Huzzah! District Court Rules Obamacare Unconstitutional

The powder keg has been lit. This is the moment we've all been waiting for. For in this moment we watch as the US truly decides its fate. Do we emulate the past failed societies? Mimic the currently failing ones? Or does the great experiment which began under the banner of 'Don't Tread on Me' have the strength to rise once again and roar with the fury of a lion into the darkness that 'We will not subjugate ourselves now, nor never bow to tyranny'.

A district court judge in Florida ruled that the Obamacare law violates the commerce clause in the Constitution. Read the story from Fox News. He stated that the individual mandate was inseparable from the entire law itself, and as such the entire law must be stricken down. He did give Congress the flexibility to try again, stating reasons of economic impact, but the victory today comes from the individual mandate.

No doubt the brief has already been filed by Obama's Lawyers to challenge the ruling in the SCOTUS... wasting more taxpayers China's money instead of accepting and moving forward. I will be watching this evolution with great interest, as should we all. We should flood the White House call center with messages for Obama to not challenge this in the SCOTUS. We should rise up and demand that our newly elected Congress act now to draft a piece of legislation that ensures interstate availability, addresses tort law, and addresses the size and structure of insurance companies (and necessities for them - seriously, do away with them). Top it off with a clause that NO earmarks may be added, that the entire bill MUST be read publicly to the people, and that no free citizen shall ever be forced by their government to purchase a private good or service... put it down in black and white. Send THAT to the Senate and White House.

We live in a land that was born of tyranny, broke free in adolescence, and has slowly allowed the cancer of tyranny to infect the body of the nation as we mature. Today, and every day, we must remind ourselves that we are free men. We must demand liberty from our government. We must live freedom in our lives. It must beat loudly in our hearts for all the world to see and hear... so that all people of all time will look upon this great experiment as God's true gift to the world... freedom. Natural, Just, and Unbridled freedom.

  2. Perhaps a simple resolution could be passed: Whereas; the previous Congress acted not in Interest of the citizens of these United States, but in the interest of financiers, whose form of government is in direct opposition to our own, be it resolved;

    All acts, treaties, etceteras enacted by the 111th Congress were a grand experiment, which has failed; are to be considered null and void.
