Today SCOTUS ruled there are no practical limits to federal power.
Supreme Court upholds individual mandate, ObamaCare survives
Score one for tyranny in the battle of Ameritopia.
The Statists In Black have not only punted in this act of judicial cowardice, they have in fact forfeited their very purpose in our original constitutional system. Having ruled the government has the power to universally mandate something, why wouldn't it have the power to universally mandate anything? So, why even have judicial review of anything at all? Tyranny. Period. End of sentence.
It is now up to We The People to use what remains of the constitutional system to repair the damage inflicted upon the republic by this tyrannical ruling.
Are you listening Mittens? Establishment GOP? Repeal *must* be a central campaign theme. Repeal *must* be legislated on day one of the next congressional session, and signed on Inauguration day.
Meanwhile, get some ambitious intern working on Amendment 28 to the constitution - "Congress shall make no law universally mandating the purchase or production of any product or service." Start winding it through the states by next week. Do your job. By my lights 1994-1995 was the last time you did. That's a long time for ceding the field to the statists.
