When is the meth mouth going to start showing?

Modern Conservatism is Mussolini's Fascism with a flag sticker and a magnetic ribbon stuck on its ass. It is self contradictory, suicidal, and lacks internal consistency. And it certainly eschews the preamble of the Constitution-in order to form a more perfect union (secessionists like Rick Perry), establish justice and ensure domestic tranquility (FBI/police moles on legitimate dissent groups, tasers, GOP convention sturmgeschutz), provide for the common defense (9/11), promote the general welfare (block health care, regressive taxation schemes, cut spending for infrastructure and public services, starve granny to death in an unheated refrigerator box on the street), secure the blessings of liberty (military commissions, cancel habeas corpus, unending detention even when found not guilty, secret prisons, death squads). Those are some winning platforms!

“Fascism: A political philosophy that exalts nation above the individual and stands for centralized autocratic government with severe economic and social regimentation and forcible suppression of opposition”
Actually, this sounds much more like Nancy Pelosi and her very Liberal ilk rather than the Constitution-As-It-Was-Written State's Rights supporters on the right. Check your definitions before you try to use big, grown-up words.
Simply put, there are 18 specific functions of the federal government written in the Constitution with all other functions reserved to the States per Amendment #10. “Health Care” is not a function of the federal government. It is a function of the States. Neither Congress nor the President have the authority to impose such a law. The authority they do have is to withhold funding until States do what they want. Then it is up to the States, separately and independently, to decide whether they really want said federal funding.
Please read your founding documents: the Big Three (Independence, Constitution and Rights) and also read the Federalist Papers. Read them on your own without input from anyone else, think for a while and make up your own mind what they mean.
