Wow. What a difference a day makes. You wake up thinking you're a freeman and voila! Suddenly you're a slave to the State's voracious appetites. Who could have known that Khrushchev was so prescient? Well, wink-wink – I guess Jan Schakowsky did. See video below:
I ask you. Is there anything more grating than a cocky Leftist?
So. Have you had time to mull it over? Pickle in the brine of perversion that was once our beloved liberty? And so with great aplomb, the Supreme Court finished out this session's phantasmal and grotesque harlequinade in the manner that we have come to expect from such…I don't know. What would you call them now? In retrospect, "gutless wonders" seems too tame a term for a group of men and women who could so willfully refuse to obey the principles of limited government within the very document that they have sworn…got that? Sworn to uphold. And I'm telling you. God as my witness. That promise does mean something even if they do think they are too sexy for their oath.
What descriptive could hold a candle to this betrayal to liberty that we have witnessed from these nine happy marionettes…yes, all of them – the fact that even one Justice upheld this travesty of justice signals that there is something very – very wrong going on in the apple barrel of our nation's highest Court – who so willingly curtsy to the very tax and waste policies that will ultimately condemn our posterity to indentured servitude. Let's hear it for our nation's most compromised kangaroos since FDR packed the court. Congratulations, dear SCOTUS on your decisive victory over common sense and by all means, enjoy the luxury of your own gilded insurance policy that We the Taxpayers have provided you while we scramble to prepare for the perdition that you have condemned our children and grandchildren to.
Gosh, I was hoping that I would have gained a degree of reconciliation after sleeping on this. Go figure. Has America lived through worse than these nine, I wonder? Not likely. And that includes the courts which gave us Scott v Sanford and Roe v Wade. The nation may have survived slavery the first time round. We're still battling slavery's hydra of abortion from round two. How will we fare in the face of unaccountable and remorseless taxation from Congress's legislative task masters? Because oh. I'm sorry. I forgot. Your health care is no longer your choice to make and it's no longer even in the hands of Congress. It falls under the jurisdiction if the IRS.
This is a perfect illustration of why man should never play god. The Supreme Court just upheld a health care mandate as if it were a sin tax and it treats those responsible individuals who actually do right by providing their families with health insurance instead of big screen TVs like we are all Simon of Cyrene. By order of the soldiers of the IRS, we must now pick up the cross for the US Constitution and carry it to the Hill where our congressmen will finish it off? Does that make John Roberts the Pontius Pilate of our haggard metaphor? I wonder.
Never you mind. For all this miscarriage and judicial betrayal, I am still eternally optimistic about the strength of our Republic, the American people and the resilience of our founding documents. We will navigate our way through the life sentence that the Roberts Court has thrust upon our children and grandchildren because there simply is no other choice. We must overturn this legislative suicide pact. We must elect Mitt Romney and force him into the role of Reagan whether he intends to play it that way or not. And still, that won't be enough to get us out of this infernal mess because now we have to live with a legal precedent which vastly expands the definition of what a tax is and what it should be used for. It is a specter that will remain with us as generations of increasingly enslaved Americans fall to the tectonic whims of our ravenous political class. That is unless the boundless lust for control can be stopped - unless power is returned to the people thereby diluting its effects. We must force the Congress's feet to the fire and require full repeal of this Gorgon we call health care reform and even that will not be enough. Like using a trowel to fill the Grand Canyon that has become our Federal Government's lack of restraint. There must be a permanent and irrevocable protection against this egregious act of betrayal to the spirit of liberty.
It is time to invoke Article 5 and put an end to government's limitless access to your money.
