“But if the watchman see the sword come, and blow not the trumpet, and the people be not warned;

if the sword come, and take any person from among them, he is taken away in his iniquity;

but his blood will I require at the watchman's hand."

Ezekiel 33:6


"A righteous man falling down before the wicked is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring."

Proverbs 25:26

***DUMBASS ALERT: Rep. John Lewis cites "Pursuit of Happiness" as Justification for Health Care Mandate

Is not the US Constitution the supreme law of the land which primarily governs our government?

Rep. John Lewis (D-GA) believes the Constitution justifies Obamacare’s mandate that people must buy health insurance. According to him, the Constitution’s reference to the “pursuit of happiness” specifically justifies that mandate. There’s just one problem, the pursuit of happiness isn’t in the Constitution.
“Well, when you start off with the Preamble of the Constitution, you talk about the pursuit of happiness,” Lews told CNS News regarding the mandate’s justification. ”You go to the 14th Amendment–it’s equal protection under the law and we have not repealed the 14th Amendment. People have a right to have health care. It’s not a privilege but a right.” [Emphasis added]
(See video proof below, otherwise I don't think you would believe that our Congress is this stupid!)

As CNS News points out, it’s the Declaration of Independence that states: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”
Ironic, though, is that opponents of the mandate also cite the Constitution as justification for repeal. According to them, it is unconstitutional for the government to force people to buy insurance. And recently, a federal judge in Virginia agreed.
Finally, though, Lewis’s statement begs the question: what happens of many people’s “pursuit of happiness” doesn’t include buying health insurance, or what if being forced to buy health insurance infringes on people’s “pursuit of happiness?”
