The U.S. Supreme Court decision on Obamacare
The Most Critical ruling in a generation
In the entire history of the United States, rarely has the fundamental difference between liberals and conservatives been so clearly evident as is demonstrated by the arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court over the constitutionality of Obamacare. They are literally deciding what they see as the very purpose of our government as outlined by the Constitution.
When our Constitution was written by our Founding Fathers, there were those who would not accept it until a Bill of Rights was placed as an addendum. The core basis of that Bill of Rights is to further identify the limits of government. And to our credit, we as Americans are vocal about the rights guaranteed to us by that document. Conservatives see it as the basis of our freedoms and a continuation of the same freedoms penned in the Declaration of Independence —freedom from the tyranny and oppression of government entities in our homes, in our religions and in our families.
However— the liberal faction of our nation sees things differently. President Obama and his administration see their role as implementing what the government can do for you, a role diametrically opposed to that same document. More programs, more services, more helping hands—that’s how it begins. It is a thin disguise, accompanied by more regulation, more rules, more taxing and more intrusions into our daily decision-making. It becomes only a short leap from what the government can do for you to what the government can do to you.
The near proximity of these frightening dangers has never appeared closer than in the court arguments over Obamacare.
The Supreme Court of the United States holds in its grasp this very question today. It is my fervent prayer that they will uphold the Constitution – that they will see that the original intent of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and of government itself is to allow for individual freedoms, not to provide a framework for mandates and coercion.
If for some reason they do not come to what seems the obvious conclusion, that Obamacare is unconstitutional, I will work tooth-and-nail when elected to repeal it so that the American people and American businesses can have the freedom to make their own decisions without the onerous burden of government intrusion.
