You WILL buy healthcare

modern survivalThe Obama regime’s new health care mandate requires all American citizens to purchase health insurance. This should come as a surprise to no one. It’s simply more of the same from a federal government that sees fit to pack its citizens into a smaller and smaller box in order to squeeze more and more money from us to pay for boondoggle policies. Holistic Survival just took a quick look through our well-worn copy of the U.S. Constitution and couldn’t find that health insurance requirement anywhere.

Must have overlooked it. We’ll try again later.

Meanwhile, a baker’s dozen number of state attorneys general were waiting for Mr. Obama to sign the health care overhaul so they could join a lawsuit against it, claiming the requirement to purchase health care was unconstitutional. In the interest of pointing out who among us still believes in liberty, the states participating in the lawsuits are listed below:

Alabama, Colorado, Ohio, Michigan, Nebraska, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Washington, and Louisiana. Virginia is filing it’s own lawsuit.

Do the lawsuits have a chance to be heard? Some legal scholars believe they will be thrown out as frivolous, lacking standing, especially in light of the fact that Congress is constitutionally allowed to regulate interstate commerce. The claimants say those who don’t have insurance aren’t participating in commerce because they opted out of the medical system. How it all shakes out is anyone’s guess.

The question you have to ask yourself is do you believe that humankind was meant to be free or should we accept the fact that our future days will increasingly be spent under the yoke of federal oppression?
