It also allows congress to establish post roads. Let me give you my understanding of what that means. To establish a business doesnít mean to build the building where I operate. It just means to set it up. I donít have the luxury of an old dictionary where I am so I canít tell you exactly what the founders meant when they said establish. However, at the time, I believe it generally meant that they would designate certain places where contract post offices could be set up, including establishing a set of procedures for handling mail. That was generally done at a general store or some other common place within a town or village. Owners of these contract post offices were paid according to the number of pieces of mail that they handled. There was virtually no cost to the government. And the only tax was a user tax (postage stamp). The government also designated post roads, or routes along which the mail was to be delivered. The downside of that was that the bad guys knew where to hide out in order to steal mail, which became a business of some of the outlaws.

In my opinion, nowhere does the Constitution allow for the construction of buildings or the delivery of mail. That is just one more area where the government has unlawfully stretched its wings.
