We can look at last week's SCOTUS ruling as a defeat and back off with our tails tucked, or ….

As ConservativeByte put it:

"Roberts’ majority opinion on the issue of the mandate is a painful but perhaps necessary reminder that we have a serious political problem in this country.

Americans must start electing the right members of Congress, not counting on judges to bail us out from bad decisions made by those we have elected. Roberts makes us look in the mirror, perhaps reminding voters that people get the government they deserve.

Indeed, the Chief Justice put it in black and white in his opinion: “It is not our job to protect the people from the consequences of their political choices.”

Take your time and read the words below from Thomas Paine.  Then decide what your legacy will be.

These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.

    Excellent thoughts and the quote from Thomas Paine is exceptionally pertinent.  Keep up the good work!
