The United States Constitution does not give Congress the power to help the poor and needy

Carsten2013b
TruthHurts

The federal government of the United States has, for nearly a century supported programs generally for the poor and the needy. While the results of these programs are continuously argued about between Republicans and Democrats, one thing that doesn't really get mentioned is the constitutionality of these programs. I am here to debate in opposition to the claim that these social welfare programs are a legitimate power of Congress under the Constitution in accordance to the intent of the writers a...

For example, pretend an imaginary kid went to a prison camp. the bad kids there will treat the imaginary kid terribly and he will hate it when they always beat him up! That proves my point because the bad people were the ones who treated him badly and he probably never wants to do it again....

Those who are caught are normally the teenagers who are still fragile in their early stages of life and haven't seen much of the real world. Since they have a lack of experience in such events they seem to believe everything portrayed by the media and have an urge to follow it. Secondly, as wh...

I have read about 2/3 of the Holy Bible, Children Catholic, Southern Baptist, and of course KJV. I have had many mentors, Crazed-Conservative history teacher, Super-commie Teacher, 3rd generation immigrant. My views on church are grim, I think I use the WWJD not like most. They use against the wrong people. Church must be a family gathering with a daily Eucharist. I've read some of the Qur'an about a little surface on his book. I know the Old Testament well and the New Testament better. I also...
