"When misguided public opinion honors what is despicable and despises what is honorable, punishes virtue and rewards vice, encourages what is harmful and discourages what is useful, applauds falsehood and smothers truth under indifference or insult, a nation turns its back on progress and can be restored only by the terrible lessons of catastrophe." … Frederic Bastiat
Evil talks about tolerance only when it’s weak. When it gains the upper hand, its vanity always requires the destruction of the good and the innocent, because the example of good and innocent lives is an ongoing witness against it. So it always has been. So it always will be. And America has no special immunity to becoming an enemy of its own founding beliefs about human freedom, human dignity, the limited power of the state, and the sovereignty of God. – Archbishop Chaput

Do You Want to Stop Obamacare in your State?
Those of you who are opposed to this abomination and wish to prevent the destruction of what is left of our Republic, please read the following article. If you are fortunate enough to live in a red state, there is still a chance to see the states stop this thing dead in its tracks.
Please, please, pick up the phone and call your Governor's office and urge them to say NO to setting up the state run exchange. If the states refuse to implement this thing, it will wither and die on the vine.
This is how the States are able to stand on the Tenth Amendment and refuse to comply with a power grab by Leviathan on the Potomac.
We all understand that elections have consequences and that there are certain issues which are ceded with an electoral loss. Obamacare is not one of them.
If Obamacare is allowed to survive, then our Constitution has no meaning and our Republic is finished. It will engender a takeover of 1/6 of our economy, create permanent dependency, induce unsustainable inflationary pressure on the cost of healthcare and health insurance, and saddle the next generation with crippling debt. Every intervention, program, and mandate prescribed under the 2010 healthcare law, if left intact, will limit freedom, increase insurance premiums, create more dependency, and lead to rationed care.
