Posted on 11/07/2012 1:45:24 AM PST by Maurice Tift
This summer the Supreme Court ruled that the Obama Administrations health care mandates to be constitutional as a tax. Today, the people of the state of Alabama told the Supreme Court to shove it!
In a Majority vote of 56%-44% (with 46% reported), the People of Alabama passed Amendment 6, which reads:
An amendment to the Constitution of Alabama of 1901, to prohibit any person, employer, or health care provider from being compelled to participate in any health care system.
In the weeks leading up to the vote, there were overwhelming attempts by the media and the so-called political class to make the amendment seem irrelevant.
Many were saying that the vote was of no consequence. But, voters in Alabama stood strong with their beliefs.
Only 15 minutes after the polls closed the Amendment 6, vote was off to an early lead showing 63% in favor, and support held nearly as strong throughout the final count.
Alabama is the 11th state to have passed similar legislation. Missouri and Arizona voters were first and second in 2010. But Alabama is the first to have passed it since the Supreme Court ruling this summer.

I LIKE that guy! I’m definitely moving to Texas!
The two most important things that we CAN do, 100%, is to get our children out of the godless, communist schools, and to boycott the media.
Can you imagine the message it would send if conservatives pulled their kids out of the schoolag archipelago?
We managed to homeschool one of our children all the way through. My wife sent our other daughter to govt school for the first time this year. I'm going to fight harder to get her out. The war begins at home. Remember what Jesus said about that.
I will cut off the outspoken Obama-supporting members of the family here in America.
My mom was from the UK (I've seen the disaster of national health) and my dad from Poland. I have card-carrying commies on both sides of the family overseas, so I know what communism is. And I know what communists are. My uncle, a labor union leader, is a sewer rat.
I will be more outspoken about politics. "Are you a Republican or a communist?", etc.
I'm also considering moving to a red state, especially one that will fight Obamacare.
Most importantly, I have to improve my prayer life.
And... I'm also looking for suggestions. I'm going to turn my negative energy in a positive direction.
The effect of not having a federally funded women’s health program in the state has been exactly nil. Will be an interesting 4 years.
I was wrong about Perry. I didn’t think he had the balls to stand up to Obamacare. But, he’s been awesome. His AG is presently held up in court trying to finish off PP.
God Bless You. I have little family, but most all live in the same or neighboring red states of Indiana and Kentucky. Advice...don’t move to Kentucky. It votes Republican for national offices(except here in Louisville), but votes mostly Democrat at state levels(they want both guns and welfare...go figure).
Alot of discussion about moving to Texas. I fear Texas will eventually go blue(out of control border). Idaho, Montana, or Wyoming or the Dakotas are promising. One warning about Wyoming....I love the area but it’s the closest thing to being on the moon you’ll ever imagine in North America. Rural isn’t the word for Wyoming......absolute desolation is more like it. There are more prong horn deer in Wyoming than there are people. Good Luck.
Go to Alabama or Mississippi . With their history, who would have ever thought that these would be the most free states of the union. Is Secession an option?
“move to RED states now.”
Yes! Concentrating our forces into secure areas is a good start. From there we can build out and take more territory. Confronting the criminal fascist syndicate with 25 strong patriot states is a nightmare that the leftists are incapable of handling. It’s time to start the harassment of the fascist federal bureaucrats to find their weaknesses and exploit them.
You get Federally run exchanges instead.
This is a “win”?
Liberals don’t have kids... too messy, too disruptive in their latte lives.
They simply indoctrinate the kids that YOU have and support.
I'm thinking about Idaho, eventually. The conservative members of the family, living in MA, CT, and NJ are nearing retirement age, and we're looking for a place to settle together.
We'll survive in clans. Those without family are going to be wards of the state. Sad.
Actually you are wrong. This is now the direction that the country is on. Increasing direct confrontation between the states and the Feds in court and open defiance by the states. This will be followed by regional alliances of states as they join forces to resist federal mandates. Eventually their will be a confrontation between federal law enforcement and state law enforcement. Where it goes from there is a good question.
Yep. I voted for it. We have to find ways like this to go aound the feds or at a minimum thumb our noses at them.
