South Carolina Lawmakers Propose 5-Year Jail Sentence for 'Obamacare' Implementation
- Both state and Federal officials could face jail time.
- Republicans at the state level are rediscovering the Bill of Rights and the 10th Amendment.
- Socialism and Big Brother cannot be implemented without help at every level. Republicans must simply re-grow their testicles and refuse to help the Socialists.
South Carolina state Rep. Bill Chumley last week pre-filed a bill for the upcoming legislative session that would criminalize implementation of Comrade Obama's Marxist 2010 healthcare reform law.
If his bill becomes law, any state official caught enforcing the healthcare law would be guilty of a misdemeanor and "must be fined not more than one thousand dollars or imprisoned not more than two years, or both."
Federal officials caught enforcing the law, however, would be given stiffer punishment under the proposal.
Any federal employee or contractor enforcing the law "is guilty of a felony and, upon conviction, must be fined not more than five thousand dollars, or imprisoned not more than five years, or both," the bill proposes.
"I think we're within our rights to do this," Chumley explained to. US News and World Report.
"It's an obligation, I swore an oath to uphold the Constitution and protect the people."
The bill was drafted after the U.S. Supreme Court upheld the constitutionality of the healthcare law in June, a decision that Chumley strongly disagrees with. In response, says Chumley, "we put a little study committee together to look at the possibility of nullification."
Gandhi's non-violence speech
The Federal Government needs you to be a Sheeple and meekly roll over and obey your Masters.
From Gandhi (1982) is a biographical film about Mohandas ("Mahatma") Gandhi, who was a leader of the nonviolent resistance movement against British colonial rule in India during the first half of the 20th century.
Thomas Jefferson referred to nullification as the “moderate middle ground” – the effective path that lies between violent and bloody revolution on one hand and unlimited submission on the other.
The Big Brother Federal government most certainly needs compliance, if not outright assistance, from the states when it does its dirty deeds.
Information-sharing, logistics assistance, access to infrastructure, help from sheriffs blocking roads, and the like. They can rarely pull things off without help from state and local officials.
Just ask the DEA when they come to California. They’re never able to pull off a raid without the help of the local sheriff or police departments. Refusing compliance is vital – and it will set the stage for others to do the same.
