1. (shrug). Somebody brought it up as relating to GPS. Go read the great-grandparent post.

2. The Bible is a fictional document. The Constitution is the LAW which reigns supreme over all areas of the United States, even the president, congress, and supreme court. It is worthwhile to know what the LAW says, else we might as well be a law-less society. Unless you're suggesting we ignore the law? I'm sorry but I will not. The Constitution is the law and I have sworn an oath as a government official to obey it.

3. That was my point. The power belongs to fine people for not having health insurance belongs to the States, not the central government or the Congress. I'm glad we agree on this point.

4. No. I will not leave this country. The Founding document of this nation reads, "We hold these truths to be self-evident..... That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, -- That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government."


My family has been here since the 1700s. It is not we that must leave, or change. It is the government that must change, because it is becoming a pre-1990 eastern-european-style tyranny. It has effectively revived the nobility system (with the politicians as the new nobility), and turned all the rest of us into serfs to be ordered around like puppets (buy health insurance or be heavily fined). It is the government that has betrayed the founding principles of this nation, and broken the Supreme Law of the land in direct violation of the oath to uphold that law. I will not leave. I will stay.

Freedom to work and enjoy the fruits of my labor, without somebody coming along and taking almost $35,000 of it every fucking year..... freedom to be clear of debt and not have to fear for my children's or my grandchildren's future that the country might go bankrupt..... freedom to speak my mind without being called a "racist" or "terrorist" just because I disagree with the Obamas or the Bushes..... that Freedom is a cause worth dying for.

What do YOU have that is worth dying for? Anything? Anything at all?

I suspect nothing.
