Bring John Shadegg's 'Enumerated Powers Act' to a Vote

"The Enumerated Powers Act" would "require Congress to specify the source of authority under the United States Constitution for the enactment of laws."

DC Downsizer Michael Mitchell of Alaska compiled this list from Article I of the U.S. Constitution. These are all the powers that the Congress has.

  1. Borrow money
  2. Regulate commerce among the states
  3. Regulate naturalization
  4. Regulate bankruptcies
  5. Coin money
  6. Fix weights and standards
  7. Punish counterfeiters
  8. Establish post offices
  9. Establish post roads
  10. Record patents
  11. Protect copyrights
  12. Create federal courts
  13. Punish pirates
  14. Declare war
  15. Raise an army
  16. Provide a navy
  17. Call up the militia
  18. Organize the militia
  19. Makes laws for Washington, DC
  20. Make rules for the Army and Navy

And that's it! Mitchell continues, "According to the 10th Amendment, all else is controlled by the states or the people."

In other news, Ron Paul is supporting Adam Kokesh for Congress. Honestly, he sounds a little nuts, but still inspiring. His wish to run for congress in encouraging, as it shows that dispite all his anger and passion, he still believes a peaceful revolution to be possible. Here's a link to his exploratory committee website:

Well, I'm glad it helped someone! It seems that, besides you, almost everyone who posts a comment has been some kind of advertising bot.

Downsize DC does work hard for their information. I'm sure that signing up for their dispatch could help anyone who is studying government in school.

I hope you get good marks on your assignment!

Please stop trying to make posts in Asian languages! I can read and understand English and Norwegian only. I will not approve a post in a language that I do not understand.

Do not be embarrassed to write using poor English. I am very sympathetic to those learning a different language since I have been trying to learn Norwegian for the past 5 years. It's only after I moved to Norway I was really able to learn a substantial amount.

If you need help, I recommend using Google translate at

Thanks you for your understanding and interest.
