The U.S. Supreme Court
for upholding Obama Care as a tax
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that Obama Care was constitutional because it was a "tax". Because it imposes a penalty for not having health care. I am not a lawyer but common sense tells me that a penalty is NOT a tax. It's a penalty, a "fine" for NOT doing something. A tax is a levy on something you did, i.e. earned money (income tax), bought something (sales tax). A penalty is NOT a tax! Now, according to the Supreme Court a penalty IS a tax!
This Supreme Court decision means that the federal government can now legally force you to do whatever it wants you, the individual, to do, simply by imposing a "fine" or "penalty" for not doing it. Your government can now force you to do something you do not want to do simply by levying a fine for not doing it (in this case not buying health insurance). This Supreme Court decision means our government can now force citizens to do anything; buy broccoli or electric vehicles or use birth control or buy clothes made out of hemp. Or exercise an hour a day. Or go to college. Or join a union. Or vote. Or use only mass transit. All of these things may now be constitutionally legal and enforceable. Now, thanks to the Supreme Court reinterpreting and upholding the federal government's unlimited reach, and breach, of power, America's fate is sealed. We Americans, who live in the nation with the most individual freedoms, are no longer free. The government now, legally, has total control over our life! The government now, legally, has total control over YOUR life! Based on it's "taxing" power. America's fate is sealed. YOUR fate is sealed. As of today, thanks to the U.S. Supreme Court, we as individuals in America, as American citizens blessed with over 230 years of freedom, no longer have any. YOU no longer have the freedom to do or not do what YOU want to do or not do with your life.
Un-American? Quite. Socialism? Yes. Horrifying? Very.
This is the saddest day in American history, because, today, America is no longer America. It's Europe.
And this Supreme Court decision means that YOU may soon have to eat broccoli. Every day. Whether you like it or not! Welcome to the new America.
Congratulations, U.S. Supreme Court, for your stupid and un-American extreme liberal judicial activism and your rewriting of the Constitution of the United States from the bench, you deservedly earned the Stu Pitt Award!
