Taxes are a necessary function of every government. Taxes that control your behavior limit your freedom. Taxes that restrict a Right, restrict your liberty.
Taxing you for NOT buying health insurance is a loss of freedom. The Federal government taxing you as it assumes control of your healthcare and one-sixth of the economy is a loss of liberty.
Letting the Federal Government shackle us with Obamacare opens the door to more taxes, more abuses of power, more socialist slavery. President Obama’s Affordable Care Act takes from some to give to others – just as the profit of a slave labor is taken from slaves – involuntarily. It imposes dictatorial rules and regulations, mandates and fines – falsely called taxes – like any slave code.
If this Federal power grab is repealed in January 2013, then the Constitution can’t stand against the Federal Government doing anything it pleases. The States and the individual citizens be damned.
But, we – the States and individual Americans – must take back this power. We gave the Federal government its taxing powers.
The sovereign individual citizens gave plenary taxing powers to States. The States gave limited taxing power to the Congress in the Constitution.
Clause 1: The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and Excises shall be uniform throughout the United States;
In 1936 the Supreme Court re-wrote the Constitution saying, “the power of Congress to authorize expenditure of public moneys for public purposes is not limited by the direct grants of legislative power found in the Constitution. – Justice Owen Roberts (1936)
Since then, the legislative, executive and judicial branches of the Federal Government have shredded the Constitution. They just make it up as they go along.
Just as Chief Justice John Roberts just did when he re-wrote the Obamacare law in his decision. He continued on to re-write the US Code to say a mandate and a fine were a legal tax. He re-wrote the Constitution to say the Federal government could impose the tax.
We, The People, have to stand up and say – healthcare is not a specified power of the Federal Government. It’s a power retained by the States. It’s Un-Constitutional for the Federal Government to provide Medicare, Medicaid and Obamacare. Grandfather the finances to not punish people lied to – by their own government. Return the powers to the states.
We, The People have to stand up and say – the Federal Government can not make any mandate, fine or tax on individual behavior. The Federal Government can not dictate to the States to “step and fetchit” for administration of the law.
We must protect our freedom and our liberty. We must restore our individual and State’s rights.
We must make the Constitution mean what it says, not what a black-robed priest-king judge makes up.
Socialism means slavery. Socialism threatens Totalitarianism . Sooner or later, We, The People, stop being the sovereign of the state . We, The Proles, start being subjects of Big Brother.
Time for a big, new Tea Party. No to Obamacare Taxes. No to Obamacare tyranny. No to Obamacare taking over Healthcare – the services, the industry, the choices.
Consider this from my daily Bible reading:
Isaiah 5:20 Destruction is certain for those who say that evil is good and good is evil; that dark is light and light is dark; that bitter is sweet and sweet is bitter. Destruction is certain for those who think they are wise and consider themselves to be clever.
