Obamacare is a move towards dictatorship
Cybercorrespondent’s Blog ^ | 3/21/2010 | Michael Connelly

A retired Constitutional lawyer has read the entire proposed healthcare bill. Read his conclusions and pass this on as you wish. This is stunning!

Please take the time to read this and forward it out as you see fit. Thanks The Truth About the Health Care Bills - Michael Connelly, Ret. Constitutional Attorney

Well, I have done it! I have read the entire text of proposed House Bill 3200: The Affordable Health Care Choices Act of 2009. I studied it with particular emphasis from my area of expertise, constitutional law. I was frankly concerned that parts of the proposed law that were being discussed might be unconstitutional. What I found was far worse than what I had heard or expected.

To begin with, much of what has been said about the law and its implications is in fact true, despite what the Democrats and the media are saying. The law does provide for rationing of health care, particularly where senior citizens and other classes of citizens are involved.

The Bill will also eventually force private insurance companies out of business, and put everyone into a government run system. All decisions about personal health care will ultimately be made by federal bureaucrats, and most of them will not be health care professionals. Hospital admissions, payments to physicians, and allocations of necessary medical devices will be strictly controlled by the government.

However, as scary as all of that is, it just scratches the surface. In fact, I have concluded that this legislation really has no intention of providing affordable health care choices. Instead it is a convenient cover for the most massive transfer of power to the Executive Branch of government that has ever occurred, or even been contemplated If this law or a similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of the United States will effectively have been destroyed.

The first thing to go will be the masterfully crafted balance of power between the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of the U.S. Government. The Congress will be transferring to the Obama Administration authority in a number of different areas over the lives of the American people, and the businesses they own.

The irony is that the Congress doesn't have any authority to legislate in most of those areas to begin with! I defy anyone to read the text of the U.S. Constitution and find any authority granted to the members of Congress to regulate health care.

This legislation also provides for access, by the appointees of the Obama administration, of all of your personal healthcare direct violation of the specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the Constitution information, your personal financial information, and the information of your employer, physician, and hospital. All of this is a protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures. You can also forget about the right to privacy. That will have been legislated into oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may provide...

If you decide not to have healthcare insurance, or if you have private insurance that is not deemed acceptable to the Health Choices Administrator appointed by Obama, there will be a tax imposed on you. It is called a tax instead of a fine because of the intent to avoid application of the due process clause of the 5th Amendment. However, that doesn't work because since there is nothing in the law that allows you to contest or appeal the imposition of the tax, it is definitely depriving someone of property without the due process of law.

So, there are three of those pesky amendments that the far left hate so much, out the original ten in the Bill of Rights, that are effectively nullified by this law. It doesn't stop there though.

The 9th Amendment that provides: The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people;

The 10th Amendment states: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are preserved to the States respectively, or to the people. Under the provisions of this piece of Congressional handiwork neither the people nor the states are going to have any rights or powers at all in many areas that once were theirs to control.

I could write many more pages about this legislation, but I think you get the idea. This is not about health care; it is about seizing power and limiting rights... Article 6 of the Constitution requires the members of both houses of Congress to "be bound by oath or affirmation to support the Constitution." If I was a member of Congress I would not be able to vote for this legislation or anything like it, without feeling I was violating that sacred oath or affirmation. If I voted for it anyway, I would hope the American people would hold me accountable.

For those who might doubt the nature of this threat, I suggest they consult the source, the US Constitution, and Bill of Rights. There you can see exactly what we are about to have taken from us.

Every single day we take a step or two toward dictatorship. More laws, more regulations and more power for the government. We become less free with everything those devils do. Oh yeah, they also steal more of our money.

The liberals are forcing all democrats to commit political suicide.

Because of the arrogance and corruption involved in getting Obamacare, we will see clear republican majorities in both jouses of Congress.

And then all the corruption, bribes will be open to investigation and this may even lead to impeachment proceedings against the president. Bring it on!

The Obama true believers don’t understand that a dictatorship is rising from Washington. They are blinded by all the sweet talk and promises of “change.” As I said in another thread, I have really good friends (or they were good friends), people I’ve known and who have known me for years, call me a racist for opposing death care and every other policy coming from the White House. One of these days these same people will wake up and realize they have given up their freedom for a malevolent despot with the power over them of life and death...this in addition to finding out how much all this “hope and change” is going to cost them in taxes, fees, prices and jobs. They don’t realize that those of us who know better are trying to save their azzes.

