But where will we be when the dust has settled?
Darrell L. Castle, 2008 vice-presidential candidate for the Constitution Party, has written an article for the Constitution Party entitled “THE SUPREME COURT HAS SPOKEN”. His middle paragraph clearly sums up the state of our government under an army of shyster lawyers.
“This is not the end of the Constitution as some have said. Instead, it is an indication that the Constitution died a while back in the hearts and minds of many of the American people and their leaders. The Constitution ended when Congress and the American people refused to hold Presidents accountable for their violations of the rule of law. When a President openly announces that the law does not apply to him, and that he is free to make war without consulting Congress, and that he is free to kill or imprison without trial anyone he wants, then the Constitution is dead. The Constitution as the rule of coherent law in America has been replaced by armed force and in the case of Obamacare by armed robbery. If a robber stops you on the street, puts a gun to your head and demands your money, you might give it to him to avoid being shot. When the robber demands your money, you would probably feel no better, no less threatened if he explained that he needed the money for people less fortunate than you or for some other good cause. No, armed robbery is a crime in America unless it is committed by the government and then it’s a tax.”
He accurately points out that this “tax” will only be paid by the half of the population already earning enough money to pay income tax. This is unconstitutional redistribution of wealth, pure and simple. The insanity of what the government calls “affordable health care” should be crystal clear to everyone. It’s not affordable. We can’t afford it. Where will the money come from? But apparently, the have-nots, the illegals, the irresponsible and the envious consider health care their right, and our socialist/communist government feels obligated to provide this right. They don’t worry about who has to pay for it. To them, the increasingly strapped American taxpayer is its deep pockets. What a laugh.
Our national debt is closing in on $16 trillion. Our gross national product is half a billion dollars less than that. How can a debt like that ever be paid? It can’t. All you can do is make interest payments, and the debt just keeps growing. The only solution is to substantially slash government expenditures. But the shysters aren’t willing to do that. So a behemoth government has a strangle hold on the economy. They’re killing us. And when we’re almost dead, they’ll offer to “save” us.
Freedom is now in shackles, but the price of government “salvation” will be the crucifixion of freedom. That will pretty much be the end of the road. Enjoy the ride.
