    SNIP:
    Washington has broken with concept of self-governance

    The Supreme Court’s Obamacare ruling on Thursday cuts right to the very fabric of the relationship between a once-limited government and a once-free citizen, but the eternal struggle between liberty and tyranny endures. It is a beginning, not an end.

    As enormously important as the high court’s Obamacare ruling is - and it’s huge - it’s not the final word. The legal and political dust has not yet settled, and it will take some time for the unpredictable ripples to form the powerful waves of history. Yet, history waits for no man, so we begin by asking: What now?

    First, we mourn. We mourn that a nation built on the principle of limited government has grown the largest government in the history of humankind. We mourn that our Supreme Court rewrote Obamacare into Obamatax to allow for the individual mandate. We mourn that once again we read the lips of a president who promised he would not raise our taxes but did so anyway. We mourn that Washington no longer rules with the consent of the governed.

    It’s now down to this: If Barack Obama holds the White House, and if Democrats win control of either house of Congress, then Obamacare will be unstoppable, and America will become the United States of Europe. We will have sacrificed our freedom and our exceptionalism for the false promises of the government-centered society. The 2012 election just became infinitely more important.

    Yes, the voters will save America on 6Nov12. By re-electing Barack Obama for a second term as President. And, I hope, by maintaining a Democratic majority in the Senate, and pitching the Teabagger fools in the House out on their ears.

    There is part of me that agrees with the OP but there is that other part that says voting doesn't matter nothing will change it's an on going struggle and old rocks post is a good example of how stupid America is. Dumb asses will vote for failure for those little bells and whistles that will not last long.

    Yes, and guys like you were saying the same of Social Security prior to WW2. How has that worked out. You like the idea of 750,000 American families going bankrupt because of medical bills every year? That your definition of fun and games?

    Without social security Clinton wouldn't have been able to claim a surplus. Just keep thinking Social security as is, is a good thing it's a ponzi scheme

    You should educate yourself, Rocks. Here's an old article from 2009 that will get you started.

    The 81% Tax Increase - Forbes.com
    Yep, everything is just fine and dandy!!