Re: “Political suicide.”

No so because...

1. Obama is going to allow millions of illegals to vote for Dems in the upcoming elections and

2. Four million felons as per NAACP will be allowed to vote.

Also, the economy is going to be tanking and people in soup lines vote for whoever is promising the most hand outs. Dem run MSM will blame ‘large corporations paying huge bonuses’ for the economic meltdown. Their solution: Government takeovers.

And that is what it all boils down to. Under the Federalist system our Founding Fathers gave us, Congress had very few powers (Article 1 Section 8 US Constitution), everything else goes to the State (10th Amendment). When the National Government Nationalizes anything outside of Article 1 Section 8.... it is TYRANNY!!!

I wish I could agree with you that the Republicans will obtain majorities in both Houses. This situation reminds of a study sometime ago when I sold insurance. The general trend was that insurance agents were slightly ahead of used car salesman as far as integrity and honesty goes. The one caveat was “except the persons personal agent”. He/she was held in high regard.

I am afraid the same will hold true in the upcoming elections.

Witness what is happening here in Arizona. We have the chance to elect a true conservative, JD Hayworth, and oust the RINO McCain. I am afraid it won't happen.

I fear for my Country.

I’m not surprised that this bill flouts Constitutional law. The President, Congress, and all Americans with at least a high school education know this. Our President, however, is a Marxist, and he is methodically seizing power from the people. He said that this is a “middle of the road” bill. I would have to agree if he means that we now are headed straight down the middle of the road to Hell. Soon courts will be packed with “Progressives.” Corruption and coercion will be standard practice. As the putrid Mr. Hastings said, the law will be whatever the gang says it is.

I weep for this country and the people who gave their lives to make it free. Dear God, what have we done?

A case could be made that the American people are just plain stupid since they boted for Obama the asshole in the first place.

But after a year of this shit, do you really think that maybe just maybe most Americans are waking up to the fact that we have government leaders in Washington now who are avowed commie bastards, radical leftist commie sons of bitches and traitors and maybe they should all be voted out of office.

Here's a little something to chew on.

The first thing to go will be the masterfully crafted balance of power between the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of the U.S. Government. The Congress will be transferring to the Obama Administration authority in a number of different areas over the lives of the American people, and the businesses they own.

Everyone please say a prayer with me...

Father God, your Word says that if any 2 people on this earth agree on anything that it will done for them by You. Your word also says that if your people humble themselves and pray to you and seek your face that you will hear them from Heaven and you will heal their land. Lord our country is in big trouble. Our government is out of control and ignoring the will of the people. Lord if it be your will, please Father show the democrat party WHO GOD IS, show them THEY are not God, and THEY have no right to impose rights they believe we should have--ONLY YOU OUR LORD gives us the rights we have. Our government is trying to be God. We do not follow them, we only follow you as our one true God. Please Lord, hear the cries of your people, those of us who believe in YOU, who believe you can deliver us from the evil about to come upon this nation, a nation you have blessed because of your people. Hear us now, we know you can change the hearts of man, it is evidenced in your Word, and what you have done in the past, you can do in the present. Please change the hearts of these public servants so that they vote with the will of the people and not with what their evil and greedy leaders want for their own power and gain. Lord our leaders have become haughty, they have gone against all you are for, and they are flaunting their power in the face of the American people-please Lord wipe the smirks from their faces when they realized that the votes aren't there when they take the vote today. Let them realize a divne intervention has occurred and that Jesus Christ is STILL and ALWAYS will be, Lord of Lord and King of Kings. In the precious name of Yeshua we pray. Amen!

They have NO IDEA what they are in for. The IRS, the govt and the HHS Secretary will be monitoring your daily existence from cradle (if you make the cut) -to grave (at a time of their choosing.)

I don't think most Americans are waking up.

I know a lot of people that don't pay attention to the news whatsoever and those that do swallow the swill from the MSM.

The people on welfare don't care if Obama becomes a dictator because they will still get their freebies.

Since the 1960’s our pubic screwls have misinformed and indoctrinated American youth.

