yes, it is a general clause not a common clause. it must be able to provide for any given contingency in a manner that provides for the general welfare.The keyword is "GENERAL"...it's really not all that complicated unless you want it to be.That's my assumption.They were not very clear
That is why they said General Welfare
They left it up to legislatures elected by We the People to decide what that General Welfare would be
Unfortunately, they didn't realize at the time that we would ultimately devolve into this tribal sandbox.
They probably should have made it much simpler for us. Don't make us think like this. Little did they know.
