Texas reacts to the Supreme Court Decision
A man is defined by his actions and ability to move forward after setbacks. Greg Abbott is that man of strength, and courage. The Texas Attorney General did not go quietly after the Supreme Court Decision on Obamacare. It appears the court decision has inspired him to fight harder for America, liberty, and the constitution. This week was a whirlwind tour of speaking engagements with different groups of Americans to explain the latest decision by the Supreme Court regarding Obamacare.
In Plano Texas, there was a Rally for Freedom sponsored by the Texas Conservative Coalition Research Institute. The crowd was anxious to hear what crumbs of hope the Texas Attorney General, Greg Abbott could give to them.
There were several states involved in the Supreme Court Case. Per usual, on high profile cases, they asked the Attorney General of Texas to be one of the key legal minds involved. We now have one option left to the American People. It is critical to vote in a new President, a conservative controlled Senate, and a conservative controlled House in November. This is the choice remaining, to protect America from this overreaching action by the Federal Government. It was clearly stated this was a disasterous Supreme Court decision that took everyone by surprise.
People in the courtroom were fairly comfortable when the decision began talking about commerce and how this argument was not a constitutional premise for the law. As the reading continued, a 180 was done, and the weaker reasoning on taxation privilege was introduced. The gallery was stunned and mouths were agape per others who were actually in the courtroom.

The decision cannot be overturned, as this was the last stop on the judicial ladder. Arguing about whether the additional outlay of cash is a penalty or a tax is a waste of time. One option is left, America must work fervently, tirelessly, and focus on domination of all branches of government.
On the Americans for Prosperity call, there was a stunning moment of clarity for the thousands who crowded onto the call. One of the audience asked a question, using examples. “Could the government charge a penalty if people choose not to buy a smart car?”, stated the caller. Attorney General Abbott, said “yes, that is our problem now.” The Supreme Court has ruled the Congress has unlimited power to levy taxes on activity and inactivity. A pin drop could have been heard after that dash of cold water on the audience.
Liberty suffered greatly because of this decision. To overturn Obamacare, and get real solutions for Americans, we must not let a moment go wasted between now and November.
In 1775, Americans said enough and made their voices heard around the world. In 2012, we must do the same.
God bless America on this fourth of July. Give Americans courage for the fight ahead.
