Former Michigan GOP spokesperson suggested that because of yesterday's SCOTUS ruling that the ACA mandate was indeed constitutional that it might be time for an armed rebellion.
What the hell is wrong with the extreme right wing (Tea Party) of the republican party who are constantly whining about the supposed tyranny of the Obama administration?
Here's the email that he sent out to the media after the ruling:
Is Armed Rebellion Now Justified?
Implicit in Benjamin Franklin's fabled response at the conclusion of
the Constitutional Convention was a dire warning: That the Republic
would one day devolve into tyranny unless we the people prevented it.
In 2008, we the people elected Barack Obama as president, and the
100-year progressive trek to tyranny begun in 1912 with Woodrow Wilson's
election was complete. It cannot be said too many times — for the
purposes of emphasis and clarity — that the Constitution was possible
ONLY AFTER the American Revolution; and that the war itself would not
have been possible without the collective agreement, as so eloquently
articulated in the Declaration of Independence, that the course of human
events will sometimes justify one group of people to sever themselves
from their oppressors.
In other words, America itself was possible only after its people
summoned the will to risk their lives and their futures — as well as
those of their children — for a freedom they did not enjoy but knew was
their gift from God. Along with their desire to be free came their
willingness to engaged in armed rebellion for their freedom.
If government can mandate that I pay for something I don't want, then
what is beyond its power? If the Supreme Court's decision Thursday
paves the way for unprecedented intrusion into personal decisions, then
has the Republic all but ceased to exist? If so, then is armed rebellion
God willing, this oppression will be lifted and America free again before the first shot is fired.
Patriot my @ss, these nutters are out of control, what say you?
