Article I, Section 8, Clause 11

It looks like both political parties interpret the text of that section of the Constitution the same way they interpret the Second Amendment.  Whatever is convenient and popular for them at the time.

I know that this has never been invoked during my lifetime (I believe that the last time it was executed was December 8, 1941).  But I'm old fashioned, and think that things mean what they say.

For sure Donald Trump is no small government constitutional originalist.

True, but Gorsuch alone makes him infinitely better than HRC.
