    "Only 7% Support Legal Reasoning That Led to Greater Government Regulation

    In 1942, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the federal government could regulate how much wheat a farmer could grow on his own property for his own use. That ruling dramatically enhanced the power of the federal government by making almost all economic activity subject to federal regulation as “interstate commerce." However, voters today overwhelmingly reject that underlying argument."

    In one of the worst SCOTUS decisions ever, right along with Plessey and Korematsu, the Justices ruled in Wickard v Filburn that the abused Commerce Clause gave the federal government the right to control the produce a farmer grew on his own land for his own consumption.

    It's a decision that needs to be overturned and apparently only 7% of the population concur
