” The 14th Amendment to the Constitution provides for “equal protection of the laws” for all Americans. To have a law that can cost an organization millions of dollars a year either apply or not apply, depending on the whim or political interest of the President of the United States, is to make a mockery of the rule of law.
How secure is any freedom when there is this kind of arbitrary power in the hands of one man? “
We are decidedly NOT free under Obama
The new President should waive everything about Obamacare, lol
The Federal Constitution is dead, its only a matter of time before we see more and more of theses abusive & arbitrary acts coming into place. There is in practice little or nothing to stop them, and the advantage they give to the incumbent is too great for a power hungry politician to ignore.
It is inevitable that acts very much like them will be the key catalyze to effectively ending our democracy over time just as the republic was ended.
Not only passed too fast for The People to read, none of the so-called legislators bothered to read it either.
It would also seem that affirmative action is on its face a violation of the 14th Amendment, just as institutionalized discrimination was before the Civil Rights movement matured (and later metastasized).
Welcome to the USSA, comrades: a former superpower, now a banana republic with nukes.
Those who collect welfare / classify as poor and are eligible for subsidized state insurance but choose not to get the state insurance thus get out of the fine (due to poverty) and the insurance (by refusing the state option).
Muslims, Amish and Christian sects that don’t have insurance don’t have to use state mandated insurance. Unequal protection under the law.
Illegal aliens gain extra rights. They still get care for free in ERs, and they don’t have to have state insurance because they are not citizens and don’t have to pay the fine for not having it. Still subsidized by citizens, and exempt from the penalties.
Thanks as always for the ping Jaz. The brilliance of Thomas Sowell is in full view here. He summed up the threat to Liberty Zero has given us in just a few paragraphs. Thomas Sowell is a man of few words who really says things the way they really are.
