    The defeat of Obamacare may be the clearest statement to liberals in decades that ours is a limited government with only a few enumerated powers. Our founders did in fact give us freedom from big liberal government. This is something liberals have long lacked the IQ to understand. Its possible that the current court case will awaken them to the idea of what America is really all about, and to the anti-American quality of liberalism in general.

    This case is exciting because it will set precident no matter which way it goes.
    Upheld: Tyranny wins, and the government will have a free pass to force citizens to do anything.
    Overturned: Blow to Tyranny, and the commerce clause gets redefined again (even though it's only purpose was to ban interstate tariffs in the first place).

    yes, it was designed to protect and promote Republican free trade while we have let it come to promote liberal socialism. Its been perverse indeed but perhaps now the pendulum will begin to swing back toward common sense.

    you joking? Capitalism and corporatism are vastly different. The left is for corporatism, thus the government getting involved with corporations so much. The non-neocon right is for capitalism, something this country hasn't had since the federal reserve act.

    a liberal will lack the IQ to know that a Republican government is small and so lacks the power and will to pick or favor one corporation over another, while a liberal governemt is the exact opposite. BOcare and Solyndra are perfect examples.
