Yes, we are the ones we’ve been waiting for…

Happy Independence Day! Most contemporary Americans probably hadn’t fully digested what “independence” means, but we’re getting a giant-sized dose right now.

We say that because among other things, the U.S. Supreme Court’s stunning acquiescence in the abominable health care law is a stark demonstration that when it comes to defending liberty, we’re on our own.

If there’s anything positive about last Thursday’s ruling aside from the fact that it will increase conservative voter turnout, it’s that we must all now be thoroughly disabused of the notion that someone else, somewhere, will fix things before they go horribly wrong and we suffer genuine consequences.

Many of us had fallen into the habit of thinking that the Supreme Court was there to protect us against the attacks of rogue government. Turns out there’s nobody to protect us except us.

We’re surprised no one else has said this but the fundamental absurdity—or insanity—of the health care ruling is that by the Court’s shoddy reasoning, liberals get to do what they want to do because they were wrong. We’re left to assume that If Democrats had been right (i.e., the individual mandate was not a tax,) the court would have voided their action.

But we’re dealing with absurdity/insanity, so don’t be too sure.

There’s only one remedy.  For every office, from dogcatcher to the White House, it’s up to each of us to actively support genuine conservatives and prod everyone we know and trust to do the same.  Those others who were supposed to save us aren’t coming.

They never were.
