Assume you understood that Obamacare had nothing to do with healthcare but with the imposition of absolute control over the people, that it was 100% unconstitutional, and though actively being implemented, was unlawful and could be legally ignored by the people and the states, or could possibly be overturned by a future court.
If you supported this program, what would be a fail safe solution to ensure it could never be eliminated?
Remember Rahm Emanuel’s quote “You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”
Following suit, Washington created a crisis of unsustainable spending which will force our economic collapse unless immediately addressed.
The carefully crafted “solution” is to develop a groundswell of support for a “common-sense” Balanced Budget Amendment forcing Washington to limited spending to what it is able to collect — theoretically averting this government created catastrophe.
What are the actual ramifications of a Balanced Budget Amendment?
Spending will no longer be based on delegated constitutionally authority, but on what government is able to collect through taxation — a very significant difference. The end result will be that Congress can spend money at its sole discretion to promote any program whatsoever – as long as it doesn’t spend more than it collects. Think of the incentive to impose the highest tax possible, on every aspect of society, to fund this insatiable lust for power.
Funding of programs which are now unconstitutional, such as Obamacare, will be immediately be re-classified as constitutional — as long as they can be funded without incurring a deficit. If money is tight Congress can use its discretion to cut critical programs such as defense and immigration — unless additional money can be extorted from the people.
The true solution, which the establishment, media, and talking heads will not address, is to enforce the existing provisions of the Constitution which restrict federal taxation and spending to that directly needed to provide for our defense, maintain our sovereignty, and represent our interests in world affairs. When adhered to throughout the majority of our history, federal spending averaged just 2-3% of GDP, we had no income tax, no IRS, no debt, and a vibrant economy which elevated our nation to a world class superpower in every regard.
Government despises our Constitution because a free people have no need of federal oversight or control. Passage of the Balanced Budget Amendment will achieve the long sought after goal of allowing Congress to rule by its discretion, and will irrevocably destroy any concept of a constitutionally limited government of the people.
We must think before we act.
