S LAWS AS WRITTEN , THEN  ALL WILL BE IN THEIR PROPER  ORDER and JUST PERSPECTIVE !

 @AnthonyJamesPalumbo   Commentary such as yours  is completely OUT OF CONTEXT with the prevailing UNDERSTANDING and ACCEPTANCE of what constituted COMMON LAW RIGHT even before settling of the New World by a few hundered years and even today still !  The preamble to the Bill of Rights refers to the general government because it is addressing the idea of general government !  The Bill of Rights already existed before the creation of the US Constitution and was derived from the States constitutions as the model to be re-inforced as such as ALREADY applied to the STATE GOV'TS ( and by extension applies to all gov't ) and  is intended to prevent misinterpretation of fundamental inherent Common Law truths long since acccepted as self evident , and established / accepted as such by the English Bill of Rights and the Magna Carta , etc. ... continuing on through today !  Your reply suggests you have NOT gone back far enough in your research ( hence the missing sense of perspective )  to come up with the correct conclusion . Quite frankly many of the early statesmen and judges still had a hard time finally sorting out these issues ( as you mentioned , even James Madison came around to Jeffersonian perspective )  . This conclusion of what is the "right / correct " understanding / interpretation / meaning is proven by the fact that all correct interpretation / understanding / meaning always re-proves (  is in accord with ) the other parts of the whole and does NOT conflict with any other parts of the whole of the US Constitution, or the Constitutions of the States of America . This is the key to KNOWING the correct understanding / meaning / interpretation / intent of the documents ; that is  ... they are based on the "absolute" LOGIC of never conflicting with any other part of the documents ( they are in absolute accord with each other since they are unified in the same "intentended"  meaning ) thus giving it the condition of resolving all matters of "State" and "Society" , and the relationship between the two ! See "Abel Upshure's" work entitled " A brief Enquiry into the True Nature and Character of the Federal Government " to re-educate yourself with the correct understanding and intended purpose of the US Constitution . Also when you state that the second ammendment "only" applies to the federal government I can't help but ask you ; What part of the the US Constitution IS the "Supreme Law" of the Land , do You NOT get ? Also when it declares that ALL Government and Public figures and Judges and Laws / Legislation , Treaties , Executive Orders , ie. "everything" , ... MUST comply with the US Constitution ... or be deemed "Unconstitutional" !

Yes ! And conversely it can be shown by the US Constitution and reason / logic that the ONLY powers allowed / granted to the Federal government / Congress concerning any activity of Common Defense and / or the general Welfare  is "specifically enumerated" and "limited" to those in Art. I sec. 8 . No other powers concerning these two "general" topics / catagories belong to Congress /  the Federal government ... period ! These two topics / catagories of "general" and "common" interest are NOT powers in and of themselves ( as explained by Madison , by reason and logic , and others ... both Federalists and Anti-Federalists , in debate ) but areas / topics / catagories to be dealt with by the "specifically enumerated" powers ... otherwise what would be the point of "specifically enumerating" powers if the "general" and "common" topics are to be interpreted as "powers" of their own thereby negating the point of enumerating specific powers , which would NOT "limit" government ! ?

Read it again , Bill . I said William Wallace "fought" for Rights , because He knew they were inherent ! The Rights became acknowledged as the "English Bill of Rights" .  Try to leave out your desparate storyline while reading comments of others and you will get better results in understanding what is said . Without acknowledgement of Universal Rights of Man ... YOU are just a "bug" to be squashed by someone with malice towards you , hence the point and purpose of a government to provide some protections / repercussions in the event of this horrible , horrible , event . Government is simply a mutual accord to create a larger entity as a deterent against such actions , to provide a greater level / sense of security of our inherent Rights . Comprende ?

All Gov't is created by the consent of  " Sovereign Individuals" , to serve the People ( Individual Sovereigns ) by "Protecting / Securing" the "Rights of  Individuals" , NEVER to take away Individual Rights except in restoration of Rights lost to the injured  .  Our "Inherent" Rights are from our Creator , based on  "Natural Law" / "Law of Nature" , Logic and Reason , and  "Common Law"  stemming from the English Bill of Rights of 1066 fought for by  William Wallace  and the Magna Carta of 1215  fought for by the English Baronage and still our Common Law to this day !  These are the "other" Rights referred to by the 9th Article of the Bil of Rights INCLUDED as original to the Constitution !The US Constitution IS  "Common Law" and superior to ALL other LAW as regards Individual Rights of Individual Sovereigns !  The Constitution ... All Constitutions are to to LIMIT Gov't to the role of serving the Individuals of society in securing their individual Sovereignty / Rights and NOT allow it to abuse that "priviledged" service !

