The United States of America: July 4th, 1776 to June 28th, 2012 – R.I.P.

America died today! Oh sure, we’ll continue as a country, not as a Constitutional Republic, but as a nanny state of entitlement addicted whiners and bellyachers ruled by a despot who won a major victory towards his quest for a Marxist America.

Well done Obama, I never underestimate your resolve. But let’s be honest here, you and I both know that it wasn’t as much your resoluteness as it is was exploiting a dumbed-down and broken-spirited American citizenry.

Most Americans, including the highest court in the land, have deliberately chosen Socialism over Republicanism as of today, June 28th, 2012.

On behalf of the minority of us that are Constitutional, freedom-loving Americans, I apologize to all the families and loved ones of every American who gave their lives for our continued freedom. Your loved ones died in vain. They shed their blood for absolutely nothing.

The Supreme Court pissed on their graves today. What an unforgivable disgrace.

This is part and parcel in Obama’s quest to bring the United States into alignment with global governance.

Were it not for the publicly documented thirteen million, but more accurate count of twenty-five to thirty million illegal immigrants, this would never have become law.

Taxation without representation! What a disgrace, what a travesty, what an absolute joke.

Go ahead America, enjoy your Socialism for now. Let’s see how you feel when you experience the ramifications of it in just a short couple of years.

Way to go SCOTUS, you’re 2 for 2 in aiding and abetting Obama in his quest for a Marxist America. First you rule that special interest groups and Superpacs can buy a presidential election and now you rule that federal government has the authority to force us to buy whatever it deems appropriate.

Why don’t you spare us the agony of waiting with baited breath, defecate all over Arlington National Cemetery, and declare Sharia Law the “supreme” law of the “land of the chained” and the “home of the cowards.”

In the words of Ronald Reagan:

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.”

If only he knew that not only would it be his own children that would be the generation to witness the extinction of freedom in America, but that it occurred — not at the hands of our enemies abroad — but at the hands of our very own federal government.

America died today – June 28th, 2012.
Regretfully,

Kevin A. Lehmann

    I join you in the opinion of this decision. I am 77 years old, and have enjoyed the liberty, and goodness of this country. I sit here in shock, I never thought I would live to see this take place in this country. We have only the citizens of this country to blame. Amazing how they were able to place many into a coma ,therefore they (all of them you know who I am speaking about)came to care aout everything but the condition of this country. The morals and ethics along with people’s personel lives, echo the though and priority agenda. God help us, as it was in the days of Noah so shall it be when the Son of God returns.

    The American Left has decided they are the elite Americans who know, better than you, how you should live your life, worship your God, do your job, enjoy your vacation, build your house, drive your car, get an education, which doctor you visit, which hospital you select, even to the last detail of how you groom your lawn, or whether you can fly a US flag outside the home you THINK you own! The American Left is into every aspect of your daily life. Because they are convinced that you and I, the rabble, the “great unwashed”, are not capable of taking care of ourselves. No one is required to be responsible for his or her actions anymore. It is now understood that when someone commits a heinous act, it is not the perpetrator’s fault! That is a part of the bargain struck with the American Left.

    The fundamental question prompted by all of this is: At what point do we stop ascribing the motives of the left as misguided but nevertheless well-intentioned; and recognize that the left is actually motivated by a loathing for, and a burning desire to tear down, the constitutional foundations of this country?

    My fellow patriots: Don’t blame the left because you chose to believe the nonsense that the Affordable Heathcare Act was unconstitutional, blame your political heros who were misinforming you.

    Take this as a wake up call. In our democracy, the continued dissmissiveness of the will of the majority vs. the ideologies of the few is the only real anti-american thrust and today, you got that message.

    I’m going to respectfully disagree on several points:

    “Were it not for the publicly documented thirteen million, but more accurate count of twenty-five to thirty million illegal immigrants, this would never have become law.”

