Five for Fighting’s John Ondrasik decided to go for a little run in our nation’s capital this morning. In a series of tweets posted this afternoon, he describes what happened:

Forget about civil disobedience inside the “Barry-cades.” According to Ondrasik’s account, civil obedience is also frowned upon.

  • Jp Myers


    • snowleopard (the true one)

      Good thing he got pictures as well. This is soon to turn ugly for someone and blood will be shed on a massive scale, courtesy of Obama’s orders.

      • Cleatus Van Damne ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

        Jon Ondrasik paid a very nice tribute to these great Americans. I particularly like the quote from Harry S. Truman at the end:

      • Graham Shaw

        I doubt that. The left for all its faults is far more willing to be arrested for their causes. (Likely because it generally results in a slap on the wrist) our side respects the law even when its clearly wrong. I never thought I”d say this but I’ve been saying it more and more: it’s time for open defiance.

        We need to force Obama’s hand, make him arrest people for trying to view monuments. Make him put people in jail so he can protect his precious reform law. Expose him for the narcasisitic tyrant he is.

        • Steve in Katy

          Wait until nobody is paying the obamacare fines! Civil Disobedience will have a new meaning.

          • Sam

            That’s why ‘refunds’ exist. And garnishments.

          • Graham Shaw

            Indeed the feds can and will squash you like a bug. The only hope is to make a big enough public spectacle to rally support and force change. With the media in the back pocket of Obama and co. (really he should just end the charade and put them all on the payroll) civil disobedience is not going to be easy but it must be done.

          • Hit Manfan

            You don’t have a choice. The IRS has already said they will take the fines directly from your bank account.

          • Carl Dale Sallee

            Stop using banks!

    • Cleatus Van Damne ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ

      The world may never again see men like these brave and honorable WWII veterans. The cowardly manner in which the 0bama regime has callously disrespected them is reprehensible.

    • iron_condor

      Expect a visit from the IRS soon, Mr. Ondrasik.

      • hillplus

        Bend over and grab your ankles….. this is REALLY going to hurt!

  • Steven S Mellnick

    Thank you for taking the photos, and twitchy for posting. Food for thought: In jails and prisons, they push them along as well. Chilling to say the least.

    • pi2r2

      I imagine that there was pushing into the showers of Auschwitz, too.

      • Steven S Mellnick

        Yes, there was actually. Along with the “I was just following orders” defense these spine-less jackboot LEOs ‘just doing my job’ arsehats.

        • Noovuss

          They have much to fear, time is running out.

          • snowleopard (the true one)

            And the more desperate the left becomes, they become capable of anything.

          • Noovuss

            You are correct.
            I hold no false illusions about communists, their fascist tools and how blood thirsty they are.

          • Adam Weisshaupt

            The Left always ends up attempting to mass murder their fellow citizens. Always. Pol Pot. Mao. Stalin. Always.

        • hutch1200

          Half of the LEOs would do the job for free. Just to have that badge and power.
          The other 1/2 I have immense respect for.

          • Steven S Mellnick

            As someone who had a criminal mind set, the only thing that differentiated myself from a police office was a badge. I have much respect for law enforcement. Those that truly enforce the spirit of justice as opposed to those fully corrupt or the straight “black and white” viewpoints.

        • Darryl OBrien

          Obama is building his own personal army it is called Home Land Security They do not pledge to up hold the Constitution
          You might know them as :The SS Guard to Mine Fuhrer Obama

  • tony30088

    I fear a million man march on DC during this regime would end strikingly similar to Assad’s Syria.

    • Marvin Nelson

      How about a “Million Patriot” March?

      • tony30088

        I was trying to make a subtle reference to the governments response to the MLK march in the ’60s and how that would be responded to today.

        • frozenglass

          The vets are organizing a march on DC in October. Just saw this so I don’t have the link.

          • tony30088

            They sure are. Oct 13 just following the Oct 11-13 trucker rally in DC. It’s all over twitter.

    • Discochip

      Guess we’ll find out next week when 100,000 Teamsters roll into DC!

      • IBXNJ

        I wish It was the Teamsters!! Just independent truckers. The Teamsters USED to endorse Republicans ( Nixon in68, 72 and Reagan in 80)

    • falling321

      Then we need to send two million and if they are turned away, we need to send five million and so on until the get the idea! We are fed up and we aren’t going to that this man child’s temper tantrums any more!