 @LloydThomasSloan   You're wrong Lloyd ! The  9th and10th ammendments include ALL Common Law preceding and leading up to the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of these united States of America , and from which  the Bill of Rights is derived !  You misstate on several points ! First , you state that we are dealing with a "broken" Constitution ? ! There is NO such thing , ONLY "non-compliance" with it !  Second , Secession and nullification are NOT theories , they are Acts / Actions ! Third , these Acts / Actions are NOT Ammendments nor follow any Constitutional procedure since they have "pre-eminent" status to the Constitution  since  Peoples / Townships / Colonies / Counties / States / Nations were Sovereign before they agreed/ decided to unite by Compact , and are of the many "rights"  included by 9th and 10th Ammendments  that "precede" the founding of America .  It is "Fundamental" logic and reason that proves that Secession and Nullification are "Inherent" RIGHTS of Any and All Sovereigns !  Fourth , the Declaration of Independence , the  Constitution of these united States of America and the Bill of Rights are formulated IDEAS set on parchment to provide , preserve , protect ( ie. to Guarantee ) Freedom , Liberty , Sovereignty and the pursuit of Happiness ;  thus are NOT to be usurped / revised / repealed , but can be pursued further with additions / ammendments in pursuance of the "intended meaning" of the Declaration of Independence !  Fifth , the Constitution Delegates certain LIMITED powers to government and PROHIBITS the abuse of the Sovereigns / Rights by government . Government  / the Constitution does NOT have authority over Rights !

 @JamesP.Delaney  @LloydThomasSloan  @FL10thAmendment Well put James . AND ...  We must STOP acting as if permission is needed from Congress or the Federal Gov't , in matters NOT of their given "Specifically Enumerated Powers",  and matters of Constitutional misconstruction / misinterpretation by them . Afterall they are to serve the States ( hence the People ) in ALL matters / concerns , NOT the other way around  since the Sovereign States / Sovereign Citizens have "Sovereign pre-eminence" !  This false / incorrect perspective that the Congress / Federal Gov't runs the country  is "Driven" by  the Federal  Government funding / doling out "ill-gotten" funds ( based on "unrealized gain" / MONETIZED money)  to the States / Citizens  thereby infusing "easy money" into the money supply engendering overspending and extorting compliance by setting them up to be needy of / addicted to  the Congress / Federal Gov't and it's flow of  FIAT  money !  These loans are beyond the ability to realize enough ROI / gain to pay down / pay back due to irresponsible stewardship by our representatives and are  ultimately for "political" favor in return / increased control !  This Unconstitutional  misappropriation of funds , "pork barrel" legislation , and irrational borrowing from the Federal Reserve defies sound money practices and responsible budgetary control , which  causes "Odious Debt" !   These are their crimes against humanity !  Now , the States must Stop borrowing / demanding from Congress / the Federal Gov't  ( beyond their ability to realize enough gain / ROI to pay down / pay back the debts in a much more "practical" timeframe )  to get their budgets back to "real time" affordability practices !  The People must Stop asking / demanding from Gov't that which they are NOT supposed to demand / request ( misappropriation of funds ) and / or can't afford ( realize an ROI in a "practical" timeframe ) also !   In other words we  must get back to a "Cash & Carry" budgetary plan  to rid ourselves of this debt burden lifestyle / practice AND Prosecute ALL those involved in the creation of this massive   (unconstitutional) amount of "ODIOUS DEBT" !  In light of these events / conditions ,  does anyone really doubt that "Nullification" is justified / proper / Constitutional ? ! ...

 @picnicphones  @JamesP.Delaney  Such is the Plight of Liberty and Freedom we ALL must contend with in our pursuence of happiness !  Ask yourself if the SCOTUS opinion is being recognized properly for what it ultimately DOES / CAN  mean vs. what it is being "interpreted" to mean ( this is in regard to what is referred to as the "Sophistry" of the Courts / Law makers ) , and if the Defendant /

Plaintiff  is even making  their  "CASE"  based on the correct / most poignant perspective / incisive lawful basis . This is the very reason for why much more study / research is required / necessary !  The "Case" must be such that it pierces through the veil of secrecy / confusion / occlusion of the MOST IMPORTANT and  IDEAL BASIS  for ALL  "JUST" LAW , in a FREE "Society" where ALL men are declared to be equal in the eyes of the Law , that is ... the "sanctity" of  "Individual Citizen Sovereignty"  MUST BE PRESERVED , or ALL IS FOR NAUGHT ! Hence , the choice of a "REPUBLIC" as the "Style" of American governance ( NOT a  "Democracy" ) and  "Guaranteed" by OUR Constitution throughout the land based on THE RULE OF LAW , so that the "Individual" is protected in their state of "Sovereignty" !  As Patrick Henry put it best  " ...

