Obamacare violates 13th and 14th Amendments


First, there are some people attempting to portray kindhearted freedom loving Americans as racists. They are doing that to try and instill fear in us to speak out. They will try to pick apart everything we say to try and portray us as racists. When they don’t find what they are looking for, they will manufacture it. It is important that A. we don’t give them material that is racist in nature and B. we don’t allow fear of these groups to prevent us from speaking out. If we do either, they win.

I am not mincing words here but let me be clear that I am laying out just one more way that the recently passed healthcare bill is a danger to our Constitutional freedom. How much do you know about the part of the Constitution aptly known as the 13th Amendment? That Amendment was one of the most sweeping legislative works in American history. The 13th Amendment ended legal slavery in the former Confederate States of America.

Let me present this scenario: Lets say that as a prominent national politician I proudly announce that I am going to support repealing the 13th amendment and legalizing slavery again, but this time slavery would not be restricted to people of a certain skin color or nationality. Would the American people accept such actions? How would the media react? I bet many of you have never read the 13th Amendment or the 14th Amendment that strengthened the 13th. Since this is such a major part of American History check it out really quickly. This is the basic version so it won’t be so time consuming.

Amendment XIII.**

Section 1. Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.

Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.

Amendment XIV.***

Section 1. All persons born or naturalized in the United States and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside. No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.

*Superseded by section 3 of the Twentieth Amendment.

** The Thirteenth Amendment was ratified December 6, 1865.

*** The Fourteenth Amendment was ratified July 9, 1868.

So, fast forward to 2010. Have you noticed a conflict between these Constitutional Amendments and the stellar redesign of our Healthcare system by Obama, Pelosi and Reid?

Neither slavery, nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment of a crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction. But, now if I don’t buy health insurance, the IRS can fine and imprison me without even due process as the IRS does not answer to any branch of our government. So, my Constitutional right to decide for myself what kind or how much insurance I want or need has been usurped. So has yours. What happened to equal protection under the law? Obama will not be bound by this legislation. Neither will press secretary Gibbs or Nancy Pelosi. So now you and you and me too are not equal citizens of the USA anymore. We now have a “tiered” citizenship where laws no longer even on paper apply to everyone equally. This is a huge step towards possible slavery for all, regardless of . You and I no longer have say so over what we do or even what we buy. Given the fact that they are stripping our citizenship away, how long do you think your right to vote will last? Think about it: those now in power know they will be slaughtered in the next election. Look at the potential danger here. There is every possibility that in the 20,000 pages of legislation passed since TARP, language could have been slipped into¬†each of these laws that when added together could turn this country into a dictatorship with an executive order from President? It is a simple fact that the President is surrounded by people who have stated a desire to do exactly that. That is the method that the USSR used to destroy the U.N. from within. Adolph Hitler pulled a similar power grab in the Weimar Republic by first gradually stripping rights, then burning the government building (the Reichstag) then removing the Prime Minister and declaring himself dictator and ending elections which “fundamentally transformed” the Weimar Republic to the 3rd Reich. To make clear, I am not in any way calling Obama a Nazi, or Hitler, but am pointing out that the methods being used today to “fundamentally transform America” are very similar to those used to bring representative governments full circle to dictatorships in the past.

    There is no law in the United States that can compel a person to specific performance. Specific performance can only be compelled by contract.

  2. Sam says:

    This has to be the most absurd bs I’ve eve read. For starters, neither congress nor the president are exempt from the law. Even if they somehow were, the federal government isn’t and even if the government was, the government provides health insurance to both congress and the president so that argument is not applicable. Also, the idea that the ACA is slavery or servitude is patently absurd. Current corporate wage practices are currently infinitely closer to servitude or slavery that anything in the ACA.
