The Constitutional Conservative Argument For State-Level Bans On Businesses' Vaccine Mandates

Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Legalinsurrection.com: “The Constitutional Conservative Argument For State-Level Bans On Businesses' Vaccine Mandates”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Back in 2001, Obama infamously noted that the United States Constitution is a “charter of negative liberties” that details “what the states can’t do to you, what the federal government can’t do to you, but doesn’t say what the federal government or state government must do on your behalf.”

On this point, he is essentially right.  The Constitution is designed to limit the degree to which the federal (and to a lesser degree, state) government can meddle in our lives.  The Bill of Rights is a key example of this, detailing what the government cannot do—what it is not at liberty to do—to the American people.

This is right and just.  The government should not be meddling in our God-given rights to freedom of speech and assembly, to keep and bear arms, to freely exercise our religion, and etc.

Obama was also correct in noting that the Constitution does not state what the government “must do on your behalf” beyond that detailed in the Constitution concerning the role and purview of each branch of government.   He, of course, sees this as a flaw, but it’s a feature.

Indeed, it is arguably the single factor that makes our Constitution the best ever written in terms of establishing the government of a free people.  By limiting the role of government, our Founders established that we, the people, are intended to have historically unprecedented freedom to make our decisions and to be able to live our lives free of endless and ever-growing government interference.
