The Danger of Obamacare to Liberty
In a Detroit courtroom yesterday Judge George Caram Steeh declared that a penalty on those who chose not to buy health insurance is legal. But is it Constitutional? It is clear just by reading the Constitution that the Framers would have rejected the Democrat’s healthcare law. This law is the greatest power grab in US history by the Federal Government, and does nothing to protect the Liberty of the individual.
What’s even more clear to me is that the Obamacare law has set a dangerous precedent for stealing the liberty of all American’s. In the name of cost control and covering people without insurances the Democrats have taken away your Right to choose how you spend your own money which is part of your Private Property. Worse yet the law forces you into a private contract with another private group. In the case of Obamacare the Federal Government has declared that if you do not buy a State okayed product, i.e. health insurance, then you will be fined, and failure to pay your fines’ could land you in jail.
So now that the precedent is out there, what next might the Government say you MUST buy or be fine or even jailed for?
It sounds ridiculous doesn’t it…that the American Government would be threatening private citizens to buy products that they do not want or need, but this is the realty of the law. It is easy to see how we are now less free today then we were yesterday, due to this law. Around the nation we are also seeing the opposite, government officials, like Mayor Bloomberg of New York, are pushing to stop the American people from exercising their Rights to buy products, such as salt and sugary drinks.
If this dangerous trend continues we will continue to see more and more of our liberties taken away, yes they will seem like small things at the time but they start to build and build and build. One day we will look back on our lives and ask ourselves what happened, and say: “this was not the nation our Founders fought for or the one I remember as a child”.
America we are at a cross roads with this election we can continue down a path that leads towards a soft Tyranny or we can choose a path that restores our Liberty’s. Will we continue to send Leftist like Obama, Reid and Pelosi who believe that they have the power to dictate to you what products you must buy, or will we start to send people who will fight to reduce THEIR OWN power and the power of the National Government. If we continue to send power-hungry politicians to Washington then all American’s will see their freedom diminished and we will have DESERVED it…
…Ask yourself this one question, If the Congress can Order You to buy Health Insurance, then can they order you to eat three vegetables and fruits per day???
If so then, where does the power of the Congress, President and the Courts end???