 @picnicphones Sorry if my reply verges on hostility , it is really more of frustration since the answer to your suggested point is very involved .  Your question indicates so little knowledge of Constitutional fundamentals , which even seasoned conservatives convolute and mistake for correct understanding as revealed here in this forum , so you're NOT alone in this regard !  Here is a short ( trust me , it is short ) summary of explanation , First , the 10th A does not  take anything from the Congress/ Federal gov't , it just declares  , by reason / logic  , what  LARGE and MANY POWERS are "retained" / "remains" with the States and / or the People , since the Fed / Congress is "granted"  (by the States ! )  L I M I T E D  "specifically enumerated" powers !  Second , the Fed / Congress IS NOT given any power over Healthcare ( NO "specific enumeration" ) !  Third , the power to tax is FOR / LIMITED to those "specifically enumerated" areas of consideration ONLY  and must be done according to "Necessary and Proper" justification !  Fourth , the 16th Ammendment   DOES NOT  allow a tax on  "ANY and ALL"  income !   This is clearly covered in the Constitution by the two references given to you .  "Direct" Taxes apply ONLY  to the States !   The Fed / "General Gov't"  was created to serve the States / "Local Gov't "  (hence, the People) and must request money / "Direct" Taxes from the States , IF necessary , or receive money by "Indirect" Taxes ( what we pay when we CHOOSE ( "volunteer" ) to buy things , or  ENGAGE in  Activites ,  under their Administrative authority to control ( hence "Indirect" ) .    These come in the form of "Customs" / "Imposts" , "Duties" , "Excise" Taxes  in their many applications and must be  "necessary and proper" !   There CANNOT be a tax on the "individual" ( this is a "Capitation" tax , NOT allowed ) !  This Constitutional mandate is declared TWICE in the first Article as referenced you , and also explains why the 16th Ammendment  CANNOT apply to the income of "individuals" ( "Direct" Tax ) but really applies to "Activities" under Federal Administrative authority ( by "Voluntary" choice to engage ) because it  falls under Federal JURISDICTION as such !  So , the target of the Federal Income Tax is ... FEDERAL INCOME !   That which COMES FROM the Federal Government !    Gov't  IS  "Priviledge"  , therefore what comes from "Priviledge" is "Necessary and Proper" to tax as such !  RIGHTS may NEVER be taxed or regulated ! The separating factor is whether the income comes from a "Priviledged" activity, ie. that which is PUBLIC SECTOR , NOT PRIVATE SECTOR !   THIS , is the "short" explanation .

 @picnicphones Yes , YOU are missing quite a bit actually ! Try starting with some actual research of the "Liberty" documents referred to by the "Original Meaning" proponents ( Bastiat - The LAW , Mill -  On Liberty , Montesque -  The State , Tocqueville - American Democracy , Adam Smith - The Wealth of Nations , Vattel - The Law of Nations , The Fedralist Papers , The Anti-Federalist Papers , Thomas Paine - Common sense / Age of Reason / Rights of Man , Hobbes - Leviathan , Locke - The Social Contract , Rossieu ... you know what , just go to the website "The Constitution Society" to learn enough to begin a conversation with enough understanding to address such fundamental questions as you ask !    Also take a gander with the US Constitution Article I sec.2 para 3 , and Article I sec. 9 para.4 ;   also try your intellect at the "Lost Horizons" website for the most in depth explanation of what it is you truly lack in understanding "Constitutional" taxation !  Then come back and tell us just how much you really did'nt know correctly .