      • tony30088

        I heard the folks in Egypt had from 20 to 30 million to get rid of Morsi and they have a population of 88 million or so. We should be able to get at least 30 million.

  • peteee363

    I wonder if he asked the park service guy if he liked doing Obama’s bidding? and if didn’t feel a little ashamed at what they are doing to our ww2 vets?

    • octagon999

      I think if you’re physically pushing a guy, you’re not embarrassed.

      • Mead

        I think he’s got a case for assault.

            I hope you don’t get water in your nose as we swirl down the toilet bowl.

    • Darryl OBrien

      That officer was doing it because he enjoyed showing this no body that he was a bad ass and you are Obama`s sheep to the slaughter
      The same mind set as Obama Thinking they do not have to follow the law of the land There better then that SS squads coming to a town near YOU

      • JeffDeWitt

        His badge shouldn’t have been covered up by the silly heart, all America should know who this guy is.

        • Fatwa Arbuckle

          My sentiments precisely; the King’s Men ought not have their identities protected in public spaces. Especially when they’re demonstrably behaving like goons.

          and trust me obama has PLENTY to pick from in mosques and prisons around the country. don’t think he wouldn’t use jihadists and criminals.

        Professor Einstein is also reputed to have said, “I observe, that only two things are unbounded– the universe, and human stupidity. And I’m really not all that convinced about the universe.”

    • gman213

      OMG, as a retired LEO I can tell you, this generation has been so screwed up with our liberal education system, a bunch of them will violate their oath and round up law abiding citizens at gunpoint. At that point…they become targets!

      • QWYS (Hydralisk of the Swarm)

        Well, they will try at least.

        I am afraid this isn’t going to end well.

        • Adam Weisshaupt

          Hope and Change! Through Blood. Its the Leftist way.
          When Obama said he would “transform” and “unify” America, this is what he meant : I will persecute and kill all dissenters.

    • rabidfox2

      There may be an unsupported assumption in that question.

    • Noovuss

      It all depends on the union contract and losing ones retirement.

    • TugboatPhil ✓Mate

      We already know from 20 years ago that the FBI will shoot you or your dog in the back and put a bullet into your wife’s head, even while she’s holding a baby. And if you have a “nutty” religion they’ll not wait for you to come into town to serve a warrant, they’ll send an ambush team to assault your church, with women and children inside and if you don’t come out after a couple of months, they’ll just smash down the walls with a tank and fire bomb you.

      Government health care is going to be great.

      • Thomas Swartz

        People talk about well if they cross a line I will stand up. Burning a church with women and children inside wasn’t that line. Where will the line be?

        • Adam Weisshaupt

          When they try to disarm us. Just like in Concord. The Colonists had soldiers living in their homes at that point.
          The real question is how many thugs do they have willing to do it – willing to risk leaving widows and children so he can violate the rights of people who would hurt no one if left alone. If you can take down one member of the gun stealing SWAT, will they have the resources to replace him? I for one would rather die killing one of these thugs than live on with them in charge.

      • Darryl OBrien

        Sad but this happens more often then is reported
        They do a lot behind the scenes you will never see
        It will take the courage of the majority of us to vote them out
        The ones who really need to go are the carrier politicians
        Nancy,Harry Reid,Obama,McCain ETC
        We have to unite as one and clean house
        No more long term congressmen or Senators

    • Darryl OBrien

      This is why the Constitution was put in place
      The same Constitution Obama has been trying to tear down so Obama and his SS Squads will be able to rule as he wants
      Democrat Harry Reid there leader stood before us on national TV and said Why should I agree to fund the cancer treatment for the kids when people have to stay home By the way they will be paid for sitting at home but the kids dying of cancer wont
      This is not the Marxist people I want running my Government
      Are they the people You Want ???????????

    • Fatwa Arbuckle

      Only if it interfered with their pensions and benefits.

  • no_more_deceit

    Somebody should put an obama sticker on all the signs where they say “due to a Federal Shutdown”

    • Discochip

      It’s Obama’s and Harry Reid’s shutdown, no doubt about it. And just heard on the news today that the House caved in and ALL 800,000 Federal workers will be receiving their normal paychecks, even the ones who are sitting at home doing nothing, instead of sitting at work and watching porn on their computers as they were caught doing once this regime moved into town.

      Yakov Smirnoff

    • David

      Yackov Smirnoff as I recall – a comedian circa 80s. He came to America from the old U.S.S.R. I don’t know if he is still alive, but he loved America and he was very funny.

