You’ve all heard of “a death of a thousand cuts.” The constitutional constraints on a central government has suffered razor cuts for my entire life. Today, the victim was officially declared in critical condition. To use another analogy, the constitutional dam has been leaking and bleeding for many years, some breaks so severe as to comprise a hemorrhage. If reparative care was not applied, the result could be critical; even terminal. Read more »
Obama signs the dreaded Health Care Bill (HR3590) on the dotted line Tuesday and then begins a fist-pumping nationwide victory lap. (Patriots sigh.)
It is hard to grasp that our country is in a constitutional crisis unlike any time in our history. We don’t want to believe it, because it is a frightening prospect.
