post by Mathew Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel, Oct 15, 2010
[In this post from Staver you see the words constitutional, unconstitutional and lawsuit all wrapped up in a neat little package. Seems odd since an American President takes an oath right from the start to protect and serve the American people. It's pretty much the same oath we in the military took when we were sworn in—to serve and protect the United States of American, foreign and domestic. There's a big difference with the puppet oath. Former President General George Washington added In help me God† to his oath, swearing on an unprotected Bible. Why do you think he did this? While Washington fought for our revolution, Congress constantly stalemated him by denying supplies to his troops. (It was the French who was the ultimate key to the United States' freedom from aristocratic rule.) It helps to read books. Washington believed in the ultimate sacrifice that he and his men took. He knew that the people of this new country came here on religious principles in the first place. He knew what REALLY mattered to these people. He respected that. The puppet's oath was taken on Lincoln's Bible, of all people, and it was encased, not unprotected. As a Moslem (The name Muslim was actually spelled Moslem before they changed it. The reason they changed it was that Moslem means evildoer. They choose Muslim because the word means believer in faith/God†, which is the ultimate lie because the Moslems (Islamics) tried to destroy Christianity twice in world history.) The puppet cannot recant his political standing as a Moslem or he would be put to death, so to avoid the death sentence he chose Lincoln's Bible which is encased. So, you see he actually didn't swear to the American oath! In my opinion, that very deed opened up his right to file suit against States who go against him, opened up the right for him to invade private industry, opened up the right for him to decide that health care is a right given to us by God†—hypocritical thinking since Molem's fight against God†, tooth and nail, to the death, all the time, since the beginning of the world—opens up the right for him to feel he's above everyone else and he doesn't have to abide by American rules or beliefs. In my opinion, lawsuits are not what's needed here. We, as the American citizen, shouldn't have to file a lawsuit against our government to prove that health care is NOT a right given to us by God†. The Supreme Court should have taken the steps first. Congress should have never let it get this far. They have betrayed us and we just sit around and write up lawsuits, call each other names, sign endless petitions. All for What? That's the question, isn't it? I have one more observation—why do people write the word State when referring to a part of the United States with a small "s." The States of this country are important. We should refer to them as "States" with a capital "S."]
As a signer of Liberty Counsel‘s Statement of Support for our pivotal lawsuit against ObamaCare, you know how important it is to stop the outrageous government takeover of our medical industry. Well, we got news just hours ago that there has been a very favorable decision in a Florida Federal District Court for the multi-State complaint filed by 20 States attorneys against ObamaCare‘s mandate to purchase insurance or pay severe penalties! I believe this good news can give OUR case a real boost. That is why I am asking you to read the message below and immediately forward it to 10-20 of your like-minded family members and friends. Your email to 10-20 other conservatives will be a key component to achieving our goals in the court of public opinion as well as helping with the lawsuit itself. Thank you for joining us in this crucial campaign and for engaging your friends in the process!
The Email: One week from tomorrow, I will be arguing in a Federal District Court in defense of our lawsuit against ObamaCare. I will be strongly reasserting our contention that the government’s mandate to buy insurance is unconstitutional. With our pivotal hearing just days away, you can imagine the boost we got when Senior United States District Judge Roger Vinson denied the government’s motion to dismiss Florida’s multi-State challenge to the requirement that nearly all Americans buy insurance under ObamaCare.
As you probably know, the Florida case was filed by 20 State Attorneys General on behalf of the citizens of their respective States. Liberty Counsel‘s case was the first private-party action against ObamaCare and was filed on the same day the puppet signed the bill into law. The Florida Judge saw through the DOJ’s attack—Judge Vinson’s decision correctly identifies ObamaCare as a “controversial and polarizing” law. Further, he allowed that reasonable and intelligent people can disagree in good faith concerning the health care reform law. That’s certainly better ground than the puppet administration, which has demonized any dissent whatsoever, has given us! [He also] denied the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) motion to dismiss, saying reasonable men have argued that “…it was drafted behind closed doors and pushed through Congress by parliamentary tricks, late night weekend votes, and last minute deals among members of Congress who did not read or otherwise know what was in it.”
We couldn’t have described the ObamaCare steamroller any better! Today’s good news adds new resolve to our already intense resistance to ObamaCare‘s takeover of our medical industry. Liberty Counsel‘s lawsuit is moving forward—As you probably know, Attorney General Eric Holder and the DOJ attacked our lawsuit and filed to have it dismissed, just as they did the Florida case. Last month, we filed an extensive response, arguing in no uncertain terms that the U.S. District Court holding jurisdiction must deny the federal government’s motion to dismiss our lawsuit. Next Friday, we will have our first day in court to stop ObamaCare‘s further implementation.

Can I count on you to stand with us?—It will mean a great deal to know that you are standing with us in this lawsuit. As of right now, Liberty Counsel‘s Statement of Support to defeat ObamaCare in court has over 138,000 signers who have already declared…I support litigation challenging the constitutionality of ObamaCare as passed by the 111th Congress. I believe that government-mandated requirements for individuals to obtain health insurance are unconstitutional.
- The Constitution does not grant Congress the power to force Americans to comply with such a mandate.
- I believe requirements that employers provide such insurance coverage are also unconstitutional.
I want to rally 62,000 additional concerned citizens like you to sign our Statement of Support and get us over the 200,000 mark before next Friday! This goal will give us such a substantial number of supporters that it will be impossible for the press—or the White House and the leadership of the 111th Congress that plagued us with ObamaCare in the first place—to belittle or ignore our action! As soon as that milestone is reached, I intend to issue a national press release announcing that 200,000 citizens stand behind Liberty Counsel in our lawsuit to declare the individual mandate at the heart of ObamaCare is unconstitutional! Then, I will walk into Federal District Court next Friday empowered with the knowledge that 200,000 of my fellow Americans are standing with me in that courtroom! Rallying 200,000 like-minded Americans will be an amazing feat—but it is realistically achievable with your help. Please join me and hundreds of thousands of others like yourself in signing the Liberty Counsel “Statement of Support” for our lawsuit against ObamaCare.
ObamaCare is an unworkable, unfolding disaster!—ObamaCare is badly failing the real world test. The puppet blatantly misrepresented what the bill will and will not do. And, of course, the liberal majority of the 111th Congress walked in lockstep with his deceptive rhetoric. It’s also interesting how many politicians who are up for re-election are distancing themselves from ObamaCare or are declaring, “I voted against it!” Some are even openly recanting their yea vote.
In a recent American Thinker commentary, author Deane Waldman cried out, “ObamaCare—Will someone please kill it before it kills us?” With the help of thousands of friends like you, Liberty Counsel intends to answer Waldman’s desperate cry!
Another step toward victory—Winning this stage of the legal process is one more step toward victory. My staff and I have already dedicated many, many hours to defeating it in court. We are committed to this battle and are acting as quickly as the judicial system will allow. I believe our lawsuit is ultimately headed to the Supreme Court. We are working hard in the courts and the court of public opinion to stop this disastrous bill before it inflicts insurmountable damage on our nation. With the help of thousands of friends like you, we will prevail! I also ask you to pray for my staff and me over the next week and especially for God’s favor during the hearing on Friday. Thank you for all you do as a key member of the Liberty Counsel team!
I need to know that you are standing with me in defeating ObamaCare. Please take a minute to sign our Statement of Support. As you can imagine, achieving 200,000 signers will gain extensive national media attention! After signing, consider forwarding this message to 10-20 like-minded people who you believe will also sign our Statement of Support. God† bless you!
