Our country is being “slaughtered” from within – The Constitution, Obamacare, and the unprecedented time we find ourselves in


Constitution? What Constitution?

I have followed somewhat closely the goings-on in Washington with the Healthcare Government Takeover.    I know most people do not follow that closely, but I believe many Americans are very aware of the corruption and outright arrogance being shown by Obama and the Democrats on their Obamacare bills in the House and Senate.

But it is much worse than you likely want to believe.

Republicans have all but been shut out of the process and the backroom deal-making to buy votes and outright bribery by Obama and Dems is like nothing we’ve ever seen in this country. And many Republicans have clearly stated the dangers and the idiocy of the Democrats’ plan for healthcare and their attempts to cram it down our throats.

I believe this is an epic battle this week with the Obamacare bill and will go down in history as the week America spiraled into decline or the week she got her footing back and moved back up the mountain of freedom, the Constitution, and smaller government.

I am fearful that the former is most likely even if only because the Democrats have flouted the Constitution and Americans will have no choice but to fight against it in ways we’ve never had to do in modern time.  Frankly, I think it will be hard, will take perseverance and could get ugly.  The latter is likely if we fight this we all we have, however.

As many have said, this bill is not about healthcare but about control.

While Democrats are putting out a “shell bill” today in the House that is supposedly going to be completely overhauled this week with goodies to buy votes…they apparently still do not have the votes for an up or down vote on the bill.

However, since Pelosi has thrown around the possibility of the “Slaughter Solution” late last week, that option is still on the table and a quite likely option.  I believe that as long as the votes are not apparent in an up or down vote, the Slaughter Solution will be attempted by the Democrats.

The Slaughter Solution is unconstitutional and completely unprecedented.  Basically, Louise Slaughter in the House is drawing up NEW rules for  the House.  Pelosi would hold a vote on this new rule.   What is this rule?  Basically, the rule would say that once this rule was approved, the House would DEEM the Senate bill passed by the House and move the bill to be signed by Obama.

This is unconstitutional because Article I, Section 7 says the following:

Every Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a Law,be presented to the President of the United States; If he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it, with his Objections to that House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the Objections at large on their Journal, and proceed to reconsider it. If after such Reconsideration two thirds of that House shall agree to pass the Bill, it shall be sent, together with the Objections, to the other House, by which it shall likewise be reconsidered, and if approved by two thirds of that House, it shall become a Law. But in all such Cases the Votes of both Houses shall be determined by Yeas and Nays, and the Names of the Persons voting for and against the Bill shall be entered on the Journal of each House respectively.

EVERY bill that makes it to the President’s desk must be VOTED on by both the House and Senate with the EXACT same language.  The Slaughter Solution ignores the vote on the bill in the House and essentially bypasses this article of the Constitution by DEEMING the vote passed instead of actually voting on it.

THIS IS MONUMENTAL and you should be angry about it.  This sets an ugly precedent.  Who’s to say that the next bill Obama and Pelosi believe needs to be passed won’t be passed with another such rule without voting on it?  Essentially if Democrats are allowed to do this our Constitution is null and void.

I don’t like the sound of that and I believe this must be fought with everything we have.

But what do we do?  Susan Ann Hiller at RedState.com studies the Constitution and Declaration of Independence for an answer in her piece “Consent of the Governed”.  It is well worth a read.

Also at RedState.com today, a post by writer E Pluribus Unum caught my eye.  This post talks about the Slaughter Rule but also clearly outlines the danger of it and what may happen if the Democrats choose to go through with it.

Which brings us to the Slaughter Rule, in which Democrats just flat-out defy the Constitution and declare a bill “passed” which has not been voted on. It’s been discussed at length here, here, and here, by constitutional scholars, veteran congressional experts, and other VSGs (very smart guys)…..

…..Now America is flat irritated. And if the Dems try sporting this blatant middle finger at the Constitution and America, we will all see what happens when America is finally angry. Like Dan Perrin, I think Democrats will back down before doing this. But we’ve both underestimated their stupidity several times in this process. Nothing’s a safe bet anymore.

……..But if they try this stunt, the ensuing electoral revolt will be epic and irreversible, resulting in a Democrat Party crippled so irredeemably that I predict a new center-left party will emerge in the next 10 years,…..

But that is November. What will happen in March?

Six things I can think of, the first three within days. I couldn’t say what order, because things will move pretty quickly. So I list them how my mind sorts them.

1. The Supreme Court will strike it down within days.

I don’t remember which of the 3 authors I cited said this (or maybe I heard it on the radio), so I don’t know who to cite. But every American has standing here, due to the exceedingly far reach of the Health Care Takeover bill. Somebody will sue. I predict GOP members of Congress will, and it will go straight to the Supreme Court. They will strike down the whole caboodle, and they will do it almost immediately. Probably 6-3, with Breyer and Kennedy voting with the originalists. Their ruling is very likely to include language extremely damning of the behavior of Democrats.

2. Numerous states will declare statutorily under the 10th Amendment that this law will be unenforceable within their borders.

I’m guessing 20 states. The move has been afoot for awhile anyway, and this blatant flouting of the Constitution will trigger the America-loving, freedom-loving instincts into bold (if rash) action. And while they’re at it, they’re going to say the same thing about everything emanating from the EPA.

3. There will be public anti-government outrage so great that it will boil into violence.

I do not condone this; it will be ugly and more than a little scary. Lest I give anybody fresh ideas, I will not expound upon it other than to say it will be directed, not generalized — directed at objects, property, and symbols of government, not at people. Although those who voted for this Slaughter Rule would be wise to perhaps hang around in Washington for awhile.

4. (Even more) new candidates opposing incumbent Democrats will come out of the woodwork.

Many already have, but many good ones have considered, then declined. Many of those will change their minds, even in blue states. And new ones will pop up like dandelions. And a whole bunch of them will win. The leftist partisan national media currently think Republicans might, juuuuuuuust MIGHT, get 40 seats and the House back. Idiots. It was already going to be 80 and 8. But after this stunt, it might be 120 and 14. This is what happens when the entire center turns on a party.

5. State AGs will bring charges against sitting Congressmen for whatever they can plausibly pin on them.

Sedition is the actual crime (IMHO), and that’s a federal charge. But no USA will touch this, since they work for the president. Because members of Congress cannot be recalled, citizens will be thirsting for vengeance. Very loudly. State AG’s will be chomping at the bits to exact SOME form of payback, encouraged (or pushed) by their citizenry. Things like corruption, conspiracy, bribery, racketeering, tax fraud, and so on, will be easy indictments. As the last few months have shown, congressional Democrats have been so thoroughly corrupt for so long, nobody will even have to trump up anything.

6. Republicans will shut down business in Congress until January 5.

Then it will REALLY get fun.

Democrats will lose the country days after they pull the Slaughter Rule. They’ll have their illegal law both flouted and overruled, their members will be subject to investigations and indictments, and not a single item of interest will be signed into law, nor will any appointment be approved, before January 5, when a hundred or more of them leave Washington for good.

Let’s hope he’s right about that.  Call all of the House members who are possible changes to yes votes.  A list  is here.

  1. Fantastic post! The whole thing makes me ill, really really ill.

  2. […] ANYTHING to pass this monstrosity and change (for the worse) the fabric of our society and markets permanently.  It makes me sad every time I think about it.  How in the world did 52% of voters believe this man and his statist, anti-American leader cohorts in Congress would be good for our country?   Gag.
