Obamacare Mandate Stands: We are now subjects of the federal government

Chief Justice Roberts joins the 4 liberal members of the court and rules the Obamacare mandate to purchase insurance can stay, but is is really a tax, not a penalty. The rest of the law was upheld with some minor objections to the state medicaid provision. We are no longer citizens of this once great country. We are now it's subjects. If the federal government can force you to buy a private product, they can do anything. Our Constitution is now a worthless historical artifact in a museum. We have been betrayed by the Supreme Court. Is treason too strong a word?

Via FOX News:
The Supreme Court has upheld the centerpiece of President Obama's health care overhaul, in effect allowing the law to survive. 
In a 5-4 decision unveiled Thursday, the court ruled as constitutional the so-called individual mandate requiring most Americans to obtain health insurance starting in 2014.
The ruling is a victory for the president, ensuring for now that his signature domestic policy achievement remains intact. 
It also ensures that the law will play a prominent role in the general election campaign, as Republican candidate Mitt Romney vows to repeal the law if elected.
Chief Justice John Roberts, who was appointed during a Republican administration, joined the four left-leaning justices on the bench in making the decision.

Have no fear. Mittens Romneycare and the GOP gang that couldn't shoot straight will be here to save us any minute now.

Feels like the 1770s or the 1850s now. What cannot be borne will break the status quo. Always does.

Odd how the party of the slave power and the party of treason remain the same as in 1860.
