Buy What Democrats Say to Buy or GO TO JAIL
Publius Forum ^ | 11/07/09 | Warner Todd Huston

Posted on 11/07/2009 10:48:59 AM PST by Mobile Vulgus

It has come to this, America. Democrats have decided that if you don't agree with their policies, you are to be fined. And if you don't pay the fine, you are a criminal and will be sentenced to jail. That's right, Democrats are criminalizing dissent.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has decided to leave language in her heatlhcare bill that criminalizes and prescribes jail time for any American that does not want to buy private healthcare insurance. Think of this, America. I am telling you that the U.S. Congress has decided to force you to buy the product of a privately owned corporation! The power of the U.S. federal government has never been used to purchase something from a private company but here comes San Fran Nancy to do just that. But, let's face it. She is only taking her cue from the big guy and his "Chicago way" sort of political thuggery.

The Joint Committee on Taxation issued a letter (Download pdf file) in reply to Representative Dave Crump's inquiry about the matter of the criminal penalties of refusing to buy healthcare insurance should Pelosi's version of Obamacare pass.

Once this is passed they will go a step further. Every aspect of our lives will be controlled.

They will determine how much we get paid.
They will determine what we must buy.
They will control the production of most of our major industries.

The people voted for change. And they are getting it -- good and hard.

If this passes I believe we will see many bad things in our nation’s future. Violence, underground economies, super-corruption from government.

Hmmmmm....like the Soviet Union!

This is nothing less than a Marxist takeover of our Constitutional republic.

We would then become felons, no longer allowed to vote or legally own any firearms.

Step by step they are usurping the constitution, taking power that will be nearly impossible to rein in. Most Americans are asleep at the switch though. True nightmares will be preferable to the reality they will find when they finally wake-up.

“And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive and had to say goodbye to his family? Or if, during periods of mass arrests, as for example in Leningrad, when they arrested a quarter of the entire city, people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling in terror at every bang of the downstairs door and at every step on the staircase, but had understood they had nothing left to lose and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand. The Organs would very quickly have suffered a shortage of officers and transport and, notwithstanding all of Stalin’s thirst; the cursed machine would have ground to a halt!”

There's more.

Sell private health insurance and go to jail.

Buy private health insurance and go to jail.

Yes - nothing like the inept, irresponsible, impotent, pathetic Congress telling you to buy something or else you can pay a fine and/or go to jail.

Thanks, Jay Inslee! We will campaign against you next year.

Pesosi, Reed, and the rest of the vermin have their own free 5 star health insurance, immune to the expensive crap coverage they seek to mandate you and your loved ones.

Somebody help me understand:

The so-called 'Constitutional right to privacy' says I can decide what I do with 'my own body.'

But

The 'right to privacy' doesn't give me the right to refuse health care?

Huh?!?

That was required reading in my High School way back when. The teacher wanted to make sure that we understood the danger of the State. Remarkable that now kids aren’t even capable of reading much less understanding the story.

Excellent quote from Solzhenitsyn. John Ross makes the same case in "Unintended Consequences", contrasting the typical Jewish Holocaust story with the Warsaw Uprising, where a few Jews actually had access to guns and severely slowed the Nazi effort to "cleanse" the city. Ross, of course, really focuses on the US government, and the need for people to stand up and make it clear that tyranny will not be tolerated.

It's past time for open revolt.

How is this any different from your taxes? Try not paying your taxes as “political dissent” and see what happens.

There’s a 1,000 things I don’t want my tax dollars going to yet I still must pay taxes or I’ll be sent to jail.

They’ll get around this by calling it a tax and not a fine.

But overall, yes, we’re screwed as a country if this goes through.

But we’ve been screwed for a good long time now.

Before WWII started, FDR’s thugs were sounding like Pelosi, Reid, and other current fascist rats in congress. My Grandfather told his family, “If they come to arrest you, make them take you out feet first. Before then, make sure you take out as many of them as you can.”

He felt they would stop the arrests when their costs got too high.

The very first LEO who would apprehend a dissenting citizen should be met with armed resistance.

If we allow one person lose property or freedom because of this unconstitutional bill, we deserve to lose our liberty.

I heard a great quote yesterday from one of our Founding Fathers, I think it was Jefferson, but I could be wrong:
When the people fear the government, it is called tyranny. When the government fears the people, it is called liberty.

We need to scare the Hades out of elected representatives.

"The US Constitution is not in effect. You are a slave. Any other questions?"

It's time for all of us to reclaim of sovereignty lost under Woodrow Wilson. The process is called "Redepmtion." It ain't easy opting out of "The System," but it is doable. First steps: rescind your birth certificate, SS# & driver's & marriage license. If we *really* don't want to be slaves of the State, we must do this & start living our lives as sovereigns with inaliable rights given by God.

There is always a silver lining.
If they plan ahead and build enough jail space, may they won't have to release serial killers that kill a dozen more before they get caught by mistake.

Wait..

IMO its because they are afraid and by having big brother care for them they ease their fears.

That and they are racist.

And they'll start telling us what we must eat or NOT smoke, or how long we exercise - or we don't "qualify" for the lower cost "insurance"...

You know, we in the patriot movement have telling people about what was to come for over 35 years and most Americans called us crazy beer swilling gun tooting tin foil hat wearing lunatics.

Well America its now happening right out in the open.

We've tried and tried to get people to listen but, most Americans just stayed asleep and just didn't care.

People called us crazy because we tried to inform people about:

1). The CFR,
2). Bilderbergers,
3). RFID implants,
4). Cashless society,
5). Unconstitutional executive orders,
6). The Buck Act
,

And many many more.

Like Germany during the Nazi reign, people just couldn't, (wouldn't) believe what was going on until it was too late.

None are so blind as those who refuse to see.
