All the talk today has been about the Supreme Court ruling concerning Obamacare. By now, most all should be aware that the court ruled 5 to 4 to uphold this welfare scheme, including the mandate forcing the purchase of insurance. This should not have come as a surprise to anyone.
The arguments all day have been about Robert’s vote and reasoning, and how this helps or harms Obama. Both the silly Republicans and the silly Democrats are claiming “victory.” What absolute nonsense!
The bottom line is that the Supreme Court actually got this ruling right, and Roberts, whether he meant to or not, told the truth. That truth is that there are no limits placed on federal government power in the constitution. In fact, Congress has unlimited constitutional power to do virtually anything.
The powers of Congress are defined in Article 1, Section 8, of the constitution. Those powers include an unlimited power to tax, and unlimited power to provide for the general welfare, and an unlimited power to control all commerce. These all occur in the first three clauses of the above article. With these powers firmly in place, how can any think that forced “healthcare” is unconstitutional?
Of course, it is completely immoral, against freedom and liberty, it is thievery, and it is corrupt, but it is not unconstitutional. Roberts in my opinion, could have based his decision on any of the above mentioned powers, but he chose the taxation clause to support his argument. That is appropriate, because any money taken by force by the federal government to pay for universal “healthcare,” either has to come from direct taxation, or if borrowed, the responsibility for these payments still falls on the taxpayer. In other words, when the government takes by force the property of its citizens, it is taxation, (theft) nothing more.
This admission by Roberts should have awakened the sheep into understanding the unlimited power that the government holds over them, but instead, political arguments will ensue, and blame will be bandied back and forth, only to cloud the real issue.
If the people of this country want to have real freedom, then the constitution should be scrapped, and the government’s power eliminated. Relying on such a flawed document to protect freedom, and one that allows for government unlimited power over the states and individuals, is a futile exercise.
Why do Americans still believe that the constitution protects their natural rights, or that political criminals in black robes are there to protect them? This absolutely astounds me!
