When asked about the Constitutionality of her plans for Nationalized Healthcare, Pelosi deemed the question “not serious” and refused to respond further about the issue itself.
By that (Nancy Pelosi’s) standard, Congress could tax you at 100% and require you to wear stiletto high heels when playing basketball.
The colonies authored the Declaration of Independence because they rejected authoritarianism.
The Framer created the Constitution to protect the individual from the state. And the Constitution is the highest law in the land.
Pelosi’s inability to articulate a semblance of a response speaks volumes.
Requiring every American to purchase a good or service is unconstitutional. It’s never been done. It can’t be done. And anyone who isn’t a crackhead knows that.
If government worked as Obama and the National Socialist Democrats say it will, then why would we care about separation of powers? Why would we care about different levels of government?
Why would we care about the Constitution?
Why was this nation founded in the first place?
If government is so beneficent, so effective, so humane and compassionate, how is it that throughout all of human history, the great philosophers and thinkers were so fearful of it?
Aristotle, Cicero, Locke, Montesquieu, Edmund Burke, Adam Smith, Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, James Madison, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams and so many more.
Were they all wrong about government and Obama right?
Were they all wrong about limiting, balancing, placing checks on government? Were they all wrong about liberty?
Is human history all wrong and Obama right?
Is human history all wrong and Nancy Pelosi right?
Is human history all wrong and Harry Reid right?
Do you really think Obama, Pelosi and Reid hold a candle to the greatest thinkers civilization has ever seen?
Because for Obama to be right; and for his party, now in the hands of the radical left, to be right; the Founders had to be wrong.
For Obama to be right, the Declaration of Independence has to be wrong.
For Obama to be right, the Constitution has to be wrong.
For Obama to be right, Aristotle, Cicero, Locke, Montesquieu, Burke, Smith and the founding fathers all had to be wrong.
And so it is clear how all of this will end.
Government-run health care will be used as a tool by government officials. As these programs always are. It will be used to punish political enemies, to reward friends, to entice supporters and — always — to aggregate more power.
It must be defeated…