IMO the majority of Americans are happy so long as they can watch American Idol, Desperate Housewives, Housewives of where-ever, get the latest cell phone, video games, designer sneakers and clothes. They don't give a damn about this country. They've had it too good for far, far too long.

I won’t be surprised if republicans lose in November. O is funding ACORN for a reason. And I don’t beleive these guys are voting “yes” knowing they’ll be voted out. The communists have won. I’m just glad I won’t live much longer in this nation. And I’m not concerned about my kids ‘cause they think this s.o.b. is the messiah so let ‘em live with him!

Today is the day they took over. And it’s us who have allowed it to happen over the past 50 decades.

The people that voted for Obama were blind fools. A lack of education is what destroys people and they blindly followed Obama, believing in his Hope and Change, that was nothing but LIES and Change for the worse. We knew it because we were informed of who Obama really was. I have news for everyone, I study the Bible and especially Bible prophecy, I was not surprised by Obama’s election, God puts the leaders in their positions, and in this case I felt that if McCain won, it wasn’t time yet, but that if Obama did, God had a reason. All the biblical prophetic signs have been fulfilled that will allow the Christians to be removed whenever God says it is time, once that happens all real hell breaks out on this earth. Keep your eyes on Israel, she is the key, and see how Obama does not fully support her, it is all leading up to the return of Christ, so I suggest to all of you-—get informed—BIBLICALLY—what you don’t know will make you as ignorant as the ones who voted Obama in. Bible prophecy has been ACCURATE beyond belief. There are plenty of excellent prophecy scholars with TV shows on Christian broadcasting stations right now, and they are all in agreement that we are actually in those last days...learn what you need to learn for your sake and the sake of your families. The only way we win now is with Christ.

Those of you that really want to wet your appetite with bible prophecy, start out with the Hal Lindsey Report as he takes the headlines of the world and discusses it with the Bible. It is sort of a news program with a biblical take. I also suggest Grant Jeffrey, World View Weekend, Manna fest with Perry Stone and Jack Van Impe Presents. You can also email me for any info as I have been studying this for more than 20 years—but have learned from those who have been studying for 40-50 years.

When Obama said he would redistribute wealth, he didn’t mean he would give wealth to the poor, what he meant was that he would wipe our the rich and middle class and then everybody would be poor which would level the playing field for him and his elite cronies who would be the only ones left with any riches and resources. We are witnessing the communist overthrow of the United States from within. I never thought I would see such a thing in my lifetime and yet here it is. God save us all. God help us all.

Once the dictator has the power he seeks - those on welfare will be forced to work for their government master.

Sitting back and watching it. That just amazes me. Seriously, if a few hundred in DC led by the Kenyan Marxist can destroy this country, destroy it, then who cares? Do the math... over 300 MILLION Americans vs. a few HUNDRED. Cowards deserve what they get. Thank God I can afford to get out since it’s apparent 300+ MILLION are too cowardly to stop it.

Reading my local news rag, it looks like the majority of Black Americans voted for Mr. Obama solely because of the color of his skin. Many women and some men voted for Mr. Obama because they have some inexplicable guilt about slavery that ceased long before they were born. Mr. Obama walks and talks like a Marxist, and a few Americans voted for him because they, too, are Socialists, Communists, Progressives, or just run-of-the-mill nuts. In addition, a goodly number of people voted for Mr. Obama because they are crossways in the public trough and wish to stay there. Do any of the above groups give a flip whether or not Obamacare is Constitutional?

O/CARE will transferto the Obama Admin, authority in a number of ways over the lives of Americans, and their businesses.

PASTE THIS ON YOUR BATHROOM MIRROR AND MEMORIZE IT Vladimir Lenin: "Medicine is the keystone of the arch of the socialist state." Once govt gets control of medical care, all the defining, controlling features of socialist govt can be introduced, one by one. E-v-e-r-y-thing we Americans do is related to health.

O/CARE Page 58 and 59: The government will have real-time access to an individual’s bank account and will have the authority to make electronic fund transfers from those accounts.

======================================

OHAHA'S DEFACING THE CONSTITUTION socialized health care is impossible without seizing private medical records----BUT the 4th Amendment prohibits seizure without warrants. He'll do it anyway.

