Less Government President Seton Motley’s remarks at Tuesday’s Tea Party Patriots Road to Repeal ObamaCare rally (though he sometimes goes extemporaneous):
“Are these mics hot?
“First, we are very pleased the Supreme Court decided not to wait to hear this case until after the election – when they would have more flexibility.
“Because there is plenty of unconstitutionality on which to rule right now – that cannot wait until more convenient times for ObamaCare proponents.
“The Constitution is the ultimate pre-existing condition.
“The Constitution ascribes the federal government limited, enumerated powers. Mandating that everyone purchase health insurance is, quite simply, not one of them.
“Neither is a virtual takeover of 1/6th of the economy – the entire health care sector. Which is what ObamaCare, in its essence, is.
“There are thousands of attacks on our freedom in ObamaCare. Attacks we’ve uncovered – and attacks not yet unearthed. Because the Democrats passed ObamaCare over two years ago – and we are still finding out what is in it.
“The First Amendment assault that is President Obama’s abortion pill-birth control mandate demonstrates yet again that ObamaCare, in totality, is an unconstitutional affront to our individual liberty.
“Our right to exist as sovereign, autonomous individuals – and not as subjects of a government collective.
“ObamaCare – and the impudent insolence of those who passed it – gave rise to the Tea Party, Andrew Breitbart’s army, and a whole host of like-minded freedom movements that represent the Great Awakening of the American people.
“We were the Silent Majority – we are no longer silent.
“We believe in our Constitutional government system. ObamaCare is well outside its bounds.
“It needs to go.”
