USE RELIGIOUS FREEDOMS TO CHALLENGE OBAMA CARE

(MichaelSavage.com) OBAMA IS PREPARING TO SHOVE SOCIALIZED MEDICINE DOWN OUR THROATS. AND IN ORDER TO DO SO, HE’S DECIDED TO BLOW UP THE U.S. SENATE. HE ANNOUNCED THAT RATHER THAN FOLLOW THE RULES OF THE U.S. SENATE, WHICH REQUIRE 60 VOTES TO END DEBATE ON ANY ISSUE, THE DEMONCATS WILL USE A METHOD CALLED "RECONCILIATION" TO PASS THE BILL WITH ONLY 51 SENATE VOTES. OBAMA HAS DECIDED TO USE THE NUCLEAR OPTION TO FORCE HIS WILL ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. NOW YOU KNOW THAT THE DEMONCATS ATTACKED THIS SAME METHOD WHEN THEY THOUGHT THE REPUBLICANS WERE GOING TO USE IT IN 2005. BUT THAT DOESN’T MATTER TO THEM BECAUSE THEY’RE IN POWER NOW.



ON TOP OF THAT HE’S GOING TO MAKE YOUNG PEOPLE WHO DON’T NEED HEALTH INSURANCE PAY TO SUPPORT ILLEGAL ALIENS WHO DON’T PAY FOR HEALTHCARE AT ALL. MAYBE YOU DON’T KNOW THIS, BUT MAKING INDIVIDUAL AMERICANS BUY HEALTH INSURANCE IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL. IT’S TRUE THAT ARTICLE I, SECTION 8 OF THE CONSITUTION GIVES CONGRESS THE POWER TO REGULATE INTERSTATE COMMERCE. BUT IN ORDER FOR THIS TO APPLY, CONGRESS MUST BE REGULATING SOME KIND OF ECONOMIC ACTIVITY. BUT A HEALTHCARE MANDATE DOESN’T REGULATE ANY SORT OF "ACTIVITY.” JUST BEING AN AMERICAN WOULD TRIGGER IT.



THIS ISN’T THE FIRST TIME THAT BIG GOVERNMENT HAS TRIED TO FORCE NONSENSICAL AND DRACONIAN REGULATION ON THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. THIS WAS FRANKLIN ROOSEVELT’S APPROACH IN THE 1930s UNDER HIS SOCIALIST “NEW DEAL” PROGRAM. BUT HIS DICTATORIAL SCHEMES CAME INTO CONFLICT WITH FOUR JEWISH BROTHERS IN NEW YORK, THE SCHECHTER BROTHERS WHO RAN TWO KOSHER BUTCHER SHOPS IN BROOKLYN.





ROOSEVELT CREATED THE NATIONAL RECOVERY ADMINISTRATION (NRA) DURING THE DEPRESSION TO SOCIALIZE AMERICA. IT DREW UP ALL KINDS OF DETAILED CODES FOR INDIVIDUAL INDUSTRIES, TELLING HOW FIRMS HAD TO DO THEIR BUSINESS. THE SCHECHTER BROTHERS, THE KOSHER BUTCHERS FROM BROOKLYN, FELL UNDER RULES WHICH SAID CUSTOMERS COULD BUY A WHOLE OR HALF COOP OF CHICKENS, BUT COULDN’T MAKE A SELECTION OF PARTICULAR BIRDS. THIS WAS IN CONFLICT WITH JEWISH KOSHER LAWS, WHICH REQUIRED THE REMOVAL OF UNHEALTHY ANIMALS FROM THE STOCK. IT WAS A VIOLATION OF THEIR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM. BUT THE COURTS FOUND THE SCHECHTER BROTHERS GUILTY OF ALLOWING THEIR CUSTOMERS TO BUY INDIVIDUAL CHICKENS INSTEAD OF WHOLE COOPS AND THEY ALL SERVED JAIL TIME.



BUT ON APPEAL, THE CASE MADE IT TO THE SUPREME COURT, WHERE THEY FOUND IN FAVOR OF THE SCHECHTER BROTHERS BY A UNANIMOUS DECSION. THE COURT HELD THAT FDR’S REGULATIONS WERE IN EXCESS OF CONGRESSIONAL POWER UNDER THE COMMERCE CLAUSE OF THE CONSTITUTION AND INVALIDATED THEM. SPEAKING TO AIDES OF ROOSEVELT, JUSTICE LOUIS BRANDEIS REMARKED THAT, “THIS IS THE END OF THIS BUSINESS OF CENTRALIZATION, AND I WANT YOU TO GO BACK AND TELL THE PRESIDENT THAT WE'RE NOT GOING TO LET THIS GOVERNMENT CENTRALIZE EVERYTHING.” THE SAME MESSAGE SHOULD BE SENT TO OBAMA.



IT’S INTERESTING TO NOTE THAT IN THE CASE OF THE SCHECHTER BROTHERS, GOVERNMENT REGULATION CAME INTO CONFLICT WITH JEWISH DIETARY LAWS. IF THEIR LAWYERS HAD TAKEN ANOTHER TACK, THEY PROBABLY COULD HAVE WON ON THE BASIS THAT THEIR RELIGIOUS FREEDOM WAS BEING VIOLATED. BUT THIS TIME AROUND, OBAMA THE DICTATOR HAS MADE RELIGIOUS EXEMPTIONS FOR HEALTHCARE INSURANCE. THE AMISH WON’T BE REQUIRED TO BUY HEALTH INSURANCE. CHRISTIAN SCIENTISTS WON’T BE REQUIRED TO BUY IT, AS MODERN MEDICAL CARE VIOLATES THEIR RELIGIOUS CONVICTIONS.



