The uniqueness of the US was taken away. The Rule of Law is gone. It has been replaced by The Rule of Men. Congress and the political class can, for all practical purposes, do whatever they deem proper or expedient.
Two centuries of law were officially voided today as was the basis for America’s greatness.
These are thoughts provided by the American Thinker:
The Power to Tax is the Power to Destroy
June 28, 2012
There are now no restraints on how Congress may hook up vacuum hoses to our wallets, our assets, our future earnings, and prospects for life and liberty. More
The outcome and ramifications for the US were summarized by Joel B. Pollack:
The Supreme Court has made a wrong decision, for the wrong reasons, in defense of a wrong policy. If citizens do not rush to the polls to undo what has happened–and after today, I am not certain that they will–our health care system will be ruined, our Treasury bankrupted, and our Republic endangered.
The next election will be important, but no more important than all coming elections. Without the Constitution we are subject to dictatorship. Unless this legal precedent is reversed, the US will be electing potential dictators. Forever after we must only elect benevolent dictators. One mistake will be fatal! Sadly, election mistakes are made regularly and will be made again. From now on, these mistakes could be fatal.
Regardless of who is elected in 2012 and by whatever margin, this SCOTUS decision is a signal to get the hell out of your country of birth. Without Constitutional protection (which has been effectively repealed) people are virtually defenseless against the all-powerful State. We are on a sure path to Serfdom.
Leave now if you want to have a chance at a productive and free future.
I don’t know where to tell you to go, but I think your chances will be better elsewhere than here. Sadly, the greatest country in the world has become the greatest threat to freedom! All productive citizens are potential prey for the State. Your wealth, your freedom and your property are all under attack.
