We Watch As The Berlin Wall Falls
Jun 29, 2012 | by Laz A. Mataz

I have always wondered how it felt to be a committed Communist in the former Soviet Union, when the system collapsed and the Berlin Wall fell.

Now I know. 

Yesterday, the Supreme Court of the United States of America tore up the social contract between America and her citizens. They concluded that it was legal and Constitutional to force a citizen to buy a government-sanctioned product or service.

This flies squarely in the face of everything it is to be a free citizen, and totally upends the concept of free markets. Armed with this ruling, the government may now decree that every citizen purchase a particular car, a particular item of clothing.... or, harkening back to the 1930's German experience, a particular book (Of course, even Hitler saw that it would be unreasonable to force people to buy his book, so he gave them for free to newlyweds and soldiers at the front).

Forced commerce, that is what it may reasonably be called. In what way does this differ from Central Planning, the famously failed Soviet model?

Many pundits have noted that this will likely hurt Obama and his minions in Congress and the Senate in November. While this is possibly true, does it matter? Does it change the fact that the Supreme Court has drastically altered the social contract between America's government and her people? Party control waxes. Party control wanes. But SCOTUS rulings take decades to reverse, on the rare occasions they are reversed at all. All it takes is one bad election, and the government can now decree we must own certain products and services.

We will see all sorts of freedom-limiting compelled purchases. Obviously, each person needs burial insurance, right? And liability insurance on a personal level, this is reasonable, isn't it? After all, suppose you accidently harm someone? And OF COURSE, each person who wishes to post their opinion on the internet... they will clearly need 'slander and libel' insurance, in case they should speak ill of another. All these 'insurances' are intended as new taxes, only, and in the last case, shall be created to expressly restrict free speech.

In light of this ruling, perhaps the poem at the base of the Statue of Liberty needs to be updated:

  

Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe in a specifically decreed manner by an all-powerful Federal government,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the door that is mandated that every citizen own (c.f., 2013's HR 5695, the Congressional Golden Door Possession Act)!"
 

I asked at the beginning of this editorial, what it must have felt like, as a committed Communist, to see the Soviet Union fall. Well, now I know, for I -- someone committed to freedom and the American ideal embodied in the Constitution -- watched America begin the final leg of it's fall on June 28, 2012, at 10:00AM Eastern Standard Time.

Perhaps the fall is necessary in order to be helped back up again.

It was a nice run while it lasted. I feel sorry for all of those patriots before us who fought and died to preserve liberty and freedom for this nation, only to have it whither away under the careful supervision of our marxist-in-Chief, President Barack Hussein Obama.

Socialism has never worked where its been tried - it’s too bad that there are so many Americans totally ignorant of that fact.

When England went merrily insane, and began with all kinds of odd legislation, I wondered out loud to what gain that they defeated the Nazis in World War II.

Where America will be, a mere 5 to 10 years hence ... I wonder, to what gain that we defeated the Nazis in that same war.

Thanks, Laz.

I am truly out of words to express myself at this massive betrayal—by the Legislative, the Executive and now the Judicial branches of our Imperial Government.

We have just over four months to save this country.

If that fails, the only recourse is to obtain new guards for our liberties, and the cost to do that will be unimaginable.

Too late if it's not your own private pool. You better get in the swim before it is shut down to comply with the ADA requirement that every public pool must have a pool life for the handicapped or be closed.

Aw crap. Moderator, I left out some really important points. Could you imbed them after this paragraph, so that it reads:
Many pundits have noted that this will likely hurt Obama and his minions in Congress and the Senate in November. While this is possibly true, does it matter? Does it change the fact that the Supreme Court has drastically altered the social contract between America's government and her people? Party control waxes. Party control wanes. But SCOTUS rulings take decades to reverse, on the rare occasions they are reversed at all. All it takes is one bad election, and the government can now decree we must own certain products and services.

All these 'insurances' are intended as new taxes, only, and in the last case, shall be created to expressly restrict free speech.
I know, it's asking a lot, but please give me a pass. I'm really depressed with this ruling.

MENDING WALL
Robert Frost

Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,
That sends the frozen-ground-swell under it,
And spills the upper boulders in the sun,
And makes gaps even two can pass abreast.
The work of hunters is another thing:
I have come after them and made repair
Where they have left not one stone on a stone,
But they would have the rabbit out of hiding,
To please the yelping dogs. The gaps I mean,
No one has seen them made or heard them made,
But at spring mending-time we find them there.
I let my neighbor know beyond the hill;
And on a day we meet to walk the line
And set the wall between us once again.
We keep the wall between us as we go.
To each the boulders that have fallen to each.
And some are loaves and some so nearly balls
We have to use a spell to make them balance:
‘Stay where you are until our backs are turned!’
We wear our fingers rough with handling them.
Oh, just another kind of out-door game,
One on a side. It comes to little more:
There where it is we do not need the wall:
He is all pine and I am apple orchard.
My apple trees will never get across
And eat the cones under his pines, I tell him.
He only says, ‘Good fences make good neighbors’.
Spring is the mischief in me, and I wonder
If I could put a notion in his head:
‘Why do they make good neighbors? Isn’t it
Where there are cows?
But here there are no cows.
Before I built a wall I’d ask to know
What I was walling in or walling out,
And to whom I was like to give offence.
Something there is that doesn’t love a wall,
That wants it down.’ I could say ‘Elves’ to him,
But it’s not elves exactly, and I’d rather
He said it for himself. I see him there
Bringing a stone grasped firmly by the top
In each hand, like an old-stone savage armed.
He moves in darkness as it seems to me~
Not of woods only and the shade of trees.
He will not go behind his father’s saying,
And he likes having thought of it so well
He says again, “Good fences make good neighbors.”

