Rasmussen: Conservative Anger Against Obamacare Hitting 'Stratospheric Levels'
Newsmax ^ | 7/2/12 | Paul Scicchitano and Kathleen Walter

Posted on 07/02/2012 4:39:50 PM PDT by Nachum

Conservative interest in the presidential election hit “stratospheric levels” following last week’s Supreme Court ruling upholding Obamacare, noted pollster and author Scott Rasmussen tells Newsmax.TV.

“All that did was energize conservatives,” declared Rasmussen in an exclusive interview on Monday. “The conservative interest in the election was already much higher than that of moderates and liberals. It went up to really stratospheric levels right after the ruling. We don’t know if that will continue or if it’s just a temporary response to the news cycle.”

It isn’t temporary.

It isn’t just because of CommieCare.

Conservatives are owners. That is they have a vested interest in the future of the country they love. We don’t burn white hot and then fizzle out like self-serving leftists, including assorted perverts and parasites, condescending useless academics, Union deadasses, and minority racists.

I was not going to vote for Romney. I was adamant against him. I’m voting for him now. The tea is in the harbor. There’s no turning back now. It’s 1774 again and we’ve just been handed the intolerable acts.

Boner said we have to rip Obamacare out by the roots. I’d like to rip Nazi’s dyed, spritzed, coiffed hair out by the roots.
Angry? I’m pre postal,and by the way, I take care of myself and am quite healthy for my age. Why should I have to pay for every parasitic slouch;s exhorbitant hc costs because they don’t take care of themselves.

Obesity=diabetes=heart problems=knee replacements=hip replacements=etc, etc.
Drug addiction=liver transplant=etc, etc.

And also, the illegal aliens who take their kids to my ER for runny noses. I”M NOT GONNA TAKE IT ANY MORE. :-)

Angry? They haven’t seen us angry.

I’m angry that our president chooses to spend July 4th
in Paris smoozing it up with euroexpat liberals, when
he could have gone to Afghanistan with 10 tons of hot
dogs and beer for the troops. Maybe he could have fired
a few hundred rounds from a Madeuce at an effigy of
I’manutjob and gotten his eagle on.

Temporary anger at the destruction of our freedom? I don't think so.

It's time to go all in - when donating to and voting for the US Senate, US House, Governor, state legislature, and even local offices, even the presidential election for those in swing states who can stomach our nominee. We need every conservative registered to vote, and we need every conservative at the polls. We are facing the end of the free world as we know it, and only a massive turnout for freedom can stop this. We need to make sure that, outside San Francisco, DC, and Massachusetts, no democrat and no liberal can even win office as dog catcher.

Righteous anger will last not just until the election but until ObamaCare is repealed and the federal government is cut down to size.

That would be true. I must admit to being more furious about this than I have ever been with government. This isn’t just about death care. It is the fact that the feds power to tax us into out right open slavery has been increased.

The door is wide open and I believe if we do not get this under control the government will eventually use open force against their slaves.

I would have never imagined the SCOTUS taking this line of defense for death care. LOCK and LOAD.

Conservative Anger Against Obamacare Hitting 'Stratospheric Levels'

All that did was energize conservatives

I do believe, that is what Judge Roberts had in mind.

Judge Roberts intended to kill 3 birds with one stone.

The commerce clause will no longer serve as an easy excuse for creating more government programs.

Re-defined Obamacare as a huge taxing program, which the people won't be very happy about, and Obama and the democrats will get the sole blame.

And, with the people getting outraged, and working harder than ever to get rid of Obama, it will be "check-mate".

Three birds, one stone. Judge Roberts was playing chess at a high level, while Obama and the democrats, and the press, were all playing checkers, and weren't ready for the "unexpected" ruling.

Scott, you’ve no idea, I mean, you just cannot even fathom.

But it really doesn’t even matter.

Electing Romney doesn’t matter, replealing ObamaTax doesn’t matter, the precedent has been set.

Law was written by Chief Traitor John Roberts, and it cannot be overturned by any civil means at all.

