You can just not answer the question. Do you understand how the Constitution even works? Do you know the amendments and what they mean?

Well, I googled the topic. I learned in grad school that the gov. will appropriate monies under the general welfare clause to attach conditions. If you want our money, you do it our way. One example is the school milk program and more recently the NCLB. The legal site I read said the General Welfare Clause does not give Congress the ability (right) to control the citizens. Check it out and see for yourself.
