Shall We Dance?

cross-posted from the Texas Tenth Amendment Center

One, two, three
One, two, three,
One, two, three

STOP! STOP! STOP!

Barrack, I swear…  You must have two left feet.

Don’t snicker George, if Barrack has two left feet, you surely must have two right ones.

Again…  From the top…

The Constitutional Three Step…

One, two, three
One, two, three
One, two, three

STOP!  STOP! STOP!

I see with the dunderheads in this class, I will AGAIN have to explain these steps.  Now, Tom and James were such excellent dancers.  Will I ever have students like them again?

Welcome to Tyranny

“The right to be free from federal regulations is not absolute, and yields to the imperative that Congress be free to forge national solutions…”

The above quote, which in its entirety is, “The right to be free from federal regulation is not absolute, and yields to the imperative that Congress be free to forge national solutions to national problems, no matter how local—or seemingly passive—their individual origins,” was written by Judge Laurence Silberman, a Reagan appointee, regarding today’s D.C. federal court ruling upholding the Constitutionality of ObamaCare.

Question: If the right to be free from federal regulation is not absolute, and yields to the imperative that Congress be free to forge national solutions to national problems, no matter how local—or seemingly passive—their individual origins, as the judge so eloquently puts it is in fact the new dynamic of our once-free nation, then what protects us from tyranny?

What if Congress deems that unabridged free speech (aka “hate speech” in progressive land) is a national problem requiring a “national solution?” How about the current madness surrounding obesity? Gun ownership? Private property rights? The list goes on.
