Anyone know what happens while it is in the courts? I know some of the taxes are supposed to kick in immediately even though the benefits do not start for several years. I wonder if we will have to pay the additional taxes while it is in the courts.

Action by the states is warranted because the HC bill is unconstitutional. It is an unfunded mandate on the states and their citizens

This picture says it all. Speaker Pelosi has made a dictatorial sham of her office, Speaker of the House of Representatives. Carrying the House gavel in public like a club ... shame.

This is not Europe and Elected Officials do not march through the streets like European Fascists, Socialists and Communists do to display raw political power.

The Roman Tribune"Fasces” [as in “Fascism”] ... was a bundle of reed-rods surrounding an axe head… the symbol of ultimate authority and the power of Rome. Guards carried the Fasces at the head of the procession as the Tribune made his way through the crowded streets. The message was, “Get out of the way.” -By William R. Mann Sunday, March 21, 2010 Canada FREE PRESS

Frankly, I don’t want Kalifornia to join in.

Everybody would be better off if the US were to sell off Kalifornia to the Chinese to pay off the national debt. It would be a win-win exchange. Most Kalis want to be communist, so PRC sovereignty should suit them. The US government resolve a good portion of its national debt. The Chinese would get some real estate rather than paper of dubious quality. And the rest of us would be rid of Hollywood liberals and California communists.

Orange County might object, so maybe it would have to be carved out in a new Orange Free State.

Actually, we need conservatives in Austin, Houston, Dallas, etc. The little towns have our own outspoken conseratives who punch holes in stupid stuff. cities seem to need a few good folks. Just, after you move here, don’t EVER say,
“Well, back home we did it ....”. If it were so wonderful, you wouldn’t have left!

It depends on what the states request, and what the initial federal judge rules

Presumably they will ask for a “stay” of any implementing pending outcome of final ruling in Supreme Ct

I believe it requires 2/3 of the states to convene a convention to propose amendments and then 3/4 of the states approval for an amendment to become a part of the constitution. A real high hurdle to overcome but possibly it is time to try.

Forgive me asking something that has probably been discussed a lot... I've been very busy and have not been reading FR (or all this thread for that matter).

What are the odds that this takeover of such a huge portion of our economy will result in Civil War II? Maybe not an actual shooting war, but rather a situation in which states just start ignoring federal mandates... and tell congress to "come and take it!".

Contrary to popular belief, Governments derive their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed, and it is quite possible for one People to dissolve the Political Bands which connect them to another. Such action is justified whenever any Form of Government is destructive to the Ends of Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness.

At this time in history, it is arguable that the Government of the United States of America is indeed destructive of these Ends.

“and I also saw something that 38 states could do a Constitutional amendment”

Definitely a bad idea to do that with the politicians we have ‘representing’ us right now.

If I understand correctly, there is an alternative to Congress for doing a constitutional amendment. Two thirds of the states can call a constitutional convention to propose an amendment. Then you have to get the same 3/4 of the states to ratify.

I would love to see this as an end run around our losers in Washington.

If 38 state legislatures are concerned, that’s enough to ratify a Constitutional Amendment. Perhaps that is the correct course of action?

How about this one for the states to push.

A proposed 28th amendment : All states so inclined may secede from the United States with the passage of a unilateral State Act authorizing secession.

Let's do an end run around the Fed.

I once lived in California, and I can tell you that millions of people there are conservatives.

California has 58 counties, and two-thirds of them went “red” in the last two presidential elections.

The coastal counties are the blue lib counties and, unfortunately, that is where a majority of the state’s population lives. That’s how dims carry California in presidential races (since 1992).....the state went Republican before that, except for 1964.

California is the state that gave us Ronald Reagan and Free Republic. I say we take it back from the rats, rather than give it to the Chicoms.

I think this whole thread emphasizes the absolute need to get involved at the local level. Elect good people on the city, county and state level and we can defeat these cretins from Washington.

"I hope and pray that somehow California can be involved in this. I know, this state sucks ass but maybe there is still hope..I don’t want Government Run Health Care..I will leave the damn state if that is what it takes"

I'm sure we will. Remember, FREE REPUBLIC is based in California, born in the furnace of the Clinton years. Contending with the Obama administration is simply chewing the same dirt again.   !
