Faith based defense of patents

With apparent good intentions,
one conservative analysis group tells us:

Protect America By Preserving Patent System

"No country with centralized control, which destroys incentives for innovation or which denies rewards for individual achievement, can endure. Reagan understood that the way to preserve our freedoms was to play for a win, first with economic strength and then with military might."

And because:
"The ability to secure and protect patents allows innovators the tools they need to deliver groundbreaking innovations that change the way we live and strengthen our standing in the world. It is vital that we continue to protect a patent system that has served our nation extraordinarily well since our founding. In fact, we must never forget that the only “right” actually conferred in the body of the U.S. Constitution is the “exclusive Right … of Authors and Inventors … to their respective Writings and Discoveries.” "

The problem with self-contradicting fairy tales is that sooner or later someone spots their attempts at subterfuge. ...

Federal enforcement of patents is centralized government.

Article 1, section 8, clause 8 of the Constitution does not create a right but rather lists an enumerated power of the Congress (not of SCOTUS)
