Don’t Blame Roberts, Rise To The Occasion!

There are a lot of people out there blaming Chief Justice Roberts for the decision to uphold Obamacare’s constitutionality. I understand the anger and frustration, I really do… but this isn’t about Roberts. All his ruling says (in effect) is that Obamacare is legal as a tax. He made a legal decision, now it’s time for us to make a political decision.

Just because Roberts found Obamacare constitutional does not mean he ruled that it is a good policy. In fact, here’s what Roberts said in his decision:

“It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices.”

Roberts knows Obamacare is bad policy, and he knows that the American people don’t support it. But he’s absolutely right: repealing this terrible, unpopular tax is up to us. We need to roll back Obamacare by making our voices heard, and demanding a political solution… full repeal by congress.

Yes, this means we will have to fight hard to take the Senate, build a majority in the House and elect a new president… but we needed to do that anyway. Thanks to Justice Roberts, we have the motivation we need to sweep every race in every district across this country.

Today is the perfect moment for my favorite saying: “don’t get mad, get even.” Blaming Chief Justice Roberts won’t change anything. We need to understand his ruling, and take up the political fight to repeal Obamacare and its forced taxation. Find an organization to get involved with, donate your time and money, reach out to other conservatives, organize rallies, write letters to the editor… this is your chance to be the hero!

    Who was it that said that elections have consequences? Who? That’s right President Elect Obama on 11/5/2008. Justice Roberts may have just done for the Romney campaign what it couldn’t do for itself. Energize the base and to remind the independent moderate voter that just because you don’t vote for Liberal Progressive for President that, that in its self doesn’t make you a racist. 
    Nothing wakes you up faster than cool bucket of water in the face. I’m willing to bet that when the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States of America votes on 6th November 2012 that it won’t be for President Obama.

    Do you really think that the American sheeple will throw out the bums? Even if they somehow overcome the indoctrination of the past 60 or so years in the schools and colleges and throw them out, I don’t believe the replacements, especially Romney will do anything to correct the unconstitutional laws enacted in the past20 years.
