Obama’s Unconstitutional Health Care Treachery
March 29, 2010
By J.B. Williams
“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed…” - From our Declaration of Independence
For any law to be “constitutional” – it must first and foremost enjoy the support and consent of a majority of the governed, from which all U.S. government powers are derived. Obama’s seizure of one-sixth of the US economy via the Health Care industry grab, does not enjoy the consent of the governed and on this basis alone, it is an unconstitutional law.
A current CBS reader poll demonstrates just how unconstitutional ObamaCare is…
Do you approve or disapprove of the entire health care reform overhaul as presented by President Obama and congressional Democrats?
What do you think should happen next in the health care debate?
Both parties should "start over" as Republicans are calling for:
Have President Obama and congressional Democrats explained their ideas well to the American people?
Has President Obama done enough in the name of bipartisanship in his final health care bill?
Most Americans do not want the federal government in any way involved in their health care, much less in charge of their health care. Most Americans prefer private sector solutions to daily challenges and have come to have no faith in the federal government to do anything right, after a long history of government doing things wrong.
As the CBS poll clearly confirms, more than 70% of Americans oppose ObamaCare in any form. They oppose the criminal methods used to strong arm the nation into socialized medicine behind closed doors even more.
The morning after Pelosi railroaded America in her House subversion of the constitution, CBS reported that Democrat approval ratings had hit a new low. Nancy Pelosi’s approval rating had slipped to only 11% and Harry Reid’s approval rating was bottoming out at only 8% approval. They are officially the most unpopular Congress in U.S. history, on the morning after their “historic” assault on U.S. freedom and liberty.
The National Writers Syndicate explains in detail why so many Americans have such a low opinion of the Democrat controlled Congress. – “In point of fact we will increase the deficit by $2.4 Trillion dollars, and to try to pay for all of this pie in the sky there will be $500 Billion dollars worth of cuts in Medicare, along with substantial tax increases and reductions in Medic-Aid (read that rationing) there is a whole lot more we could go into but it would take up too much space and make steam shoot out of your eyes, ears, nose, and throat.”
Even the New York Times wants to make certain that every member of Congress responsible for this unconstitutional act be on-record. It reads like crib notes for who to fire in November.
Thirteen states Attorney Generals filed suit on the same day Obama signed the new bill into law, with many other states looking to join that suit over the coming days. For this effort to succeed, we need 38 states to join that suit before it reaches the Supreme Court, which means American patriots have a lot of work to do in their home states.
Numerous states are rushing to pass a Health Freedom Act rejecting ObamaCare at their state lines under their Tenth Amendment right to tell the federal government where to go when the Fed reaches beyond its scope of authority in a heavy handed act of tyranny.
Senator Jim DeMint (R) instantly filed a bill to repeal the new law before the ink was even dry. - "All of this was done in the face of overwhelming public opposition and bipartisan opposition in Congress," DeMint wrote in a USA Today op-ed. "This process has been an insult to our democracy."
The problem is much bigger than Health Care in America. We have a runaway government acting at odds with the vast majority of citizens, via unconstitutional and unethical processes, moving the nation away from freedom and liberty and towards Marxism, at an alarming pace…
The U.S. federal government controlled only 13% of the U.S. economy when Obama took office a short fourteen months ago. Today, after consuming the auto industry, the bank and investment industry, the insurance industry and the health industry, the Fed will control roughly 50% of the U.S. economy.
For those who don’t know how to properly interpret such a massive maneuver, I refer you to Obama’s base of support, the Democratic Socialists of America. –
“Democratic socialists believe that both the economy and society should be run democratically—to meet public needs, not to make profits for a few. To achieve a more just society, many structures of our government and economy must be radically transformed through greater economic and social democracy so that ordinary Americans can participate in the many decisions that affect our lives. Democracy and socialism go hand in hand. All over the world, wherever the idea of democracy has taken root, the vision of socialism has taken root as well…”
This is the “social justice” and “spreading of wealth” that Obama promised during his campaign in 2008. He has kept that promise, to as Marx put it, - “Take from some according to their ability, and give to others according to their needs.”
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 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. This is about much more than health care. This is about a government allegedly of, by and for the people. A government which acts against its people cannot be a government of, by and for the people. That government is beyond broken - it is “unconstitutional” at its core.
Such a government has become “destructive” towards the very fundamental purpose of that government, to secure the unalienable individual right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.
The people are not safe living under a government that operates with such little regard for the Law of this Land, the US Constitution.
What Democrats (socialists) did on their own, against the will of the vast majority of American citizens, cannot stand. If it is allowed to stand, then the people and their states have allowed their nation to be stolen by a relatively small cabal of Chicago thugs operating beyond the scope and authority granted them by the governed.
This is about much more than health care. This is about an overtly tyrannical government hell-bent upon altering the fundamental American foundations and shoving citizens into a future of slavery, in which their right to earn and own property no longer exists.
The people must find a way to unite and fight this tyranny, or they will doom all future generations to a life of communal servitude and equal indigence.
Communism and socialism have failed everywhere they have been tried. America cannot survive these principles either. The Obama administration has acted far beyond its limited powers and the people have only a limited opportunity to reverse it all and block further erosion of the American ideals. May God bless those willing to stand, unite and fight for freedom.
