Independence Day - #4018 - David Limbaugh: The Court Breathes New Life Into the Great Destroyer - Townhall

As we celebrate the Fourth of July and contemplate its glorious significance, recent events have brought into sharp relief the precarious condition of America's unique liberty tradition. Our Constitution is the best written guarantor of human liberty in human history, but its safeguards do not make it completely bulletproof against systematic assaults undermining its integrity. In a little more than three years in office, President Obama has distinguished himself as the Great Destroyer of our liberties through a comprehensive set of policies that are at war with the American idea and are succeeding in fundamentally transforming America, in fulfillment of Obama's promise. Just in the past few weeks, we've witnessed multiple body blows against our freedoms, in areas ranging from immigration to "Fast and Furious" to Obamacare to the economy to race relations to state sovereignty to our very social compact itself........Then Justice Roberts, who was said to be exceedingly concerned with maintaining the integrity and image of the court, reportedly caved to political pressure and changed his opinion and then engaged in contorted reasoning to rationalize the perverse and dangerous result his vote delivered. His ruling doesn't merely validate the unconstitutional monstrosity known as Obamacare; it opens the door for a horrifying expansion of power under the congressional taxing authority, notwithstanding elitist apologists who sanguinely assure us the consequences of the ruling are limited. Justice Roberts apparently forgot that his first duty is not to protect the "image" of the court but to protect the Constitution, of which the court is the primary steward. Whether or not he intended to, Justice Roberts breathed new life, for now, into the Great Destroyer, making November that much more important. If the tea party was taking a brief nap -- as some have suggested (but I don't believe) -- the federal government has awoken it with an ear-piercing alarm that will not quit ringing before Election Day. On this Fourth of July, let's truly reflect on America's Constitution and its liberty and redouble our resolve and commitment to recapturing both.  Read entire article.......
