    God help us. I’m wondering if Justice Roberts got paid off. That’s how I’m taking this. I don’t know about the rest of the country but I’m not into relinquishing my freedoms in this manner, through deception and lies. It’s been so outrageous for so long, it’s not even outrageous anymore.

    Welcome to socialized medicine, everyone. Looks nice on the surface, but start peeling aside the layers, and it stinks.

    We need Mitt now more than ever.

    Well at least they didn’t get it on the basis of the Commerce Clause argument. Congress can only regulate commerce, not order individuals to engage in it, according to Chief Justice Roberts. Under that theory, the government could have forced you to do anything it wanted. But “it is reasonable to construe what Congress has done as increasing taxes on those who have a certain amount of income, but (who) choose to go without health insurance. Such legislation is within Congress’s poser to tax.” Obama is still trying to spin it by saying it’s not a tax but a penalty. I say let him have his way, then the courts would have no choice but to declare it unconstitutional.

    I totally agree with Roberts’ point of noting that he and the other justices “possess neither the expertise nor the prerogative to make policy judgments. Those decisions are entrusted to our Nation’s elected leaders, who can be thrown out of office if the people disagree with them.” It is soooo time to start throwing!

    God bless America, my home, sweet, home. Happy 4th. May there be many many more years of ever increasing freedom to come.
