Nemo me impune lacessit

No one provokes me with impunity


No Title of Nobility shall be granted by the United States: And no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State.

Article 1, Section 9, Constitution of the United States

If this is the law of the land...why in a republic (little r) and as republicans, do we allow mere POLITICIANS to the right to use a "title of office" for the rest of their lives as if it were de facto a patent of nobility. Because, as republicans, this should NOT be the case...just saying...

ObamaCare Is Unconstitutional

The recent decision by the Federal District Court in Richmond, VA that declared the individual mandate in ObamaCare as unconstitutional will be the end of ObamaCare.  It's the most important piece of the whole house of cards.  Without it's rule that everyone, regardless of age, financial situation or good health, must purchase health insurance, none of the rest of the "reforms" can stand.  Health insurance companies will not be able to afford to cover everyone, regardless of "pre-existing" conditions without massive increases in insurance costs.

For the first time, the Federal government attempted to mandate the everyone in this country MUST participate, through threat of taxation/fines, in an economic activity under the commerce clause of the US Constitution.  This is clearly outside the scope of the federal government, and this ruling clearly shows that the government's case was badly flawed to begin with.
