Without the Consent of the Governed

Oftentimes, a really great blog post article is followed by some excellent comments. I think that this is the case when one reads the latest Post & Email article:

The Subversion of our government is occurring from within
by JB Williams, ©2010


Obama’s Unconstitutional Health Care Treachery is just the beginning of a dark and sinister age in American history. Now that Obama & Co. have found the legislative mechanisms to subvert the Law of the Land on the federal health care grab, they intend to rush forward with the passage of “financial reform,” “energy reform,” and “Immigration reform,” none of which are any type of “reform.”

All of these measures are massive federal power and resource grabs, moving the vast resources of the United States from private sector control to public sector control. It is called socialism, by way of democratic process.

All of it will be done over the next few months without the consent of the governed, before the November election when leftists expect to lose their fifteen minutes of power in the voting booth. They plan to advance their anti-American agenda no matter how many stand opposed and in such a manner that it can never be reversed.

As I pointed out very clearly in my most recent column, for any federal law to be “constitutional,” it must meet this minimum standard…

It must be within the limited federal powers enumerated in the Constitution

It must enjoy the support of the vast majority of “the governed,” from which all federal powers are derived

It must not infringe upon the unalienable individual rights of any citizen

It must not infringe upon the rights of any state, protected by the Tenth Amendment

It must become law by way of legal legitimate legislative process

Obama’s Health Care treachery violates all five of these standards and as a result, it cannot be allowed to stand.

With all of the upcoming state lawsuit challenges to this bill, plus the fact that the Dems who voted for this awful legislation will most likely be booted out of the House and Senate in November, I can see that the new Congress with the new Republican Majority Leader, John Boehner, the implementation of this terrible legislation will come to a screeching halt through Congress' refusal to fund it.

The unconstitutionality has been clearly pointed out in the above excerpt from the article. What more needs to be said? I just can't imagine that the Supreme Court could EVER find the bill acceptable. They will most likely strike it down.

No matter which way it is done, WE THE PEOPLE will NOT let it stand! There is no need for any violence. Our VOTES will be the weapon of choice in November, 2010, and then again in the presidential election in 2012! Hey! Obama is already on record (via Robert Gibbs saying on video tape) that he doesn't care if he is a "one term president - OTP."

Hey peoples!! Let's make that revelation come true!!

The following two comments over at the Post & Email blog are priceless!

BRAVO! Well stated. The evidence of usurper, liar-in-chief, Barry Soetero aka Barack Obama pushing the envelope of his syncretistic Marxist/communist/socialist agenda is apparent for all to see. Examining from a wide angle lens of the advisers and czars to the president only ONE conclusion can be drawn, their unity AGAINST the values and moral integrity which formed this Republic. If it takes lying, bullying, backroom dealing, bribing, and circumventing the checks and balances of Constitutional process they will do it.

With great consternation and alarm, our Republic teeters on personal discipline to act and react with peaceful means. However, just like the sports scenario when the referee throws the flag of personal foul, almost always it is against the player who responded to the assault rather than the one who initiated it. The foul play has already been committed against the American people, as JB Williams effectively opines, the flag of violation will be thrown by whom? WE THE PEOPLE!

Most leftists are unfit to live in a free society.

Encourage them to emigrate. Canada has been
a popular destination for 200+ years.
- HA!! Good idea!

Hat Tips to all links.
