Skip to comments.The SCOTUS Just Woke Up a Sleeping Giant (Vanity)
Posted on 06/28/2012 7:54:12 AM PDT by pistolpackinpapa
One Republican Congressman, whom I believe they said was from Arizona, just said the same thing I said after this Ruling:
"Today, the Supreme Court awakened a sleeping giant. This changes the Election drastically." This has so angered people and will cause many to realize, this is no small matter. This is no game. We MUST Elect Mitt Romney, and a GOP House and Senate on November 6, 2012 so this ObamaCare Mess, our new Tax the Supremes gave us today, can be repealed and totally dismantled.
I believe this "victory" for the Obama Thug Brigade in the White House, will be short-lived. This will fire up people who were somewhat lackadaisical about this Election. We have to get the Marxist out of the White House.
It ain't over Mr. President. WE'RE JUST GETTING WARMED UP!!!
This ruling has guaranteed Obama's re-election. You can count on it. It will energize his campaign like nothing else. "See?? I'm looking after your interests and the Supreme Court agrees with me."
Don't think of this as a line in the sand or a "jump the shark moment". Think of this as just one more rivet in the liberal project known as "America". It goes back decades, perhaps centuries. There are few true conservatives left. Lots of neocons, like Bush and Cheney who's been publicly rejoicing over the "marriage" of his lesbian daughter but few who truly understand the meaning of the word as it applies to government, the military and the people.
This is not the end of America. It's just the beginning of the end.
Look forward to punitive measures against the Catholic Church for its mean refusal to pay for everyone's fornication and then an onward push into the redefinition of marriage and draconian penalties for those who refuse to be accommodating towards sexual deviance.
This will not end well.
Last night on Greta, Michelle Bachmann said that if any or all of this is upheld,they (the House and she) will work to repeal it.
What will happen now to all those suits against the government by the states over the legality of this law? Will they just be automatically be thrown out?
As Mark Levin pointed out last night, it's a shame that one person (Roberts in this case) has to power to inflict harm on the entire United States.
REPEAL AND REPLACE OBAMA.
“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.”
This has to be changed and the only way to do it is ENSURE enough republicans get elected to clean house...even if it means slick RINOS!
At least Romney loves the country and capitalism!
No, even FOX News said it was struck down. Then the Supremes said: “....but only under the Commerce Clause. It can stand as a tax.” So, cut radio dude some slack.
You are personally so much the problem with this country. Do you really think the father of socialized medicine is going to repeal Obama care. You stupid people.... You get what you deserve. Sadly, the rest of us have to live with your stupidity too. You vote for the devil’s each and every time and each and every time you think that is going to fix something. I agree with the old saying that you just can’t fix stupid.
look, the Giant may be pretty helpless and voiceless
but the Giant has a wallet and the Giant can decide here, today, to show Congress the effects on our economy of paying more taxes
the government is not going to get an extra $500 billion in “revenue” (taxes) next year and an extra $1.2 TRILLION in new taxes by 2015, by taxing “the rich”
every household needs to become its own small business
save for next years increased tax bill, start now
pay off debt
evaluate every purchase with great care
I pray that all the FReepers who hate Romney,
Don’t hate Romney but he started this entire mess with Romneycare which is what Obama based his Obamacare on....How you think Romney is better than obama is a mystery. They are both twins politically. It is you guys who should be voting for conservatives like Virgil Goode...He is truly our only hope. Romney won’t change a thing on Obamacare because he believes it is best for the country like he thought Romneycare was best for Mass...Get that through your skull.
I talked with a Republican friend on the Hill and he said that Romney will issue waivers to all 50 states on January 20, 2013, effectively nullifying Obamacare without needing 60 senators to agree to invoke cloture.
This will cause the Senate democrats to, at a minimum, negotiate the remaining parts of the bill. Taxes will be wrapped up in this as well.
Climb Mt. Nitaka.
It was what I believe Yamato said after Perl Harbor about us.
Will Romney breathe fire as Gingrich would have?? Doubtful. He’ll probably talk like Mitch McConnell, who could have stopped Obamacare in the senate but didn’t, and every republican followed the “leader.”
Well maybe this will get the GOP up off their duffs and energized for action. We just have to pray Mitt will keep his word and repeal this monstrosity.
AMEN, pistolpackinpapa! ObamaCare MUST be repealed.
Romney definitely wasn't my choice either, but the situation is what it is now. We must have a Republican president, House and Senate if there's any hope that this despicable law will be repealed.
They can send the tax man, backed by 10 ninjasuited thugs with mp5’s, to collect the “tax”,
but they really can’t do the same thing to force us to participate in the economy,
and without a growing economy, this house of cards is in the midst of crashing and burning.
Freepers....milk toast moderate Romney is our last hope. Giving $1000 to Mitt today
Or 50 votes + the VP. (No filibuster)
It just became easier.
I have a congressthing, a senaturd, a governor, an attorney general, State house and senate offices, and a handful of local candidates to vote on.
You may be sure I'll show up at the polls for that.
