a bit negative there Bray, but the stark reminders of what we face are needed.
I just read a piece that our comeback lies in the States (which can then again become “united” states). Opting out of Obamacare, cutting back on entitlements, incrementally and then maybe altogether. Feds can laugh at the red states in flyover land, but that is the key.
26 state Attorneys Generals joined in a law suit against Obamacare. That is over half the states (unless you use Bambi’s count). And still the USSCt turned a blind eye and a deaf ear
There simply must be a way to force resolution of important issues before the USSCt. They have batted back these issues on grounds of lack of standing, prematuraty, unripeness, etc. But we need them to address:
1. Does not abortion deprive “life” from the unborn child? If state legislatures define life as beginning at conception (instead of viability outside womb), can the Court say it is OK to ignore the baby’s right to life? Does the father of the unborn child have any rights or say in the matter?
2. Can Obamacare force companies to pay their employees for abortions and contraceptives if that runs counter to owner of company’s religious views? If political contributions are permitted from corporations as “persons” (Citizens United v FEC), why can’t corporations be considered persons with vested religious freedoms?
The Court is ducking too many issues. The attorney advocacy is pathetic and possibly compromised (intimidated by Chicago style gangsta street punk tactics.)
The states are where these battles must be fought. We are fighting it here in our state and have some victories.
Pray for America
Question I ask is; What does a citizen do when the Supreme Court allows the bill as a Tax when the Democrats passed it as a Penalty, and still claim it’s a Penalty? Someone is wrong, and the macro-economy is already suffering.
