“But ambitious encroachments of the federal government on the authority of the State governments would not excite the opposition of a single State, or of a few States only. They would be signals of general alarm.” – Unknown part 1.
Enforced healthcare. Several states and their governments believe that it is an encroachment upon the rights of their people. What originally started out as equally enforced access to healthcare plans for all has quickly devolved into enforced access to healthcare plans for several different minorities. Ultimately only one thing is for sure, no one persons healthcare plan is equal to any other persons.
Why has the federal government created laws that it says it can exclude various groups of people from? Why has the federal government created law that fines the people it does not exclude?
“Every government would espouse the common cause.” – Unknown Part 2
But everyone can see there is nothing common about these laws. In the state of New Jersey when Obamacare was truly rolled out for the public, only 2 uninsured people signed up for it.
“…an apprehension of the federal, as was produced by the dread of a foreign, yoke; and unless the projected innovations should be voluntarily renounced, the same appeal to a trial of force would be made in the one case as was made in the other.” – Unknown Part 3
A single founding father was quoted in each one of the above quotations. The last, part 3, you will notice suggests to us that the appropriate response to the federal government of the United States of America is the same response that founding father gave to England. This is hardly an opinion that is out of date, although certainly not a founding father, Rush Limbaugh recently repeated such sentiment. Stating: ”After the election in November — repeal Obamacare, defund it, doesn’t happen. Number of other things the voters who sent all these freshman to Washington to stop, arrest, cease and desist. If it doesn’t happen, we go Egypt on Obama.”
That founding father was James Madison. And although we are encouraged to uphold his example, what is even more important is that he understood then as much as we do now. Because he finished off this letter with this sentence:
“But what degree of madness could ever drive the federal government to such an extremity?” – James Madison Part 4