 @gypsynovus  While I do appreciate the civil tone expressed in this reply I do take issue with the "hypocritical" nature of your arguement style .  As many times as you have taken exception  with others ( myself included ) on matters of grammer  , tenor of one's reply ,  application of claims, misconstruction of reasoning , etc. you've clearly demonstrated a propensity to do the same as that which you call out on others . You continue to deflect , spew nasty invectives , misidentify one's political nature / character , mis-state the positions of  others to give credibility / justification for your position / claims etc. while being unreasonable with others in regard to the fact that they don't  employ proper grammer !  Yet if they call you out on issues you say they are off track, having a hard time with a conversation , need to create ready proof etc. , while you do the same !    This  arguement style tendency is rather juvenile /disruptive of the general tenor of a forum such as this . Your continued replies regarding grammer are indicative of your need to escape to a place where you feel safe in your thinking / authority.The tone of your comments reveals your hubris . The reason for the condensed grammer style is do to space limitations and unfamiliarity / malfunction of keyboard keys as many here are not proficient in typing skills or writing skills so don't let that "blind" you on the tenor of the comments .  Fair enough ?  P.S.  As far as this debate on evolution / creation I believe it is reasonable to settle on the idea of respectfully agreeing to diagree and leave it to the theorists / researches to ultimately prove / convince the world of the truth of it all !  It's not my cup o' tea ultimately .  I know when to leave it as unsettled due to my acceptance of what it means to really "know" something versus trying to be overwhelmingly convincing with vague notions of credibility by association with others .

 @gypsynovus  While I agree with your observations and awareness of the corruptions and corrupt influences in our society , I don't ascribe to your premise that it is based on the "Constitution"  not working .  It is an inanimate  Document , created to state the purpose of government , positions to carry out the purposes , powers granted for the intended purposes  , and therefore limitations of power ( because NOT granted ) of a  PUBLIC  system of "privilege"  (we refer to as government ) ; created to serve the Citizenry / SOVEREIGN INDIVIDUALS  in a "general" manner with a "general" nature ,  by the lawful acts "necessary and proper"  thereby  "securing and promoting" our  freedom , liberty , person , property ,  rights , happiness , ie. "sovereignty" !    This is an inerrant body of legislation  intended / designed for the politics of a "general"  nature ( application and responsibility )  to be employed by the "body politic" ;   to be "USED" , as an instrument / COMPACT  to control  the actions of the "Public Sector" ; and how it is applied to the "Public in general" !  Yet , it is ALL about  "WORKING  IT"  ,  instead of waiting for "it" to faithfully be "worked" for us , on our behalf !   So  stop gibbering and GET TO IT !    WORK IT , WITH EYES WIDE OPEN !  GET THAT "SNAKE BRAIN" AND THOSE "SNAKE EYES" ON DUTY ( I believe you are attempting  to do so , but can't seem to express anything without delving into the "snake" occults )  WITHOUT all the  statements of  "OCCULT"   because , right or wrong , you won't engender many to believe YOU are "credible" ,  or  to accept / understand the  ideas intended , as YOU "express" them .   Why don't you use better sense in defining / making  your arguements ? Please ?   PRETTY PLEASE ? Your biggest failing besides all your mislabellings and fantastical projectings is your hostility toward  and  inaccurracy in identifying those who are really on the same side as you .  So  WAKE UP  !   USE "THE FORCE" , LUKE .  COME OUT OF THE "DARK" SIDE , LUKE .   Can I get an Amen ! ! ?

 @gypsynovus  GOOD GRIEF !  I 've come across pet monkeys that are smarter than YOU !  Even they , have come to realize that the "theory" of evolution has been PROVEN "WRONG" !  It has been proven  over and over in sooo many ways it's ridiculous for anyone ( NOT a "Blathering" FOOL )  to contemplate  as legitimate !   Do YOU know what Darwin's last words were ?  He said , " I was wrong , throw away my book ! " .  Virtually every Great mind  believes in a Creator or has  come to the conclusion that "Evolution" as a theory is based on fallacious ( fill in the hole 'cuz we don't have a legitimate answer )  reasoning  , and "self - serving " allegience  to the longstanding ignorance of the FACTS !   This position is much like the FLAT EARTH  believers  .  Which side of "Truth"  do YOU stand for , ohhhh right , the SMALL minded side !  This foolishness of Yours  PROVES  ( by YOUR very belief in the  "theory" of evolution , as the "standard bearer" of correctness )  that your "evolution" connected concept of  "snake brains" etc.  IS  WRONG  . This is by the very fact that  YOU ,  CAN'T  "EVOLVE" !    Your "snake" brain cannot recognize "FACTS / TRUTH"  even when "it" sits on your face and wiggles !  Now , go swallow an egg ,  and  CHOKE ON IT  , SNAKE ! !