    Were it not for people like ME, who CANNOT get health insurance ANY OTHER WAY…because private insurers have deemed me “too risky” (unhealthy) because of a pre-existing condition (spina bifida myelomeningocele… the SAME ONE a friend of mine has who is completely disabled and has lost both legs)…but by a stroke of *luck* I am not as disabled as he is (I have graduated from college and until the economic collapse held high paying jobs for over 20 years and thus do not and have not qualified for “disability” or any other form of assistance)..this would have never become law.

    Illegal immigration has absolutely nothing to do with whether or not a country has a right, duty, or moral obligation to defend its weakest citizens. Even if one argues that government does NOT have the “moral obligation” to defend its weakest citizens (because God forbid that would Socialism), it can be argued that a free democracy has the RIGHT to do so…and also the RIGHT to repeal its earlier decisions. And thus…the United States of America continues on just as the founding fathers intended.

    As for a previous comment that the “American Left” has decided how you should worship your God…most people who make up the “American Left” are no the religious fundamentalists who have decided that “God says abortion and homosexuality is a sin”. It is the conservatives on the American Right who have decided that the only valid religion in America is Christianity, and it is the American Right who inserted the phrase “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance as a response to those “Godless communists”. Forcing anyone to acknowledge the existence of a God is by definition forcing religious beliefs on another. Most folks on the left, even those who are devoutly religions, still believe that it is up to the individual to make that choice…not the state. And in fact that’s what the Founding Fathers believed too.

    When the lame stream media declares a “victory” for Barrack Obama, what they really mean is America just lost its freedom, but they aren’t going to lead their NEWS with a headline line that. We have lost all our ability to make our own decisions based on the SCOTUS decision today. Now we will make our move this November and vote this bastard out of office and repeal this piece of shit legislation.

    You write about how our soldiers have fought and died in vain due to the Supreme Court’s ruling of constitutionality of HealthCare Reform. My son is enlisted Air Force, he has sworn to defend your freedoms with his life. My other teenaged son can now have access to healthcare in spite of his pre-existing condition rather than healthcare executives receiving bonuses of $70million/year to deny him and millions like him coverage. The military is socialistic, the firefighters fighting Colorado’s fires are socialistic, our roads, schools and power are socialistic. You don’t get to have it both ways – it’s either the right thing to do for our country to take care of its citizens or its the wrong thing to do. My children sit on both sides of the spectrum, both deserve the freedom that both our military and our healthcare system provide.

    Vicki: You’re comparing apples to oranges. I too swore to defend your freedoms with my life as a Marine. The issue here is taxation without representation, not to mention that this is the largest tax ever hoisted on the American people in the history of our nation. Obama flat out lied when he said this WAS NOT a tax. The Supreme Court clearly delineated it as such.

    The very middle class that Obama claims to be concerned about will absorb the brunt of this nightmare. Businesses will be crushed and more and more doctors will close their doors. Then who’s going to administer health care to your teenaged son?

    This bill has nothing at all to do with roads, schools and power. Again you’re mixing apples and oranges.

    And no, it’s not the government’s responsibility to take care of our citizens. It’s government’s responsibility to protect and govern it’s citizens, not to encroach on our liberties and decide what and what not we can purchase.

    Socialism has caused havoc here in the UK. Its killing this country but unfortunately its too far entrenched in areas such as the welfare state which needs to be cut back but if its done too quickly many people will starve and go homeless. Stop this nutter you have as Pres.
    before its too late for you.

    Great to hear from you, Kevin! My son who lay on his deathbed for two years due to medical mis-diagnosis is also named Kevin. Great name.
    First, let me thank you for your service. Marines have my unending respect – those who serve on the front lines, who put their boots on the ground as does my son (Special Forces ParaRescue Jumper) have a perspective that I can’t imagine personally, but connect with as a Military Mom.

