At the close of the Constitutional Convention of 1787 as he left Independence Hall on the final day of deliberation a bystander asked Benjamin Franklin, "Well, Doctor, what have we got — a Republic or a Monarchy?"
Franklin's famous reply was, "A Republic, if you can keep it."
When the final vote on Obama's health care reform bill was tallied on March 21st, we lost it.
The only hope for our Republic lies in the third branch of government, the Judiciary, which is supposed to keep the other two branches in check. Numerous States' Attorneys General are preparing to file suit as soon as Barack signs the bill.
The main problem with this bill is that it doesn't do everything Obama is claiming it does. There will be a lot of uninttended consequences, there are always are when a single piece of legislation is longer than a Harry Potter novel.
The unintended consequences are not what I'm afraid of the most. I'm afraid of the hidden language that Obama and his cronies wrote into the bill that nobody knows about yet. I'm even more afraid Obama will find new energy to pass "Cap and Tax" and amnesty for illegal aliens bills before he loses control of Congress in November.
