The Commerce Clause authorizes Congress
to regulate commerce among the several
States. It does not empower Congress to
regulate commerce among the inhabitants
of the several States. If the Framers had
intended "inhabitants" to be regulated,
as opposed to the more restrictive meaning
of States ONLY, they would have mentioned
the inhabitants, as the Framers do elsewhere.
Thus, my construction of the Commerce Clause
limits its application to commerce between
and among the several States' governments.
See U.S. v. Lopez for a general statement
about the lack of federal police power within
the 50 states of the Union.
