Federal 55 MPH Speed Limit Mandates Unconstitutional

In light of the talk of a Federal insurance mandate, we need to consider other unconstitution mandates we suffer under. As Democrats, we have traditionally fought hard for States Rights and individual freedoms, fighting hard against restrictions on personal defensive weapons, school choice, freedom of association, you know the list. I'm still fuming over the elimination of methel-ethel lead from my high-octane gasoline for my personal vehicles!

Those crafty politicians found a loophole when they forced me to strap on a seat-belt by threatening to withold Federal funds for my State's highway projects. They used the same tactic to get me to read those 55 MPH Speed Limit signs and force me to buy a radar detector.

I sure hope they don't figure out how to circumvent my freedums by coercing states to mandate that I buy Health Insurance!

Join the fight. Join the Tea Party!

Stacking this weak tea, as oppossed to what Walker and the comments on FDL say about the issue, really leaves you in an unconvincing postion; is the lack of anything convincing to me the rationale for the snark?

RE: FDL?

Seriously, you have to cite something other than that when you're calling an argument 'weak'.

RE: FDL?

Your tiny tent sounds pretty weak too.

Commerce Clause

Gosh what would regulating speed limits on Freeways that are mostly U.S. Highways and Interstates have to do with regulating Interstate Commerce?

 

Oh did I say Interstate? Or U.S.?
