Criminalizing the Middle Class

According to a Townhall report,
Nearly 4 million Americans, the vast majority of them middle class, will have to pay the new penalty for not getting health insurance when Barack Obama's health care overhaul law kicks in, according to congressional estimates released Thursday.
I'm reminded of the dialogue in Atlas Shrugged when Floyd Ferris was told that many would be unable to follow a recently passed law. His response (paraphrasing): "What good would that do us?"

The real criminals here are the rights-violating Feds who recently ramped up the stakes in the cold Civil War brewing. Here's hoping they end up in jail before anyone else does.

If the elitist pinhead mentality persists in Washington, the "cold" Civil War won't stay that way:
At the rate at which assault rifles are flying off gun store shelves, I see an America unwilling to give legitimacy to Obama's white slavery with compliance.
Excessive taxation has led to more insurrections than anything in history than - perhaps - enslavement...The next civil war will have been caused by both!