 @TaskForce16   This guy doesn't even know what a "progressive" IS , let alone who IS one !   It certainly ISN'T evident in all his rants / examples / comments about  traumas , evils , corruption , abuses , loss , pain etc . of which he makes reference .  I sense he's a troubled mind and depraved soul trying to pass himself off as not paranoid . While at the same time he demonstrates just how paranoid he is by hastily / carelessly labelling others , as "progressives" .  It's as if he were so spooked by the idea of "progressivism" that he is now flailing about on the issues without discernment at all !   He 's just a big bedwetter baby .  ;-(  ;-(  poo poo poo .

 @findingthetruth  Yes , it often requires some outside reference material to show / explain what the concepts / precepts were premised on .  Also , the intended meaning / understanding can be gained by referencing other sections of the document due to its often redundant nature in reasoning each concept .  I suspect many who try to read these documents would get rather frustrated with the sentence structure and subject order , much as I know I did when first trying to read from the King James Bible .  It takes awhile to settle in  ( the understanding of it ) and can still be rather demanding of one's concentration .  It is clear to me they left out nothing intended , and kept out everything unintended !   It covers everything "necessary" and NOTHING MORE . We must NEVER allow the Government to be expanded / enlarged  , by ANY MEANS ,  because it is well established that  POWER CORRUPTS , AND  ABSOLUTE POWER CORRUPTS ABSOLUTELY ! Government is nothing but DISTRAINT BY FORCE !   =-)  So guess what .  This is also the reasoning that explains why all government statutes , rules , codes apply to them , not us .   It  is  to control / regulate the power granted ,  so "government" doesn't get corrupted ( good grief ! ) .  Now ,...  IF only  the Citizenry and Representatives ACTED on their OATHS OF OFFICE and CIVIC DUTY !    So it is imperative that we "acknowledge" and address the fact that we do have lawful recourse , BUT we must also engender the "motivation" to ACT on our lawful remedies .

I still don't see how anything I ( WE ) state in comments ,  is anywhere close to what is considered ( by sane people )  " progressive",  or can be reasonably argued as "progressive" in  Nature or political character !  It is quite the opposite !  I (We) , are by any reasonable measure ,  CONSERVATIVE , if  not LIBERTARIAN ( perhaps with conservative leanings / tendencies ) . I understand "progressive" to mean "socialist" in disguise . Do you ? You seem to stand defiant  and alone in the reality that it is the higher probability that YOU just don't make sense !  DOES ANYONE ELSE HERE THINK THIS GUY MAKES SENSE IN HIS CLAIMS OF WHO HERE ARE "PROGRESSIVES"  OR EVEN WHAT IS A "PROGRESSIVE"  ! ....

 @findingthetruth The very fact that the Congressional powers clause is referred to as "the general welfare" or the "general welfare" clause , at all , IS a confirmation of it's confused interpretation / misinterpretation .  We must address all constitutional matters in the proper context / manner / expression / interpretation to carry the correct understanding throughout any discussion / debate for the uninitiated / uninformed listener / reader . It should  , properly so , be stated as "the Welfare powers as specifically enumerated" or  "the Welfare powers as intended to be applied in general to the States" .                                   The fact that the words "general welfare"  are isolated from the whole of the leading "topic sentence" , suggests an independent topic of concern with its own authority , rather than as a topic summation in part of a larger intended summation of the reasons " for  Congress to be given the power to Tax"  , AND " the point of focus for the Tax money received by the Taxes"  !   The two general areas of consideration expressed in the leading topic sentence are the general topics for which "Congress" is given power  to ACT , in  the performance and function of its duties ( services )  on behalf of  /  for   the States !  The leading topic sentence is about the first power given to Congress so that it wil be financially  able to carryout it's function , on behalf of the several States . Congress is granted the power to" tax" for these areas / topics of concern so that it can be financially empowered to function in these areas , for the benefit of the several States !    THIS REASON ,  IS the "primary"  meaning / point of focus  of the "topic sentence" for Art. 1 sec. 8 which must be made clear on every occassion to eliminate the misinterpretation of it .

