The repeal Obamacare petition
Obamacare in one step turns us into an unfree country ruled by an unrestrained leftist government, a government that can deprive us of our property and our liberty—that can do essentially anything it likes to us—in the name of the equal satisfaction of all human needs and desires. And I mean all desires. Should you be forced, on pain of fine and imprisonment, to purchase health insurance, in order to enable the insurance company to pay for a child molester’s purchase of a prescription drug that gives him an erection? Obamacare says yes. Sen. Max “Bacchus” confirmed as much today in the U.S. Senate in rejecting Sen. Coburn’s amendment.
To save America, Obamacare must be killed. That could and should happen through a Supreme Court decision overturning key parts of the act as unconstitutional, and thus rendering the rest of the act unworkable. But if the unimaginable occurs and the Court approves this lawless law, if the Court in effect declares that the U.S. Constitution, far from enumerating and limiting Congress’ powers, gives Congress unenumerated and unlimited powers, then the only remaining recourse, short of revolution, is repeal.
To help advance that goal, you can sign the Repeal ObamaCare Petition. It goes as follows:
I hereby pledge to support with my time, money, and vote only those candidates who vow to repeal President Obama’s health care takeover.
That is an excellent statement and also a litmus test that I think all genuine conservatives, regardless of their differences on other issues, would agree with. Obamacare cannot be overturned unless Republican congressional candidates are committed to repealing it. And the only way to make sure they have such a commitment is to say that we will not support them, unless they make a public vow to repeal. All other issues, as important as they are, are dwarfed next to this. If Obamacare stands, we will have become a helpless, demoralized people, weltering like the Europeans under an all-encompassing, unaccountable state, and we won’t be able to solve our other problems, simply because we will no longer possess the political freedom and force to do so.
