The United States of America took a giant step toward a totalitarian socialist government when the Supreme Court voted to uphold Obamacare, allowing the individual mandate for the government to force American citizens to buy health insurance whether they want to or not.
The Supreme Court should have their title changed to the Supreme Proletariat because,
they’ve just done away with individual freedom and handed the president the ability to force the people of America to do whatever he decides they should do.
I personally thought it would take one more Supreme Court appointment before it reached the tipping point, but none other than Chief Justice Roberts went to the far left on this one and I have lost any faith I had in the court and feel that myself and people like me have no dependable representation in the federal government.
If they will vote to force people to buy insurance, they will vote to force you to do whatever a president hell bent on socialism needs to accomplish his goals.
I am bitterly disappointed in Chief Justice Roberts, when he was appointed I had great hope for the court because I thought he was a strict constitutionalist who would toe the line, holding to the original intent of it’s framers, and there is no way on earth that they meant for the federal government to force an individual to buy anything.
The constitution is all about individual rights, that’s what it was meant to protect,
and in one fell swoop the Supreme Court has swept aside one of the basic and most important individual rights. They may try to soft soap it by calling it a tax but what it really amounts to is the federal government imposing it’s will on the American public and sets a precedent for things we don’t even want to think about.
And, why didn’t the court visit the other 2,700 pages of this bill that the Congress didn’t even read before they voted it into law, the parts about enforcement, the parts that decide who lives and who dies, about creating new autocracies and the Internal Revenue Service’s role. Is that all constitutional?
What about its effect on small businesses who are required to provide insurance for their employees if they have over 50 employees? One effect will be that they will not hire new employees and probably get rid of some they already have if it puts them over the limit and this will further add to the unemployment numbers.
What Obama is after is a single payer system where everybody’s health insurance is controlled by the federal government. Before he was elected, he said that a single payer system is what he wanted, but that it would take some time to get the country there. That is the endplay and is nothing less than downright Marxism.
I know there are people who will read this column who will disagree with what I say and think that president Obama has done a good thing and that the Supreme Court was noble and right to uphold it.
Well, let me make you a prediction.
I am 75-years-old and may well not live to see Obamacare enacted in it’s full power, but many of you will and most of our children will. My prediction, if the Lord tarries, you will disdain Obama and everybody who voted for it.
What do you think?
Pray for our troops, and for our country.
God Bless America
