Unconstitutional Mandate

President Obama and his Liberals who are currently ruling in Congress have never come up with an actual answer to the question of by what authority do they believe that they have the right to force Americans to purchase health insurance – or any other product for that matter as a precondition of legally living in America.

This question of whether or not the government the right to mandate such purchases is not a new question. Americans were under a similar threat in the 1990s when it was ObamaCare’s predecessor, HillaryCare that the traitorous Left was trying to ram down Americans’ throats.

Excerpt from the Congressional Budget Office’s Memorandum, The Budgetary Treatment Of An Individual Mandate To Buy Health Insurance, circa August, 1994.


A mandate requiring all individuals to purchase health insurance would be an unprecedented form of federal action. The government has never required people to buy any good or service as a condition of lawful residence in the United States. An individual mandate would have two features that, in combination, would make it unique. First, it would impose a duty on individuals as members of society. Second, it would require people to purchase a specific service that would be heavily regulated by the federal government.

Federal mandates typically apply to people as parties to economic transactions, rather than as members of society. For example, the section of the Americans with Disabilities Act that requires restaurants to make their facilities accessible to persons with disabilities applies to people who own restaurants. The Federal Labor Standards Act prohibits employers from paying less than the federal minimum wage. This prohibition pertains to individuals who employ others. Federal environmental statutes and regulations that require firms to meet pollution control standards and use specific technologies apply to companies that engage in specific lines of business or use particular production processes. Federal mandates that apply to individuals as members of society are extremely rare. One example is the requirement that draft-age men register with the Selective Service System. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) is not aware of any others imposed by current federal law.

Of course one cannot expect differently from misborn filth like Obama, Reid, Pelosi, and their followers. In whatever passes for their hearts they are not only not Americans, but have a deep and abiding hatred of America and all it has ever stood for. It should come as no surprise that these enemies of America would metaphorically wipe their asses the US Constitution in order to further consolidate their hold on power and to “rebuild” America in a foul and twisted mockery of what it has been.

So what can Americans do about this? How can we defend ourselves, our children, and the fabric of our nation against these domestic enemies and the abhorrent filth they have insinuated into the federal government?

Shall we Americans hope that John L. Perry’s prediction is correct and that our military will remember and adhere to the oaths that they have sworn before their God(s)?

I, _____ (NAME), having been appointed an officer in the Army of the United States, as indicated above in the grade of _____(RANK) do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign or domestic, that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservations or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office upon which I am about to enter; So help me God!

That would be a sad and harsh thing to hope for or to have happen. It may well be necessary in the light of the current situation, but the ramifications of such an event are staggering.

I think it would be better – though that’s not saying much – if Americans took matters into their own hands to end the threat. We Americans still have the means to do so, both through the much preferred legal efforts and – as a last resort if the Liberals and their filth continue to ignore such methods – through more direct means.

Keep your eyes open. Travel light but load heavy, and always put another round in the enemy after they’re down. 😉

    For Congress to spend ANY money on “healthcare” is un-Constitutional; not in Article I, Section 8. Republicans (with the exception of Ron Paul) total hypocrites on the Constitution issue; they continue to support Medicare, Medicaid, etc.; most voted for Bush’s un-Constitutional Medicare prescription drugs entitlement program boondoggle.

    Mr. Lofton,

    While I’m not in favor of Medicare, Medicaid,etc… no litigant challenging their existence has ever challenged their constitutionality. This is because those program’s financing mechanisms proceed under the taxing and spending powers, together with the commerce clause.

    That is quite different from Congress usurping powers not granted to it – and specifically denied to it – to force Americans to purchase a product or service as condition to living in the country.
