If Congress does not repeal ObamaCare, America will never be the same.
While the court’s healthcare decision was unconstitutional, illogical, and borderline insane, it wasn’t surprising or unexpected given past decisions.
Like John Roberts who voted with the four liberal members of the court to uphold the individual mandate, it was Justice Owen Roberts (1875-1955) who sided with the liberals to uphold FDR’s social welfare programs. “This sudden switch by Justice [Owen] Roberts was forever after referred to as ‘the switch in time that saved nine.’” John Robert’s vote puts him in equally bad company.
The court ruled decades ago that employees and employers could be forced to pay into a new system of wealth confiscation called Social Security. Many employees do not know that employers are forced to pay half of what they pay — 6.14 percent. Your employer is forced to pay for your retirement. If it’s OK for the government to force him to pay for something, then how can we argue that it’s wrong for the government to force us to pay for something?
In 1973, in the infamous Roe v. Wade pro-abortion decision, seven justices ruled that women could kill their pre-born babies. That’s 50+ million pre-born babies in 39 years. If it’s OK to kill pre-born babies, what’s wrong with a tax to force people to pay for healthcare?
Then there was the 5-4 Kelo v. City of New London (2005) decision. The court ruled that it was constitutionally permissible for local governments to transfer land from one private owner to another to further economic development. This ruling violated the eminent domain provision embedded in the Constitution. If it’s OK for the government to take your property because it needs more tax revenue, then what’s the problem in forcing people to get healthcare or be fined?
With the upholding of the individual mandate based on convoluted constitutional logic, John Locke’s life, liberty, and property protections have been wiped out by judicial fiat by five unelected judges.
Thy name is tyranny!
Who gets elected in November becomes all-important. Many people don’t like Romney, but at this point in time he’s our only hope in getting freedom-denying ObamaCare repealed. So let’s double down and get busy changing the face of Congress and sending Obama packing.
