rustbucket hopes this was all a political calculation:
Dear Chief Justice Roberts:rwfromkansas is a Freeper with a rosy speculative future for once:
I hope to read in your memoirs some day that you issued your atrocious Obamacare ruling in order to revitalize the 2010 groundswell of voter disgust with Obama, Obamacare, and Democrats in general.
If this is why you issued your ruling, then I salute you for putting your own reputation in the toilet in order to save the country from another disastrous Obama term. I hope it works.
On its face, however, your ruling will go down as a modern day equivalent of the Dred Scott ruling.
The court majority also gave conservatives a major victory by giving states more rights to not participate in parts of the law as well.little jeremiah puts forth the latest conspiracy theory re: Roberts.
That restricts federal power, as does the overwhelming victory on the Commerce Clause that will resonate for decades to come.
The overall outcome IS BAD....IT’S AWFUL THE BILL REMAINS.
But, in the long run, this very well could end up being good for us and the country so long as we can get the law repealed.
John Robert’s changed his vote at the last minute under duress.
The reason he changed his vote at the 11th hour was a form of soft extortion.
Ruth Bader Ginsberg threatened to announce her retirement at the end of this term and give Obama the chance to appoint a new Justice in her place if Obama Care was overturned.
If Roberts changed his vote and not strike down ObamaCare she agreed not to retire until the next Presidential term.
Under the circumstances he did his best to come up with the best possible compromise with Ginsberg - one that put the future of ObamaCare directly in the hands of voters in this next election. The fate of Obama Care is now firmly in the hands of the electorate and 2012 will be a referendum on Obama Care.
formosa isn't buying it:
Folks are idiots to attempt to spin the actions of Roberts as somehow beneficial. They are not. All he has done is said hey the fed. govt. has unlimited power to tax any American citizen they choose to for any reason they want to.
The IRS can be an instrument to police the behavior of individual citizens. There is no need for objectivity or fairness in their power to tax. Some people can be forced into slavery using this power and that is okay.
Roberts is insane and wrong. He was not genius or clever.
sonic109 is not so easily distracted from his rage:
Roberts has stabbed America in the back . Revolution time is here ..I REFUSE TO PLAY ALONG
sonic109 also thinks only losers won't riot:
Roberts GAVE THEM an out ..HE brought up the idea that it’s a taxJRandomFreeper has a plan:
May he rot in hell
WELL WHERE IS THE OUTRAGE FOLKS ?

WHO IS ORGANIZING IT ? I HAVEN’T SEEN A WORD OF REACTION WITH TEETH IN IT
If we dont tear DC down then we deserve this
The experiment with the Federal Government has gone wrong and should be ended by the States that established it.MHGinTN offers up some legal analysis re: statutory construction:
It's easy to say the EU should dissolve because they are having problems, but it's more difficult when our founders set up a 'more perfect union'.
Time enough. We've seen the outcome. It doesn't suit my needs and has become destructive of those ends.
We don't need a federal government.
I can’t seem to find inthe Constitution where the chief unJustice of the subPreme court is licit in defining what is a tax when the Congress has passed a bill and it is signed into law wihtout being defined as a tax.
Can you help me out here? If it is a tax, then little barry bastard commie (Roberts’ boss, obviously) cannot unilaterally exclude whole groups and industries from the lawfully passed tax, so little barry should ne impeached and removed for violating his oath to the Constitution. If it is not a tax then the fool pirate Roberts should have rejected the entire freakin’ monstrosity based upon what he opened with. The man is about as sound as gummy bears.MHGinTN also posits that Robers is under the control of evil International Environmentalists:
Eventually, conservatives are going to realize how this little scam by Roberts and the leftist slugs on the ‘high’ court is a brick in a well designed wall of UN style rule over Americans.
Since the government has now been given unlimited power to tax ANYTHING in order to herd behavior of the sheeple, what is to now stop the democrats from establishing mandates to abide by UN global warming dictates?
Follow the money. These criminal bastards are setting US up to be herded via taxation into behaving and paying for whatever the criminal Congress and presidents dictate as influenced by the UN or global governance council.
If we the people do not halt this immediately —with extreme prejudice— these criminal bastards will herd US right under the global governance rule via taxation on behaviors they wish to modify.
And THAT is exactly why the pirate Roberts was placed on the court under Boosh. It lends s specious air of conservative compromise to the pure fascist agenda of the globalist with whom Boosh made his bed and Paulson pull the covers over.
chris37 knows forced gay marriages and abortion of white people is now possible!
What if congress passes a bill that said if is a man you do not marry another man then you must pay a tax?
What if congress passes a bill that says if as a woman you do not marry another woman then you must pay a tax?
What if congress passes a bill that states that if you do not abort your second child you must pay a tax?
What if congress passes a bill that says if a white person does not abort their first child then they must pay a tax?
WHat John Roberts did was give the us federal government unlimited power.
They can make us do whatever the hell they want, and they are sick, twisted, evil people.
