I was really disappointed at how many people voted for the Obama/Biden ticket in November. I have also been very disappointed at how the Tea Party/Ron Paul republicans in the House and Senate still seem neutralized by RINOs and other big spenders. I have no idea how long the economy can last, but it is clear that the next two and probably four years won’t give us a new political direction that really tries to cut back on spending on entitlements and the military industrial circus.

Obviously, conservatives need to work hard for change in 2014 in Congress and the Senate. The great thing about Congress is that we don’t have to worry about the dynamics of the Electoral College. There are no inconsequential states because every state gets Congressional Representatives and Senators.

But I think we also need to realize that Tenth Amendment issues are not just significant, they are essential to pushing back the aggressively expanding state of the Obama Administration. Specifically, the authority of the states is essential to stopping Obamacare. According to Politico there is a “nightmare” possibility for the Obama Administration that his healthcare boondoggle becomes an obvious failure:

“The nightmare scenario for Obama is… : Everything the critics have said over the years is right. Health care premiums would shoot way up for everyone, because all the sick people get coverage and the healthy people don’t sign up. Subsidies could become a huge drain on the federal treasury, creating another entitlement that’s politically impossible to roll back. Businesses might drop health coverage and send their workers to the health exchanges — overloading the exchanges and driving up costs even more.”

 And this failure scenario depends in a great part on the cooperation of the states:

    His number one accomplishment is in “buying” his reelection with your tax dollars! to the tune of possibly trillions of dollars. Where did all of that debt money go?

    • Greggie

      Start up money for his campaign cronies for the start up of the 501c4 corporation he will use to lobby his cronies and feedback to them your hard earned tax dollars. He fundamentally is changing this once great nation!

    Nullification IS the way to handle Obamacare. This affront to personal freedom and the Constitution can be defeated simply by the majority of States refusing to implement federal mandates or State legislatures passing actual acts of nullification. Nullification DOES work; look to the Tariff of 1828 for precedent.

    I am really disappointed in how many illegal and fraudulent votes were made by the socialists and how the so-called conservatives in congress virtually ignored and accepted this criminal election. That a TOTALLY unknown entity could occupy the presidency by collusion of BOTH parties is incomprehensible to me.

    • JennieWalsh

      Both parties are owned and controlled by the globalist organized crime syndicate, the Kingdom of Satan. They blocked all third parties from the media coverage and from the presidential debates to make the public forget that they even had any other choices. The Satanists did not care which of their puppets won the presidency.

      You certainly get it. Now let’s see if anybody else does. These things must happen; that the anti-Christ may be ushered in; whom is not that far away. As late as this weekend, I was told by a business owner that people were being given bracelets to wear that could be tracked by the internet (RFID chipped). Soon, the global government will require that all citizens on the planet, have some device worn, or implanted for the purpose of knowing who you are, and where you are at any given time. Biblical prophecy is set in stone; there is no getting around it. And anyone who doesn’t believe this is foolish.

      Ya wanna know how the election was rigged?? When 108% of voters in a county vote for Soetoro, and that is 108% of the county residents, not registered voters; when 99% of voters in a district in Pa vote for him (actually they counted 2 votes for Romney), when the electronic voting machine’s software is owned by George Soros (Soetoro’s owner) and is located in Spain, which counted the ballots, then ya might begin to wonder.

    Obama will go done in history as the tyrant he is and America will change once he has been removed from office I hope peacefully but by force if all else fails. If our elected leaders do there job he will be impeach NOW.

    • http://profile.yahoo.com/6IOTQYHCGTJDTL6RFJIJ66VLOA xyz

      You don’t honestly believe that our elected leaders will do there job do you? We need to bring out term limits to the house and senate to get out these yo yo’s. They can’t seem to realize obama is a fraud when all the evidence is out there and we seem to be able to see it.

      Sounds good to me.

    The Cloward/Piven Express Train to Insolvency is rolling down the tracks unimpeded. The crash has been predicted, the only question is when, not if, the disaster becomes reality. It’s all being done by design, so that the USA becomes the USSA, land of the defeated and home of the slaves.

    I’m thinking more about the ideology of intolerance, the classic
    liberal. That intolerant teacher in North Carolina was a bully,
    telling her students that it was criminal to criticize Obama. You
    know, when you get right down to it, maybe one of the best ways to
    explain liberalism to the uninitiated is to simply say that it is
    intolerant. It’s a philosophy of “no.” It’s a philosophy of
    domination and “no,” and it’s not at all what people think it

    It’s not open-mindedness. It’s not tolerance. It’s not good
    intentions. It’s not sweetness and light and love and all that.
    It’s a philosophy of “no.” It is intolerant. Socialism,
    fascism, communism, all forms of liberalism dictate behavior. You
    must conform. Individuals? Private businesses? You must conform to
    what they say. And if you don’t they’ll pass laws and regulations
    that force you to. And in order to have uniformity, there must be an
    enforcement mechanism, because people are not the same.

    People don’t want the same things. They don’t believe the same
    things. But if you are going to have uniformity — which is what
    liberalism wants, ’cause that’s equality to them: Everybody being
    the same. Outcomes especially. Being the same. Nobody richer than
    anybody else. If you are to have that, you must have an enforcement
    mechanism that shuts down what? Creativity, choice, and innovation.
    You have to shut down all the things that differentiate people.

    Fortunately the physicians will not be able to participate in Obamacare. There is the need to pay overhead, employees, etc. You will have foreign born Islamic physicians who find that the peanuts they receive is better than what they had in there 16 century mud hut hospitals. It will be the seniors who will either have to pay out of whatever retirement on which Obama leaves them to eat and live upon.

    Say goodbye to the best health care in the world.

    Obama learned more from Saul Alinsky’s ” Rules for Radicals” than just “community organizing.” Saul Alinsky: ” A reformation means that the masses of our people have reached the point of disillusionment with past ways and values. They don’t know what will work but they do know that the prevailing system is self-defeating, frustrating and hopeless. they won’t act for change but won’t strongly oppose those who do. The time is then right for revolution. Alinsky viewed as supremely important the role of the organizer,or master manipulator,whose guidance was responsible for setting the agenda of the People’s Organization.”The organizer,” Alinsky wrote,is in a true sense reaching for the highest level form which man can reach- to create,to be a great creator,’ to play god. In “Rules for radicals” Saul Alinsky said, ” the greatest of all radicals is Satan.” Not all revolutions come as a result of violence. Alinsky viewed that revolution would come about through a slow,patient process. Obama’s first four years of change should have proved this and now he has another four years. FORWARD was his campaigns Socialist slogan yet it made little difference to millions of voters.

    I’m just waiting for Obama’s signature healthcare law to go down in flames, and then to watch all of those who voted for him throw him under the bus! That and I’m waiting for the 2014 mid term elections and see how many democrats lose their seats in the senate as we go over the fiscal cliff. I want to make sure Obama is in front to cushion all of our falls!

    It is about time that people speak up about the voter fraud.I have heard reports of college students voting more than once and a Hispanic in Chicago who voted 5 times and bragged..Lets keep talking about it..

  • brabbie2002

    I am really disappointed in the fact you actually think he got in legally…Let’s have a real count that takes into account how many people are registered to vote in each and every district.

    What I like about the freedom of the press is that you can sit there and condemn others for doing nothing while doing the same thing yourself. It’s too late to act politically against those that hold office. Once a boulder is rolling down a hill you can only stand there and watch. I’m a right wing conserv. but reading all these comments makes me realize that not a single one of right wingers is willing to actually take a real stand, because then you would be consider the terrorist and no one wants that label. Only history can make a the difference between a hero and a terrorist. Just sayin’
