States Find Rx for Obama Cramdown

A oppressed nation turns its lonely eyes to the forgotten Constitution
Idaho, the first state to sue the federal government over the health care overhaul, has announced plans to resort to an obscure 18th century legal remedy that recognizes a state’s right to nullify any federal law that the state has deemed unconstitutional.

The doctrine, known as nullification, has its roots in the brand of governance practiced by the nation’s founding fathers. It was used as early as 1799 by then-law professor Thomas Jefferson, who wrote in a response to federal laws passed amid an undeclared naval war against France that
nullification, by those sovereignties, of all unauthorized acts … is the rightful remedy.
As a legal theory, nullification is grounded in the assumption that states, and not the U.S. Supreme Court, are the ultimate arbiter in cases where Congress and the president have “run amok.”

In Idaho, use of the doctrine to invalidate the health care reform bill is being championed by both state Sen. Monty Pearce and Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter speech, who recently told Idaho residents, “we are actively exploring all our options — including nullification.” Pearce plans to introduce a nullification bill in the state legislature early next week.

Idaho is not the only state considering nullification as a remedy. Six others, including Maine, Montana, Oregon, Nebraska, Texas and Wyoming, are also considering bills that would in essence nullify the president’s signature on the reform law.

Roberts Rules Gates-Immelt Out of Order


Socialists Believe In Class Warfare

But regulars shrug when Left spreads the wealth
I am more than a bit puzzled by the recent claim by a reader that wealth redistribution benefits the upper class. Just whose wealth do you suppose it is that is being redistributed (and not back to the "upper class")?

Conveniently neglected are these facts: In 2008, while the upper 1 percent of taxpayers paid 38.02 percent of all income taxes, 40 percent paid none at all. The top 1 percent of American households may receive more pretax income than the bottom 40 percent and own 40 percent of total household wealth, but they also pay 40 percent of the tax dollars that the reader somehow thinks belongs to the bottom 40 percent because it's not fair for the 1 percent to have more.

The American dream was based on the premise of equal opportunity, not equal results, and some have been more successful than others.

This class warfare being spawned by this administration and advocates of "spreading the wealth" is precisely the goal of socialist regimes. It has never worked — sooner or later, it collapses when a large portion of the populace just quits working while waiting for someone else to take care of him or her.

Nowhere can I find in the Constitution the power of the government to take property of one citizen and give it to another. It is socialism, all right; and no amount of rationalization can change it.
