And You Thought the Tea Party Was Bad? This Is Just the Beginning...

Today’s sweeping act of tyranny was unprecedented. While the libs sing songs of praise to the emperor, not many are truly sure what’s going to happen when the 50 million Americans (who are not currently insured) are forced to pay for insurance, or pay a ‘tax’ (As our ‘friend’ Chief Justice Roberts recently put it).
In the last few hours, the US Federal Government, and the healthcare lobbyists on Capitol Hill have just backed Americans into a dark alley, drew a pistol, pointed at our heads, and said, “You can buy our services, pay a fine, or I will shoot.” In addition to that, Americans aren’t simply free to choose the ‘Safe Auto’ minimum coverage insurance just to avoid the fine …it must be 8% of their income.
While Americans are already hurting, college graduates cannot find jobs, inflation is taking food off dining room tables around the country, and the unemployment rate remains high, many of us must now sacrifice 8% more of our income for something we’ve managed without for years. Almost the entirety of the Tea Party’s platform was to drive a stake through the heart of this tentacled monstrosity before it awakes, but now it has come alive.
NBC Washington’s Jim Iovino wrote, concerning Virginia’s Attorney General, Ken Cuccinelli’s statements about the Obamacare triumph:
This unprecedented decision says that Congress has the authority to force citizens to buy private goods or face fines — a power it has never had in American history, and a power King George III and Parliament didn’t have over us when we were mere subjects of Great Britain,” Cuccinelli continued. “Since the federal government itself could never articulate to the court a constitutional limit to this power, Congress has gained an unlimited power to force citizens to buy anything.”
Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell called the decision “extremely disappointing for Virginia and for America.”
That’s quite an interesting analysis of the events that have just transpired. He compares the passage of Obamacare with the tyrannical actions of King George III and Parliament.
Now, consider if you will, those events before the War for Independence: Had England not passed the Stamp Act of 1765, the Sugar Act, and the Revenue Act, and ‘non-importation’ upon the American Colonies, it would never have angered the Continental Congress enough to strive for revolution.
At this point in our Great Experiment, We the People are tested, yet again, to see if we have the moral fiber to resist tyrannical laws and taxes that threaten our God-given liberties and God-blessed prosperity. The Tea Party had attempted to kill this beast, but now that it is awake, and the Affordable Care Act is passed, perhaps something strange may soon happen.
Do you remember those 50 million Americans that were uninsured? They were uninsured for a reason (they simply could not, or did not wish to pay for health insurance, and their reasons are their own business). The Tea Party grew by leaps and bounds at the beginning of the ACA’s first passage, but now imagine 50 million Americans growing very, very angry about an additional 8% of their income going to the IRS or undeserving insurance companies. The Supreme Court’s upholding of Obamacare may catalyze a movement back to liberty, and the de facto suicide of the ACA. If history does repeat itself, then brighter days are ahead.
