Our government is made of three equal branches; the executive, legislative and judicial. The reason they are equal is to avoid an outright tyranny. The executive branch of government is to lead the country. The legislative branch is to write law and policy.  The judicial branch is to decide the legality of legislation passed by the legislature to make sure that our constitution is upheld. Our constitution, unlike other countries, was written to limit the reaches of government into our lives.

The decision of the United States Supreme Court on June 28, 2012, on the “Obama Health Care” legislation is like our “United States Constitution” just suffered a heart attack. The cost of this legislation and the loss of our freedoms are beyond calculation. What do we law abiding citizens do? There are a number of ways to get involved. Send a letter to your newspaper’s editorial page, your favorite radio or TV station, your congressman or congresswoman and let them know that you want “Obama Health Care” repealed. The United States Post Office can use your business and if you don’t want to spend the money on stamps send emails. Write or post to your “Facebook”, “Twitter” accounts etc. Talk about this terrible ruling by the Supreme Court to all of your friends now before it is too late. This law will steal freedoms we may not realize we have until they are gone. We citizens have to stop it. Remember we as American citizens run our government and if the people we elect do not uphold our U.S. Constitution we will fire them next election. While the Supreme Court Justices are able to serve for life we can effect the laws that appear before that court by who we send to the legislative branch. We can also have bad laws repealed by who we send to Congress and the Senate and with a super majority to override even a Presidential Veto of a needed repeal.

We all should remember the words of the author of the “Declaration of Independence” Thomas Jefferson when he wrote, “Was the government to prescribe to us our medicine and diet, our bodies would be in such keeping as our souls are now.” What I take that to mean is a government that controls our medicine and food controls our souls. Is that what you want with “Obama Health Care”?

Supreme Court Justice Roberts was only one of five who allowed “Obama Health Care” to stand.

Think about it!

Sincerely,
