Obamacare declared unconstitutional

Liberty has returned to America, at least temporarily.  A federal judge ruled that Congress does not have authority granted by the US Constitution to regulate individuals who choose not to partake in interstate commerce, either directly or indirectly.  If Congress had the authority to compel citizens to purchase products from private companies, then the limits of the federal government will have been completely eviscerated.  Interestingly, the federal judge noted that the Obamacare law does not have a severability clause.  He wrote: “Because the individual mandate is unconstitutional and not severable, the entire Act must be declared void. This has been a difficult decision to reach, and I am aware that it will have indeterminable implications.”

Great day to be an American!

Comparison between UK socialist health care and capitalist American care

Remarkable statistics from the United Nations International Health Organization: "The percentage of people who survived cancer five years after diagnosis: U.S. 65%, U.K. 46%; diagnosed with diabetes who received treatment within six months: U.S.93%, U.K. 15%; seniors needing hip replacement who received it within six months: U.S. 90%, U.K. 15%; getting to see a medical specialist within one month: U.S.77%, U.K.40%." (Hat tip: Phyllis Schafly, published in Investor's Business Daily).

Obama's State of the Union Address: Pretend to be a Conservative

Obama is pretending to be someone he is not in this State of the Union address. He has suggested that he wants to lower corporate income taxes and to rein in "frivolous lawsuits" against health care providers.

Does he really care about either of these issues? NO!

This is a great line to provide in a nationwide speech that a broad swath of Americans are listening to. But will he act upon any of these principles?  No.  It's just another Obama speech, meant to be purely symbolic, but which translates into little or no action.

Americans approve of GOP Congress

Americans have a much more positive view of the Republican-led Congress, and they just recently were sworn into office on January 5.  The approval rating of Congress has recently risen from 13% to 20%.  That might not seem like a huge difference, but that’s nearly a 55% change!  Americans also like Speaker of the House, John Boehner.   He has a public approval rating of 42%.  By contrast, Nancy Pelosi’s disapproval is 54%!  Her highest approval ever was 44%!

John A. Boehner is now Speaker of the House of Representatives

John A. Boehner is now Speaker of the House of Representatives.  Americans are no longer held hostage to the Pelosi Democrats' far-left agenda of higher taxes, more government programs, agencies, commissions, rules, regulations, laws, and higher unemployment.  Americans spoke quite clearly that they don't want Congress to bankrupt our nation with their failed ideology.  Americans love this country because it is based upon liberty.  Liberty means that individuals should be free to pursue their own objectives without coercion by other men, namely, government agents.  Now the hard work begins in terms of repealing the socialist legislation that Nancy Pelosi passed while she was Speaker.  This isn’t going to be easy.  The Democrats have been trying to pass socialist legislation for over a century, and they had this narrow two-year window of opportunity and they rammed through as much as they can.  Now we must slow Obama down, reverse course from the socialist direction we’ve been heading in, and then advance our agenda of liberty.

The Media Will Lie and Imply Democrats are still the Majority

When Congress returns in the next few days, you can expect that the media will act as though the minority Democrats are still in charge.  As far as the media is concerned, nothing has changed.  The election did not happen at all in their eyes.  Who will be interviewed when major legislation is considered?  Democrats will.  The media will give the impression that, even though they are in a small minority, that they actually reflect the views of the American public.  But they don't.  And don't fall for the media's trick, either.  This is just the game that they play.