      • IBXNJ

        Yakov is still around…He works in Branson Mo.

      • Keith

        Last I heard is that he does his stand up in Branson, MO.

        • ShaneB

          Yakov Smirnoff was just out here in Southern California doing his stand up routine – he does a routine for couples about relationships (after he got his masters in psychology!). He was just on Dennis Prager two weeks ago on Wednesday. He was hilarious!

      • Funeral guy

        He is still alive. Dennis Prager has him on from time to time. Still pretty funny.

  • marion vega

      Last I checked, the president (notice no caps), first, isn’t a leader and, second, has earned NO respect. Tell your pres to have some respect for this country and those who have died for it

    • Hiraghm

      Nope, no one is disrespecting anything. Because disrespect isn’t an action verb.

      • VerminMcCann
        • Hiraghm

          No, it hasn’t, not in America. It only began being used in recent decades as an action verb since illiterate gutter trash in their lazy ignorance made it popular.

          • VerminMcCann

            Sorry, you’re wrong. Abbott’s Webster’s Dictionary, which was published in 1934 in Wisconsin, defines disrespect as “to show disrespect to.” It’s just one of those uses that pseudo-intellectual prescriptivists insist are improper despite their usefulness and conformity with the precepts of English.

    • Darryl OBrien

      Obama does not like America he thinks we should all be broke and poor
      why else has he done every thing in his power to tear this country apart

  • David

    The sound of jackboots echoed as I walked. Three black-shirted agents of the government came up behind me. Sewn on the sleeves on their jackets were inverted “V” stripes and on the left breast side of those jackets hung what appeared to be some conglomeration of medals and ribbons. One, who appeared to be in command said in a threatening tone, “Your Papers Please.”

    • Steven S Mellnick

      …..exactly. And I almost feel sorry for those agents. “Fly Over Country” is what is going to save America. Back to the basics. God, Family, Community.

            Our State Troopers are the finest along with our Texas Rangers They up hold the law and do not abuse it
            ATF and the Feds or a different story
            There is so much corruption in there ranks its beyond belief
            They are responsible for the deaths of our 2 border guards
            They did the bidding of our Coward in chief and gave thousands of Military Grade weapons to drug Lords
            That could be considered a act of War by Mexico
            The US running illegal weapons across a foreign country`s border

      • sickandtired

        the idiots give you a bad name, but I will beg to differ that there are only a few – maybe where you’re at, but not everywhere. my prayer is that WHEN the sh*t hits the fan, the ones like you outnumber the idiots, and will stand for what is right, even if your are violating orders from higher up the ranks….all the way to the WH, Liar in Chief

      • anjullyn

        And I meant the bad ones. I appreciate LE, but I have to say that there would be no way I would stop average citizens from visiting the very memorials they are taxed to build and maintain, and parks, and yes, I even read that the feds shut down parts of the ocean. Yes, the ocean. Until government funding is restored, the fishing boats are prohibited from taking anglers into 1,100 square-miles of open ocean. From Breitbart. So it does scare me to think that all those people are denying tax paying citizens access to things that belong to us. What else would they do while just following orders?

        • b_truit

          state laws and the constitution are very clear. thats how we go about our business. Shutting out the very people who pay for that park to be open? HA Id let yall walk right on in. In fact Id open the gate and take your picture for you. If there was a crime scene or active situation? sure poeple have to stay out but in this situation? thats what God gave me a brain for. I obey the constitution, not some persons agenda.

        • Darryl OBrien

          Obama has gone far out side the Law and has become a Dictator and it is time to shut him down by voting out his party in 2014 This is the acts of a coward that is loosing his power

      • Darryl OBrien

        I have a lot of respect for the police officers who up hold the law

    • svar42

      The problem with these ‘Park Rangers’ and Capital Police is often caused by fear of loosing their pensions (which I don’t see happening – when was the last time you heard of a Federal gvmt employee getting fired?) or getting transferred to some “hole” in the the middle of the Great Plains (I’ll go! I’ll go!). If their behavior keeps up, we’re liable to start seeing organized civil disobedience at OUR memorials and monuments.

