Seraphic Secret has already expressed outrage at the special exemption for Congress and its staffers from ObamaCare. This exemption, we might add, also extends to the Justice Department, Federal Judges, the Supreme Court, and of course to Barack Hussein Obama and his immediate family.
Thus, the political class have passed a law which they will not have to obey.
This is how communist tyrannies and banana republics operate.
In ancient Rome, an engineer who built a bridge was, by law, required to sleep under that bridge. In this way, if the bridge collapsed, the builder suffered the consequences of his poor design. It is called consequences, taking responsibility for one’s actions.
But no such consequences exists for the American bureaucratic class.
The bureaucratic class, like the Bolshevik ruling class, never has to live with the consequences of its laws. The members of the political class who forced this inhuman, collectivist mandate down our throats are exempt from it.
As long as this outrage continues, we the American people will slip deeper and deeper into a state of torpor and become like sheep to slaughter.
Alexis de Tocqueville predicted such an outcome if America turned away from a constitutional republic and drifted towards Socialism.
His is a perfect description of ObamaCare.
“Society will develop a new kind of servitude which covers the surface of society with a network of complicated rules, through which the most original minds and the most energetic characters cannot penetrate. It does not tyrannise but it compresses, enervates, extinguishes, and stupefies a people, till each nation is reduced to nothing better than a flock of timid and industrious animals, of which the government is the shepherd.”
Seraphic Secret has repeatedly said that there are two inviolate laws of geopolitics.
1. Never invade Russia.
2. Obama is a liar.
As you can see Obama insisted that Obamacare is not a tax.
But middle class Americans have just been hit with one of the largest tax hikes in American history.
The Supreme Court recognizes Obama’s lie but maintains that the lie is a truth that must be enforced.
Obamacare is about 3,000 pages long. I doubt if more than three people have read the entire monstrosity. It will give birth to over two dozen federal agencies who will employ thousands of government bureaucrats—think the DMV—who will then make decisions about the health care of you and your loved lones. In short, the state now regulates your every breath.
This is how tyrannies are established.