There might even be a local tax or bond issue or some such nonsense on the ballot ... I'll have to check.
I never miss an election.
Cannot agree with your capitulation. Your last sentence seems a Non sequitur to the rest of your post.
The SCOTUS screwed the pooch in District of Columbia v. Heller.
If they anticipated this attempt at making us helots ordered to walk under the yoke, they should have tried to pull our teeth first.
Odd - not there in Louisiana.
of course there wont be enough lettuce to go around because the lettuce growers will be heavily regulated and wont be able to charge enough to grow it all
So some folks will get taxed but won't get their lettuce. The government will decide on a “fair” system to ration lettuce.
I’m sitting here numb, nearly in tears for our country. During the convention, can we toss Romney overboard for Palin, DeMint, Gingrich or anyone of the great conservatives?
I don’t know how to post a photo - so please forgive this. Perhaps someone could post it. Look at Jon McNaughton’s painting, The Empowered Man. Look closely to see the man standing in front of the White House, holding a wrinkled copy of the constitution - see Zero holding his hands as if to say “NO”. That is US, folks - it is us standing there.
I pray for this nation and hope all will join me. Never give in and never give up.
Romney is a joke. The GOP is a joke.
God have Mercy on us.
So, then if electing a GOP Prez and GOP House and Senate is a joke, what is your solution? All you can say is “God have Mercy on us.” Well, up to this point God sure hasn’t helped our cause. Maybe God really does help those who help themselves. So, let’s hear your plan smart ass.
I agree.... starting from this point forward, there will be the low life turds geting their free obama bucks, and the rest of us paying for it.. the low life crowd and the Government employess, will grow larger and larger until the voting block will be impossible to overcome..
and then, they will run out of other peoples bucks, and that is when the hit will fit the shan.. all hell will break loose in this country..
Honestly, I can see states leaving the Union.
I’ll vote, but I see no hope whatsover for this country.
My only consolation is that I'm at the tail-end of my life and won't have to put up with it much longer. I feel sorry for my kids, and the younger generations of this country.
Amen. I'm sending him my first donation today.
I read that his campaign website took in $100,000 in the first 40 minutes after the decision.
I don’t flippin’ understand the people of my country! A major terrorist attack committed by Muslim extremists happens on our soil and what do we do? Elect an American-hating muslim sympathizer a couple years later. And YES if only those Obama voters opened their freaking eyes and invested a little in finding out who they were voting for before they pulled the lever...and then as we conservatives are fighting this horrible health care law trying to be pushed through by the “President” and really need a good conservative to fight this rogue administration what do we do but go ahead and nominate Mitt Romney! A guy who as far as I’ve heard, had created a similar law for his state as Gov.
Goodbye United States of America...RIP.
John Roberts and Anthony Kennedy must be on their way to Yale and Harvard today to be feted by their left wing puppeteers they are so eager to please.
your post gives me hope. it may be the only good that comes out of this decision today, if it motivates the anti-romney vote and illuminates the extreme urgency of this election. we need every single vote, bc obama will cheat, lie and steal this election.
“The Dems are emboldened by this “
Let them. Obama’s mandates and TAX INCREASE will be on the ballot.
“Even more reason though to make sure we get Obama and his gang of thugs voted out of office. “
This ruling was a setback but only a temporary one if we win in November.
100% REPEAL. Nothing less.
The TEA party is alive and well and fed up to the eyeballs with RINOs and the 'moderate' GOP establishment making fools of us, time and again, as happened in the primaries. The Republican convention will be the last chance to rectify this unhappy situation and if we blow it, it may well be the beginning of the end of America as we know it. I'm no cynic but this Supreme Court decision looks like it is going to usher in an era that America has never seen before - and it won't be pretty. We cannot sit on the sidelines, crying and complaining and allow this to happen while making cynical comments about how powerless we all are to stop it. We must fight - and I believe we will. It simply doesn't have to be this way.
How about a more current name for the mess...instead of Obamacare, call it what it is NOW...
A name that will live in infamy.
I know it isn’t that simple. But I believe Roberts deserves it. But for him, Obamacare would be gone.
There’s little more to say at this point.
Romney, as much as I do not like it, was correct on his answers to his Romneycare. He said it was UP TO EACH INDIVIDUAL STATE to do whatever it chooses.
This ruling causes every state AND individual damage.
I will vote for the liberal for that reason and that reason alone. He got it correct.
A general strike is in order. All truckers, all people who are opposed to this should stop all work for at least three weeks and let the GD bastards see if they can survive without anything for that while. THE GD SOBS!!!
The GOP has absolutely screwed us, and left us with no real options in this coming election.
Who are you calling “The GOP” ? We did it to ourselves like we did in 2008. The Moderates run one candidate in the Primaries. The Conservatives run 15 candidates in the Primaries. The Conservatives bite, devour and destroy each other and....... the Moderate cake walks to victory!!! HELLO!!!!! So, we have met the enemy and he is us.
