If They Can Make You Buy Health Insurance; Is There Anything They Can’t Make You Buy?

Asked About Where The Constitution Forces Americans To Buy Health-Insurance Speaker Pelosi responds “Are You Serious”?

This is a HUGE question that needs to be explored. Unfortunately it is being treated as a “gotcha” and everyone is moving on.

The questions should be; if the government can force you to purchase “health care”, is there anything that they CAN’T force you to buy?

Can they force you to buy your next car only from GM or Chrysler? Can they force you to buy groceries only from Organic Coops? Can they force you to buy your cable service only from companies that don’t offer Fox News?

No? Why not?

As ridiculous as all that might sound, what restrictions on their powers exist that would allow them to force you to pay for “health care” but not any of these other things?

If Congress gets away with this, what will they make you buy next? You know that our 535 little tin gods spend their days trying to make themselves more powerful. Do you really think they will stop with health insurance?

This is a question that needs to be taken seriously.

EU Following The Chinese Version Of “Free Speech.”

If you want to see just where the EU is going, then take a look at sections 1205-00 and 1206-00. Both of them say that it is a crime to “insult” the State, the Nation, the symbols of the State or Nation, or representatives of the State/Nation. Does this mean that it is considered a crime if someone writes an op-ed that is disparaging of a politician? Sure sounds like it.

Here in the U.S. we just have public excoriation for anyone that criticized the government. At least since Jan 20.

And What Do First Amendment Scholars Say About This?

CT Legislators Want State To Subsidize Newspapers

Governor: John? It’s the Governor here. Say, you guys there at the Bristol Press are doing a great job. Top notch.

But there is that one reporter of yours making a big stink over our proposal to increase the state income tax. He really doesn’t get what we’re trying to do to help our state move forward.

And you know, that bill to renew your paper’s subsidy is coming up next week. I’d hate to see it get bogged down in the fuss over this. Know what I mean?

Editor: Um, yes, I know, sir.
