Posts Tagged ‘Constitution’

This week the DOJ (Dept of Justice) has come out and stated the health-care mandate (the one that states everyone must have insurance) is a tax. This appears to be their stance because that is the only way to apply any constitutionality to the mandate. Interestingly enough the President is stating it is not a tax in a recent New York Times article.

“For us to say that you’ve got to take a responsibility to get health insurance is absolutely not a tax increase,” the president said last September, in a spirited exchange with George Stephanopoulos on the ABC News program “This Week.”

The presidents response feeds into all the legislation being presented by this administration. They feel it is their right to mandate behavior and the long lived American right to make our own decisions is offensive to this progressive movement.

This same mentality is evident in the Cap and Trade legislation, the recently passed fiscal reform bill as well as the many spending bills that have hit congress in this administration and even the Bush administration.

writes a great article on the widening class system developing in America.

Never has there been so little diversity within America’s upper crust. Always, in America as elsewhere, some people have been wealthier and more powerful than others. But until our own time America’s upper crust was a mixture of people who had gained prominence in a variety of ways, who drew their money and status from different sources and were not predictably of one mind on any given matter. The Boston Brahmins, the New York financiers, the land barons of California, Texas, and Florida, the industrialists of Pittsburgh, the Southern aristocracy, and the hardscrabble politicians who made it big in Chicago or Memphis had little contact with one another. Few had much contact with government, and “bureaucrat” was a dirty word for all. So was “social engineering.” Nor had the schools and universities that formed yesterday’s upper crust imposed a single orthodoxy about the origins of man, about American history, and about how America should be governed. All that has changed.

While the American people truly embrace diversity those in power do their best to keep us fighting amongst each other so that they can solidify their kingship.

On this most patriotic of American holidays I wish to share some encouragement for traditionalists and constitutionalists.

I just watched David Barton of Wallbuilders and he shared some wonderful news:

  • There are 4 prayer meetings held by members of congress
  • There is a Christian Caucus that prays before every session of congress
  • 88% of the millennial generation believe in the constitution

Remember there are actually constitutionalists than progressives we have just been quieter. When all else fails STAND!

Below is a powerful reminder of the meaning of our pledge

“If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace.” ~Thomas Paine

As for me an my house we will serve the Lord

Judge Andrew Napolitano calls on Americans to stand for freedom

“Ask your member of congress…where in the constitution is it authorized for the federal government to regulate health care? They will not be able to answer that question.”
