The Affordable Care Act has gone to the Supreme Court, and that event has overshadowed another significant event.
The president attempted to single out the oil companies and discriminate against them by removing their business investment write-offs, which every business in America, big or small, enjoys.
He did this by claiming it was time to stop the "subsidies" going to the oil companies, cleverly creating the image of the government cutting a check for big oil. Now I'm not a fan of gas prices or oil companies, but they shouldn't be the only business in the world that can't write-off its business expenses, that's wrong.
What's worse, Barack Obama gets to deceive us by his creative definitions and the mass media by and large allow him to get away with it: Underfunding Social Security becomes a "tax cut"; defending marriage is against the Constitution; trying to control illegal immigration is "discrimination"; balancing the budget is "social Darwinism"; forcing Catholic hospitals to provide chemical abortion through insurance is "protecting a woman's reproductive rights.".
Obama has claimed that if the Supreme Court strikes down his health care reform law, then that will be a case of "judicial activism." That is a gross lie. It is the proper function of the court to review laws in light of the Constitution and strike them down if need be. As a constitutional lawyer, Obama has told a vile lie and revealed himself to be an enemy to the constitutional process.
"Obamacare" is a giant step toward National Socialism. And, although I would not brand Obama another Adolf Hitler or Fidel Castro, redefinitions and outright lies combined with a media that will not do their job are tactics that will inevitably pave the way for a tyrant.
