A Long Train Of Abuses

Author: Brent Ebert


To compel a man to subsidize with his taxes the propagation of ideas which he disbelieves and abhors is sinful and tyrannical.

~Thomas Jefferson~

As Americans stood collectively over their Twitter feeds and Facebook posts this morning, a killing blow to the solar plexus of federalism and individual liberty took place. What this means… the Constitution, our arbiter of freedom, passed away. Liberty and free choice is being eulogized world-wide.

What we must remember is the Supreme Court did not rule that Obamacare is a fundamental “natural” right the founders outlined in the Bill of Rights. What was upheld today was no more than a law. A law that is subject to repeal.

True, I am deeply saddened by this monumental power grab. But, as I can’t help but feel the collective anxiety of America, I’m confident that “We the People” will see past and set out to change this usurpation. Be prepared to see the second largest ground swelling of grassroots patriotism in our history. A revolution, not of guns and powder, but of ballot.

A precious few times in our history have Americans united in a singular goal. I look forward to the fact that my son will be witness to the march of liberty. A true peaceful revolution to reign in government is at hand.

… But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.
