you know, the amusing thing about this section of the Constitution is that it is "section 10" and it cooresponds directly with the "10th amendment, coincidence?"

it details all the things forbidden to the States.

as to where i'd like to go, i'm kinda enjoying the path you have taken, sharky.

one of the unknown benefits of this path will be known further down the line as people visit these posts in the future.
some of my most read posts by strangers are posts that i wrote years ago. and one that i would never have guessed that people would be interested in, my rebuttal to "the five proofs of St. Thomas Aquinas."

so, don't allow the lack of comments on this series discourage you.
