    The Supreme Court can be unconstitutional and lawless. It's done that before. Obamacare is unconstitutional on its face.

    It's time for the obscene abuse of the commerce and welfare clause to stop. The enumerated powers along with the 10th amendment is so fucking crystal clear that only a central planner could think to circumvent the original intent of a federal government with limited powers. Just because someone thinks they know what is best for others doesn't mean they have the lawful right to impose their will. Obamacare will be shot down in the SC. The alternative is unthinkable:

    If the government can make you purchase car insurance, pay into your social security retirement fund, medicare insurance, etc etc etc.., fining someone who does not purchase healthcare insurance is as legal as any of the aforementioned.

    Healthcare section?
    Its is the largest political battle this country has ever seen

    you have the judicial
    the legislative and the executive
    This will for ever change the health-care system in our country no matter what the out-come

    It also took the focus off of what we really needed to be focused with at that time, the economy

    Even if you don't own a car, they can make you buy insurance? Really?

    What human activity is not covered under the "Good and welfare" clause?
