With some people advising Joe Biden to adopt a nationwide lockdown when he assumes the presidency, this would be a good time to ask an important question: Where in the Constitution does it authorize the federal government to impose a nationwide lockdown? For that matter, where does the Constitution authorize the federal government to combat pandemics? Indeed, where in the Constitution is the federal government authorized to do anything with respect to healthcare, including providing people with Medicare and Medicaid?

There are a lot of questions that need answering and Empty Suits held accountable for- but this is the most blatantly egregious currently-


Where Are Lockdowns in the Constitution?
Providing for the General welfare must cover any given contingency; it should require a general, top down solution.
Promote the general welfare, not provide for it..
Both promote and provide are expressed in reference to the general welfare not the common defense and we have no general warfare or common offense clause.

That is our mission statement and the "filtered lens" by which we should be reading and understanding the rest of our Constitution.

Both promote and provide are expressly declared for the general welfare not the common defense.

The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;

In your case, it means nothing but red herrings and diversions. Capitalization is for Emphasis in Constitutional cases.

You loons have a bad habit of making up shit and trying to pass it off as Constitutional.

Where were you post 911 when georgie bush wrote half our contitutional rights away. Where have you been lately now that just recently they decided banks can have zero reserves and the fed can buy into the stock market.
Laws. Constitutional rights are a thing of the past.
Given any government self declared emergency gives them the right to write anything into law they wamt regardless. Even freedom from future liability. It all started with 911 and the Bush era. What you sow is what you reap.
Your government now acts above the law and with impunity.
I could go through that Costitution and show you line by line how almost every right and freedom you had no longer exists in its full intent.
You have no Costitution. No rights. No unshackled freedoms. Anymore. You slept and blamed your neighbor while not stopping your own political party from doing corruptable things. No matter which side of the political isle. Both sides ruined it for everyone.
Its amazing if you read what is crossing the presidents desk and being signed. It always has absolutly nothing to do with what you hear from the media. Do you realize that if you have a new patent that during a so called state of emergency the govt can take it from you for their own profit?
Again.
What Constitution?
Whom ever is in charge can do whatever they want. They have been doing it right under you nose since 911. Read whats being signed by both parties. Turn off youtube. Facebook. And msm.

Our Constitution is more supreme than that. Both, promote and provide are used in reference to the general welfare but not the common defense.
