US Constitution - Article 1 Section 8 Clause 3

" To regulate commerce with foreign nations, and among the several states, and with the Indian tribes; "

Are you contending that the framers intended to give the US congress virtually unlimited power to regulate anything and everything that might cross a state boundary at some time? I do not think so. I think it means actual business dealings between the states - to make sure they all play well together and fair. It does not mean to regulate Citizens and their everyday dealings of anything and everything if they should happen to (or might at some point) cross a state line. That would be an unconscionable amount of power. That's carte blanche.

But I'm curious what you are thinking it means.
