Now is it constitutional? Not no but hellll no. Not in my mind.
Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.
Uhh hello? 100 dollars for not buying insurance? Then further rising penalties every year for not buying insurance! Does that sound unusual or even
reasonable to you?
Need more than that? God you folks..
The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to
You are the people and where you choose to spend or not spend your money is up to you and you alone. Have you ever said to your representation "ok
penalize me for not buying insurance" I have not. I'm willing to bet you didn't either. Hmm? Lets look up the word representation for the slow mo
minds out there who are too busy christian bashing to get their heads out of vampire asses.
the action of speaking or acting on behalf of someone or the state of being so represented.
Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the
United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction.
Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.
Again, representation, you didn't ask for this penalty but you got it. and when you asked to have it removed what happened? Second, where does that
amednment say you can be forced to enter any contract for any service or labor without your consent? Then is this not a penalty causing involuntary
The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and
without regard to any census or enumeration.
You can be Taxed, It doesn't say you can be forced to buy anything under face of penalty. The law is written and passed by a former congress, singed
by the president and upheld by the supreme court right? And they tagged this penalty to the end of the year AS A PENALTY. Not a TAX.
The right of citizens of the United States to vote in any primary or other election for President or Vice President, for electors for President or
Vice President, or for Senator or Representative in Congress, shall not be denied or abridged
by the United States or any State by reason of
failure to pay poll tax or other tax.
If in any manner due to this penalty you cannot vote? Hmm? You just paid 600 dollars in penalties and now you cant go vote because you have no money
to get to the polls? SOMEONE BROKE THE DAMN LAW.
BIGGER THAN # right here god save us all. 14th amendment
The privileges and immunities
that are protected under Article IV include the right to receive protection from state government; the right
to acquire and possess all kinds of property
; the right to travel through or reside in any state for purposes of trade, agriculture, or
professional endeavors; the right to claim the benefit of the writ of Habeas Corpus; the right to sue and defend actions in court; and the right to
receive the same tax treatment as that of the citizens of the taxing state.
"No state shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunities
of citizens of the United States." This clause
protects a person's rights as a citizen of the United States from unreasonable State Action or interference.
Ok where is this "Penalty" happening? Its handed down from federal- without regard to federalism (see amendment 10) to the states, to be enforced by
the states against your will.
Article 1 section 9
No Preference shall be given by any Regulation of Commerce or Revenue to the Ports of one State over those of another; nor shall Vessels bound to, or
from, one State, be obliged to enter, clear, or pay Duties in another.
Ok.. are states right now getting better costs for insurance than another? Says all over the news they are.
Whats an Ex post facto Law? and why are we talking about it.
Laws that provide for the infliction of punishment upon a person for some prior act that, at the time it was committed, was not illegal.
Hello? was it ever illegal to not buy insurance before? It is now! The federal government has mandated a penalty, therefor made it a crime to not buy
insurance and seeks to continuously punish an individual or groups of individuals every year for non compliance of this law. It has never been illegal
to not buy insurance and every time you cant.. go figure it out.
I could probably go on and on and have not seen anything that says christians have acted against their own faiths or will towards charity. What I have
seen is federal Government overstepping its authority and consent. I dont know how many more ways I can explain it.
Power of the purse? I mean good god. Why cant the congress recognize a right for the people that allows us all to ignore any law or action passed if
we feel its an infringement on our right to liberty? # I mean it says in our constitution here.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable
, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness
.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among
Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is
the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it.
Is this law not part of government? Then why he hell cant it be abolished? Has this law affected your lives? infringed on your liberties.. are you
HAPPY ABOUT IT?
sigh I'm done.
