Someone who thinks that the commerce clause, actually means the "Unlimited power to the federal government clause"
"To regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes" Actually means that the federal government has the right to regulate everything that even comes close to maybe effecting another state economically no matter how remote. Believes that because they have the right to regulate trade BETWEEN states means that they have the right to regulate roads built in States, regulate what you grow in your farms even if its just for private use, and that the clause gives them power to force you to buy insurance because... apparently being alive is participating in interstate commerce.
Democrat:You know have to buy insurance average Joe, whether you want or can afford.
Joe:Wait But im just trying to make my house payments, how am i supposed to afford that, and...wait what in the constitution gives you the right to force me to buy insurance.
Democrat: The commerce clause.
Joe:Wait what? Im not trading things between states, I'm simply living here in California, I haven't ever sold anything in any other state, heck I dont even own a business, how am i affecting interstate commerce.
Democrat: Your alive, that means that your effecting the United States economy and we have a right to control everything you do thanks to the Unlimited power...I mean commerce clause.
Joe: Theres no way you really believe that.
Democrat:If it gets us by in the Supreme court, I dont give a crap.
