The Constitution Is Dead

28 June 2012
Mourning the Constitution, and damning the supreme cowards…

Well, that’s it, then. The supreme court has sold out the constitution and with it: all of us. Welcome to the USSA. Cancel the election. Emperor Ă˜bama does, in fact, have new clothes.

Instead of assessing Ă˜bamacare against the constitution on its own merits as written, the supreme cowards made the administration’s arguments for them – though again and again, the administration asserted that the individual mandate was not  a tax. In fact, I fail to see how mandating an individual citizen to buy a product can be construed as anything but a tax in the first place! 

This goes against everything the founding fathers stood for. And for all you 99%ers out there high-fiving and clapping each other on the back: you will regret this – just as the Canadian and British citizens have come to regret their version of the same Marxist premise.

Atlas has indeed shrugged today. And the rule of law is dead.
