Quote of the day


It is difficult to imagine that a nation which began, at least in part, as the result of opposition to a British mandate giving the East India Company a monopoly and imposing a nominal tax on all tea sold in America would have set out to create a government with the power to force people to buy tea in the first place.

That from Judge Roger Vinson in his decision earlier this week that struck down the individual mandate of ObamaCare and because that portion of the law lacked severability was grounds for striking down the law in its entirety.
