Our trip down the road to totalitarianism didn’t start in 1934 but that was the seminal year for the formation of the all powerful federal government. It actually started with Lincoln asserting Federal power over the states by making war on the confederates; but that was on the level of establishing federal supremacy over the states rights. I use 1934 as the year that it really started because that is when unlimited federal power was given over the citizenry. With the much flawed ruling that banned machine guns. the fate of our nation was sealed; by ruling that machine guns affected interstate commerce and were therefore subject to the commerce clause the door was opened to the unlimited abuse of the clause that we now have. With the SCOTUS perverted interpretation of the commerce clause every aspect of American life could be claimed to be under Federal Jurisdiction. From what type of crops a farmer may grow to it being illegal to grow pot in your backyard has been ruled to be subject to the commerce clause. The Fed now dictates everything from your toilet and shower to your light bulbs the Now for the scary part; the Obamacare ruling the National Federation of Independent Business v. Sebelius . A lot of people really haven’t thought about the implications of the ruling. In addition unlimited jurisdiction through the commerce clause the federal government now has the unlimited power to tax; and not the power to tax as set forth in the constitution. That treasonous bastard Justice Roberts has sold our nation into slavery. We can now be compelled to do anything or pay a tremendous “Tax”. There is no limit on the amount of the “Tax” that congress can exact for according to the Roberts court congress makes the call on all taxation. Worried Yet? If not, you should be. Think of all the possibilities: Register or turn in your guns or face a $15,000 tax, submit your DNA or face $10,000 tax or a terrorism screening where you would be compelled to submit your work, financial and family history, your IP address, access to your email accounts and phone records. You See? The possibilities are endless. Whether you are left or right or center, name your biggest fear of the government and it can be found with this ruling. Read it yourself if you don’t believe me. There are no limitations on civil rights or anything else because you don’t have to comply;All you have to do is pay the tax; Congress has the constitutional authority to tax as it wishes according to this ruling. Just wait until the scumbags in Washington figure out how to use this. Each party will claim to be the champion of the people protecting them from abuse and tyrannical taxation while they are positioning themselves to get both houses and the presidency so they can tax and oppress the fuck out of their enemies. But my wonderful story of America doesn’t end here, it only starts here. When you couple unlimited federal jurisdiction and unlimited taxation powers with the increasingly militarized police state you can come up with some very scary scenarios. Anything the police state wants you can be compelled to give them, or be taxed to a pauper, anyone that can afford to not comply will find that under the commerce clause the fed has jurisdiction and they can be compelled by law. To put it plainly and bluntly, we are fucked. There is no way of voting your way out of this. I will never cast a vote again; it does not matter. We have been given over to kings and tyrants by the treasonous scum on our highest court. But in the end the most important questions are: What are you going to do when it begins? Will you submit or resist? Will you go on as if life is normal or will you become Edward Snowden?
