The question of whether or not Obama, vis-à-vis the federal government, has the constitutional authority to mandate that we buy health insurance under threat of penalty will now presumably be decided by the Supreme Court.
The question that begs an answer is: If the high court rules Obama does not have the constitutional authority to force us to purchase health insurance, will Obama abide by the ruling or will he pull a Franklin D. Roosevelt and attempt to overrule the court's decision?
With his track record, can you honestly be confident of Obama obeying the SCOTUS should they not rule as he wants? Did he not tell lies about the court and berate the justices during his State of the Union speech? He ignored the ruling of the lower court when it ruled the government option was not constitutional.
I say this man's narcissism will not permit him to simply abide by a ruling he doesn't like. Roosevelt didn't and it worked – why should Obama be any different?

A far more important question is: Will conservatives be smart enough and tough enough to understand that their promise to cut the size and scope of government and put an end to the criminality in Washington is what got them elected to Congress in 2010?
Or will they misread the political climate once again and run scared – right into the arms of their socialist pals across the aisle – and hand the only Marxist president in American history a default victory that will give him the time he needs to finish the job of destroying what is left of the U.S. economy?

From the true conservative's perspective, Mitt Romney, the GOP leadership's pick, is a tragic comedy. If he is nominated, millions of principled conservatives will stay home on Election Day, and he will lose. This is discounting any vote tampering, cadaver voting, noncitizen voting, voter intimidation, or any of the other devices President Obama's surrogates (such as the "defunct" ACORN) are likely to employ, as they did in 2008.
There's an object lesson in how GOP leaders have dismissed the tea party "and everyone who looks like them," so to speak. The objective of Republican elites in purposefully losing the presidency in 2012 would be to capitalize on the strife to which four more years of Barack Hussein Obama will most certainly give rise.

I am sickened by the Republican field. With few exceptions they not only lack the experience to be president, but also common sense. Not that Barack Hussein Obama, the mullah in chief, is the answer. He and his socialist, radical, Muslim-loving comrades need to take a hike to Egypt where they can join the Muslim Brotherhood and rule over a country more suited to their hearts' desires.

In my view, it is to our advantage as well as our responsibility to elucidate for those not too far gone in their ideology or delusion that capitalism and wealth are not the culprits. Immorality is the real culprit, manifesting in greed, deceit, vanity and a host of others. This is what has facilitated those in the banking and various other industries being willing to get into bed with socialists in government – like the errant manufacturers in my hypothetical scenarios. Then there are those socialists themselves, who are also in it for reasons of ideology and power, like President Obama.

Much to my fascination, most conservative media pundits continue to scratch their heads and insist that "Barack Obama is just in over his head" when talking about his "failed policies." The idea that he is actually trying to destroy the last vestiges of the free market and freedom in America is such a radical thought that their mainstream minds will not allow them to even consider it.

When a commentator, whose audience is on the same page politically, ventures into the area of metaphysics and biblical prophecy, they are pushing the envelope to some degree.
One might even say they run the risk of straining their credibility, even with avowed Christians – similar to when we, for example, point out inconsistencies in President Obama's birth narrative, his undeniably forged birth certificate, or when we charge that he looks, walks and quacks like a communist, despite having failed to make such a declaration publicly.
