Jun 11, 2012 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: National Public Radio

Mitt Romney's team is sticking by his comment in Council Bluffs, Iowa, on Friday that voters' desire for smaller government means they don't want more cops, teachers or firefighters.

"If the individual mandate is unconstitutional, how could our first president require every citizen to buy a gun?
...Establishing state militias and a national standard for their operation, the Militia Act explicitly required every “free able-bodied white male citizen” between the ages of 18 and 45, with a few occupational exceptions, to “provide himself with a good musket or firelock, a sufficient bayonet and belt, two spare flints, and a knapsack, a pouch with a box therein to contain not less than twenty-four cartridges, suited to the bore of his musket or firelock, each cartridge to contain a proper quantity of powder and ball; or with a good rifle, knapsack, shot-pouch and powder horn, twenty balls suited to the bore of his rifle, and a quarter of a pound of powder..
...Subsidized or not, however, the founders saw no constitutional barrier to a law ordering every citizen to buy a gun and ammo.”

Woohoo.
It's simple. The defense of the nation is a constitutionally mandated duty of the Federal Government, specifically stated.

Health care is not.

Our next option to end ObamaCare..which the vast majority of Americans want to do, is to simply remove Barack Obama and the social Democrats from office in November.

That is our goal.

Woohoo!

Yes it is in the general welfare. Even your right wing extremist freak Scalia said that taxing for Medicare is CONSTITUTIONAL you nitwit.

Are all of you this dumb?

Mormon Messiah Bishop Willard Mutt Romney descendant of the Apostles and White Horse Prophecy Mormon hero will campaign on:

1. Fighting against himself as Governor when he fought for and won the individual mandate WITH tax penalties. He can punch himself in the face and declare defeat.

2. Promising to eliminate patient protections and affordable health care for all Americans while he receives tax payer paid health care for himself and his disgracefully large brood.

3. Promising to rip provisions like coverage for adult children and no preexisting condition discrimination from American families. These provisions are HUGELY popular among Americans and Mutt is promising to kill them.

4. Promising to be a dictator (insane and incompetent and all purpose stupid) and get rid of Obamacare on the first day even though POTUS would not have the power to do this.

God, the more you know the freak the worst he looks. To know Mormon Messiah Bishop Romnutz is to despise him.

Not a smart thing for Romney to say, in many places public safety has been neglected and more officers should be hired. Public safety should be the first priority of government.

That certainly shows how important it is to make sure abortions are being done safely and by qualified medical personnel. Look what a screw up yours turned out to be.

Yet Romney is still in a statistical dead-heat with sitting President Obama for the election this November, precisely because at least half the nation doesn't believe you, nor do they accept your religious bigotry.

Health care is not a constitutional right, it's as simple as that. If it were, it wouldn't have taken 230 years for the U.S. to enact ObamaCare.

Fully 60% or better of Americans want ObamaCare repealed. They've seen their insurance rates climb since it's been enacted, and employers have let America know that they will not be hiring due to the costs involved.

ObamaCare is bad for America. Period. Government has no place dictating mine, nor anyone else's, health care.

No I want to know why the federal government is buying a billion bullets that it can't use in warfare. Remember, you loons are against unfair punishment, which using hollow points will cause untold damage to what they hit, which could mame as well as kill.....but again what is Obama doing, donating to the Chicago gangs to protect him with his private army he wanted.

Acceptance of the warmonger illegal Kenyans policies is perfectly OK with the mentally ill liberals. Many of the illegal things he has done (as instructed to him by his bosses) would be grounds for impeachment at the least. Treason is much more appropriate but the spineless Rino's and blue dog Dems are afraid of the alleged race war if the usurper were to be cuffed and removed. Vote ROMNEY and hold his feet to the fire if elected!!!!!!!

NO MO BO!

That is because the FASCIST SCOTUS passed the FASCIST takeover of the USA by passing Citizens United.

Obama will be outspent, maybe by 50%, maybe even more this go around.

Republiscum are Goebbels-style propagandists. You are just the eater of their filth.

You leftists always have an excuse for your failures. You snivel and whine about being outspent, people voting against their own self-interest, conservatives lie, we're fascists, blah blah blah.

It can never simply be that your ideas are so ridiculous that they simply cannot work, other than to make matters worse.

But it really IS that simple.

Barack Obama sold the United States a bill of goods. He promised all things to all people, and couldn't deliver on but a fraction of it..and then it was the wrong fraction to boot. Focusing on health care while the economy continues to crash and burn is a perfect example of a man who is more concerned about his personal legacy rather than the good of the nation.

Barack Obama has proven to be inexperienced, ineffective, and incompetent. He, and his big-government solutions, do not deserve another chance.

What passes for liberalism today is a failed ideology of big government solutions to problems caused primarily by government itself. Such an ideology deserves to be utterly destroyed and finally relegated to the dustbin of history.

4. Obama passed the largest tax increase in history with Obama Care
5. TIRED OF DOING NOTHING BUT CAMPAIGNING……..PRESIDENT TAKES THE WEEK OFF.
