Get off the fence

Today, the Supremes ruled on Obamacare, upholding the power of the Congress to require that we purchase health insurance. With Chief Justice Roberts swinging widely to the left, we will find out in the coming days the full ramifications of this ruling.

Enter Mitt Romney. What will he do regarding universal health care, considering this closely mirrors his Massachusetts plan. I dunno. He says that on his first day in office, he will do what the court did not do (repeal Obamacare). We'll see.

But I do know this. If Obama is reelected, we will see more Kagans and Sotomayors sitting on the bench for life. With Mitt, we can only speculate.

Looking at the firearms issue, on the other hand, we have this history of Obama-
  • Fast and Furious - Hundreds of Mexicans and two Federal agents are dead as a result of The ATF's gun walking scheme (This story was broken by fellow bloggers David Codrea and Mike Vanderbeogh, not Cheryl Atkinson of CBS).
  • Long gun sale reporting to ATF in contravention of Federal law in border states.
  • Support of UN gun banning schemes.
  • Obama's support for reinstatement and extension of Clinton's Goldilocks gun ban.
  • Obama's historical opposition to lawful handgun carry by good citizens (the Chicago plan).

We have historically been saddled with the choice of voting for what we call the 'lesser of two evils'. That's still a little less evil.

So, conservative, get off the fence, get the splinters out, and vote R in November.
