Thomas Jefferson

"We must make our choice between economy and liberty or confusion and servitude...If we run into such debts, we must be taxed in our meat and drink, in our necessities and comforts, in our labor and in our amusements...if we can prevent the government from wasting the labor of the people, under the pretense of caring for them, they will be happy."--Thomas Jefferson

"America does not go abroad in search of monsters to destroy. She is the well-wisher to freedom and independence of all. She is the champion and vindicator only of her own. "
--John Quincy Adams
US diplomat & politician (1767 - 1848)

“Since the general civilization of mankind, I believe there are more instances of the abridgment of the freedom of the people by gradual and silent encroachments of those in power than by violent and sudden usurpation”
-James Madison at the Virginia Ratification Debates
"With respect to the words "general welfare," I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators."

- James Madison's Letter to James Robertson, April 20, 1831

ObamaCare: Pay Up or Go Directly to Jail!

For all you liberals who believe that Obamacare is benevolent and fair:


"September 25, 2009Categories:
Senate Ensign receives handwritten confirmation
This doesn't happen often enough.
Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) received a handwritten note Thursday from Joint Committee on Taxation Chief of Staff Tom Barthold confirming the penalty for failing to pay the up to $1,900 fee for not buying health insurance.
Violators could be charged with a misdemeanor and could face up to a year in jail or a $25,000 penalty, Barthold wrote on JCT letterhead. He signed it "Sincerely, Thomas A. Barthold."
The note was a follow-up to Ensign's questioning at the markup."

And this is exactly how illegal immigrants WILL be covered under Obamacare. The left, are predictably, now openly pushing to expressively cover illegals in healthcare. But even if they don't succeed at this open attempt, as previously mentioned there will be NO explicit ban on illegals collecting healthcare benefits and so therefore they WILL get covered as there will be no enforcement of the rules. And if you don't want to pay for it, YOU will go to jail--yes you, the racist, xenophobic American with this crazy idea that you should not have to pay ANYTHING to someone who has flagrantly broke our sovereignty and laws by coming here illegally.

All incentives for employers to hire illegals need to be eliminated and a true enforcement and verification system in place. And in the meantime, ALL illeglas should be denied ANY publicly funded services and ultimately be shown the exit door of our country.

If one legal American citizen is denied a service, an opportunity, prosperity, or God forbid their life as a result of giving away freebies (healthcare or whatever) to illegals, then it is a travesty of monumental proportions and should never be tolerated by Americans-- that in overwhelming numbers are against illegals getting anything at taxpayer expense.
