Missouri voters on Tuesday overwhelmingly rejected a federal mandate to purchase health insurance, rebuking President Barack Obama's administration and giving Republicans their first political victory in a national campaign to overturn the controversial health care law passed by Congress in March.
In summary the Show Me state told the Federal Government that they do not have the right to mandate health care in their state. A traditional constitutionalists would agree with them, but the Federal government doesn't acknowledge the Constitution as anything other than a historic document with no relevance meant to earn revenue for the Feds as a tourist attraction.
This is a wonderful first step to reclaiming the ideal of our founding fathers. The only problem I have with this conservative rag's write up is the credit it gives to the Republican party. The Republican party is part of the problem; they are at times as liberal as the Democrats and they certainly are complicit in the current government's destruction of democracy.
So dear friends from Missouri, a hearty thank you. Thank you for being the surprising first to stand up to the unconstitutional actions of the federal government. But please do us all a favor and study the initiatives your Republicans have voted for. Pay attention to those Republicans that aren't truly conservative and are using the momentum of the Tea Party to further their career only seeking to transfer more wealth to line their pockets. Because as we saw with GW, there is nothing worse than a RINO and don't give too much credit to the Republicans for this, give credit to the population for thinking rationally. This is an example of how it's not the politicians that are in charge but the voters. It's the voters who deserve the credit.
