"Whom the gods would destroy, they first make mad" is spoken by Prometheus in Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem "The Masque of Pandora." If the people of the U.S. condone torture then we are close to being mad and deserve to be punished.

A Republican Alternative to Obamacare

Problem with Goodman's "Patient Power" is that Tax deductible HSA still favor job-based health care because individuals are not spared from FICA taxes when they own the policies. When employers own them they are spared from the FICA taxes. Much better to end the income tax, then individuals are at no tax disadvantage when purchasing an insurance policy. They also get all their pay and can save tax free. No need for MSAs or IRAs for that matter.

What Should The GOP Do About Obamacare?

Mr. Goodman ignores the tax incentives that cause job-based health insurance with its portability and pre existing problems. These tax incentives must be removed for true health care reform. This can be done by giving an income and FICA tax break to both insurance premiums and out-of-pocket health care. Even better would be to end the income tax.
Low taxes on earnings is good and so is a consumption tax that does not tax earnings at all.

There are no conservative federal judges. Perhaps it is time for the states to assert themselves and nullify or refuse to follow unconstitutional laws.
Would have been interesting if he had insisted on a Jury trial and asked for jury nullification useing the First Amendment to free speech as his defense.

It is healthy for people of all political persuasion to question the decisions of the nine black robed government paid lawyers, AKA The Supreme Court.

Repeal and replace Obamacare

Replace it? And I thought conservatives believe in free markets. All the government can do is to get out of the way and this should start with the income tax breaks to job-based health care. The best way to do that is replace the income tax with a sales tax. Then workers will get all their pay and can save tax free. With increased savings, workers will gravitate to catastrophic insurance policies that they own. They will pay for most of their medical care out-of-pocket. There you have it: free market medical care.
4 Main structural problems: 1. Income tax - repeal 16th Amendment 2. Inflation - End the Fed 3. National control of education & health care - Follow the Constitution. 4. Term limits
Problem with Kingston is he voted to fund Head Start, Food and Drug Adm, Nutrition Program for Women, Infants & Children; and Federal Emergency Management Agency. None are constitutional.
