He then makes a comparison between the situation of those days and now, including such observations as:
In contrast, the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) passed exclusively by the Democrats of Congress and signed into law by a Democrat president -- and upheld by a thoroughly confused Supreme Court -- reaches far beyond what those colonists, later revolutionists, found completely intolerable. They rebelled against a certain tax imposed on existing and future transactions, while Obamacare taxes transactions that do not now exist and will not exist.
In 1773 and 1775, Americans rebelled and then revolted against imperial overreach. But so far, we're just going to sit here these days and take it.
It seems to me that a likelihood of the Supreme Court decision is to provide an opportunity to rally the people for a more widespread idea of what it means to “fundamentally transform” America.
National conservative gatherings these last couple of years typically include passing video coverage of some folks dressed as colonial patriots, symbolizing a return to the values of the Founding Fathers. I agree with the sentiment in that I am an originalist.
But perhaps it is time for these people to be changing costumes, from colonialists to Mohawk Indians.