Well, the deal is, I'm not sure what a fight looks like here. How do you fight a SCOTUS ruling that fundamentally transforms the American social contract?

Okay, vote conservative congresspeople into office. What does that accomplish? The SCOTUS ruling still stands.

Okay, vote conservative Senators into office. What does that accomplish? The SCOTUS ruling still stands.

Okay, vote Romney into office. What does that accomplish? The SCOTUS ruling still stands.

Well written as always. My thought was of poor old Lazar M. Kaganovich, Stalin’s railway boss and sometimes oppressor of kulaks in the Ukraine (gotta have a hobby, you know). Iron Lazar had the misfortune to live into his 90’s and watch the collapse of the system he built. His last words were uttered while watching on TV the violence around the parliament building in Moscow. They were “It’s a catastrophe!” Then he died.

Now, I’m not gonna die and I’m not an oppressor of kulaks, but I do know how old Lazar felt. What has happened to our country is a catastrophe. It’s not just health care, it’s the EPA, the trial lawyers, the worship of homosexuality in our public institutions, and the creation of a permanent unproductive underclass of moochers.

I am ashamed of my country and my people. I will not fly Old Glory next Wednesday, and may not do so again. I just cannot support the government that recognizes no obligation to serve or protect me, and has no sense of restraint in the exercise of it’s power over me. Instead it only exists to exploit and oppress me. I too am a student of history. German history. No German in 1925 would have considered stuffing all the Jews into ovens. Twenty years later they had done that to six million of them. After the nightmare was over they all wrung their hands in self-pity asking “how could we have let this happen?”

Someday, will the American people have to ask the same question?

PS: Please make me #112 on your list.

We are fast approaching the stage of the ultimate inversion: the stage where the government is free to do anything it pleases, while the citizens may act only by permission; which is the stage of the darkest periods of human history, the stage of rule by brute force. - Ayn Rand

In America,
you have the right
to vote
to take away our freedoms.

We then have the Constitutional duty
to take away your life.
And we carry that sacred duty
even if we are the minority;
especially, if we are the minority,
to preserve freedom for all future Americans.

“But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.”

You do not vote out tyrannical government, you throw off tyrannical government.

If you start by considering that the pirate Roberts was placed on the court for hidden reasons, without SCOTUS experience yet as the head of the Court, and then look at his ruling votes so far, it becomes apparent that he is serving an agenda hidden behind the black robed oligarchical musings.

With his announcement that the monstrosity was 'Constitutional' because it has attached a tax rather than a mandated penalty, he accomplished more than one of the goals of that hidden agenda: one, he granted UNLIMITED power to Congress to herd behavior by using punitive taxation as a stick, and two, he has arranged for the insurance industry to fail under forced acceptance of pre-existing conditions and buying insurance at any stage in illness without premium penalty, which of course will eventually bankrupt the free enterprise which used actuarial tables to establish costs tot he buyer.

And I suppose we may then conclude that Roberts also accomplished a giant step toward the single payer socialism the criminal enterprise party and the feckless deceitful republicants favor, albeit it also hidden from We The People, at least hidden until this latest rape of We The People by the pirate Roberts and his four black-robed socialist chums.

Roberts was appointed by Boosh so it is a fair bet that he works for the globalist governance thugs not We The People.

In answer to your questions, see my post #30.

It’s time those pushing the socialist agenda to destroy our freedoms realize that their votes will have consequences.

You can always spot these people because they always talk of their RIGHTS and never talk about their RESPONSIBILITIES or DUTY.

I like the building of the wall analogy better....

I thought it over, and I stuck with the wall coming down, because it spoke to the death of a dream of that committed Communist.

I, a committed Capitalist and lover of freedom, now can empathize with the feelings of this fictional Communist. All they had ever had believed in their entire life, they got to see their social contract ripped up and their lives upended because of it.

I feel the same, only in the inversion of ideals compared to the Communist.

This was my only post yesterday (and I would add that the founders were not only willing to do this, they also risked their fortunes and lives had they not been successful):

America was founded when one-third of the population decided to take a stand against tyrannical government.

One-third of the population was willing to shoot their neighbors, friends, and relatives rather than be enslaved by taxation.

Are we there yet?

This just in, on the urging of Michelle Antoinette, President Mountain Dew has made an executive order that all Americans are required to have broccoli (without butter or cheese on it) today.

The generous and fair nature of President Mountain Dew was noted in the press, as our dear leader has given choice to the people in that they may choose to have the broccoli for either lunch OR dinner, whichever they prefer.

If any American is found to have not eaten their broccoli by 9pm central time, a tax of $25 dollars per violater will be imposed by the IRS. The tax will be taken directly from bank accounts without any notice.
