Nowhere in that Section is Congress granted the power to compel individual citizens to do anything. And if you're referring to the General Welfare clause, that refers to the Country, as a whole, not individual Mandates. General Welfare would be Defense, arbitrating disputes between States, and enforcing the Constitution.

Of course, there is that pesky little reference to "collecting...imposts... ", an impost being a tax or similar compulsory payment.

So tell us all what we need to know, Genius.

Admit it, you have never read Alinsky‘s “Rules for Radicals,” much less,“Mien Kampf” or “Manifesto of the Communist Party” written by Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels.

You are a know-nothing, spewing BS poured into your empty, sponge-like brain. You are too lazy to read a frigging book or two in order to educate yourself.

Start with,“The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich: A History of Nazi Germany” by author William L. Shirer. You will soon discover how an entire nation of sheeple like YOU were seduced into destruction.

Ah yes, the goals and promises of politicians representing The National Socialist German Workers' Party (the Nazi party) were too good to be true, yet an entire nation was willfully blind, ignorant and deceived. WAKE-UP!!!!

The same place where it says you have the right to drive an automobile.

Anything promoting the "General Welfare" is considered a "mandate."

George Tush's UNFUNDED MANDATES included the Tush Tax Cuts for the wealthy, both wars, and Medicare Part D.

Why do Rethuglicans only have problems with "mandates" when so-called "liberal" presidents engage in them?

Or when closeted Thugs like Larry Craig dance their way into someone's heart?

Now that's what I call a "MANDATE"

LOL

Guess that means IG gets to add an addition to the double wide.

Being a shut-in and all, a triple wide makes more sense, and room for a backhoe to be ready when they need to move him to a government run, taxpayer financed Medicaid facility.

Just don't forget to change my colostomy bag every couple of weeks, whether it needs it or not.

I hope it doesn't hold fond memories of that time you and the fellers sat around guzzling PBR and watching "Deliverance" on the nine inch screen with the coat hanger antenna, while one of them was sayin', "It don't get no better than this".

If you're referring to the book, Rules for Radicals, yes I have read it, although it's been many years.
Poe likens it to some socialist manifesto, which obviously it is not.
Gingrich demonizes Alinski as a community organizer parallel to Obama, which is the tea party rally call to distract and dissuade from the fact that the 1% should somehow be privileged from being asked to pay the same taxes or share in the social burdens that the remaining 99% do.
That's something the plutocratic right will do anything to extinguish.
A brilliant, fatual comebak!
