A Gun pointed at your head
Obama Care and many federal programs start with grand ideals and end up as a gun pointed at the heads of the American people. The gun is taxation and threats of fines, demonization and jail time for those who fail to pay or go along with the programs.
The 10th amendment States that Powers not granted to the federal government nor prohibited to it by the States are reserved to the states or the people.”
My Question is when and how did we the people grant the feds with the power to take control of healthcare, welfare, education, the environment and the very idea of federal supremacy over laws and issues not specifically granted the federal government by the Constitution of the United States. Was there some kind of Kabuki dance by our elected officials to override the 10th amendment?

It now seems that what King George did; We are now doing to ourselves.
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.–That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, –That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, (Declaration of independence par. 2)
When the choice of our leaders comes down to a choice between someone that respects the constitution and one that believes that the constitution is an obstacle to the tyrannical rule she desires. One who has promised to appoint judges that would water down the safeguard of our liberty guaranteed in the constitution.
The choice is clear
