Obamacare's run through the Supreme Court has been a disaster. It has been described as a "train wreck." Justice Antonin Scalia asked if it means that the Federal Government can order people to eat broccoli. Even super-sacred-cow-swing-vote Justice Anthony Kennedy admitted that this "fundamentally" transforms the relationship between the citizens and the government. However, the story not told is the Lie told by Leftist Leaders to unsuspecting Rank and File Leftists. It's Left on Left crime, and it is just awful.
When Obamacare was passed in a hail of gunfire, under serious time constraints and without any possibility of sufficient review.....wait, that's not how it happened. That's just how the Left made America feel about it. The Affordable Care Act (it's official title, like "BFD" Joe's official title is Mr. Vice-President) was the most important piece of legislation ever enacted by man. Over 2000 pages, Obamacare was the attempt of Progressives to move America more towards European Socialism, with the end hope being a full-on Statist regime....if not hope, then just the inevitable end result.
To move this unseemly proposition forward, Leftist Leaders represented by Rep. Nancy Pelosi, and Sen. Harry Reid had to introduce an individual mandate - All Patriotic Americans Must Purchase Health Insurance Or Pay A Fine! Then, Leftists Leaders had to do something else - lie to Rank and File Leftists.
The job of the Leftist Leaders was to mislead and manipulate the Leftist Rank And File (LRAF); get them to take to social media and blogs and tv shows and radio shows not only to tout the pure, raw genius of President Obama and Obamacare, but to viciously attack (through race and class warfare) those who oppose Obamacare.
The calls of "racism" were heard around the land. Opposition to Obamacare meant you hated black people, poor people, women, puppies; it meant you didn't cry while watching Field of Dreams, you think Snooki makes some good points and that Simon Cowell should wear shirts that are "tighter and whiter."
Eventually, 26 states found the backbone to challenge Obamacare and bring it to the Supreme Court. And there, the LRAF found themselves stunned. In just three days, in only six hours of arguments from Solicitor General Donald Verrilli, Obamacare was exposed for what it always was: an unconstitutional power grab against the citizens of the United States.
Two years of campaigning for it, two years of vitriolic hate speech, two years of eating up everything Leftist Leaders Pelosi and Reid sold them (with support selling from Schumer, Frank, Levin, Franken, Wasserman-Schultz and the entire MSNBC line up,) two years of being blind, all ended with a simple question from Justice Kennedy:
Can you create commerce in order to regulate it?
The lie is exposed. Not Obamacare, but that Leftists care about people. They don't.
The Leftist Leaders proved that they can get their followers to do anything, say anything, blindly and unquestioning. What could be more violent than this? Does it need to involve fists or guns in order to be a horrific sight? The LRAF were used as pawns to try to intimidate the American people into accepting this egregious, unconstitutional law; a far reaching, soul thrashing, European Socialist agenda.
Other Leftist Leaders, including James Carville, care nothing for the LRAF, stating that losing in the SCOTUS is a good thing...."the best thing." No Obamacare is a great thing? The LRAF has been victimized!
Soon, the conversation from the Leftist Leaders will be about why Obamacare didn't work (see, racist Tea Party..or racist Republicans….or, just something racist) and why this proves that what America needs is Single-Payer Healthcare. Many of the LRAF will continue to engage this abusive relationship, relishing their Stockholm Syndrome-esqe state of being. We must help them.
Leftist RAF - Save yourselves! We, the Free and Thinking people of America recognize your plight. Left on Left violence is a horrible problem that must be addressed! Do not hide in the shadows! Do not be ashamed! Do not let Harry Reid hurt you anymore. Do not let Nancy Pelosi tell you what you must do for your own good. Stand up and say to your Leftist Leaders "No More!"
LRAF of America - Reject The Left! You have nothing to lose but your chains.
