The Supreme Court: Just Another Wizard Of Oz

Remember when arguments were made before the Supreme Court both for and against the constitutionality of what is known as “ObamaCare”?

You probably heard much of the screeching and shouting about this topic in the news. But I would like you to think about something that you probably didn’t hear – and maybe haven’t thought about – concerning this issue and other issues that come before the Supreme Court:

No matter what opinion the Supreme Court issues in this case, or in any case before them, that decision does NOT have the force of law.

Though a Supreme Court ruling is not unimportant, it is legally binding and enforceable only with respect to the parties in this particular case!

That means that it doesn’t affect anyone else. It doesn’t become law! With respect to the particular parties involved, it’s a ruling. But with respect to the rest of the world, it’s just an opinion!

Here’s the important implication of that truth:

The governor of each and every state retains the full right, and the duty, to determine whether or not the individual mandate (within “ObamaCare”) complies with the U.S. Constitution. Indeed, each governor should determine whether or not the whole scheme of “ObamaCare” complies with the Constitution, rather than allowing it to be accepted as law in his or her state.

I believe that all the fanfare, and all the radio and TV coverage, is a lot of “smoke” designed to convince you and me that the Supreme Court is the “GREAT AND POWERFUL OZ,” and that it is the final arbiter of the constitutionality of this matter and, indeed, of all matters in the country.

But if we look behind the curtain, we find that this simply is not true.

Why am I so sure of this? I read the Constitution. So can you!

    In todays world the Supreme Court doesn't really stand for our constitutionand the way laws should be interpreted.They are based by some of the justices who think their views are better then our constitution.Obutthole scolded Roberts so now Roberts turned into a piece of shit voting for whatever Obozo wants.

    What happened to the nullification issues from the states:
    The left wing central government politicians are calling all of this 10th Amendment State’s rights nullification talk “craziness”. Remember Carter and national 55 mph speed limit, any state that did not comply, didn’t receive Federal highway money. States eventually said screw this, and now we have liberalized, locally controlled speed limits. Obama wants to control every aspect of our lives. From education, property, self protection, and health care, tyranny is upon us. Oklahoma was leading way with:
    SB93 introduced 2/4/13, One quirks of the Oklahoma legislative process and the U.S. Congress is that it operates on a two-year cycle. A total of 2,085 bills and resolutions are being carried over from 2013. Here are a few of them: SB 93, by Sen. Patrick Anderson, R-Enid: Declares the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act invalid in Oklahoma. Will the state decide to openly defy federal law? TBD,
    HB2073 introduced 1/17/13,
    HB1021 introduced 2/4/13 passed house 72-20, Oklahoma State Representative Dr. Mike Ritze recently introduced HB 1021 to nullify ObamaCare. He addressed the Council of The John Birch Society, members and staff at the dinner conference held last fall in Houston, Texas. His speech focused on the efforts that Oklahoma was undertaking to block the new health care law
    Oklahoma will still lead in the Nullification of Obamacare!!!
