The Founders On ObamaCare

As we witness the Marxist-Terrorists known as the Democrats butcher our Constitution and turn the Law of the the land on its’ head, one dominant question is in my mind. 

Does our Constitution allow the Democrats in the Executive and Legislative branches to confer authority upon the federal government to exercise control of our healthcare?

The Founders of this nation and framers of our Constitution were crystal clear about exactly what authority the Feds have, as well as, what limits are placed upon the central government.

James Madison, our Constitution’s primary author, wrote,

“The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined [and] will be exercised principally on external objects, as war, peace, negotiation and foreign commerce.  If Congress can do whatever in their discretion can be done by money, and will promote the General Welfare, the Government is no longer a limited one, possessing enumerated powers, but an indefinite one, subject to particular exceptions.”

Similarly, Thomas Jefferson asserted:

“[G]iving [Congress] a distinct and independent power to do any act they please which may be good for the Union, would render all the preceding and subsequent enumerations of power completely useless. It would reduce the whole [Constitution] to a single phrase, that of instituting a Congress with power to do whatever would be for the good of the United States; and as sole judges of the good or evil, it would be also a power to do whatever evil they please. Certainly, no such universal power was meant to be given them. [The Constitution] was intended to lace them up straightly within the enumerated powers and those without which, as means, these powers could not be carried into effect.”

Clearly, our Constitution does NOT authorize Congress to nationalize health care, anymore than it authorizes Congress to take over General Motors or any other private entities.

The follow-on question should be apparent: 

At what point will this stop and who will put a stop to it?

The answers to the foregoing question still remain to be seen.  What we do know is that what we are witnessing is unprecedented, highly unethical, very illegal and wholly corrupt.  Do not forget what is happening here.  Next November will be crucial as will the elections in 2012 and beyond.  The Democrats are hoping people will forget their transgressions like they always have, but I’m not so sure their hope will come to pass this time.

Wake up, stay alert and keep your “powder” dry.  We have a constitutional crisis coming, as well as, a deeper dip in the economic cycle that could be the perfect recipe for a larger social crisis that could very likely be seen as an opportunity by our Marxist-Terrorists in the Democrat Party to seize even more power.

See you on the battlefield.