      • Darryl OBrien

        I fear that time is coming and soon
        Every one i talk to is very angry at what the government is doing to them not for them It is wide spread that people no longer believe in or trust the government and fear them now
        There voice is no longer heard They want change and now

    • G-Man Nicholl

      That was the excuse given time and time again at the Nuremberg Trials following WWII: ‘We were only following orders.” Somehow they still believed that their sadistic cruelty and crimes against humanity were exculpated by their blind obedience. Because they carried out their tasks without question and often with great efficiency, they saw themselves as good soldiers. Sadly, we are beginning to see this type of thought beginning to take hold in America.

    • Libertarian Advocate

    I am sorry for laughing, but I lived in the DC area back in the late 60’s – early 70’s and made the stupid mistake of asking a capitol police officer directions ( I was lost ) and it was about 8 pm. For my saying excuse me I got a tirade of obscenities and a threat to be arrest unless I was out of his sight in the next 10 seconds. Thanks for the memories ………

    • Scorpion

      It’s added to Obamakov’s ACA premiums.

    • ToyZebra

      People need to start making those signs disappear. A pair of wire cutters, thirty seconds and poof they are gone.

  • puhiawa

    Obama and his pigs. Parasites all. Think about the mindset that views middle america as a criminal conspiracy as Obama and the Feds do. Fire them all.

  • grais

    The water is shut off??
    THE WATER IS SHUT OFF ?!!??!???!!!?!?!?!?!?
    Obama, you fucking petty tyrant-wannabe, GROW THE FUCK!! UP!!

    excuse me, please. I just had to get that out.

    • JR48

      Honey, they took the pump handles off of water stations along 184 miles of coastline biking trail so that people couldn’t get water. How many park rangers does it take to do something like that?

      Mind blowing.

      • grais

        Nevermind “How many” ‘What kind of’ is the question I’d like answered.
        Where did this happen?

      • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

        You can’t use the pumps, ’cause Obama took the handles… #BobDylan #SubterranianHomesickBlues #MusicTriviaTime Jawamax 8<{D}

    The uniformed thugs were in a no win position? Let me get out the violins. How many more times are they going to side with tyranny and the temper tantrum king in the WH? Do they value their jobs so much that they will shove the public? At what point do they refuse to go along?

    • Jeff Coil

      Don’t let the actions of one corrupt bully reflect on the others who have stood aside and refused to “enforce” this stupidity.

      • rambler

        Exactly where are those who refused? Seems to me that it takes more than one to put all the barry-cades.

  • JackFlash

    God bless our brave defenders. Including John!…

  • Kickinmg

    Do what the Bikers did to the PETA group that joined the picnic. The Bikers duct taped them to trees and tossed some of them into fast food dumpsters

  • CalMum

    … imagine – all this nastiness brought to us by our current admin. Where is the leadership? Where is the class?

  • John William Thompson

    it is OBama’s fault, he is a POS that should be arrested and put in jail

  • Joseph Pickett

    so glad I moved to TX and far from the Xhithole on the Potomac.

  • PatrickHenry

    Message to the park police – you have lost all credibility and respect from America.

    I hope that back massage obama promised you is enough.

    • Jeff Coil

      Most of the Park Police have been standing aside. They put the barriers up because they have to, but this is the first one I heard of that actually “enforced” the shutdown.

  • mitchellvii

    You want to know what a world run by Liberals is like? There ya go.

  • Sylvia Sparks Simpson

    In my lifetime I have seen nothing like what the Obama regime is inflicting on all Americans, and I mean ALL Americans. They have no heart or soul, what happens from people with no moral compass. We will forget most of what caused this absurd petulance but I dare say the picture that will not fade will be that of vets turned away from all their monuments. I can think of no other president who would have been so ruthless. If the media did their jobs like those of yesteryear this would be the real story.

  • usaok59

    It was refreshing to read yesterday that one “guard” when asked if the people could enter the park, said, “Well, I won’t wrestle you to the ground.” Not all of them are peanut-brained jerks.

  • FlatFoot


  • Scorpion

    Our low information disseminating media, having years ago reinforced their stupidity creds, are continuing to blame Republicans for closing open air venues with a shutdown. Ironic, because their are now more cops than you would normally see on any other given day.

    • Grimest Reaper

      I am not sure even how much control the Republicans have on this. I believe the Republicans are trying to do their job the way it was designed, but they have been bypassed and are not even in the loop as to what is really going on.

  • kidd

    I have to say, the fact that there is an “official” sign about the closure is a bit dubious. I worked for the State Park system, have worked in other government areas, and NEVER did anything get done that fast. The invoice for those signs would still be on a desk, waiting for 3 bids for size, color, and cost. Something stinks……

    • Libertarian Advocate

      Ya think?????

