My guest is the distinguished blogger and friend, Mustang, who has honored this blog again with another piece for his column "Mustang Sends" ... After reading, you, too, will be wishing Mustang would reopen his blogs!
SO, tell Mustang and me what you think.....agree? disagree? Let's talk about this:
Charles Krauthammer wrote an interesting commentary a few days ago, entitled Obama v. SCOTUS. It is worth a few moments of your time, and I think Krauthammer is mostly right when he tells us, “The fundamental deviation from custom and practice is not the legal challenge to Obamacare but the very manner of its enactment.”
President Barack Obama is nothing if not disingenuous when he tells the American people the Supreme Court has no business ruling on a law overwhelmingly passed by Congress. The facts are otherwise. This ridiculous usurpation of the United States Constitution, the purpose of which is to limit the power of the federal government, was finally passed by seven (7) votes. Seven cannot be described as “overwhelming,” no —not even when you are a Chicago politician.
What does the United States Constitution say about this law? The Constitution says what the Supreme Court says that it says. We will find about this later on in the year. Meanwhile, all of us waiting for the Supreme Court announcement should be anxious. If the court upholds this atrocity, then the federal government will have successfully achieved absolute power over a free people. Need we remind the American people that this is exactly why colonists revolted against the English parliament’s “intolerable acts”?
By voting to install a communist president and a tsarist cabinet, the American people abrogated their right to remain a free and independent people. This is nothing short of stunning, and if it turns out that the Supreme Court upholds the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (aka Obama Care), it will signal the end our federalist republic. Why? Because, if the federal government can force Americans to buy a health product, they can force Americans to do anything at all. And here is the bottom line: it will mean the United States of America has joined the same family of socialist nations we find in China and the former Soviet Union.
There are two important postscripts to this odious turn of events: the first is that Barack Obama is not to blame for what has happened. The blame rests squarely on the shoulders of the millions of American people incapable of critical thinking before voting for an avowed communist*. The second postscript is that we are at least fortunate Hillary Clinton wasn’t elected, instead. (end of article)
*I'm told that (SURPRISE!) some of the sources have been deleted from the net.
So, weigh in, everybody........tell Mustang what you think!z
