Where the Court Took Us

If Congress can do whatever in their discretion can be done by money, and will promote the General Welfare, the Government is no longer a limited one, possessing enumerated powers, but an indefinite one, subject to particular exceptions.

Letter to Edmund Pendleton

With its Obamacare ruling, the U.S. Supreme Court destroyed the last vestiges of Constitutional restrictions on the ability of congress to encroach without any limitations on all but a few specific and narrowly defined rights of individuals and the states.

Chief Justice John Robber and his cohorts have made it clear that individual liberties and a free society probably will require restoration by people doing more with their firearms than just clinging to them.
