A sort of pre-post

I will be at the office tomorrow (or rather, since it's after midnight as I write this, much later today) and unable to comment immediately upon the Supreme Court's decision on ObamaCare - not that the world is hanging on my opinion, of course, but it is something I will want to address simply as a citizen concerned about the preservation of individual freedom.

At this time, I will only make one observation: if the individual mandate is upheld, then there is, logically, nothing the government cannot make you do, and the idea of natural rights that exist above and beyond the reach of legislative or executive encroachment will have received a mortal wound.

As I am from Wisconsin and it seems to be the Badger rage to recall something:

RECALL OBAMACARE!

Agree completely, Paco.

And it will be time to remove said government, clean and disinfect, and start again.

Better get out the Lysol, then. John Roberts (et al) just sold our asses down de ribber.

JeffS said...

Yup, mojo. Expect another surge of ammo and weapon purchases.

I'm heartsick. And madder than ever.

I hope I don't damage the voting machine when I vote for Romney in November.

At least now that the U.S. Constitution is out of his way, Obeyme can remake this country into his utopian dream.

That's nightmare, to us.

rinardman said...

For your consideration: will this be a boost to Romney's campaign?


If you can believe his initial statement, the first thing he would do, if elected, is repeal Obmacare.

Oooh, thanks for the reminder on the Lysol! We're a little low on .38 Lysol, and I think I only have about 100 rounds of 12-gauge Lysol.

JeffS said...

Grab some #4 of that 12 gage Lysol, Swampie, in addition to the double aught. Never can tell when you need options.

SwampWoman said...

Thanks for the reminder, JeffS. Some bacteria are more resistant and need extra persuasion to vacate.

Deborah Leigh said... There maybe something that is being missed in Roberts' opinion. He states that it is a tax, and that only the House can enact such a tax. Obama vociferously denied that it is a tax. Roberts went on to say that it is not up to the Supreme Court to enact or overturn what elected officials of the House have put forth.

There maybe a message that was not so clearly seen.

In the meantime, are the gun and ammo manufacturers selling stock shares? I think we should add a few shares to our stocks of guns and ammo that we are clinging to more ardently.

JeffS said...

Deborah, there's some speculation that Roberts gutted the Commerce Clause. While painful, that may be a worthwhile prize.

*IF* it's true. I place no bets.

Further to Deborah's comment, I think the C-J is telling Congress and the Administration to stop producing legislation which requires a Constitutionality check by the SC.

Cheers
