Obamacare requires companies to purchase health plans with abortive procedures - and requires people to purchase these health plans.....

A little U.S. Supreme Court history, which is fitting: The original Judiciary Act of 1789 set the number of justices at six. When the Federalists were defeated in 1800, the lame-duck Congress reduced the size of the court to five — hoping to deprive President Jefferson of an appointment. The incoming Democratic Congress repealed the Federalist measure (leaving the number at six), and then in 1807 increased the size of the court to seven, giving Jefferson an additional appointment. In 1837, the number was increased to nine, affording the Democrat Andrew Jackson two additional appointments. During the Civil War, to insure an anti-slavery, pro-Union majority on the bench, the court was increased to 10. When a Democrat, Andrew Johnson, became president upon Lincoln’s death, a Republican Congress voted to reduce the size to seven (achieved by attrition) to guarantee Johnson would have no appointments. After Ulysses S. Grant was elected in 1868, Congress restored the court to nine. That gave Grant two new appointments. The court had just declared unconstitutional the government’s authority to issue paper currency (greenbacks). Grant took the opportunity to appoint two justices sympathetic to the administration. When the reconstituted court convened, it reheard the legal tender cases and reversed its decision (5-4). The most recent attempt to alter the size of the court was by Franklin Roosevelt in 1937. But instead of simply requesting that Congress add an additional justice or two, Roosevelt’s convoluted scheme fooled no one and ultimately sank under its own weight.Roosevelt claimed the justices were too old to keep up with the workload, and urged that for every justice who reached the age of 70 and did not retire within six months, the president should be able to appoint a younger justice to help out. Six of the Supreme Court justices in 1937 were older than 70. But the court was not behind in its docket, and Roosevelt’s subterfuge was exposed. This is commonly know as "Court Stacking". It allows for those in power to control the court by changing the numbers to get the court to favor their views. So much for "blind justice" and honest decisions.  (Feb 15, 2016 | post #56425)

As far as the "Gun 'so-called' Town Hall"...one LIE that Barry Hussein touted was the 30,000 gun deaths per year. Here is the truth: Including suicides, Self Protection, and Justified officer shootings in Gun deaths/violence statistics, is intentionally deceptive or disingenuous at best. Including suicide by gun in gun deaths/violence is as silly as including suicides via carbon monoxide from running vehicles in a closed garages "vehicle deaths". Next time you are in a discussion on gun violence and someone uses that 30,000 "gun deaths" stat, ask them why -Suicide by drug overdoes isn't included in drug death statistics. -Suicide by running your car in a closed garage isn't included in vehicle death stats. -Suicide by hanging isn't recorded as a tree climbing accident. Why are gun accidents and suicides recorded as gun violence/death stats? Its simple. Intentional deception.  (Jan 8, 2016 | post #49291)

I watched Anderson Cooper's so-called "Town Hall" last night. You know, the so-called "town hall" where only those invited could attend...just how is that a "town hall"??? I was pleasantly surprised. Rather than being an opportunity to bash guns, Obama got an earful. It turns out that gun control isn't as clear cut as Obama thought it was. Each of the guests that support the Second Amendment made clear, concise, rational arguments against Obama's position. My favorite part was when Anderson Cooper called Obama on labeling 2nd amendment supporters as conspiracy theorists. Barack Hussein didn't appreciate that from Anderson Cooper, and berated him strongly on national TV. I think Anderson got an eye-full of what Barack is really about. His narcissism was on display.  (Jan 8, 2016 | post #49274)

Well, The Bolshevik has once again attempted to go around Congress - the people - in order to decree his ill conceived socialist wishes. This time it's attacking the people's 2nd Amendment RIGHTS. The second amendment does not have historical limitations of relevance. It does not authorize only the weapons of the 1700s. That's ludicrous, and potentially dangerous to the constitution as a whole. One could apply the same logic throughout the document to restrict our rights. Take the 1st amendment, does that only apply to mediums that existed at the time? Say books and oral speech? What about religions that didn't exist in the 1700s? Should those too not be afforded 1st amendment protections? Or how about the 4th amendment? Since email didn't exist in the 1700s, then search and seizure protection shouldn't be provided to your email? Is that the logic you want to apply to the 2nd amendment? To the rest of the constitution? Is that the road you wish to walk down?  (Jan 8, 2016 | post #49272)

The Founders believed in limited government in the form of a representative republic. They distrusted a direct democracy, because they equated it to mob rule. James Madison constantly preached against any system that allowed special interests (factions) to gain control of the government. He showed that throughout history, majority factions tyrannized minorities, whether the minorities be based on race, wealth, religion, or even geography. The Founders believed that to protect against government oppression, they must disperse power, and give each branch of government formidable checks on the authority of every other branch. By the end of the Constitutional Convention, the Founders also came to firmly believe that the states must act as a solid check on the national government. Last, monarchies had general power, so they would give the national government only delineated powers.  (Dec 12, 2013 | post #113937)

Rights come from God, not government This Founding Principle is actually embedded in our Declaration of Independence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” The Founders didn’t believe governments bestowed rights, nor were they an agent to protect rights—governments were the ones that abridged rights.  (Dec 12, 2013 | post #113936)

This type of thinking is a perfect example of just why people - typically left leaning - are so willing to subject themselves to government, something the founders explicitly warned against. Now, as far as rights, and where they come from...one underlying consideration is that for every such right there is a correlative, inseparable duty--for every aspect of freedom there is a corresponding responsibility. There is a duty, or responsibility, to God as the giver of these unalienable rights: a moral duty--to keep secure and use soundly these gifts, with due respect for the equal rights of others and for the right of Posterity to their just heritage of liberty. Since this moral duty cannot be surrendered, bartered, given away, abandoned, delegated or otherwise alienated, so is the inseparable right likewise unalienable. This concept of rights being unalienable is thus dependent upon belief in God as the giver. If, as SassySexySenior maintains, rights are given by men; just words made up by a bunch of dead men, then they can just as easily be taken away by other men. Rights were not given by men, they were bestowed by the Creator.  (Dec 11, 2013 | post #113678)
