States Rights Hook

failure should be painful and it seemingly is for Obama.

President Obama has to feel like a tired boxer hung up on the ropes with his opponent pummeling away at him. First he and his agenda took a hard blow from Republican Scott Brown’s surprising and substantial defeat of Democrat Martha Coakley for the late Ted Kennedy’s Massachusetts Senate seat.

Now the state legislatures across the nation are now pounding away at one of ObamaCare’s key provision, mandatory health insurance coverage for all Americans.

From Associated Press (AP) via Yahoo News:

Lawmakers in 34 states have filed or proposed amendments to their state constitutions or statutes rejecting health insurance mandates, according to the American Legislative Exchange Council, a nonprofit group that promotes limited government that is helping coordinate the efforts. Many of those proposals are targeted for the November ballot, assuring that health care remains a hot topic as hundreds of federal and state lawmakers face re-election.

If Scott Brown’s election could be described as a punishing body blow, then 34 out of 50 – 68% and enough, with 4 states to spare, to call a Constitutional Convention – state legislatures moving to block ObamaCare’s insurance mandate must be described as a States Rights hook and one that went straight across Obama’s chin.

Brown: The Aftermath

Sen. Scott Brown (R-MA) aka Lt. Colonel Brown, MA State National GuardNow that Republican Scott Brown has won the election to fill Massachusetts’ US Senate seat left empty by Sen. Ted Kennedy’s long overdue yet far too quick death, what will be the response from President Obama and his Liberals who currently rule Congress?

Senator Scott Brown (R-MA) breaks the Dems super-majority in the Senate and, theoretically puts the Liberals’ entire destructive, neo-Socialist agenda at immediate and significant risk.

Worse for the traitorous Left, Brown’s campaign was centered on opposition to President Obama visions for a 2nd Reconstruction of- or replacement for America – especially ObamaCare.

I’m ambivalent about how Brown ran his campaign largely as a referendum against Obama. It’s too similar to Obama’s presidential campaign, which was against Bush rather than McCain.

While I’m very happy that it worked for Brown and, by extension, Americans as a whole, I didn’t like it when Obama ran his campaign that way and I don’t like it that Brown followed suit. In my rarely humble opinion campaigns should be ran against one’s opponent, not a third party.

What exactly President Obama and his Liberals’ immediate response will be to Sen. Brown’s somewhat shocking defeat of Martha Coakley is a matter of some discussion and seems to be fraught with great deal contradictory evidence and statements by Democrat politicians.

Revolt In Massachusetts

There was a revolt, a revolution if you will, in Massachusetts this week and it ended in victory for the people of Massachusetts and even more so for we, the People of the United States of America. Republican Scott Brown defeated Democrat Martha Coakley in the January 19, 2010 special election to fill Ted Kennedy’s US Senate seat.

Both FOXNews and MSNBC confirm that Brown won 52% to 47% in an election with very high voter turnout, especially for a special election held in very inclimate weather.

Meet Senator Scott Brown (R-MA)

In his victory speech, Massachusetts’ newest US Senator, Scott Brown declared the following:

Tonight, the independent voice of Massachusetts has spoken. This Senate seat belongs to no one person, no one political party. … This is the people’s seat.

Given that registered Democrats 3:1 advantage over Republicans in the state (37% of registered voters are Democrats, 12% are Republicans) but fully 51% are unaffiliated / independent, Sen. Brown was right. The “independent voice” of Massachusetts has indeed spoken, and they have spoken against neo-Socialist agenda being furthered by the Democrats in Congress and the White House in the person of President Barack H. Obama.

Yes, there was a revolt of the People in Massachusetts and it will have both immediate and long-term consequences for the Liberals who currently try to rule America.
