The United Slaves of America

"There is no worse tyranny than to force a man to pay for what he does not want merely because you think it would be good for him." – Robert A. Heinlein

Today the United States Supreme Court allowed the expansion of government over not just actions but the lack of them. Going forward, not only can actions be taxed, but the lack of an action can be compelled by taxation or imprisonment. This is blatant tyranny, indeed it is slavery to the whim of Congress and the dictates of the imperial Presidency. Let me re-phrase that:

Congress may now pass laws forcing you to ACT. If you refuse, you may legally be FINED and/or IMPRISONED. YOU ARE A SLAVE. You may not “opt out” without penalty.

Many have warned of the loss of Liberty, of the destruction of Law, the prevalence of corruption. We see it every institution of our society. The manipulation of government for private ends has reached a zenith not seen since the creation of the Federal Reserve. Now, in addition to a currency controlled and manipulated by private interests for private gains at the expense of the public, we have a health care system re-born as the bastard child of socialists and giant insurance companies. You do not even have the choice of not participating – it’s mandatory.

In 1864, the Republican Party began the process of passing the 13th Amendment to the United States Constitution. It was part of the Platform of the Party, and it was finally sent to the states on the last day of January, 1865. It took until December to pass a sufficient number of states and become law. It reads:

Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

Today, the Republican Party must rise up once again and throw off this new master – the Federal Government. The chains of oppression are constructed of debt and obligation, incurred by evil men blind to the Rights of their Brothers. At all levels of government, we must overthrow those who would enslave us. Any expansion of the State must be met with a cry for Liberty, while we still have the ability to do so.

"In questions of power, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution" – Thomas Jefferson

Yet another blog that ends in a whimper.

Do you honestly think CRYING for Liberty is going to do a damned bit of good?

Please, tell us, what WORDS are going to stop these thugs?

If caught in a back alley in the seedy part of town and finding yourself being methodically closed in upon by gang members wielding pipes, chains, and other implements all staring at you, even point at you and coming towards you in a menacing fashion, are you going to try to TALK them out of beating you senseless?

How is the behavior of people in government today any LESS than what this scenario describes?

Remember, YOU chose the word "enslavement."

If someone is trying to enslave you, do you really think you can talk them out of doing so?

Or, is this not as serious as attempted enslavement after all?

Steve Dickson's picture

The choice here is peaceful or violent resistance.

I choose peaceful. Having done so, the choice becomes change the system from within or outside. I choose inside. I am a 41 year old married father of 4, who has a degree, a job, a big house with a big mortgage, no tattoos and I look good in a suit. I CAN pass for establishment, therefore it makes sense for me to use the system against itself. That is obviously not always the case. Do it like the left does - you know, "bottom up, top down, inside out." It works for them.

We CAN take over the GOP. In my opinion it is the fastest way to begin fixing thIngs in a peaceful way, so I choose it. By all means choose your own path to resistance, but RESIST.

Also, try using logic instead of mockery when you disagree with tactics but are basically on the same philosophical side. It's more persuasive.

An article that needed to be

An article that needed to be written. The word enslave is a word that should be used, but when it is, explain it, because it, as any word, will lose its impact if it is without description or explanation, or both. Good work, Steve.

Snort! The Republican Party is going to rise up

and throw off shackles?? Yeah, any remaining ties to honesty, limited government, and any pretense at being anything other than a faked up commie controlled opposition foil for the commie Dems.

For me

the Health-care act is the line in the sand: I refuse to be coerced into fascist policies and will defend my rights accordingly

Good luck

It's going to be enforced thru your tax return.......meaning, you're gonna be going up against the worst goons they can throw at you, the US government's version of the Gestapo, the IRS. Good luck and God bless.

Will people go to the doctor more just because they are paying

for insurance and might as well use it?

I usually avoid places where sick people hang out but others probably will go more often.

And other people will realize that the medical system is crumbling and avoid it even more steadfastly, providing a small amount of balance.

Will diseases contracted in hospitals, like staph infections, become an epidemic?

Many Doctors Are Leaving

They are retiring if possible. Have seen this firsthand, there is a mass exodus of MDs from their practices, closing up shop during the last year or so.
These are Doctors who've been in practice for many years, who probably remember what it was like before the Malpractice Insurance Era that we are in today.
When any industry loses their experienced members there is a loss that is incalculable regarding the expertise that took years to hone.

We will all suffer from this additional casualty another result of ObamaCare.

Nullify our US Citizenship?

Can we opt out by throwing away our citizenship? They do now have the right to revoke it anyways. I am ready to beat feet outta here before they break in my door, immunize me, pepper spray, taze, torture and send me to jail or indefinite detention, for being a dissident. I'm about ready to say "No Habla Ingles!" and get deported. LOL
