The Insanity of our Supreme Court: Reported by Jack Ferm

The Supreme Court has now rewritten the constitution, what next?

The latest political ruling from the Supreme Court is not only out of sync with the constitution, but is a travesty and demonstrates that at least 5 of the nine justices should not have been elevated to this important, although currently superfluous position…

This ruling flies in the face of both the 5th and 14th Amendments to the Constitution, known as the Bill of Rights; it constitutes a taking for Private use! It is an insurance bill and for the benefit of insurance companies…

The Supreme Court, which has a history of political decisions going all the way back to the Dred Scott Decision of 1857, where  Chief Justice Roger B. Taney, declared that all blacks -- slaves as well as free -- were not and could never become citizens of the United States. The court also declared the 1820 Missouri Compromise unconstitutional, thus permitting slavery in all of the country's territories. See Dred Scott V. Sanford:

The current Obamacare decision has now out done even the most ostentatious among this courts rulings and interpretations. The current ruling, which has struck down the expansion of Medicaid to insure the poor and poverty stricken would have medical insurance, made a new determination and definition of what constitutes a tax! While still leaving some 26 million citizens unable to obtain or pay for insurance.

No Longer is a tax constrained to a revenue raising measure to support government, now a penalty or fine for not doing as we are told is also determined to be a tax.

This decision is so outrageous it makes one wonder what Roberts’ secret motive may have been? Was it to save the court from angry mobs, or to insure a backlash against Obama and insure Romney win’s the presidency?

Now the poor and poverty stricken will most likely still be without insurance while the middle class will be further reduced to the level of poverty, and many Democrats have no understanding of the full ramifications of this legislative fiat. It has put yet another nail in the coffin of democracy

If the Government now has this new power to pass any law for the benefit of Private business under the pretext of the general welfare clause, and the interstate commerce clause, why not fine us for example, for not purchasing a new automobile?

Maybe they will?
