We’ve all heard that the truth shall set you free, right? If Americans know the truth about how much authority the US Congress really has we will be set free from being bullied by the Congress and the government in general.
The simple truth is that the democrats in Congress under Mr Obama have over used their authority and continue to do so.
The Authority Of Congress
The truth about the Congress, The President and the Judicial Branch is that they have limited authority.
The three branches of government (and that includes the Congress) are limited to those powers that the US Constitution grants them, this is called enumerated powers. Neither the President, the Congress nor the courts can self-appoint authority; they are limited to that authority explicitly stated in the Constitution.
What Mr Obama and his democrat dupes in Congress have been doing is inventing their own list of powers and authority for power and control. This self-appointed power gives them the authority to pass laws that benefit them and destroy us by eliminating our freedom.
Due to ignorance of the language within the Constitution, the American people have been letting Mr Obama and the Congress run wild with self-appointed authority. But this free-ride is over because Americans aren’t taking it any more.
The Commerce Clause
Thanks to the passage of the Obama Health Care bill, Americans have become more inquisitive, more educated and much more knowledgeable about the US Constitution and the powers it grants to those within the federal government.
The Commerce Clause (Article I, Section 8, Clause 3) states that the US Congress shall have the power to “regulate commerce with foreign nations, and among the several states and with the Indian tribes.” Those sixteen words have affected and continue to affect the lives of every single American throughout the history of America.
It is this Commerce Clause which Mr Obama and the democrats in Congress invoked to justify and defend their authoritative powers in passing the Obama Health Care law, against the will of the American people.
Stopping The Self-Appointed Authority of Congress
Politicians have never pushed the over use of their authority by invoking the Commerce Clause as much as the Obama Administration has; and Americans have not fought back so hard on an issue in a long, long time.
The Commerce Clause does not grant the federal government the authority to make it a law that every single, free American buy a product…namely health insurance. Allowing the federal government to force individuals in a free America to buy health insurance is unconstitutional under the Commerce Clause within the US Constitution.
Americans need to keep the pressure on the new Congress to repeal Obama Health Care. The repeal of Obamacare is the only way to maintain your individual freedom; never forget that.
