Congressman: "Government can do most anything in this country"

US Congressman Pete Stark, representing the San Francisco Bay area's 13th District and chairman of the powerful Ways and Means Committee, was trying to defend Obamacare to a reporter at a town hall meeting. He was making the case that health care is a "right" in this country, just like life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. And yes, government could force people to have health insurance.

The questioning continued, asking how people can be forced to buy health care and other inconvenient questions related to Obama's new health care plan. Referencing the 13th Amendment, the reporter asked, "What constitutional limits are there on government?"

Congressman Stark's frustrated response?

"Federal government can do most anything in this country." I have
linked the short video.

Sheriff Paul Babeu, from Pinal County, Arizona, told the press yesterday:

"Our government has become our enemy."

Babeu told
CNS NEWS, "What's troubling is the fact that at a time when we in law enforcement and our state need help from the federal government, instead of sending help, they put up bill board size signs warning our citizens to stay out of the desert in my county because of dangerous drug and human smuggling and weapons and bandits and all these other things and then, behind all that, they drag us into court with the ACLU."

As you know, the federal government has taken legal action against the state of Arizona and a majority of its citizens.

Can the federal government do "most anything in this country?"

It seems as the federal government expands---exponentially, Congressman Stark's notion is becoming more and more of a reality. And too many lawmakers have come to believe it.

This past week we became aware of the Obama administration's considerations of how they might "back door" amnesty and defer enforcing immigration laws, while continuing the benefits to illegals. And I suspect offer them voter registration with their ill gotten driver's license as ID.

In what has become known as "the memo," an internal document, the administration was exploring ways to circumvent lawmakers and the enforcement of existing immigration laws through deferred enforcement and other slight of hand tricks.

It does not seem to matter that illegal immigration is not only helping to bankrupt the country, but is deeply dividing it and compromising our national security.

While Rome burns, Nero fiddles with his classroom, far left, socialistic ideology. One intended to "remake" America---the greatest nation in the history of the world, into an "also ran" European type socialistic state.

A plan:

Resist: People of faith and conservatives must resist the relentless attempt to "remake America."

Reclaim: The upcoming election is a first step in reclaiming a government that is by and for the people.

Repeal: As of yesterday 59% of America favor repealing Obamacare. If we can elect enough new lawmakers who will support and uphold conservative, Judeo-Christian fiscal and social values and principles, much of the damage to our country can still be repealed.

Restore: With values oriented lawmakers, we can begin the process of re-enacting laws and policy that will return America to her foundations and her greatness.

Rejoice: "When the righteous rule, the people rejoice; when the wicked rule, the people groan." ---Supreme Court Justice William Patterson, reminding his fellow justices of Proverbs 29:2. United States Oracle (Portsmouth, May 24, 1800)

Resist. Reclaim. Repeal. Restore. Rejoice.
