So What Now?

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience."-C.S. Lewis

The Supreme  Court has decided today to uphold the Affordable Care Act, also known as ObamaCare.

What now, indeed?

I don't want anyone to require me to buy health insurance, even if I were wealthy and could afford the best coverage. Say what you want about the rest of it.

I don't like being told what to do.

I do not give a crap about the assurances that "oh, only about 6% of people will be paying the fine, it's okay."

Uh, no, it's not okay.

I don't want to be required to buy something or face paying a fine if I don't. That's officially robbery. Actually, it's more like extortion.

Am I being dramatic?

I don't think so. The government needs to get their greasy fingers out of my freaking pockets and back off.

Bring on the zombie apocalypse. It's probably cheaper anyway.