  • NealK

    Chuck Todd will claim it’s all a stunt, as he did on Thursday. All politicians and media should be put on a barge and shoved out to sea.

    • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III

        Disturbingly, that song was the first to come out of my car’s cd player the night of 9/11/01 when I started it and drove away to try and find a place to clear my head. Still one of my favorites. Stayed in my head the whole next week.

    • Grimest Reaper

      That would be easy, but the problem is more deep rooted than that.

  • Larry Rappaport


  • Jeff Callahan

    If you still support this Tyrant I believe you should consider suicide..

  • Jack Reacher

    Don’t let a cop push you ……………….hold your ground. Video tape it and tell him to stop assaulting you ………………tell him if he keeps assaulting you that you will be forced to defend yourself. Then knock his ass out , cuff him and run

  • John Thomas “Jack” Ward III


  • Darryl OBrien

    The sad thing is this officer should be charged with assault he did not have the right to push him as he was walking away
    This another strong arm tactic from the Democrat Socialist Marxist Movement
    Rule by force demand not ask do as I say or else Democrat rulers have to go before this Country becomes a Comunist run country

  • Grimest Reaper

    You people never seemed to realize O’banana never forgot their sacrifices. He never cared anything about them. All this is a distraction for the Big Surprise that is coming. He is good at getting our attention and distracting us from what is really important. Keep your eyes open and your ears pealed. It is coming. And you think you hate things now, it gets worse.

  • Grimest Reaper

    When it comes down to a Rent-A-Cop with crap-toos on his forearm spreading O’banana’s message you should get the idea of how much we have lost, before the fight has even started.

  • Grimest Reaper

    That is what he wants.

  • Raymond Cism

    Obama will issue troops to “guard” these parks. Mark my words. #MartialLaw

    • Michael B

      Illegal under Posse Comitatus Act of 1870.

      Never mind that US troops would tend to find subtle ways to refuse illegal orders against the public.

  • radical1979

    Why does Obama circumvent the Constitution, It’s quicker this way.

  • falling321

    SIgns that demand Obama’s resignation might be a better choice! LOL Pitchforks are most likely illegal around the WH and melted tar and feathers is just messy!

    • Sam

      Impeachment & removal would be better. Problem: need a Congress with guts.

  • allyall

    When we were in DC we visited the Jefferson Memorial at 11:30 at night and stayed for about an hour. About 10 or so other folks visited while we were there. President Stompy Foot barry-cades air. This is just nuts.

  • conservativemama

    Jefferson would certainly know who Obama is.

  • Terry_Jim

    I wonder what that psalmist of socialism,
    Woody Guthrie would have said
    “As I went walking I saw a sign there
    And on the sign it said “No Trespassing.”
    But on the other side it didn’t say nothing,
    That side was made for you and me.”

  • Linda Mitchell

    I just wonder how anyone can defend his actions right now? How does one respect this? Blame whoever you choose for the shutdown, but there is only one person responsible for this.

  • Stapinion

    Bravo. For 1st time in my life I am looking at police officers as assholes.

    • BenInNY

      Not my first, but we had a series of real local winners in my area who at this point are the exception, thankfully.

  • Porphyry

    Then perhaps some *un*-civil disobedience is called for!

  • Jack Mahoghof

    What an a@@hole that USPP cop was!!!!

  • $22639970

    The cop is a fuck.

  • Dandapani

    Is there any doubt that Oblamo’s Civilian Army (the police) will take his orders and obey against the people they have sworn to serve and protect? Taken to the illogical (irrational?) extreme. THIS. WON’T. END. WELL!

    That cop at the Jefferson Memorial needs to lay off the donuts and hit the gym

    I would have shown the cop’s picture and badge.

    Until we start making the bureaucrats pay a personal price for messing with us, they’ll continue to do it. If you aren’t willing to die for the things you hold dear, they will be taken from you.

    Be a shame if somebody with a sharpie were to write STILL FOUND THE MONEY TO PRINT THESE SIGNS on those signs.

  • cargosquid

    On any placard that closes a park, monument, or whatever…add these words.


  • Hit Manfan

    So, if there is someone there to keep you out then why can’t they just let people in? Especially for open air exhibits. It costs nothing extra. Write the news papers and stations.

    • Suzyqpie

      Logic is so yesterday.