We ain't seen nuttin' yet. Ohaha’s got BIG plans, much much BIGGER PLANS for us. Ohaha keeps saying: "I'm not tired. I'm just getting started." The whole thing is a scam---no matter what they say, no matter what they look like they're doing, it will all change to fit Obama's agenda.

======================================

Socialism, Fascism, Communism.........no real difference, except whether one goes willingly or at gunpoint.

KEEP IN MIND Candidate Obama campaigned on installing a “Civilian Security Force” on US soil. We can safely assume that means the federal Security Force has guns.......and makes sure the citizenry does not.

=======================================

REFERENCE Obama is implementing "The Plan"
Excerpted from COS Rahm Emanuel's book "The Plan, Big Ideas for America")
FR Posted August 17, 2009 by HollyB

Rahm Emanuel's main points-----which Obama is now trying to ram down our throats.

1. Page 160 New Domestic Defense Division
Rahm: “It should include top security talent from the CIA, the FBI, and the ranks of state and local law enforcement.

Obama: The new task force: The Team would be drawn from those with relevant experience probably from agencies such as the FBI, CIA, and the Pentagon…” http://online.wsj.com/article/SB124787391051060705.html

2. Page 58 Citizen service:
Rahm: “Every citizen needs to understand and accept the essence of the American bargain: Each of us has to do his or her part. While the rights of citizenship are explicit in our constitution, the implicit responsibilities are every bit as crucial. All Americans between ages of 18-25 will be asked to serve their country by going through 3 months of basic training, civil defense preparation, and community service”.
http://change.gov/americaserves/

“Obama and Biden will call on citizens of all ages to serve”.
HR 1388 Serve America Act
For more information on HR1388 http://www.govtrack.us/congress/bill.xpd?bill=h111-1388

=========================================

Rahm's Citizen Service “The nation will enlist them for 3 months of civilian service. They’ll be asked to report for basic civil defense training in their state or community.”

Obama:” We cannot continue to rely on our military in order to achieve the national security objectives that we’ve set. We’ve got to have a civilian national security force that’s just as powerful, just as strong, just as well-funded”. http://www.americanthinker.com/2008/07/obamas_civilian_national_secur.html

“Obama will call on citizens of all ages to serve America, by developing a plan to require 50 hours of community service in middle school and high school and 100 hours of community service in college every year”. http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=80829

LET'S MAKE THIS A HUGE ISSUE IN UPCOMING ELECTIONS

RC2 POSTED: On June 15, 1995, Norman Olson, along with militia leaders from other states, testified before the United States Senate Subcommittee on Terrorism. Olson’s opening statement included the following: One other important point needs to be made. Since The Constitution is the limiting document upon the government, the government cannot become greater than the granting power. That is, the servant cannot become greater than its master. Therefore, should the chief executive or the other branch of government or all branches together act to suspend The Constitution under a rule of martial law, all power granted to government would be cancelled and differed back to the granting power. That is the people. And I’ll conclude with this statement: Martial law shall NOT be possible in this country as long as the people recognize the bill of rights as inalienable.

FOX NEWS' JUDGE ANDREW NAPOLITANO SAID IT BEST Free people enjoy the right to use nullification as a protective measure... to have their state legislatures act to prevent federal domination.

A legacy of USSC Taney's Dred Scott judicial activism, was that the ruling would lay the groundwork for the rights of states to nullify----to make null; to invalidate; to counteract the force or effectiveness of unconstitutional laws.

Nullification in US history, is a doctrine expounded by the advocates of states' rights. It held that states have the right to declare null and void any federal law that they deem unconstitutional.

Nullification is also a fundamental state right to prevent federal domination. States enjoyed the right to use nullification as a protective measure against unconstitutional federal laws by making them ineffective against their citizens. For example, Montana nullified federal gun laws.

HISTORICAL PERSPECTIVE After Dred Scott, nullification had become a states' right tradition, and both the North and the South exercised it prior to 1861 SOURCE .http://www.thefreelibrary.com/ COPYRIGHT 2009 American Opinion Publishing, Inc.

STRATEGY To get your support, the candidate must take a stand to use state govt to nullify the federal govt's unconstitutional overreaching into our lives. Demand candidates nullify ObamaCare.
