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 Øbama does, in fact, have new clothes.

Instead of assessing Øbamacare 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.

Judicial Activism vs. Unconstitutionalism

2 April 2012

Oh, boy – a rarity. Two Pateratic posts in one day.

The would-be dictator at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue cautions that, should the Supreme Court rightfully reject the individual mandate and, with it, Øbamacare, that they will have been guilty of judicial activism.

Really?!

By doing what they’re supposed to do – defend the constitution – they are activist in his eyes. While, I guess, redefining the Constitution through, say, Roe v Wade isn’t? Redefining marriage from what it has been for literally millenia is not judicial activism? Overturning results in which the majority of the people have made a decision is not judicial activism, but overturning a decision made merely by the majority of congressmen would be? Of course! It’s only judicial activism when it doesn’t suit his purposes.

And, I suppose, an executive branch that ignores constitutional limits – and the court and congress that lets him get away with it – are not activist, either?

What kind of twisted logic is this jackass operating under?

In any case, if The Supremes do not overturn Øbamacare, then it is up to we, the people. This must not stand. The individual mandate in Øbamacare removes any limit from what the federal government can do to us under interpretation of the Constitution today. It must not stand!