  • Hit Manfan

    Oh, and do we have enough Government yet?

    • Suzyqpie

      I’m thinking you might garner an allegation of racism for the simple implication that govt is to big. You didn’t fool me, saw right through you. Ya better watch it there, Buster, you’re skating on thin ice. Next thing you mention the USPS and you’ve had it, Mr Hit Man.

  • bittman

    Every American inconvenienced by the Obama Administration’s effort to make the shutdown as inconvenient and as harmful as possible to Americans needs to be posting similar photograhs and videos. This government is run by Chicago thugs who want to show us that the government has ALL OF THE POWER and We the People have NO POWER.

    Casus belli.

      I’m guessing that the badge number is 666.

    obama would rather we forget… he’d like to make us all forget we WERE once free. obamacare annihilates the US Constitution… but of course the people who voted for it could NOT know that because they NEVER friggin read it! it violates our right to privacy, our right to due process, and so much more…

    The Truth About the Health Care Bills
    – Michael Connelly, Ret. Constitutional Attorney

    Well, I have done it! I have read the entire text of proposed House Bill 3200:
    The Affordable Health Care Choices Act of 2009.
    I studied it with particular emphasis from my area of expertise, constitutional law. I was frankly concerned that parts of the proposed law that were being discussed might be unconstitutional. What I found was far worse than what I had heard or expected.

    To begin with, much of what has been said about the law and its implications is in fact true, despite what the Democrats and the media are saying. The law does provide for rationing of health care, particularly where senior citizens and other classes of citizens are involved, free health care for illegal immigrants, free abortion services, and probably forced participation in abortions by members of the medical profession.

    The Bill will also eventually force private insurance companies out of business, and put everyone into a government run system. All decisions about personal health care will ultimately be made by federal bureaucrats, and most of them will not be health care professionals. Hospital admissions, payments to physicians, and allocations of necessary medical devices will be strictly controlled by the government.

    However, as scary as all of that is, it just scratches the surface. In fact, I have concluded that this legislation really has no intention of providing affordable health care choices. Instead it is a convenient cover for the most massive transfer of power to the Executive Branch of government that has ever occurred, or even been contemplated. If this law or a similar one is adopted, major portions of the Constitution of the United States will effectively have been destroyed.

    The first thing to go will be the masterfully crafted balance of power between the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of the U.S. Government. The Congress will be transferring to the Obama Administration authority in a number of different areas over the lives of the American people, and the businesses they own.

    The irony is that the Congress doesn’t have any authority to legislate in most of those areas to begin with! I defy anyone to read the text of the U.S. Constitution and find any authority granted to the members of Congress to regulate health care.

    This legislation also provides for access, by the appointees of the Obama administration, in direct violation of the specific provisions of the 4th Amendment to the Constitution, of all of your personal healthcare information, your personal financial information, and the information of your employer, physician, and hospital. All of this is a protecting against unreasonable searches and seizures. You can also forget about the right to privacy. That will have been legislated into oblivion regardless of what the 3rd and 4th Amendments may provide.

    If you decide not to have healthcare insurance, or if you have private insurance that is not deemed acceptable to the Health Choices Administrator appointed by Obama, there will be a tax imposed on you. It is called a tax instead of a fine because of the intent to avoid application of the due process clause of the 5th Amendment. However , that doesn’t work because since there is nothing in the law that allows you to contest or appeal the imposition of the tax, it is definitely depriving someone of property without the due process of law.

    So, there are three of those pesky amendments that the far left hate so much, out the original ten in the Bill of Rights, that are effectively nullified by this law. It doesn’t stop there though.

    The 9th Amendment that provides: The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people;

    The 10th Amendment states: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are preserved to the States respectively, or to the people. Under the provisions of this piece of Congressional handiwork neither the people nor the states are going to have any rights or powers at all in many areas that once were theirs to control.

    I could write many more pages about this legislation, but I think you get the idea. This is not about health care; it is about seizing power and limiting rights. Article 6 of the Constitution requires the members of both houses of Congress to “be bound by oath or affirmation to support the Constitution.” If I was a member of Congress I would not be able to vote for this legislation or anything like it, without feeling I was violating that sacred oath or affirmation. If I voted for it anyway, I would hope the American people would hold me accountable.

    For those who might doubt the nature of this threat, I suggest they consult the source, the US Constitution, and Bill of Rights. There you can see exactly what we are about to have taken from us.
