What Should Americans Do After the Supreme Court ObamaCare Ruling?
3) ObamaCare must be defeated politically.
The American people will have one final chance to kill ObamaCare at the ballot box this November, by electing politicians committed to repealing it. If Americans value their lives, they must repudiate ObamaCare soundly at the ballot box. The elected officials who supported it two years ago should sent packing.
This must include holding Republicans’ feet to the fire. As Michelle Malkin notes, some GOP leaders are too willing to support elements of ObamaCare out of political expediency, even though that runs counter to core principles of economic freedom.
Ultimately, the political fight against ObamaCare must be part of a broader fight for limited government that respects our freedoms. The proper function of government is to protect individual rights, such as our rights to free speech, property, and contract. Only those who initiate physical force or fraud can violate our rights. A properly limited government protects us from criminals who steal, murder, etc., as well as from foreign aggressors. But it should otherwise leave honest people alone to live peacefully, not deprive us of our freedoms in the name of “universal health care.”
We can still reclaim our freedoms. Reversing our present course won’t be easy. We will have our work cut out for us, through November and afterwards. But the opportunity is ours for the taking — as long as we are willing to seize it.
