    your outlandish interpretation of Art. I Sec. 8.  Explain how acts of Congress can be ultra vires.

    US Congress is not a continuation of Continental Congress.  That is evident in the fact that Rhode Island for instance was not governed by the US Constitution (even though it ratified Articles of Confederation) until such time that it chose to become part of the United States by ratifying the US Constitution.  It was not bound by the fact that other states ratified the Constitution and was not part of the Union.

    Nor did Congress write the Constitution.  It was written by a Constitutional Convention that had no relation whatever to Congress.

    For future posts, do not requoute Art. I, since we disagree as to its meaning.  Cite authority that supports your interpretation.
