Obama / Democrat healthcare plan is unconstitutional

This health care issue is a hallucinated right that is not a right, and is wrong per the constitution of the United States of America (USA).

Them thar Demicrats (Democrats) and President Obama are not challenged constitutionally on this issue because of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt (FDR 32nd President, elected to four terms). During the 1930s FDR had the Supreme Court rule his New Deal legislation as constitutional by exploiting the interstate commerce clause article 1, section 8, clause 3, of the U.S. Constitution.

Some background of this clause: After the American Revolution the law of the land was the Articles of Confederation. Under these articles the newly formed nation consisted of 13 states and one weak central government. States printed their own money, and assessed tariffs on goods / products shipped between state lines. The states soon came to realize the Articles were weak and ineffective causing them to send 55 delegates to Philadelphia in 1787 to make the articles stronger. Instead the delegates scrapped the Articles and wrote the Constitution.

In this new document to address the issue of commerce between the states, Article 1, Section 8, clause 3 was inserted. Remember now this was done to effect the smooth transition of business between the states, nothing to do with healthcare in any form. These delegates after the constitution was ratified went on to hold positions in the newly formed government. Here is a list of the government positions they held:

15 Senators
10 members of the House of Representatives
6 Cabinet posts
4 governors
3 Supreme Court Justices
2 Presidents
1 Federal Judge

If health care was part of the Constitution, then how come when these men held the above positions not a one called for the Federal government involvement in healthcare? To understand a law, one examines the intent of the authors / legislators. In an attempt to explain the Constitution to the states some members of the convention authored The Federalist Papers. No where in The Federalist Papers can healthcare be located. These men engaged in volumes of correspondence and once again no mention of health care.

The government of these here United States has no business injecting itself into healthcare and by the intent, actions, and behavior of the Founders, such a step is unconstitutional.

Principle author of The Declaration of Independence and third president of the United States, Thomas Jefferson once said,

"When a government is afraid of its people there is freedom, when people are afraid of their government there is tyranny."

The determination through this administration and Democrats in Congress total disregard for the Constitution and successfully defeating capitalism, have given us the tyranny President Jefferson warned us about.

It was Vladimir Lenin who said,

"The goal of socialism is communism."