 @TaskForce16  Yes , both occurrences were because  the reasons / interpretation of the law that they were said to be based on were taken out of  proper context , and therefore , their correct intended meaning and intended application .  The most significant explanation for this misconstruction of law is best explained by Abel Upshur in his written work titled " A Brief Enquiry into the True Nature and Character of our Federal Government ; being a review of Judge Story's commentaries on the Constitution of the United States"  since it really clarifies the correct understanding of "sovereignty" both of the individual Citizens and the individual States , and the interelationship of them  . He also clears up all the confusion on the matter of "sovereign" supremacy in regard to the relationships between the Federal gov't and the States , the Federal gov't and the Citizens , the States and the Citizens , and the States themselves .  He reveals the hierarchy and pre-eminent status of the various "sovereigns"  relative to each other .   Be reminded that the country was just recently independent of the monarchy and was still suffering from some political / societal confusion due to their long term "conditioning" as "subjects" under Monarchy rule .  Many of the newly independent  citizenry were inclined to think that we should still maintain a "national" government as "chief ", in power , evidenced by what some of the earliest  Supreme Court rulings / opinions suggested .  It appears this problem is still with us today .                                                                                                                                                                                                                             I think it can be explained , in the simplist way , that there are two factious schools of thought on the matter of how much central control / authority / government is to be accepted in this country . One school supports the idea of more / greater central control / authority because ( as I believe it to be so )  it facilitates Commercial activity , which is what most people are all about ( by "conditioning" , force , or choice ) and provides a stronger / faster / greater common Defense ;  while the other school supports the idea that Individual "sovereignty" is the pre-eminent status to be preserved above all else ( my perspective absolutely ! ) , with limited government / authority !                                 This concept is best explained by Abel Upshur , the highly regarded former Virginia Court Justice , former Secretary of Navy , former Secreatary of the State  and considered one of the ablest legal minds in the United States . Judge Abel Upshur  authored the review recommended above .  It is considered the foremost authoritive source for resolving this divisive longstanding controversy . It is a highly recommended read !

 @gypsynovus We're in a peculiar predicament here because I ( WE? ) think the same things about YOU and Your perspectives ! Could it be due to Your inability to be more clear , precise , thorough , specific , definitive , and discerning with Your comments / interpretations / assessments regarding what it is that WE are saying ?   You often combine  subjects  to which you  give comments with partial truth and partial application .  Some of your comments are partly correct yet other parts are not , and out of proper subject matter context .  The fact that your refer to US as "progressives" is the most revealing regarding what I'm telling you , about YOU !  Ironically , it is much more likely that YOU are considered the "progeressive" and "provacateur" attempting to dissuade others of the correct understanding of this country's system of government and it's "original" intended constitutional meaning and interpretation . Your comments often "smack' of "Monarchism" and "Nationalism"  whereas the correct understanding IS that our system of government is a "Confederation" of "Sovereign" nation states  allied by compact to accept certain and limited declared conditions of national and federal concerns while always retaining full and absolute "sovereignty" , both as individual Citizens and individual States , FOREVER  !

  None of these acts falls under the constitutional  meaning of what is referred to by  general Welfare as implied in the Constitution .  The meaning presented by Kaci is quite good .  It is stated as ; the exemption of any unusual evil or calamity ; the enjoyment of peace and prosperity , or the ordinary blessings of society and civil government ; applied to states .  I believe the confusion over this topic is based on the the way it is expressed . It is mistakenly referred to as "general welfare", implying  a legal term representing a Congressional power .  This cannot be the case since the words together cannot be specific enough to be defined , which is the point of being a legal term !  Also the words as expressed in the Constitution are , general Welfare . Notice the capitalization of the word welfare ( Welfare ) . This is intended to represent a specific topic , but applied in a general manner ( NOT specific ) .  Meaning it applies to all the several states , or all it is otherwise intended to serve , by design .  This is because the purpose of the Federal government is to serve ALL the several States , and  Federal places , hence its "general" nature of service .  So , no matter what the confusion over its meaning , it is limited in it's scope of application and therefore it's "relative" definition , for practical purposes ,  is revealed by its specific enumeration .  Also , as expressed  in the topic sentence of Art..1 Sec. 8  its implied meaning is as a "topic summation" of the general matters of commerce and taxation .   The acts described in your comments are what I beleive would be  called "political graft" and / or "cronyism" . The  general Welfare of the States is provided for by the LIMITED powers / acts as "specifically enumerated" in Article 1 section 8 .  Nothing about doling out money for any other purposes ( obviously , right ? ) because the re- distibution of wealth / appropriation of funds by  unconstitutional acts / for unconstitutional purposes  IS THEFT .   I believe you already knew this but just wanted to make it clear for other readers . I hope this is helpful enough .

 @gypsynovus  I really believe we all understand your disposition as you inform of  the reasons and means for the abuses  .  But it is done  with a liitle  bit  too much bitterness / resentment  toward those NOT part of the solution .  We get it !   I 've been there .