    Second, of course I am comparing apples and oranges! :-) The military would be apples, healthcare = oranges if you like, schools = bananas, roads = grapes, schools = watermelons, and together these form a fruit salad under the umbrella of our constitution’s goal of protecting ‘life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.” What is important to realize about the orange part of the fruit salad is that there are laws that add some oranges to our ‘fruit salad.’ These laws provide healthcare to the old (medicare), and to the poor (medicaid), and to the uninsured (hospital requirements to provide care) – unfortunately what Congress has not done is to 1) make transparent the costs of the uninsured going to the hospital and 2) to figure out a way that health care insurers / drug companies / hospital administrators will stop greedily looking out for their own private interests at the expense of the middle class through rapidly increasing healthcare costs, increasing denials for fair coverage when insurance is purchased, and exceptions for anyone that might cost the insurers money through pre-existing condition restrictions to access insurance.

    I do not like many things about the Affordable Healthcare Act, particularly the fact that it does not address the underlying problem in our healthcare system related to increased costs due to provider and insurer greed, as well as increased costs due to the coverage of the uninsured accessing care at higher rates (due in large part to the horrible economy and related loss of insurance due to job loss.) I don’t think that a health care executive should be rewarded for denying me care, or for nearly killing my son, and I’m frustrated that the ACA fails to address this issue. And yet, it is a step in the right direction! The law making the costs that hospitals are required to absorb for the uninsured transparent by requiring people to be protected when they use this national benefit (access to hospitals.) These costs, in the ACA, are covered by the penalty that is charged if a person chooses not obtain healthcare (at some point in our lives everyone is going to get sick…it is just a matter of time.) Linguistics can turn a penalty into a tax, yet at the end of the day it is a service that we all know we will use, as demonstrated by the fact that access to the hospitals is guaranteed by law.

    You have good healthcare coverage through TriCare due to your selfless dedication to our country – and this is a good and fair thing. I am happy for a portion of my taxes to go to providing your healthcare. Unfortunately, millions don’t have access to health care coverage, people like my son Kevin prior to the ACA being enacted. We as a society absorb these costs when these people get sick. We absorb their costs either through their going to the hospital, by their going bankrupt, or by their early death due and subsequent lack of contribution to our economy.

    Call it a tax, call it a penalty – whatever you want, but at the end of the day, the middle class is already paying the price for health care access – the least we can do is to take steps to curb the selfish greed of those in the health care industry who reward themselves for denying coverage, or for taking responsibility for the care we receive. How about you and I agree that rather than repealing the ACA, we work together to improve the law so that costs decrease, and individuals take responsibility for the inevitable need for medical care.

    All the best,
    Dr. Vicki Whiting, Ph.D.

    The middle class just absorbed an even bigger blow by being the recipient of the largest tax increase ever foisted upon the American people with this atrocious monstrosity that will take up a full 1/6th of our GDP. The point you’re missing Dr. Whiting is the unconstitutionality of the bill. This opens the floodgates for complete statist control of every aspect of our lives. The government now chooses the winners and losers of economy and penalizes those who don’t comply with their purchase mandate as we rapidly evolve into at best a plutocracy, and at worst a socialist state headed by a despot that’s guided by his Marxist worldview.

    The biggest cost of healthcare is obesity. So, what’s next? A mega tax on salt? A surtax on specific fast food restaurants like McDonald’s, Wendy’s and Burger King? Maybe I should open a health club that’s subsidized by Uncle Sam and ask him to tax those members who don’t come in at least three times a week to keep from being a burden on the healthcare system. What’s to keep the government from mandating that I buy an electric car in the near future and if not, I’ll be penalized for contributing to “global warming?”

    With all due respect to your one son, the answer is not an ever burgeoning federal government and intervention, but smaller government and free market capitalism. What we need is competition and the ability to purchase insurance across state lines (interstate commerce). If federal government got the hell out of the way, there would be more than enough competition amongst insurers who would cover your son’s preexisting condition in a heartbeat.

