Focusing on the Necessary and proper clause, as a loose constructionist, I interpret the clause as one that expand the power of Congress to key sectors within the states that are considered as being subsidiaries of the enumerated powers. This is because states have the power to control their own mechanisms like trade, but since federal law aces state law, Congress can intervene when trades get into a dispute over an area related to a key enumerated power. I take issue with the federalist interpretation that the elastic clause means that Congress can create law in order to defend its ability to execute a given enumerated power. Congress has no such power, considering that Congress power is yielded to the institution by the electorate. Congress can therefore not create a law to preserve its power because its power comes from the people and the states.
As an antifederalist I support the tenth amendment that those powers that are not granted to the US Congress be granted to the states. This is because the United States was founded on the principles of a confederacy that granted more power to the states than the federal government. I also interpret the ninth amendment as one that was formulated to enhance the provision liberty, protection of constitution rights, and liberty. This is because the United States if founded on the principle of an individualistic society. The individual and not community is the most important entity in society. This is principle upon which the Bill of Rights was structured.