You are spot on. In fact I have talked to several people and the general response has been, Oh well, what can you do? Followed by a simple shrug of the shoulders.
It's not that people don't care but rather they feel powerless to do anything about it. Quite frankly, they have a point. Every law passed that infringes on our liberty and rights, is another law that has to be dealt with. Most people just feel overwhelmed at the shear amount of work and dedication it will take to fix this.
If you send (R) to represent us, you'll get Socialism-Lite rather the the (D) version of full Socialism. You still end up with Socialism, it's just how quick you want to get there. This is further fueled by a significant part of the electorate who wants the parties to get along, compromise and get things done. So you end up with a (D) proposal for 10 trillion dollars and the (R) says we'll go with 5 trillion. You still just spent 5 trillion more than you started with but my gosh we compromised and all got along and the (D) didn't get all they wanted.
Then factor in the fact that more and more people become addicted to various entitlements. It's similar to a drug addiction and we are creating more junkies every day. This is exactly what they want you to be, just another junkie needing your fix from Uncle Sam. It's all rigged to a degree because both parties want us dependent on them or have so many laws on the books that just being alive or dead is breaking a law, otherwise they have no power over us.
Get used to this, its not going away until the federal government is physically dismantled.
How and when might that happen?
look at that chart - look at the assumptions of a “growing economy” to produce those revenues
with only 65% of the workforce, the lowest percentage in 30 years, working right now? Really?
So where do Pelosi and Reid think that extra $500 BILLION in taxes is gonna come from in 2013?
From the 4 millon new jobs they said would be “created” by obamacare? really?
I am out of the equities market as of today
Call me an idiot but I hope gold and silver crash hard, so I can buy some
... We need to fully repeal ObamaCare and enact common-sense, step-by-step reforms that protect Americans access to the care they need, from the doctor they choose, at a lower cost.
Yesterday Rush was saying Boehner was going around saying "it's not repeal and replace, it's repeal!" This sounds like repeal and replace. Obama wins, we get government health care, his or some other. The goal posts are now moved. Roberts is a coward who is afraid to rock the boat politically and Boehner is a spineless bozo, the Senate is a social club that exists to protect the status quo, and the GOP nominee is the guy who invented the individual mandate. And I should be optimistic about the chances of Obamacare going away because...?
Don't give up, fight back! This is only the beginning. Now Obama has to defend a recession, 8% unemployment for 40 months, AND the largest tax increase in American history. Good luck with that!
What I wouldn't give to have had Gingrich as our Candidate, especially on a day like today. Sadly, it is not to be.
Now we face Reality. We have one Republican and one Democrat running for POTUS. The rest of the people running are distractions, Green Party, Libertarian, whatever.
If you don't Vote for the Republican, you help the Democrat win by default. Do what you think is best, but don't accuse people here who had nothing to do with Romney securing the Republican Nomination of causing this day to come.
The Washington elite, Romney, the Supremes...they do not fear conservatives. They must learn to fear us. They are afraid of the reaction of the left. They do not fear the response from the right. We talk. We write feckless invectives on FR. We do nothing. They do not fear conservatives. We bitch and moan and do nothing. We are chiefly posturers. And then we vote the in very man who inspired the Obamacare-Liberty Death law. We are not feared. We hire a president who gives Kennedy the duty to write the education bill and praise his compromise. We are not feared. Conservatives are not feared. Now Bush gives us Roberts who writes law from his bench...Arizona, now the entire country has had its liberty removed. Roberts does not fear conservatives. The threat from Politico a few days ago, it was heard, and and Roberts threw in with leftist. This leftist court does not fear Conservatives. They must learn to fear Conservatives. They must tremble...all of them from Bonher, McConnell, the Supremes, the left....all of them. Now, how are we gonna do that? It is not our nature to be adversarial, beyond just bitching about things. Voting does not seem to make an impression. How are we gonna effect change?
You are absolutely on target. The progressives will waste no time in exerting control over citizens using the mandate tax precedence.
Scary scary scary stuff.
This election is no longer about Romney, or whining about how hes a moderate, blah blah...Its about saving the country, and making every last leftist voter SUCK IT..
Theres no time for Mittpicking...either vote Romney, or you’re with the socialists...Like W said, you are Either with us, or youre against us...
People we had better demand a candidate..and not the lesser of two evils. ..and I dont mean Ron Paul.
How do you propose we do that? It ain’t happening my friend, we have to play the f***ing hand we were dealt.
“I dont flippin understand the people of my country! A major terrorist attack committed by Muslim extremists happens on our soil and what do we do? Elect an American-hating muslim sympathizer a couple years later.”
Who later authors an executive order giving preferential treatment to currently illegal immigrants, so long as they are between 16 and 30, are students and have never been convicted of a felony. I believe that all of the 9-11 hijackers would qualify....
Why the F—K did we end up with this Fcking Rino as our nominee????? Last time there was McCain...now Romney. What is wrong with people???
“...the vast majority of the country will just go back now and resume watching American Idol.”
The cynical part of me strongly agrees with you.