The federal government can now compel behavior via taxation, and there isn’t a damn thing that can be done about it.

America is dead.

The supreme court is supposed to uphold the Constitution which does not list control of healthcare anywhere in the enumerated powers of the Federal Government. The Supreme Court is supposed to protect us from the tyrrany of the majority, but they have delivered us into the hands of yhe lying tyrants.

I did not vote for Romney in the Florida Primaries. But the bottom line in my book, Mitt Romney won fair and square the GOP nomination. Is he has conservative as I would like? No.

At this point any warm body is better than Obama. Its going to be Mitt vs Barack and if you vote for a 3rd person or do a write in, you are really just giving a vote for Obama.

Rassmussen is correct, I am over the top livid over the Supreme Court decision. The only minor sign of a silver lininng is the fact we can now at least call ObamaCare what it really is OBAMATAX.

I would craw over a mile on broken glass in 100 degree heat to get to the polls in November. I cannot wait to vote. I am dying to do my part to get this joker out of the White House.

In addition.

Did you know--- Regarding Obama Care --- this "TAX" has a provision requiring all persons have a chip implanted to make it possible to access all your medical records and history for the supposed purpose of "Health Care." Here's the RFID in Obama care:

Page 1014, line 8 through page 1017

Link housedocs.house.gov

It is bad enough that we have been ScaMMed by this administration and their Health Care TAX. Now we will be ScaNNed!

Who, pray tell, will stand up for the future liberty of the grandchildren and great-grandchildren of so-called "progressives" (or "liberals") if it is not today's conservatives, whose goal is to restore the Constitution's protections for individuals and strict limitations on the coercive power of government to "take" and "redistribute" away every single bit of wealth the nation's workers can create?

"Ideas have consequences!" Weaver

The "idea" of "redistribution" by imperfect persons in government relies on an assumption which is flawed, which has never been proven to work in any society where it has been implemented, and makes all but the political elites dependent slaves to their "masters" in government.

America's Constitution, on the other hand, relies on the idea of Creator-endowed individual life, rights, liberty and laws to protect them. It puts individuals, who make up the "We, the People" of the Constitution's Preamble, in charge of those imperfect people elected to positions of power in government, giving them only limited opportunity to exert power over "the People."

Now, why can't those super-intelligent "progressives" understand that? (Sarc) Oh, by the time they've had their brief stint in power on this earth, they don't really care about the freedom of their own posterity? Say it isn't so!!

Running_dog, my conscience wanted another choice as well, but our main priority MUST be to get 0bama out of office. I will vote Romney if that is the best way to get 0bama out. Romney may be far from perfect, but we need to get the destroyer out of the Oval Office.

Get as many conservatives in the House and Senate and we can begin to turn the ship around, but it will take some time after all the damage 0bama has done.

"These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph. What we obtain too cheap, we esteem too lightly. Heaven knows how to put a proper price upon its goods; and it would be strange indeed, if so celestial an article as Freedom should not be highly rated."

Thomas Paine

Godspeed, my friend.

You are deluded.

What Roberts said about the commerce clause has no bearing on it whatsoever. It was meaningless babble and it set no case law whatsoever.

It doesn’t matter at all if people are happy or unhappy, they are slaves of the us federal government from this point on.

It doesn’t matter how hard anyone works to get rid of Obama, or if he is even gotten rid of, because you can’t get rid of the precedent that Roberts did set, and that is that it is constitutional for the government to compel behavior or non behavior via taxation.

There is NO WAY to get rid of that now.

And considering that, why would any future congress vote to remove Obamacare? They can do whatever the Hell they want, anytime they want, and there isn’t a damn thing any of us slaves can do about it. The federal government doesn’t ever vote to remove any portion of power from itself, nor can the unlimited power granted to it by Roberts be removed, so the result is-

WE ARE DONE.

About the only thing we can do now is boat over to Antartica and make a new country there and try not to wreck it with our stupidity next time.
