    The senate will soon pass their version of the federal government's socialist takeover of our country a compromise bill between the senate and house will soon be worked out and given to the president to sign perhaps by Christmas!

    This is NOT the end of the fight! The federal government is CLEARLY over stepping it's constitutional authority, and the States MUST act by nullifying the law in it's borders and/or exercising it's duty to interpose on behalf of it's citizens, from it's implementation.

    There is also the possibility of a constitutional convention called by the states to act against the federal government's attempt to expand it's powers beyond the scope of our constitution.

    Contact your state legislators. Tell them to exercise nullification of any federal law that restricts your freedom! We must do what we can to avoid violence!

      Good impassioned post but what will you do when every cent you get goes to the your health care insurance?  16% of the GDP is now tied up in health care. The costs have doubled in the last three years.  There is nothing in your post that address it.  Your freedom is for sale to the health care industry and when they have all your money how does freedom work for a poor man?

      Consider adding some rational thought to your post.  You may actually win a fight someday.  Hyperbole only incites your naive cohorts who already believe this tripe.  In the end, you will still fail to have it your way against the will of the majority.

    Correct. Right now the big, bad insurance companies are laughing at the average American citizen over this issue; all the way to the bank.

    I agree we need to restrain the government from restricting our individual freedom and from providing services that might aid us.  In addition to health care, let's keep them from building roads, educating the young, creating laws and enacting policies.  we might as well just send them all home and save money on paying the government at all.  With this freedom, we then can have the right to die of lung cancer and heart disease because cannot afford the private health care most our employers offer us, and if we do subscribe to the systems, we later learn we aren't covered for that, particular malady.   Get the government out of our lives.  That's what Jefferson and those silly fore-fathers wanted.
