Where will the progressives go next – tax free speech with a blog or a youtube tax or will they lay a gun/ammunition tax to control the right to bear arms?
Where will this now unlimited ability for the federal government to tax its citizens as a behavior modification tool end? If you wish to control free speech, tax certain types of blogs or youtube submissions and views.
Chief Justice John Roberts may not yet fully understand the full extent of the demise of this free Republic he has unleashed, with this unchecked ability for the progressives to tax, not to raise revenue, but to make behavior modification and pick and choose who is modified.
Can we now have an Article V Constitutional Convention by the states to take back the progressives 100 year assault on this Republic?

Twist and turns from an unpredictable Chief Justice of the supreme Court of the land – what does it mean? While the health care mandate is struct down as unconstitutional under the commerce clause, it is Phoenix rising from the ashes as a tax, under the authority of Congress to lay and collect taxes.
What does this mean? Simple, the Affordable Health Care Act survives mostly intact, with medicaid in jeopardy. States cannot be punished for not expanding medicaid. The real meaning of the Affordable Care Act decision is that the democrats in Congress and President Obama insisted, promised, that this new Act is not a tax, but when they went to court they argued that it was a tax – gross misrepresentation, again from this administration!
Since the President was adamant that this mandate was not a tax, repeatedly over time and in all forums, then argued in federal court and in the supreme Court that the mandate was justifed as a tax, will he pay the price for this massive deception? Did he win a battle and perhaps lose the war? The majority of americans are opposed to the mandate, and it appears that they are not opposed because it is a violation of the commerce clause, and that it really was a tax. Americans just don’t want to be mandated by our federal government to do anything and don’t care by what means this was accomplished.
Has Chief Justice Roberts, as the swing jurist in this decision, created a mine field for President Obama? Does the president have to explain his supreme misrepresentation to the american people? In addition, the hidden decision here is that the federal government has been reined in under the commerce clause, limiting its commerce clause power, but unleashed as a taxing giant to use taxes to control the behavior of the citizens of this nation?
I am sure the founders never dreamed of a free nation under the thumb of the central government created by its states to make the states, as a whole, stronger, but with “limited” powers. It appears that the federal government under the right to lay and collect taxes to influence the behavior of its citizens is now unchecked with unlimited powers – thank you, President Obama for the deception!
