(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

ObamaKare Court Case To Return This Week:


A state of Florida court case is expected to return this week, with massive implications for the federal government and ObamaKare.


From AOLNews:

(Sept. 14) -- As arguments begin Tuesday in a Florida District Court where 20 state attorneys general and the National Federation of Independent Business are challenging the constitutionality of the health care law, the American people can be forgiven for feeling a bit ill at ease about the direction their country is going. James Madison would feel the same way.

So imagine his response if the Congress of 1789 had proposed a law like the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act -- i.e., Obamacare. Nowhere does the Constitution grant the power to force individuals to buy a product.

Congress has chosen to regulate not only actions, but inaction -- the failure to buy or provide qualifying health insurance.

And, oddly enough, more states will vote on opting out of ObamaKare. From the Washington Times:

DENVER | After taking a beating at the hands of Missouri voters in August, "Obamacare" could be roughed up once again at the ballot box in November.

Following the lead of the successful Missouri initiative, which passed with 71 percent of the vote, Arizonans, Coloradans and Oklahomans will decide this fall whether to approve proposed constitutional amendments that would allow them to opt out of key provisions of President Obama's signature national health care law.

The three initiatives prohibit the government from forcing individuals to buy health care insurance - a "mandate" that critics say violates the U.S. Constitution - and would allow patients and employers to pay providers directly without penalty. The idea is to protect state residents from "the ongoing takeover of health care by government," backers of the Colorado campaign say.

Politicians and their massive spending campaigns -- and yes, of course, that includes Mr Bush -- have placed this country's credence, fiscal strength, defense and even its existence in jeopardy. Mr Obama has purposely and geometrically spent (and plans to spend more) the nation into its highest-ever deficit. He has spent more than anyone. As I documented here, Mr Obama has created the greatest American debt in its history.

BloombergNews reports that the world economy is "decoupling" from the US because of its profligate spending:

Just three years since America began dragging the world into its deepest recession in seven decades, Goldman Sachs Group Inc., Credit Suisse Holdings USA Inc. and BofA Merrill Lynch Global Research are forecasting that this time will be different. Goldman Sachs predicts worldwide growth will slow 0.2 percentage point to 4.6 percent in 2011, even as expansion in the U.S. falls to 1.8 percent from 2.6 percent.

Underpinning their analysis is the view that international reliance on U.S. trade has diminished and is too small to spread the lingering effects of America’s housing bust. Providing the U.S. pain doesn’t roil financial markets as it did in the credit crisis, Goldman Sachs expects a weakening dollar, higher bond yields outside the U.S. and stronger emerging-market equities.

"Goldman Sachs expects a weaker dollar. . ."

This coming ObamaKare case will, therefore, provide an indicator for our future. Will we survive, or will we not? ObamaKare will spend this nation into oblivion.

It is not much more complicated than that. There is no spending oneself out of debt. That is a stupid and delusionary tactic.

And, oh yes: continued and enforced by a stupid and delusionary administration.

What is that definition of insanity again?

Spending oneself out of debt = digging oneself out of a hole.

When you hit bottom, stop digging. When you run out of money, stop spending. If that means personnel go home and don't pull a paycheck, well, welcome to 98% of the American workforce over the last couple of years. And I'm referring to GOVERNMENT personnel here, you know, the ones who make "nonessential" a redundant term.

I saw at Rasmussen I think, where the numbers againt Obamacare had dropped some this week. Not sure why that would be.

However, I believe each state should join in a suit, or file their own suit, against the mandates. Should be interesting times.

I mentioned that very important point to my liberal neighbor who so favors ObamaKare. My neighbor jumped onto his moral high horse and had an absolute rant against all conservatives.

It's always an uphill battle when we cite the Constitution in any discussion with a liberal.
