I refused to buy any insurance under forced participation.I finally get a letter from the IRS stating that I have to pay a tax [penalty] for refusing to purchase insurance for the first offense in the amount of
Insurance is NOT taxable to start with and if it were I did not purchase it, so there would be NO tax since no money exchanged hands.MONEY MUST exchange hand because the tax is based on the amount of money spent in a percentage..
If we do NOT buy a home OR car or whatever, will they eventually punish us by making us pay a huge tax, although no money exchanged hands? Even a half grown kid knows that's ILLEGAL.
of course it is not a tax.It is a PENALTY or FINE or whatever you wanna call it besides TAX.I will tell you what it is though.
IT IS EXTORTION by the united states government OR should i say communist dictators in a corrupt government?It is FORCED CONTROL over the american people.You cannot deny that can we.
One clarification.I think everyone should have healthcare but by their own choosing. It is the FORCED purchasing that I am against, NOT healthcare.
Our government has overstepped its authority given it by the people.That government MUST be removed from office legally or the corruption will grow into something much more sinister.
I would vote for a total stranger off the streets before I would vote for barack obama and that's why I endorse Mitt Romney.He may not be perfect but he has obama beat to hell in sincerity for the protection of this country..

Chief justice robber may in fact have done the american people a big favor because now voting for barack obama in the upcoming election just dropped by a huge percentage. by the way, someone tell me why this cannot be appealed for another hearing on the grounds that whether it is a tax or ? Can just one man make it so?
also, are all those millions of mexicans he gave short term amnesty?? to going to pay for it in a tax or go to jail? Is this taxation without representation?
What I do know,Is that our country is going to hell unless the american people start doing something beside TALK.If americans hit the streets of washington in the thousands or millions will they get cut down by machine guns or other means for protesting like the dictators do in other countries?
Well, maybe that's what it is coming to if somethings does not change.

The below is a pretty clear example of how the law is disregarded by a corrupt government where the president of the United States disregards constitutional law by using the courts and executive order and other government people who are his minions and who lets a group like the "bilderberg Group" dictate policy to a sitting president.lots of them are not even american citizens but citizens of other countries.
if we order someone murdered we would be arrested and tried for murder - guess some people are just ABOVE the law if in fact barack obama is held responsible for the killing of the person mentioned in the article below...read the first sentence carefully.

Ron Paul said Monday that President Barack Obama’s targeted killing of Anwar al-Awlaki might be an impeachable offense.
Asked at a Manchester, N.H. town hall meeting about last week’s killing of the American-born Al Qaeda leader, the Texas congressman said impeachment would be “possible,” but that he wants to know more about how the administration “flouted the law.”
Paul called the killing a movement toward “tyranny.”
“I put responsibility on the president because this is obviously a step in the wrong direction,” Paul said. “We have just totally disrespected the Constitution.”

Thank you for an interesting article. I comment with some regularity, but I had only guessed at how things might be organized behind the scenes. Now I know. http://www.businessweek.com/magazine/comment-moderator-the-dirtiest-job-on-the-internet-12012011.html
This article was a pleasure to read, and it would seem to sum up the people's moral position vis-a-vis the government's unlawful exercise of power. But I am surprised that there is no mention of Virginia and Kentucky Resolutions, which carefully laid out the remedy of nullification. As Thomas Woods, Jr. says in his book by that title, "Nullification provides the shield between the people of a state and an unconstitutional law from the federal government."
Nullification is already a factor in our daily lives, and I believe it is rapidly becoming a more prominent one. Contrary to much of our history, where nullification was found to be a defensive action by the people, the government itself can be said to have adopted the practice by their refusal to enforce laws that run counter to their interests. But, even as that happens, a number of states are already well along the path in passing preemptive legislation to nullify federal law. To see where matters stand today one can go to the Tenth Amendment Center's website which documents state initiatives nation-wide. I broach the subject only because it seems to me that the exercise of the Tenth Amendment by the states is establishing the theater in which the conflicts between the federal government and the people will ultimately be thrashed out.
It is potentially a dangerous game, but in my view, it is no longer possible definitively to resolve matters of state sovereignty within the federal government. Checks and balances, as they are now used, no longer serve to limit the power of government, but only to negotiate power among the branches.

Kelly. You are absolutely correct. It is going to take a nation wide act of defiance to get this bill flushed. Personally, I have absolutely zero intention of conforming to the edict of purchasing health insurance. If I get sick I go to "Urgent Care" and pay the bill myself. I don't sponge off the county like so many do and go to the county hospital ER. I have too much pride to suck off the teet of the state/county, unlike so many freeloaders that currently occupy our towns and cities. As for "major" illness, I have a DNR that should take care of that and if the DNR is not called into play, I have a "plan of action" to mitigate the expense of a long term terminal illness. I refuse to be a burden to anyone.
We, as a nation, MUST say "Not only no but Hell no" to the Albatross fondly called ObamaCare. If the IRS wants to come after me, then let them. This is assuming that the U.S. is still the U.S. by 2014.

We must absolutely use civil disobedience with this law. It will be our only option. Does anyone seriously think that Romney is going to do anything about this if he gets in? It will be one excuse after another. Everyone is looking at him to save us but we must man up and save ourselves by refusing to comply. Not one comment that i have read on here touched on this which was the basis for the article. We have become a nation of sheep and not men.

I absolutely do not understand the need for this monstrosity of a program.
The poor will still be on medicaid
The old and infirmed will still be on Medicare
Military Vets will have the VA.
Illegals still won’t have to pay.
Government employees won’t be obligated to join Obamacare
Some Unions and Big Industries got waivers.
People who are covered with their employers will still be covered.
So,who is this bill aimed at?
The “30 million” uninsured?
So we have to have this huge complicated mess just for them?
And if it’s not a tax,then why is the IRS going to enforce it?

Obama may like the 5-4 decision but, most likely, will not like the consequences of ObamaTax.

An Unjust Law is No Law at All: Why Obamacare Must Fall
Posted by Kelly OConnell on Jul 2, 2012 at 07:11 AM
Thomas Jefferson -- "Rebellion to Tyranny is Obedience to God."
When Obamacare was recently affirmed, many Americans assumed bad law was established as constitutional—that wrong had trumped right. In fact, as heirs to the constitutional history of Europe connecting back to the earliest Greek and Roman thinkers and biblical writers, there is no compelling reason to accept an evil law. It is the Western concept that claims a set of precepts exists above all human law which is used to model and judge our own temporary laws. In fact, one can argue persuasively that without the notion of good law above used to fight against evil laws, the West as we know it would have never evolved.More...
