Recently, there have been many attempts to get a handle on why there is so much public discontent. I think all the reasoning can be boiled down to one idea: Americans feel powerless. Millions of us look at Washington, D.C. and see one thing and one thing only, namely a ruling class that is completely out of touch with ordinary Americans and their concerns.

Fortunately that same ruling class, in their unbridled hubris, has made a critical error. They’ve presented the public with an extraordinary opportunity to give the federal government one of the grander smack downs that any public could give any out-of-control government. And all the American public has to do to give Washington that smack down is…..nothing.

Right now, the Obama administration is in the process of rolling out the so-called Affordable Healthcare Act that requires millions of Americans to buy health insurance, or pay a fine. It is being rolled out, even as Congress and their staffs remain cradled in their own healthcare cocoon, retaining the 75 percent subsidies on their health insurance premiums, even though the law as written required members of Congress and their staffs to purchase their premiums on the government exchanges created by the law. It is being rolled out even as our president, whose administration’s entire agenda can be reduced to the idea that “we’re going to do whatever we want, and we dare someone to stop us” unconstitutionally dispensed with the employer mandate that was also part of the law as written.

I bring both of these factoids up for two reasons: one, it reveals the utter hypocrisy of Democrats and their media propaganda pushers who, in the midst of the government shutdown, solemnly declared that ObamaCare is the law of the land and must be followed. What they were really saying is that only part of the law must be followed, as in the part that doesn’t screw with the ruling class, and the part that keeps the business community, aka, the wellspring of political campaign contributions, relatively assuaged until the 2014 election is over.

If all of this sounds like the Orwellian idea that “some animals are more equal than others,” it’s because that’s precisely what it is.

I think it’s time the American public gave Congress and the Obama administration a taste of their own medicine, so to speak. Thus I am presenting a simple slogan, that embodies the very same kind of large-scale civil disobedience that progressives cherished during the Vietnam War. To wit:

Don’t sign, don’t pay the fine.

Obama care is another tax and unconstitutional. Don't sign and Don't pay should be the sound heard around the country

Amen!

I Agree

Don't sign what?

Obamo-what. sorry, no understand. I'm from The United States of America. I don't know a foreign language.

HERE IS THE LATEST WORD FROM THE OBLAMEA PROPAGANDA machine. One of the regime's minions was on cspan several minutes ago.  When asked "Who is responsible for the oblameacare website massive malfunctions, he said this:" The people who were responsible for the government shutdown (Translation Ted Cruz and the Tea Party people.) This genius equated the problems on the website with the govenment "shutdown".  A REALLY LAMEASS SADSACK ANALOGY, that there wasn't enough money to fix it. Look at the price tag before the regime even rolled it out on the American People, and the knucklehead said that there wasn't enough money spent to fix it.  Another minion got up and made reference to "Medicare PartD"  saying that the Seniors hated it at first, and after the "glitches" were worked out they like it now.  Yea, but these people didn't lose their coverage on account of Medicare Part D or get a 50 plus percent increase in copays and monthly premiums.

Haven't the Demonrats pinned it on Bush yet?  Maybe they can blame Palin, Cruz or Lee!

I haven't even looked at the website, and I don't plan on it either. It's a waste of bandwidth.

Hello, I have NO intention of signing or paying. I am a New member of the t-party and am trying with all my heart to get a local chapter started in Decatur, In.  WE must WAKE AMERICAN'S up and get them involved. The time has come and gone were as American's we just set back and think our freedom's are safe. If you can help me start up a local chapter PLEASE let me know how. @ stouderc@yahoo.com.  I am very passionate about my Freedom, my Country and everything for which it stands. God is my director and, my family is my moral compass. We must fight back. And not a min. to soon. PLEASE help me get this off the ground. I will build a chapter that is pro-active and not reactive. God Bless, Christian Stouder

God speed, I'm in PA, (voted worst in America for personal freedom). I'm intrenched in a land that I don't know anymore. If I can help you. call on me. your not alone anymore.

