My name is PolyKahr and I am a grumpy old man. I have seen individual rights sharply decline over the years I have been on this planet. I wonder what will be left when my grand daughter comes of age. More than anything, I want to turn back the clock. I want to leave this earth knowing that individual liberty has been restored, and that she can live her lifetime in freedom.
I have said this for months, but of course, I am no Constitutional scholar, or even a lawyer. ObamaCare, originating in the Senate as it did, is not Constitutional as a tax because of the Origination Clause. Daniel Smyth has a more complete analysis at the American Thinker today entitled Origination Clause: Die Harder ObamaCare. I had been waiting for someone to pick up on this fact, and Smyth not only provides a good analysis, but shows you some of the sausage making that went on behind the scene. It isn't pretty, but it puts on display the utter contempt these arrogant weasels feel for We the People.
