  1. Obama 2012 - BEND Forward America, take another 4 long years of OBAMA FAILURE

    Celebrate now. Come November the American people will have the last word on this. Obama and large numbers of Democrats will be removed from office and this leftist travesty will be removed BY THE PEOPLE. It is the ONLY way this country will remain a country of truly FREE PEOPLE.

    Yes! YES! Yes! Another score for President Obama! Can not wait to see what Robmey says today. Last night he said that "tonite the people at the White House will not be getting much sleep" referring to the ACA is unconstitutional. Well guess what, it is, so how will the flip flopper come at this today?

  7. Believe NOT in America, but believe in EUROPE - French excuse and Swiss bank accounts

    The SCOTUS has defined what the November election is all about – Obamacare.

    The GOP must be regretting their choice of Romney, the father of Romneycare.

    Mitt Romney said the thought they would have a hard time sleeping at the White House last night. Well I bet they sleep like LOGS there from tonight to the convention.

    OBAMA 2012. You are a liar. It's done deal come NOV. The voice of the true people will soon dry up the voice of adversaries. And the victory shall sweep through the corners of congress and senate throughout the halls and corners of Washington.

  12. November 6, 2012 -- The Start of the Second American Revolution

    When the USSC rules something as constitutional that a majority of Americans view as UNconstitutional, we have a SERIOUS disconnect in this country. The American PEOPLE will re-assert THEIR interpretation of the Constitution come this November. Leftists, in both government and courts, your days are numbered. The American people will not become your government slaves without a fight.

    Go ahead Romney with your song: "Day one I will repeal Obamacare". Good thinkers are always laughing hearing you saying this. Santorium was right, a vote for Romney is a vote for Pres. Obama. They both initiated and implemented the same Health Care Plan essential to people.

    so now I can retire..........the "tax" penalty is much less than the insurance preminum that keeps me working and since I can't be denied insurance when I need it I'll purchase coverage when necessary....win win for me
