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and a GOP House and Senate on November 6, 2012 so this ObamaCare Mess, our new Tax the Supremes gave us today, can be repealed and totally dismantled.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!!!
Its a slim reed but I don't see any other option.
I’m one the hate Romney crowd (voted for Paul in the primaries) that will now swallow my vomit and donate to Romney’s campaign. I’m sickened that the Supreme Court just gave the federal government unlimited power so as to even allow it to force Americans to buy insurance or pay a fine. Sickening!
I hope so. Will you Anybody-but-Romney folks still sit out the election or throw your vote away?
ROmney? Remember Romneycare? The guys who wrote Romneycare helped with 0bastardcare.
We’re freaking doomed.
For the first time in my adult life, I’m ashamed of my country.
From Speaker Boehner:
We dont have to accept ObamaCare, and its fees, tax hikes and jobs-destroying mandates. We need to fully repeal ObamaCare and enact common-sense, step-by-step reforms that protect Americans access to the care they need, from the doctor they choose, at a lower cost.
Obozo prepping legions of lawyers to contest the election.
He’z gonna go Chicago on us and tie up the election for months.
Where the hell is Mitt Romney. He needs to call a press conference and at least pretend to be a conservative.
Anyone who does not vote against Obama is now officially an enemy of the United States.
I wasn’t going to vote for Romney, pledged against it in fact. I will vote for him now, even though I live in MA and it likely won’t matter electorally. I may even vote for Brown.
A lot of congressmen will use the Supreme Court ruling as cover to not repeal Obamacare at the beginning of the next congress. We need a landslide victory in overwhelming numbers, sweeping conservatives into office nationwide to get it done (and sweeping Boehner and McConnell out of their leadership posts would help).
Conservatives needed to wake up during the Bush years. Roberts was a Bush appointee.
The country is sliding away. It is really too late. Romney is not going to save The Republic.
So..we lost big in the Supreme Court. The answer is elect Romney (obama-lite) and rename obamacare as romneycare and everything will be alright. We had better demand that the GOP give us a leader!!
This country has been going to hell for a long time. Today they finally put the tombstone over the grave.
The Dems are emboldened by this and it wouldn’t surprise me if those in the house change their mind about voting Holder in contempt. Wouldn’t even surprise me if the GOP chickens out now and doesn’t hold the vote. Even more reason though to make sure we get Obama and his gang of thugs voted out of office. Then focus on holding Romney’s feet to the fire to move this country back toward the right.
... and filled him with a terrible resolve!
Let us make sure that in November and after - they feel the results of our “terrible resolve”.
A new Congress and a new President can undo this “tax” and the ‘socialization/ fascist accord’ of health care crony capitalism/ government takeover.
This insult MUST be answered by the American electorate in November - we must in this instance speak with one voice - and that is NOT to throw away your vote in prideful vanity in order to prove to yourself how “pure” your ideology is.
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..
Just as important we need to win a majority in the Senate and especially get rid of McConnell and replace him with DeMint.
We are so screwed. Left with a candidate who started Romneycare.
The Charlotte Bobcats have a better chance of winning next year's NBA title, than that happening.
Don’t forget a DOJ that is trying to block both VOTER ID and the purging of voter rolls and illegal amnesty voters Obama deemed citizens.
Voting doesn’t have nearly the importance we keep claiming anymore as the 2010 elections haven’t done a whole hell of a lot since Obama just rules from the throne.
John Roberts will go down in infamy as being responsible for opening the door to Civil War II...
A sad day for me as the father of three young kids.
All because you are surprised by this ruling? Naw, still no sale. Thanks for the rousing speech though.
” It is really too late. Romney is not going to save The Republic.”
I can’t be the first one to call you “Negative Nellie”, can I?
Did Speaker Boehner say that AFTER the Ruling?
With this absolutely REDICULOUS decision, the Supreme Court has expanded Federal Governmental Power to unprecidented proportions.
It is now according to this court, completely constitutional for the federal government to force you to buy anything or face a penalty under law.
You can now be forced to buy a gun, buy a lottery ticket, buy a head of lettuce, buy an iPad, buy a new car, buy a trip to borneo regardless of whether you want, need, or even can afford it, or face being “taxed” and potentially thrown in jail.
This decision is unconscionable and indefensible, and defies every concept this nation was founded upon.
NOW THIS IS PERSONAL! It is IMPERATIVE, ABSOLUTELY IMPERATIVE EVERY SINGLE DEMOCRAT IN CONGRESS IS THROWN OUT! THIS LAW NEEDS GONE DAY ONE, and IMPEACHMENT PROCEDINGS NEED BEGUN AGAINST MEMBERS OF THIS COURT!
No one who has read the Federalist Papers can remotely claim that the government created by the constituion allows such.
THIS IS NOW PERSONAL, THIS IS NOW THE POINT WHERE THIS GOVERNMENT IS CHANGED OR ABOLISHED.... IT STARTS TODAY.
Yes, all those Bush Bot, who refused to listen when we warned he was not conservative. Hope they are happy.
I live in Arizona. Just pulling up to work, I hard one of our local radio personalities, Barry Young, say that the individual mandate was struck down. Elated, I go into work. I tell my fellow conservs at work. Minutes later, I hear that it was actually upheld 6-3. Barry Young should be fired.
That is all.
