No, but it was in an earlier draft. As I said, they should have LEFT IT
THERE, which means it was there at one point, but it was changed
You might try reading the documents that actually make it very clear
what all of the words in the Constitution mean, as well as the intent of
the different pieces. The Federalist Papers, The Anti-Federalist Papers,
Elliot's Debates, etc... very eye opening, and will quickly reveal just
how far down the Statist rabbit hole we have gone.
