The Founders were men of honor and courage, unlike many of the current political class. Having lived under the tyranny of George III, the drafters of the Constitution did their best to make it tyrant proof. Unfortunately, when two or all three branches are controlled by dishonorable cowards, there is no such thing as "tyrant proof."
If Obamacare becomes law, whether via the "Slaughter solution" or otherwise, our only chance of salvation will lie with the Supreme Court, and I would not put it past this bunch to emasculate that body somehow, or at least those Justices who believe that the words in the Constitution actually mean something concrete per se, as opposed to being "guidelines" which cast "penumbras" from which rights "emanate."
I continue to be astounded at the degree to which Obama, Pelosi and Reid (Oh, my!) seem to be using the nation portrayed in "Atlas Shrugged" as a template for their plans for our country. They deserve every bit of the infamy that their activity will engender. It's a shame that our laws provide no way of getting rid of them before the next election cycle, because the amount of damage they can do in the next couple of years will be flabbergasting.
