After burning 2 years waiting for the Supreme Court to stab us in the back, at least we know one thing now. We are on our own. Why should we have thought otherwise; after all in the 60 years between the mid 1930s, and the mid 1990s the Supremes did not strike down one law from the federal government.
After Republican presidents ran 7 out of the last 11 administrations, if they haven’t been able to stack the courts to give us a “strict constructionist” court yet, why should we expect them to in the future. Worse yet, the Chief Justice most conservatives thought for sure would strike this law down turned out to be just another statist turn coat.
Now the establishment wants us to just wait till November and elect Romney (of Romneycare fame) so he can repeal Obamacare and replace it. Replace it with what? I say rather than wait till November, and elect somebody who will stack the court with more just like Roberts, we take a page out of Thomas Jefferson’s playbook, and stop it here at home!
When the Adams administration passed a law making it illegal to criticize public officials. Jefferson didn’t wait till November to vote them out. Jefferson did not sue the Federal government in the Federal Supreme Court. Jefferson took action, and passed a law making enforcement of this unconstitutional act a crime in his state.
Already Florida, Louisiana and Wisconsin have refused to set up state exchanges. Many states have passed laws making it illegal to force their citizens to buy health insurance. We can do it here too. Please sign this petition to show your support.
This is a start. There is of course much more to do. For ideas on where to contribute, or how to volunteer, check out this link.
If you want to contact me, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please include “healthcare nullification volunteer” in the subject line. I will be attempting to bring Oregon around to realize these kinds of decisions need to be made here at home. Not made 3000 miles away in DC by people who don’t even bother to read the bills they pass.
Thank you for all you do in the pursuit of liberty!