I plan to not sign anything to do with Obamacare, and I won't pay any fines, either!  But when I get that first notice to pay a fine, I will be closing my bank account, as inconvenient as that may be.

There is a clause in the Obamacare law that authorizes the government not only to have access to my bank account, but to take out  funds as necessary.  If I close my bank account, and don't own anything substantial, I don't think there will be anything they can do.

I have read that somebody said they could only take the owed money by deducting it from a tax refund (if any was due), and that was the only option they had . . . but I remain unconvinced.  Obama is a natural born thief and liar, and I cannot believe that he would not prepare for an eventual desire by the American people to refuse to pay a fine, and leave himself no options for getting his hands on somebody else's money if he wanted to.

Read the countless new housing edits from this discrimination. (opp's, misspell, NOT) administration. our ancient laws of eminent domain are being twisted in order to take our property without due course. I've emptied my bank accounts and invested in real estate. That won't stop them. I personally will defend my property from any trespassers. no matter who!

ALERT ALERT

YUP: President Trump Signs Great And Beautiful Trump Border Wall During Tour In San Diego

Embedded video

President Donald Trump visited the San Diego border on Wednesday to show off a newly constructed portion of the wall after a fundraising trip in California.

“It’s an amazing project,” Trump said, pointing to the 30-foot high barrier constructed with steel and concrete, noting that it also went six feet underground.

“If you think you’re going to cut it with a blow torch, that doesn’t work, because you hit the concrete, and then if you think you’re going to go through the concrete, that doesn’t work because we have very powerful rebar inside,” Trump said.

The president traveled via motorcade after a fundraiser to Otay Mesa, a community outside San Diego on the United States -Mexico border to review the latest constructed physical barrier.

He pointed out the new wall structure to the press, which was 24 miles of primary and secondary wall at the border.

“We have it covered underground, we have it covered overground,” Trump said.

The president was joined by acting Department of Homeland security Kevin McAllen and several other border security officials.

He said that over 44,000 bollard panels had been set up for the wall, which was then filled with concrete and rebar.

Trump admitted that he envisioned a solid concrete wall when he campaigned for president, but he was told by border officials that they preferred a wall constructed by concrete-filled bollards so they could see through it.

“It’s hardened concrete, very powerful concrete,” Trump said, pointing to the structure.

He added that the steel wall was designed to retain heat, making it harder to climb, plus having an anti-climbing system at the top.

“You can fry an egg on that wall,” he said. The president also acknowledged to reporters that he wanted the wall to be painted black and have spikes but said it was cheaper to let it remain naturally rust-colored.

“We can paint it later,” he said.

The president discussed his growing understanding of border barriers, noting that the Southern border would not need much more than 500 miles of wall to secure the border. He cited the existence of natural mountain and river barriers that prevented criminals from crossing. He did not rule out building additional barriers in the future but said it would depend on whether it was needed.

One border patrol agent spoke about the importance of the border wall to all of the agents, thanking the president for pushing forward on construction.

Trump said he met with Border Patrol prior to constructing the wall, picking the most effective structures to protect the border.

One border security official scoffed at the idea that the wall was a “vanity” project for the president.

“There’s a false narrative out there that this wall is the president’s vanity wall,” he said. “I’m here to tell you right now that that is false.”

He thanked Trump for listening to border patrol agents during the planning and construction process.

“You listened to the agents and you gave them exactly what they asked for,” he said.

One official with Trump confirmed that the structure was funded with regular Congressional appropriations in the FY 2017 and FY 2018 and that that the new wall replaced an inferior structure.

Trump said that he still considered the situation on the border a national emergency, but as more wall went up he could withdraw military forces.

“I hope you’re impressed,” he told reporters as he took questions about the project.

One worker told Trump of a tradition of workers signing the wall if they worked on the wall.

“I’ll sign it,” Trump said, and went to the wall and signed the steel barrier with a marker before encouraging other officials present to do the same.
