How to Restore Some of the Constitution

Been ruminating on some of this for a while.

The Supreme Court recently had two bad decisions. In a medical marijuana case, they ruled that Congress can regulate pretty much everything under the Commerce Clause. In the Kelo decision, the Supreme Court disregarded the limitations under the 5th amendment and allowed private property to get ceased under eminate domain and given to other private entities.

So why doesn't use the rulings against each other. Under the expansive reading of the Commerce Clause, Congress should reverse the Kelo decision. If the Supreme Court overturns that law, you get the Commerce Clause back. Either way, you come out ahead.
