A recent Times editorial discusses the never before used method, listed in Article V of our Constitution, which gives a group of two-thirds of the states power to write amendments to the U.S. Constitution. This allows changes which Congress would not do, term limits for example.

Our Founders, with remarkable foresight, set this up as protection against a tyrannical, misguided federal government such as ours, which is changing our country into one we no longer recognize.

President Barack Obama repeatedly violates our Constitution, with executive orders changing laws with no authority and forcing Obamacare upon us against our will. Even the Supreme Court decision allowing Obamacare was itself unconstitutional.

This health care takeover by Democrats in Congress completes the destruction of what was once the best medical care on this planet. Worse, our freedom of choice in all aspects of our lives is lost as well.
