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.
You guys should stop complaining cuz one the health care we have now isnt as good as it was supposed to be. also the law has just been signed give it a try u guys are too hard on democrats they went to college and we voted for most of these people.so if u want to say u have the right to choose tell that to ur congress men or state official. as for obama people are just tryin to make it look like america made a mistake he has done things to help us and we had a full 8 years of a terrible president and i will be so as happy as ever when a obama fixes bush's mistakes. You can find full medical coverage at the lowest price from http://bit.ly/chE6zp obama has to put up with the wo0rld judging his every move and trying to fix the mess we are in we are lucky anyone wants to be our president. STOP COMPLAINING AND GIVE HIM A BREAK. i wanna see one of yall do what he sas done. some people are just so ignorant.
We'd like the thank the Ministry of Truth for chiming in here. It's always refreshing to get a slice of propaganda from the comprehension challenged.
Please keep in mind that I don't believe this is about Democrat vs. Republican. I blame them both and don't see much difference between the 2 save for a few individuals. This is because I'm able to have my own opinions about each issue and don't need religious leaders from either party telling me what I should believe or what they perceive is the truth.
GW was horrible and Obama is horrible. So one question, GW made a ton of mistakes, I agree, and you suggest you will be happy when Obama fixes them - when is he going to start? Do you have an example of something he needs to fix, there are many, and the actions Obama is doing to fix them?
Ladies and gentlemen, the fantastically quotable NL presents to you his latest masterpiece-
"..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."
Constitution as tourist attraction. Spot-on, old chap. A few years ago I had a few hours' layover in Philadelphia, and I rushed from the airport to Independence Hall because I hadn't been there since I was a little kid. I managed to get in on a tour just as I arrived, and I soaked up every bit of the experience and loved it.
A few weeks ago, I was at the same airport, with hours to kill. I thought of going there again, but I decided it would be too depressing to go there during this time in our history, when almost nothing that came out of Independence Hall in the late 1700's is being honored by our own government.
As I see it, the Constitution's function as a "tourist attraction" is mainly to help give people pride in their country, so that the Federal Government can continue to betray that same document without raising the ire of the general public, which is meanwhile distracted by its own pride in our country. The Federal Government is using the Constitution like those scary-looking deep-sea fish use their dangling fluorescent appendages.
For all Missourians such as myself, I'll accept your thanks.
However we have some of the most corrupt cretin repuglicans in this state.
Roy Blunt who is running for senate is among the most corrupt in the country.
We also have one of the most uneducated electorates in the country. Aryan Nation and other such groups either call S.W. Missouri (Springfield, Branson, etc) home or have a significant outpost there.
So yes, they got it right, but probably for the wrong reasons....
