Federalism: the Best Medicine
by Jordan Sillars, Convention of States
Frustration with the federal government is nationwide. From Maine to California, folks are fed up with Washington’s health care “reform,” immigration “reform,” financial “reform,” and countless other missteps. But these issues are mere symptoms. The disease runs much deeper, right to the heart of the American system of government.
The shutdown, for example, was the result of an issue much larger than the health care debate. As Colorado State Senator Kevin Lundberg explains, the shutdown was caused by a disregard for one of the most important concepts in American government: federalism.
The Chicago Tribune offers a blistering critique of Obamacare, calling for delay and massive overhaul.
by Bradford Thomas, Truth Revolt
As predicted, the reality of Obamacare is ripping even its most staunch supporters’ narratives to pieces. Like the New York Times Sunday, the Chicago Tribune has now turned on the president’s signature achievement.
Monday’s editorial begins by expressing sympathy to those who have tried to sign up for the “problem-plagued” exchanges, presenting a devastating personal account as proof:
If you’ve tried to sign up online for health coverage under the problem-plagued Obamacare exchange, our sympathies. Many people have tried to create accounts and shop for insurance under the new law. Few have succeeded. Those that have enrolled have found that the system is prone to mistakes. Some applications have been sent to the wrong insurance company.
Wait. It gets worse. [snip]

Flopping Aces has extensively documented the pain Barack Obama has chosen to inflict on this country because his highness is displeased that his servants in the GOP refuse to kneel.
It seems that Obama still has the pedal to the metal screaming down Agony Avenue in the Hurt Limo.

- Private information you post while signing up for Obamacare may be used against you in a court of law.

Ben Carson Compares Obamacare to Slavery; Calls Americans to Not Be Ashamed of God
By Tyler O’Neil, Christian Post
In a speech at the Values Voter Summit, Ben Carson, former pediatric neurosurgury director at the Johns Hopkins Children’s Center who shot to fame earlier this year when he gave a politically incorrect speech at the National Prayer Breakfast, compared President Obama’s healthcare reform law to the institution of slavery and called Americans to not be ashamed of their Judeo-Christian heritage.
“‘Obamacare’ is really, I think, the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery,” proclaimed Carson on Friday afternoon. “In a way, it is slavery…because it is making all of us subservient to the government.”
“It was never about health care – it was all about control,” the neurosurgeon added.

by Rebecca Hartmann, Truth Revolt

He closed his segment by saying that while the Republican party was started to outlaw slavery it only exists now to block everything the first black president wants to do.

Even though they were warned there could be trouble, a Kansas school board nevertheless voted to allow student-led prayers and even use of the school’s public address system to do so.
At its meeting on September 23, the school board in Liberal voted unanimously (7-0) to allow student-led prayers at all school activities and to provide access to the school’s public address system. According to the Leader & Times newspaper, the item was added “spontaneously” to the agenda near the end of that meeting.