SO HERE’S MY SUGGESTION: IF THEY CAN MAKE EXCEPTIONS FOR THESE RELIGIOUS GROUPS, LET’S FIND OTHER RELIGIOUS GROUPS THAT THEY’LL HAVE TO FIND EXCEPTIONS FOR UNTIL THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE EXEMPTED FROM THE SYSTEM, THAT THEY WON’T POSSIBLY BE ABLE TO PAY FOR IT. LET’S THINK ABOUT THE POSSIBILITIES:



WILL RELIGIOUS JEWS BE FORCED TO PAY FOR MEDICAL CARE ON SATURDAY, THE JEWISH SABBATH, ON WHICH THEY’RE NOT ALLOWED TO RECEIVE MEDICAL CARE?
WILL OBAMA CARE PAY FOR RELIGIOUS CIRCUMCISION IN JEWISH FAMILIES?
DEVOUT MUSLIMS ARE NOT SUPPOSED TO BE IN THE PRESENCE OF ALCOHOL? DOES THIS MEAN THEY WON’T BE ABLE TO PARTICIPATE IN AN OBAMA CARE PROGRAM WHICH COVERS ALCOHOL SWABS?


THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS. WHAT OTHER RELIGIOUS EXEMPTIONS DO YOU THINK YOU MIGHT BE ABLE TO USE TO AVOID OBAMA’S SOCIALIZED MEDICINE PLAN?



AMERICA MUST ACT QUICKLY ON THIS, BECAUSE OBAMA IS SHOVING THIS THROUGH THE SENATE AS WE SPEAK. OBAMA’S NUCLEAR OPTION FLIES IN THE FACE OF OVER 200 YEARS OF SENATE TRADITION. REQUIRING ONLY 51 VOTES INSTEAD OF 60 FLIES IN THE FACE OF THE INTENT OF THE CONSTITUTION. WHEN THE FOUNDERS DESIGNED THE LEGISLATIVE BRANCH OF THE GOVERNMENT, THEY MADE THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES THE BODY THAT WAS MEANT TO BE DIRECTLY AND IMMEDIATELY RESPONSIVE TO THE VOTERS. THAT’S WHY THEY HAVE SHORT, TWO-YEAR TERMS. THAT’S WHY THEY REPRESENT SMALL DISTRICTS AND HAVE A MORE DIRECT RELATIONSHIP TO THE VOTERS.



THE SENATE, ON THE OTHER HAND, WAS DESIGNED TO BE A MODERATING INFLUENCE ON THE PASSIONS OF THE ELECTORATE. THAT’S WHY THEY HAVE SIX-YEAR TERMS, LONGER THAN THAT OF THE PRESIDENT, SO THEY COULD WEATHER THE STORMS OF A POPULACE STIRRED UP BY A POTENTIAL DICTATOR. THAT’S WHY THEY REPRESENT ENTIRE STATES INSTEAD OF JUST DISTRICTS. UNTIL THE EARLY 20TH CENTURY, SENATORS WEREN’T EVEN ELECTED DIRECTLY BY THE VOTERS.



EVEN GEORGE WASHINGTON UNDERSTOOD THAT THE SENATE WAS MEANT TO ACT AS A BULWARK AGAINST THE ACTIONS OF THOSE WHO WOULD TRY TO QUICKLY IMPOSE THEIR WILL ON THE NATION. IN A LEGENDARY CONVERSATION, THOMAS JEFFERSON HAD RETURNED FROM FRANCE AND WAS BREAKFASTING WITH WASHINGTON AS THE CONSTITUTION WAS BEING CREATED. JEFFERSON ASKED WASHINGTON WHY HE AGREED TO HAVE A SENATE. “WHY,” SAID WASHINGTON, “DID YOU JUST NOW POUR THAT COFFEE INTO YOUR CUP BEFORE DRINKING IT?” “TO COOL IT,” SAID JEFFERSON; “MY THROAT IS NOT MADE OF BRASS.” “EVEN SO,” SAID WASHINGTON, “WE POUR OUR LEGISLATION INTO THE SENATORIAL CUP TO COOL IT.”



THAT IS WHAT THE U.S. SENATE WAS DESIGNED TO DO – STOP BABY DICTATORS LIKE OBAMA FROM RUNNING TOO HOT AND PUSHING THROUGH THEIR RADICAL AGENDAS BEFORE THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES HAD A CHANCE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT WAS GOING ON. BUT OBAMA HAS DECIDED TO BLOW UP OVER 200 YEARS OF SENATE TRADITION, BLOW UP THE INTENT OF GEORGE WASHINGTON AND THOMAS JEFFERSON, AND BLOW UP THE ESSENCE OF THE CONSTITUTION IN ORDER TO PASS SOCIALIZED MEDICINE WITH THE NUCLEAR OPTION.



YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THAT THIS COULD BE MORE THAN JUST A DEFEAT FOR CONSERVATIVES OR REPUBLICANS. IF OBAMA SUCCEEDS IN DROPPING HIS BOMB, IT WILL DESTROY THE VERY CORE OF THE CONSTITUTION. IT’S AN ATTACK AGAINST EVERYTHING GUARANTEED BY THE BILL OF RIGHTS, EVEN THOSE CHERISHED BY LIBERALS. BECAUSE IF OBAMA CAN DESTROY ONE PART OF THE CONSTITUTION, HE CAN DESTROY ANY PART OF IT. AND DON’T THINK FOR A MINUTE THAT SOCIALIZED MEDICINE WILL BE THE LAST STOP ON THE TRAIN BOUND FOR PERDITION. © 2010 SPI
