Put not your trust in judges—nor in other berobed or bejeweled personages. To the degree you trust anyone: Trust the people.
Do not lose hope fellow conservatives. While I too woke this morning with a depth of sickness in my belly at hearing the misguided decision of the Supreme Court, I am not one to give up easily. Our fight since we started was never easy and it will not be easy in the future. This decision has further awakened and strengthened the populace to defeat the self-appointed dictator Barack Obama on November 6th. SCOTUS is not the final decision on Obamacare–YOU are. It is up to YOU.
Right now, we may feel helpless. Stop. Think. Use the emotion of anger to spur you forward to what will be a victory in November and beyond. In a prophetic piece in the Weekly Standard, Bill Kristol wrote:
While a defeat for Obamacare in the Court would be nice, the defeat of President Obama at the polls on November 6 is crucial. If electoral victory is achieved, Obamacare can and will be repealed—and more judges of a constitutionalist persuasion will be appointed by the next president. Indeed, one could almost say that a bad Court decision later this month would be a salutary reminder that here the people rule, and that persuading the people is the key task. As Lincoln put it in his first debate with Stephen Douglas, “In this and like communities, public sentiment is everything. With public sentiment, nothing can fail; without it, nothing can succeed. Consequently he who molds public sentiment goes deeper than he who enacts statutes or pronounces decisions.”
Also from the Weekly Standard:
“In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision upholding the constitutionality of Obamacare, the principal choice now facing Americans on November 6 will be whether to keep Obamacare or to repeal it. The question is a binary one, and the answer — expressed almost entirely through their presidential vote — will go a long way toward determining the future course of this great nation.
Yes, the economy is extremely important; and, yes, Obamacare is hurting the economy. But the reason why this election is the most important since the Civil War is not because Mitt Romney would make a far better steward of the economy than President Obama (though he would). Rather, it’s because we are about to decide whether to put what will soon be one-fifth of our economy under the control of the federal government; whether to funnel previously unthinkable amounts of power and money to Washington; and whether this nation conceived in liberty will continue to prioritize liberty.”
Don’t know about you, but I’m donating to Romney. God Bless America
