John Roberts is why people hate lawyers

Roberts’ rationalization of why the government can enslave the population through taxation is an excellent example of mealy mouthed legalistic mumbo jumbo that makes people not trust lawyers.

It may not be the Courts’ responsibility to protect Legislature or Executive branches from their own stupidity and incompetence.  It may not even be the Courts’ responsibility to protect the electorate from their laziness, shortsightedness and lack of interest.  But it is not the responsibility of the Court created by the Constitution to go out of its way to make up the excuses for an abusive Legislature.

So under the Roberts’ decision, it is still unconstitutional for Congress to make laws abridging freedom of speech, but is it unconstitutional for Congress to tax speech it disapproves of?  Or conversely, can Congress ‘tax’ people who do not say what Congress mandates to say?

Since liberals have no love of that freedom of speech clause in the Constitution, let’s use an example that they might identify with.  Infanticide is the inalienable right of women granted by no clause of the Constitution.  But it’s there.  They swear.  So no state can ban abortions.  But since the power to tax somehow is completely divorced from the behavior it affects, can a state tax abortion?  How about a $Billion tax on abortion services.  Per event.  Paid by the provider so it couldn’t be construed as interfering with the mother’s rights.  I bet that would change liberals’ perception of the ‘Taxation’ clause.

And now a question for the Chief ‘Justice’…what makes you think that the people who created the Constitution, who survived the American Revolution, who brought forth on this continent a new country conceived in liberty, would put in a clause giving the government unlimited power to tax?  Really?  The entire American Revolution started AS A TAX REVOLT!  If they believed in an all powerful, abusive government…they could have stayed British subjects.

So allow me to say that the Supreme Court’s decision, that is your decision, on the Affordable Care Act is a major fail.  Good job.  Your place in history is secure and the Leftists love you…for now.
