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???

GM Takes a Dive!

Despite the governments best efforts to bail out one of the big 3 automobile companies GM still dropped $3.4 billion dollars in the fourth quarter of 2009.  The problem with the government “bailing out” GM is that the tax payers are now on the line for a business that they did not choose to invest in.  I’m a pretty big support of President Bush but this was a huge mistake on his part to get involved in the ownership of a business.  While I perfectly understand that he didn’t want the failure of Chrysler and GM to be part of his Presidential legacy and he didn’t want the banks to fail he has allowed for the largest federal power grab in US history.  President Bush’s choice to “abandon the free-market in order to save it” has given cover for all the actions taken by the Obama Administration.  Our federal government had no business getting involved in “saving” GM.  Instead of having people choose to make an investment with the full knowledge that the investment could fail, every tax payer in this country is now on the hook for GM.  I hope to God that GM can turn things around and I hope even more that the US government will get out of the car owning business but as of right now I can only sit back and wait to see what happens.

The Coming Gas Hike

Yesterday March 31, 2010 President Obama gave us an early April’s fools joke.  What was it?  His claim to be expanding off shore drilling.  The problem is just about a month ago his Department of the Interior put out new rules for drilling.  They closed off the promised sites in the MidWest which are loaded with oil and put in more regulations to slow down any new drilling.  The new areas he is allowing to be drilled are very limited areas and it will take years for the oil companies to get anything up and running.

So what was the point in allowing the new offshore drilling sites then?  The reason is simple, it gives Obama something to point to when gas prices increase this summer.  Gas is going to quickly rise above the $3 mark again and the President will say “It’s not the government’s fault your gas prices are rising it’s those greedy Oil companies trying to cheat you to make a profit.”  The President will stroke the flames of outrage against the oil companies which the people will see as gauging them.  After the President and the Congress has fully demonized the oil industry he will push for his Cap and Trade policy promising to control the greed of the Oil executives.

The problem is he can’t control the price of oil and gas.  It’s because of the law of Supply and Demand will still be at work.  China and India have become huge consumers of oil and as a result the US has rivals for a very limited supply of oil.  As always when there is a small or limited supply of a product but a large demand prices will increase.  This is true for baseball cards, comic books, rare paintings, and OIL.  People are so use to just having gas that we sometimes forget the way economics work and we start hurtling curses at the oil companies.  Despite the rise of gas prices the American people can’t afford to be sucked into this class warfare, anti-business attitude that will be coming from Washington this summer.

The best thing Washington can do is allow domestic companies to start drilling in all our oil reserves in this country, not limited it to a small number of zones.  We as a nation need to start developing our own sources of energy: oil, natural gas, nuclear and coal; and get away from “cheap” sources from other nations.  This will give us our own secure sources of energy and stop feeding the banks of our enemies.

Remove, Contain, and Repeal: The 3 Steps to Ending Obamacare

Tomorrow President Obama will sign into law one of the worse pieces of legislation in American history and begin the unraveling of the Democratic Party.  The American people overwhelmingly opposed the passage of this bill because of the corruption, the huge tax hikes, the unconstitutional mandates on the American people, and many other things the American people hated.  So with the hatred of this bill comes a hated of something else, the Democratic Party. 

The American people often get sucked in by the feel good redirect of the Democratic politicians and make the mistake of voting them into office, but soon we remember why that is a mistake.  Every time Democrats take control they can’t help but spend, tax, spend, tax, and well you get the picture.  Yesterday they added the biggest entitlement policy ever in this country and with comes huge amounts of spending and larger amounts of taxes.  All this leads to the destruction of the Democratic control in 2010.

The Democrats just handed the Republican’s their platform for November.  The first step will be to get rid of as many Democrats as possible.   Once that happens we will be in a position to try to Repeal the Health Care bill and if this fails to pass, to contain the damage it can cause.  This will not be a short-term fight, but will be one that will take up the remainder of the Obama Presidency.  This will be one of the longest political battles ever and one we must win if our country is to survive.

Big Brother Govt Meet Big Nanny Govt

CBS News just published a story called the “War on Soft Drinks Bubble Out of Schools”.  Basically this article is describing a new tax that they hope will stop people from drinking so much soda.  I ask why???  Why is this any business of a city, state, or federal government to police the amount of calories that we as a Free Society choose to consume?  At what point are the people going to say “enough”, if they can tax my soda 3 pennies an ounce what will be next?  Is the government going to start taxing each individual cookie in a pack, or by the pepperioni on my pizza?

This movement of taxing the “unhealthy” choices in life really found its footing under cigarettes.  Almost everyone hates a smoker so it was easy to attack them to raise more money.  Now the new target they are telling the people to hate is the fat or chunky person.  Leave our food choices to us.  If people wish to lose weight they don’t need the government there taxing the crap out of them to encourage it.

This soda tax like the cigarette tax is not a shot against the hated rich in this country but will target the middle class and the poor. 

People Wake Up before its to late.  We pay enough in taxes already without having the government target individual choices that we make!
