Tomorrow – the Fourth of July – should be considered a national day of mourning.
Having affirmed the constitutionality of Obamacare – that is, of the federal government’s asserted authority not merely to force each of us to purchase the “services” of a private, government-backed cartel (the insurance mafia) but also implicitly its asserted authority over our very selves (because what could be more fundamental to “our health” than our selves?) — there is now no line the government may not, in principle (and so, inevitably, in practice) cross.
The gauntlet has been thrown down. The idea of the Constitution as a check on what the federal government may not do is as absurd as the Soviet Bill of Rights. There is nothing the federal government may not do. No area of our lives that remains off limits. Consider this as you celebrate your “freedoms” tomorrow… .
Just off the top of my head:
Mandatory life insurance – or else.
