Liberty Re-defined by John Roberts

According to Roberts' ruling, "liberty" is maintained as long as there is a choice between complying or paying a tax. Roberts claims as long as that choice exists, the government is not compelling persons to buy a product or service. What he overlooks is that by defining the choices, the liberty to seek other choices is eviscerated, and the Constitution no longer seeks to Secure the Blessings of Liberty.

Liberty per Roberts: Do as I say, or pay a tax. You are free to choose.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

Roberts, and all signers of the majority opinion, are due impeachment for failure to safeguard constitutional intent as stated in the Preamble.

Impeachment

would suit them just fine. A nice months-long circus distraction for the sheeple, boob toob "opinion-makers" and other windbags and in the end nothing will happen and nothing will change.
The system is rigged for this. The political class love stuff like impeachment. It assures the sheeple that the "system works" and their "voices are heard".

I'm just wondering, how many people are fighting back but the stories are buried and hushed up so the rabble don't start getting ideas.

Trojan horse?

Posted on a similar thread, but also relevant here: This article by Amanda Read brings a refreshing perspective to the ruling.

Yes, I think so, too.

And the young lady who wrote it is a college student. Cudos to Amanda Read.

I Don't Get It

If the feds can tax/penalize citizens for not having health insurance, why can't they tax/penalize states for not complying with Medicaid expansion requirements?

Impeachment Indeed !!

But how in practice does it happen to impeach supreme court justices ? Anyone knows ? There should be a drive to gather signatures or something to impeach Roberts at least and all the other 4 statists who would no doubt rubberstamp the most egregious legislations in the future

Has to start in the "House"

The people have to provide courage for their reps.
(we so don't understand how to use the power we have in the "House")

Undo what Wilson did

Some choice: Pay the tax or go to jail!

We should give Roberts a choice: Leave town or face the consequences.

I really think that's where we should be focused.

Having this ruling on the books, whether it's used today or in 10 years doesn't matter. It's a ruling on the books, and it will be used.

They are a very shameful bunch
