So is Obama, he failed to qualify as a natural born citizen, as if anybody in the SCOTUS is willing to accept.
Anyone know how Ken C is gonna fast track this? Someone said he had a plan to get it to SCOTUS quickly.
Others mentioned this is a solid case but the feds will be able to steal our moeny to pay for this. We have to get more AGs to sign on.
Glad to hear it. I was wondering what our state would do.
Texas will lead the way.
Regulation of interstate commerce is not ‘the camel nose under the tent’, it is not ‘Archimedes lever that can move the world’, it is not a hammer that turns all problems into nails. It is a provision for Congress to mediate between the States in regards to regulating commerce.
It is well beyond time that the SCOTUS reigns in this abuse of the commerce clause such that there is NO activity by any citizen in any State that is theoretically free from Congressional regulation for its potential and/or tangential effect upon interstate commerce.
email I just sent to Mr. Abbott:
Thank you so much for your decision to challenge the unconstitutional health care bill passed yesterday. I support you enthusiastically in this.
Why is this unconstitutional? There has to be some limit to what tyranny they can lump under the Commerce Clause and get away with it. By claiming the authority to issue an individual mandate to purchase a product against a citizen’s will, they assert or claim federal OWNERSHIP over the individual. There is no other way around it. This creates a relationship of servitude to the federal government. Nowhere in the Constitution is the federal government given the power to force individuals to buy a product or service. No one should be a slave of either an individual or the government.
Besides, if they are allowed the power to force this behavior as a condition of one’s existence, there will be NO LIMIT to what they can force individuals to do. What will it be next? Will they devise a bill to force us to purchase what they consider healthy food? Safe, or efficient cars? They could cloak anything under their expansive view of the Commerce Clause.
This must not be allowed to stand, or I fear they will become even more drunk with power and their “noble” egalitarian zeal. Who knows what will be next?
