THE TALE OF TWO BLACK MEN
It is amazing how misguided people can be. I have in the past written about one Anthony Johnson, a black man, who was the first person to be ruled judicially the life time owner a black person for no fault of the persons owned. His tactic was later tried on some white indentured servants and failed. The die was cast. No one even guessed that this would become the precedent that made it legal to own blacks but not whites. Whites mainly owned blacks but some 2500 blacks also owned black slaves. Now comes President Barack Obama, known as a black man. He has put forth Obamacare. He took it to court and won; making it possible for the first time in history, that a US citizen could be legally forced to buy a product. Like the other case by a black man, few have considered to what this could lead.
One brilliant person, a doctor, have thought about what it could mean for us all Dr, Ben Carson, the gifted hands brain surgeon, thinks it could lead to slavery more devastating than anything since the ugly physical enslaving of blacks. Chief justice John Roberts and the court had made it clear that the law could not stand constitutionally the way the president had told the people it would, under the commerce clause. You might remember, Obama had argued clearly to the American people and their Representatives that this was not a tax. Upon realizing that the court would not uphold it under the commerce clause, the Obama Administration then pulled a bait and switch and told the court that it was a tax. If the government is allowed to make the citizens do whatever it wants just by construing its objective in a taxing format, all freedom has gone out the window; with possibly even less hope of being resolved than the former physical slavery. This time it would supposedly cover all Americans.
There are people so caught up into race politics that they are debating what Dr. Carson said, instead of what the court ruling could do to us. Like the Anthony Johnson ruling, people are just too short sighted. What all could the government twist to force you to do through the taxing system? Anything having to do with health, including 18, 000 pages that can be changed at the whim of the secretary of health; understanding that before the addition of the extra thousands of pages, that law already called for the Sec. of Health 1200 times to make lone determinations that affect everyone. In Short just about every thing can be connected to health. What is it that cannot? If anything is left out all they have to do is use the Secretary of health to declare it to be under the law. In extreme cases they could pass another law connecting it to taxation. It is clear that use of energy, food, clothing, businesses, your social life and even your religion can be connected to taxation. Some Churches are already held in check by government threatening their 501c3 status. And just think, the IRS who has been collecting private information, donors, email and even phone calls has been put in charge of enforcing the individual mandate. This information could be used illegally as is in the news right now or it could be used for blackmail. Be honest, we know that Dr. Ben Carson is brilliant, but cannot we all actually see this is a clear and present danger?
