There is another methodology of understanding the Constitution that aids substantially.
The question that must be asked is "IF this understanding is correct, would the states have signed the document?"
For instance, If the Commerce Clause was intended to give federal government control of wages, employment practices, working conditions, etc, etc, would the states have signed it? Of course not. Clearly, southern states relying on slavery would have not signed the document.
