Should the Federal government be the judge of it's own powers? That is, should the Federal government have the final say over what is and what is not Constitutional?

Don't care about libertarian and conservatives playing Constitutional masturbation point by point. Crony capitalism has a much bigger effect on people's lives. Get the economy right again and we can then spend time looking at the shiny light of constitutional dissection.

Non-answer. Don't you think our current crony-capitalist system supported by the likes of FDR and Reagan has a teensy-weensy bit to do with not following the Constitution?

Trump Undoing Climate Protections - The Fate Of the Planet Is At Stake

Just as global warming appears to be reaching a dangerous new phase, Donald Trump has begun dismantling what little climate protections we do have.

He's calling it a win for workers.

But who's really going to come out on top?

West Virginia miners or the coal barons who've robbed their state blind?
