Obama won—Give him his victory lap—Watch his simpering speech he will give today. But it will be a Pyrrhic Victory for him! We must resolve to work harder—unite and defeat this Dictator in the ballet box!
I am waiting for Sarah Palin’s response. The MSM will go bonkers over this! BUT the people have not begun to fight! Now we must start to plan and work to put these Progressives back in the dust bin of history—Root them out of the Media and the halls of Universities. rather my kids be stupid than indoctrinated mindless Commies. Unite! Rise up! Rally around the flag (While we still have that).

I’ve got four things to say:

1. I will die before I comply.

2. F*ck you John Roberts, you traitor.

3. Maw and Paw Bush, take your evil seed children and go to Hell.

4. Barack Obama is from Hell.

I’m devastated over this. However, in terms of the election, nothing will galvanize the right and independents like a push for the repeal of this disaster.

I read an article yesterday about a store clerk who was fired from a 7-11 for refusing to take a “food stamp” EBT card for cigarettes.

If Romney does not grab this opportunity and run with it, he is a fool. The people of this country are sick and tired of being taxed to pay for the cigarettes of the unemployed and now their medical care when the dumbasses get lung cancer.

It is time for a national outrage and if this opportunity is not seized, we will be like Italy or Greece in a matter of years.

A coward? Was Jefferson a coward? Was Washington a coward? All our founding fathers were not cowards. They faced an out of control gov’t in England and fought to leave it.

You post idiotic nonsense.

We have no option of "leaving" our government.

Our only option is to change our government through the institutions our founders so wisely bequeathed to us.

Yes, I voted for Bush so what? Yes I voted for McCain, so what?

This helps Romney set the rest of his agenda. He can start and end every answer to every question “I will repeal Obamacare”..
I followed the Mass Care discussion because I lived up there for a while and it was simple. They either passed something and override his veto or he gets involved and inserts some sanity, which he tried to do. Either way it was going to pass, so what? At least he tried. He didn’t whine and bitch and moan and cry, like a lot of my fellow freepers are.

What we have in front of us is a clear and distinct choice. You can be one of the deniers and sit on your thumbs and use pretzel logic to justify yourself of you can join the fight and vote for repeal. It’s up to you.

We need a republican in the White House to appoint conservative judges, like Scalia,Alito,or Thomas. Yes I know Romney is a RINO, but he’s the nominee, so you better get behind him. If you sit on the sidelines we could end up with Obummer for another 4 yrs, and then where would you be?

If you’re able to think strategically, you might understand that the electorate is divided among the liberals, independents, and conservatives. Libs and conservatives make up the base of their parties and are generally safe votes for their parties. The independents, the swing vote, becomes the deciding factor in an election. A candidate must attract the swing vote, and to do that, they can’t be at the extreme end of the political spectrum, or at least not campain from that position. I would have crawled across broken glass to vote for a true tea party conservative, but such a candidate would not have attracted the middle, and we’d have another 4 yrs of president Zero.

In my opinion, it’s vastly more important to win back the Senate and maintain control of the House, than it is to have a true conservative in the White House. And it’s much easier to get your tea partiers in congress than it is to elect one to the presidency. Congress sets the budget and agenda, the president just gets to sign their legislation. Think about it.

Will comply on the second day or third day. Today am in tears for those who fought for our liberties which today were taken away by those who fired not one single shot. Today am reminded of the words Kruschev said while addressing Western ambassadors at a reception at the Polish embassy in Moscow on November 18, 1956.

Actually you’re missing a key piece and that’s enthusiasm. If you win the middle but your base is turned off you will lose the election.

Obama could win the middle and his base could stay home and we’d win. Or Romney could pitch every liberal/moderate idea out there and his base would stay home.

If George Washington was here, he'd either muster troops for another revolution, or seeing the vast tech superiority possessed by the tyrants, find another country to settle.

Most probably, the latter. If anyone here is interested, the most common form of pre-Revolutionary activity in the 18th century was the jailbreak. An armed mob, usually armed with clubs, would go to the jailhouse, overpower the sheriff and/or deputy, and spring somone who was unjustly imprisoned. Often, they got away with it: the sheriff didn't send an armed posse after the sprung man.

How different then from today! I'm sure everyone can guess the outcome if the same tactic was tried in America 2012. As you indicated, the difference is that the governing authorities are much more powerful - much better equipped - now with respect to then.

My father chewed me out once when I told him I didn’t feel like voting in a rather dull local election. Dad told me that he and so many others fought to defend our freedom and to preserve the privilege of voting. When I don’t vote, I disrespect my father and all the others who served, particularly, those who died for our country.

Dad has passed on now. I wonder how he would feel about the dictator in the White House, those spineless wimps in Congress and the traitors on the Supreme Court.

The Supreme Court knows, the Dems know, we all know that the legislation was writtne to have an individual purchase mandate.

However you slice it, the court just changed that to something they could allow to go through.

Now, having siad that, and thinking about it more...Roberts just provided two things for this election:

1) The base and Tea PArty are going to get energized like never before as opposed to the left getting energized. They think they’ve won, and we know now for sure this thing has to go down through the election.

2) Romney can and must IMMEIDATELY begin using a talking point that not only do we have this horrible health care law that everyone dislikes and knows is going to cost more and provide less good health care, he can also now indicate that is has also morphed into the GREATEST TAX INCREASE IN US HISTORY. He needs to be on that pronto.

Romney can still argue the mandate was unconstitutional because the Court said it is under the Commerce Clause and, if you paid attention, that was his point in the debates.

The Court accepts it as a tax power which is the opposite of what "constitutional law professor" (/s) Obama told the People when it was debated.

I can't help your so full of hatred for Romney that you're willfully blind and deaf to reality.

I see you forgot about Justice Alito? Thomas? Although I know Thomas was put in by another president before G. Bush, his Dad? Justice Alito (GWB) voted against Obamacare, as well as Justice Thomas, (GHWB). Pres. GWB had no way of knowing Roberts would do this, did he? He also put in Janice Rogers Brown, Priscilla Owens,(for other courts) didn’t he? I distinctly remember many people on this forum were so happy that those two as well as Roberts and Alito got in under GWB’s presidency! Now many of you are trashing on him because of Roberts recent turn! Really!

You have to remember that even one of Pres. Reagan’s justices went liberal on us! (Sandra Day O’Connor)Many of you never trashed him when Justice O’Connor went ‘left’ on us, did you? No, and neither should they! He didn’t know Justice O’Connor would go ‘left’ did he? Well why are you and others trashing both of the Presidents Bush for one of their justices going ‘left’?

To preserve our Founding principles we must resist and repeal legislatively militarily.

Fixed. The sad truth is that this isn't going away without fighting it, and likely literally, it gives far too much power to the statists to allow for a repeal; those in power are disinclined to surrender that power.

Crazy? Unless they're fighting-mad, and I mean literally-shoot-somebody mad, then it simply does not matter.

It won't matter. The fact that a mandate has been ruled Constitutional means that America is no longer worth fighting for.

No, America [the people] is worth fighting for... it is its government that is not worth fighting for.

Oh come on now! You’re blaming the Bushs now? Even one of Ronald Reagan’s justices ‘went rogue’ after he put her in, didn’t she? Did you blame him for it? He(Reagan) didn’t know she would, did he? For heaven’s sake, the Bush-hatred on here has really gone a bit too far! Blaming a president for the future behavior of a justice is really too much, it’s beginning make some of you act like some on the left!
