Passage of Obamacare opened a Pandora's box

Are Chief Justice John Roberts and the liberal media really naive enough to think that the Supreme Court's ruling on Obamacare will be enough to satisfy the socialist administration of Barack Obama? They've opened a Pandora's box for this administration to impose any requirement on the citizens that will give them more power. While they're unable to accomplish it under the Commerce Clause of the Constitution, the court reinforced the power of Congress to impose taxes. If they decide that the Honda Fit automobile, built in China, is more ecologically friendly and more efficient to operate than a Chevrolet Impala, under this ruling the administration simply has to logroll Congress into imposing a tax on a person who drives anything other than a Fit.

What if they decide that anyone who casts a vote for other than a Democrat or a socialist must pay a poll tax? This is possible under Roberts' opinion of Congress' power to levy taxes. Think it can't happen here? Remember Germany prior to World War II and the apathy of the German people at that time? If you aren't familiar with this period of history, I urge you to study it.

It's time for Americans to get off our collective rear ends and do everything possible to defeat Obama and the liberal/socialist members of Congress. We have only 18 weeks to save this country from going socialist.
