    • Did It Happen Or Did It Not? April 3, 2010
      It’s been what, three weeks since Rep Emanuel Cleaver claimed he was spit on? And now he won’t talk about it? I know if some guy spit on me, I’d kick his ass! I understand that a politician might choose a different option, but he sure as hell would want that guy punished and not […]

    • “Right Wing Domestic Terrorism” Assumptions April 2, 2010
      So much for the Leftist assumptions and chants of “right wing domestic terrorism” playing a role in the nine Hutaree terrorists. They blast that if a person is a Christian, then they must be a right winger. I find the exact opposite to be true out here, where the Catholics and Christians are usually on […]

    • Phil Hare (D-IL) Is A Sad Fool April 2, 2010
      How a member of Congress can disregard the US Constitution, which they swore to uphold and protect, is frightening. Of course, you won’t see this in the MSM, because they are still salivating over Catholic priests raping young boys. How sad that he thought life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness was in the US […]

    • A Retard and A Bunch of Teabaggers March 28, 2010
      Such words echo the comments section of CNN’s article on yesterday’s Tea Party in Senator Harry Reid’s hometown. And we’re being told the Left is so tolerant of others? Give me a F*cking break. SocratesNJ Interesting that the Tea-Baggers have the time and money to go to Nevada. I figure that they’re either collecting socialistic […]

    • Thoughts On Mesa, Arizona March 28, 2010
      I just got back from a week long trip in Mesa, Arizona. Some comments: The flight from Chicago to Mesa was about 3.5 hours. Not bad, and no headaches this time! Last time I was on an airplane was three years ago. The flight was Chicago to Orlando-about 2 hours, but I got a terrible […]

    • Global Warming Causes…Violence? WTF? March 27, 2010
      As if the Man-Made Global Warming (aka ManBearPig) movement wasn’t crazy enough, it just got a little crazier. Global warming could make the world a more violent place, because higher temperatures increase human aggression and create volatile situations, a new study says. The report combined government data about average yearly temperatures with statistics o […]

    • Comforting The Pro-Choice Side March 26, 2010
      NPR decided to provide more comfort to the Pro-Choice side of the Abortion debate. Here’s the memo that was just distributed to all NPR staff: “NPR News is revising the terms we use to describe people and groups involved in the abortion debate. This updated policy is aimed at ensuring the words we speak and […]

Little Brother Fights Big Brother

Posted by Anthony on March 20, 2010

Last Wednesday, Idaho Governor Otter signed the Idaho Health Care Freedom Act, which challenges the current health care bill in Congress, dubbed “ObamaCare”.

The Idaho Health Care Freedom Act says in part, “every person within the state of Idaho is and shall be free to choose or decline to choose any mode of securing health care services without penalty or threat of penalty.”

Gov. C.L. “Butch” Otter, a Republican, said Wednesday he signed it because he believes any health care laws should ensure people are “treated as an individual, rather than as an amorphous mass whose only purpose in this world is to obey federal mandates.”

I like this. While many people can not afford health insurance, many others simply choose not to have it. It is their risk and their gamble, but that’s the blueprint of insurance. The government can not force citizens to buy health insurance.

Sure, these bills won’t do much, because as it goes, federal law > state law. Even so, it is nice to see some states recognizing the irresponsibility in the Democrats’ health care “reform” bill and taking action.
