In what can only be termed the greatest abandonment of our Constitution by a sitting Supreme Court, the Affordable Care Act was upheld. This decision heralds the end of the Constitutional Republic, the rule of law, and the American way of life. This decision is a treason against the Constitution, the American people, and the entire notion of liberty that had enabled our national development and prosperity. No American is safe from government, under any conceivable circumstance, and none should falsely believe that they might find relief at the bar of justice in the United States any longer. This decision announces a new form of anarchy, whereby the officials of government have become participants in lawless behavior, ruling in contravention of the founding supreme law of the land, while carrying on a grotesque charade by which they pretend to have followed a law that does not and has never existed. The Supreme Court has upheld the mandate as a tax.
Chief Justice John Roberts has betrayed the Constitution. At least he’ll be popular on the cocktail party circuit.
To understand what has happened, the individual mandate has been defeated as a command to individuals, but not as a tax on individuals. In other words, the court has held that the mandate is a tax that can be levied on individuals, but individuals cannot be forced to buy health insurance. Put another way, the Supreme Court has said that while you cannot be forced to purchase health insurance, but that you can be forced to pay more (extra) taxes if you do not.
The entire healthcare bill has otherwise been upheld.
In short, the country is dead. They can force you to pay a tax for failing to purchase bubble-gum. They can do anything they like. Congress and the President can enact any law they please. You are now slaves, completely. It’s time to become accustomed to it, and I am hearing conservatives who are surrendering even on the concept of repeal.
Rampage, or whimper? I suspect most will choose the latter.
I reject this opinion. I reject this court. I reject the entirety of this anarchical government.