    I am not interested in improving an UNCONSTITUTIONAL law. The real solution is less regulation, lower taxes, more competition and drum roll please . . . Tort Reform! You wanna make a difference? Go after the high priced lawyers and limit the ungodly amount of punitive damages that line the pockets of ambulance chasers at the expense of the hard-working middle class tax payers.

    All my best,

    Kevin A. Lehmann

    This is a very well written piece of propaganda. It has all the scary concepts that frighten the Republican voter: Obama the despotic Marxist, the nanny state of entitled whiners, socialism, one-world government, brown skinned immigrants, taxes, islam, the federal government. And it also gives a mention to all the icons: the sanctity of our veterans, Saint Ronald Reagan, freedom from government, the evils of public education. Well written, but propaganda, whether it be from Goebbel’s newspapers, Pravda’s, or a rightwing American blogger is still a lie designed to fool people.

    If the shoe fits . . . And as a private citizen who puts his opinions in writing, exactly who am I propagandizing for? Who is paying me? I’d sure like to know because I’m getting stiffed on every article. “A lie designed to fool people?” If ignorance were a measure of intelligence Jeff, you’d be a modern day Einstein.

    This is a real shame. We the people no loger mean anything. The know it all democrates can kiss my royal american behind. I served this country as did alot of my family and everyone is shocked. I pray in November the American people think and remember the past few years and all the lies we heard. Where was the open and above the board we were promised. This health care was passed behind closed doors and sessions at two am three o’clock in the morning with no Republicians invited. Yet speaker Pelosi had the nerve to say we would like it. And congress and the senate had 72 hours to read it. Just shut up and sign it and read it later. Well if pelosi wants me to belive she cares for us, why do you not have the same coverage you’re making us take. You’re no better then any of us, the people you serve. Oh I forgot you’re a Dem. So sorry no heart or soul.I hope this country wakes up and starts to hold both parties accountable. We the people have not forgotten remember 1776!!!!!!!!!!!

    seriously folks, you want to talk about the dumbing down of American citizens? Just look at all you conservatives who don’t know the difference between a capitalist / corporatist president and a Marxist… Seriously people, Marxist don’t bail out capitalist enterprises…. like GM, Banks, wall street, or invest in private enterprise… And as you must know by now, GM became the number one auto maker in the world… If you think that is Marxism, go to school to get over the ignorance. Nothing worse that someone being proud of being ignorant. But then again we are talking about Birthers… Not much hope for Birthers.

    How can you choose Socialism over Republicanism? Socialists want Republicanism. The two aren’t rival Political Philosophies, and in fact Socialism grew out of the push for greater Republican Governance.

    Socialism and Republicanism aren’t rival political philosophies . . . huh?

    On a side note, a good easy introduction into what a Socialist wants is from the Cousin of the Father of the Pledge of Allegiance himself, Edward Bellamy. Bellamy was an American Patriot who believed in furthering the Ideals of the American Republic to their logical conclusion, and in his two novels, “Looking Backwards” and “Equality” sowed how wonderful the Future would be in a Socialist society.

    Of course his vision set this in the year 2000, so 12 years ago…

    The mist striking feature is that Bellamy pushed for a Republic, and his Cousin, a Christian Socialist and Baptist Minister, also advocated for Republicanism, and wrote the Pledge of Allegiance from a Socialists perspective. If Socialists hate Republicanism, why write a Pledge to a Republic? it’s not like he was hiding his Socialism… there wouldn’t even be a reason to as Socialism had not taken on negative connotations in American society in the mid to late 19th Century and early 20th.

    Hi, I’m pleased to see that we share compatible views on the political side of things so I thought I’d throw in my two cents worth.
    The struggle that we, as Christians are engaged in politically is not just Republican-Democrat, liberal-conservative, black-white, rich or poor, suits vs. blue jeans, 1% against 99%, smart against stupid, it is God fearing versus God-less.
    Thanks.
