Skip to comments.The SCOTUS Just Woke Up a Sleeping Giant (Vanity)
Posted on 06/28/2012 7:54:12 AM PDT by pistolpackinpapa
One Republican Congressman, whom I believe they said was from Arizona, just said the same thing I said after this Ruling:
"Today, the Supreme Court awakened a sleeping giant. This changes the Election drastically." This has so angered people and will cause many to realize, this is no small matter. This is no game. We MUST Elect Mitt Romney, and a GOP House and Senate on November 6, 2012 so this ObamaCare Mess, our new Tax the Supremes gave us today, can be repealed and totally dismantled.
I believe this "victory" for the Obama Thug Brigade in the White House, will be short-lived. This will fire up people who were somewhat lackadaisical about this Election. We have to get the Marxist out of the White House.
It ain't over Mr. President. WE'RE JUST GETTING WARMED UP!!!
No they didn't, the vast majority of the country will just go back now and resume watching American Idol.
Gee, Juan Williams on Fox News said that people will just forget about it in a couple of days.
I’m really going to have to hold my nose to vote for that creep.
Where’s Sheriff Arpaio when you need him? We need him to unload some dirt on Obama.
We have no country. It has been stolen by obama and roberts.
if it iis a tax then 51 senate votes can repeal it
If Romney does not jump on this with both feet, he will lose any chance of getting the conservative vote.
If he is smart, well advised and wants to win at all costs, he will at least do to Obamacare what Obama did to immigration (no enforcement).
Romney has a chance right now...to make a very clear statement about how he is going to repeal this.
But watch...he will show that he will weasel his way out of this...he will say SCOTUS has ruled...we can’t change that.
For the first time in my adult life, Im ashamed of my country.”
I really NOW wish the Confederates had won.
American flag is officially coming off my house. What the hell is the point of flying a logo for a government that does not exist as written?
You can count on me to vote against Obama, against Romney and against any other liberal you might like. I might reconsider voting against Romney if he expressly repudiates Romneycare and promises to get the federal government completely out of the health care system.
Romney is like Roberts. Go ahead and vote for him but you can’t be assured of anything good coming out of it.
Nice try n00b, but this is delusions of grabdeur ... the sheeple gave up their sovereignty and now the oligarchs are exploiting the vacuum.
IMHO, Justice Roberts was playing chess. It was a strategic move. Now Obamacare goes back to Congress, budgets originate from the House, Romney has enough fodder to campaign on from now until 2020. Agreed, ANYONE who stays home in November has voted FOR Obamacare.
It looks BAD, but the Chief Justice is no dummy.
As appaling as Roberts decision was he may have done us a favor in the long run as this decision could doom obama in November if we, the GOP and Romney play it correctly. There is so much to bludgeon obama and the rats over the head with and American opinion is on our side. Its just a matter of fighting right and fighting hard. I always thought this was a lose/lose for mullad obama
Yes, we are.
Im one the hate Romney crowd.....that will now swallow my vomit and donate to Romneys campaign.
I do not think it is too late. Yes, we have Romney, but there is also the Tea Party. Support them so we can get the kind of candidates that will hold RINOS’s feet to the fire!!
I'm wondering if he already has. All the threats before this vote makes me wonder if he didn't “get to” Roberts. This is Roberts’ 2nd anti-constitutional vote this week. Doesn't make sense.
I can’t believe that on two high profile cases, Arizona immigration and Obamacare, that Roberts has gone liberal on us.
Why is it that conservative judges can become liberal, but the liberal judges never become conservative?
This case expands the powers of the federal government. This case will be used as legal precedent for expanding federal powers in other areas, not just healthcare. Count on it.
we need a constitutional amendment that states “the only authorized tax/taxing power is XXXX”
either a flat sales tax or flat income tax...with a fixed rate in the amendment and an section that requires a balanced budget...tie all three branches of government’s hands
kills a lot of birds with one stone...no more of these asinine rulings, no shenanigans with raising the tax rate, etc...
any changes would have to be by constitutional amendment
therefore congress and the executive could never again run up a deficit and screw us with tax increases
where have i heard that sleeping giant quote before..its not working..the constitution was gutted today..thats it...its all over..
