ParanoiA Posted November 13, 2012 Share Posted November 13, 2012 But that right hasn't been lost. It's your business that's affected, and the constitution grants the power to the government to regulate this. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Commerce_Clause#Civil_rights And via Wickard V Filburne the constitution grants the power to regulate your flower bed or build furniture in your garage. Roscoe Filburn lost his right to grow wheat and consume it because it effected how much wheat he would have bought on the open market. We had the right to discriminate concerning our personal property. After civil rights legislation, we lost that right if that property happened to be a place where humans trade stuff and do commerce, as opposed to watching TV and having sex. And after Wickard V Filburn, some savvy lawyer just needs to convincingly argue that not letting someone into my house effects how much shelter they would have bought in the market, and thus, they can create laws to regulate who enters my home. These are rights that were taken away by legislation and expansive supreme court interpretations of the constitution. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
