Apparently not. IMO, just that key section, Article III if I recall, basically sets up the scope of the powers and then gives examples. Just because the examples don't specify "states vs citizens of that state" doesn't mean it was intended to exclude that. The fact that it does mention states vs. other states' citizens would seem to imply to me that this would be applicable.
"The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people." ?
Once we start examining the federalist papers I think it might become even more clear as what intent the majority of signatories had.
Just because something is referenced in the Federalist papers doesn't mean that's what the Constitution intends. There was a great deal of compromise between the Federalists and the anti-Federalists. Just look at the Bill of Rights!
I have trouble getting passed the second paragraph:
In a near-hour-long rambling speechon Nov. 14, Paul also revealed himself to be an opponent of “pure democracy” because government by the people and for the people tends to infringe on the “liberty” of businessmen who, in Paul’s ideal world, should be allowed to do pretty much whatever they want to the less privileged.
First, if your going to highlight RP's opposition to "pure democracy" then you should at least sack-up and take a position on the matter. Pretty sure most people with a highschool education know we live in a Constitutional Republic. It'd be interesting to read this clown's reasons for a "pure democracy".
Second, stating businessmen can do whatever they want under RP's ideology is patently false. They can operate how the wish as long as they don't violate the natural rights of others, would be an accurate statement, if the author was at all concerned with such.
Then he seems to go on to blame RP for government oppression of 'African-American' slaves and women (which is in itself ridiculous), and how the rich were so evil to just about everyone back then (except of course consumers who enjoyed deflating prices on everything from travel, to keroscene and oil, and their employees voluntarily worked long shifts and where able to feed and house their families on that one income).
