"...But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security..."

Declare your Independence from ObamaCare!
In one of the most egregious examples of judicial activism in the history of the United States Supreme Court, ObamaCare was ruled constitutional last Thursday. But you and I know better.

Celebrate this 4th of July by declaring YOUR Independence from ObamaCare!
While the Court ruled the individual mandate is unconstitutional under the Commerce Clause of the Constitution, it claimed the law is constitutional as a taxing power of the Constitution.

We must stand our ground! In November, we must send a message to Progressivism that the workers, the producers, the business owners, the citizens of this nation are the final authority! We are the creators of this government. This government is of, by and for the people. It does not exist to rule the people. Ruling us is what this healthcare law authorizes the government to do.
