Dear Mr. President from a family physician

Dear Mr. President,

With all due respect due your office, your policies are destroying the potential opportunities for all US citizens present and future – the same opportunities our country extended to you that made your success possible. Your administration has the highest debt of any previous in our country’s history. Adding to this debt is your signature achievement, PPACA Obamacare, that is destroying any semblance of private individual healthcare in our country. Your three fundamental promises about PPACA Obamacare – “you can keep your health plan,” “you can keep your doctor,” “you’ll save $2,500 per family” – were all bold face lies. There is mounting evidence that your administration had known since 2010 that these were untrue. This is an impeachable offense. Despite the dozens of times you reassured the media and public that “you can keep your health plan,” millions of people are losing their affordable health insurance and being forced by your law to purchase more expensive bloated coverage that they do not want to purchase and cannot afford. So your promise of saving a family $2,500 per year is another lie. Your law now taxes them if they will not or cannot purchase this government determined coverage from the government approved for profit vendors. Even Chief Justice Roberts, in his head and heart when he wrote the minority opinion, knows it is unconstitutional. Instead, he legislated from the bench that it was a tax not a fine, despite the legal argument your administration made.

In the three years since 2010 passage of PPACA Obamacare, your administrations HHS secretary Kathleen Sebelius carelessly spent over $600,000,000 of taxpayer and borrowed money to design and implement and insurance data exchange system that didn’t function appropriately for the whole first month of the public offering. Worse, many security experts caution the the system is inadequate and untested for privacy and security of most sensitive personal health information, thereby violating HIPAA law and HITECH act.

PPACA Obamacare establishes untested ACOs accountable care organizations that slant the entire health industry away from small private offices toward large health systems, that are neither efficient or cost effective. So your message, “You can keep your doctor,” is another lie as doctors are leaving their offices and some are leaving the practice of medicine altogether as they can’t keep up with the burdensome regulations and costly government compliance programs forced on our industry by insurance and government entities.

As a direct result of PPACA Obamacare onerous regulations, health insurance plan prices have increases 20-200%. This has in turn caused employers to pass those costs on to taxpaying employees or cancel their coverage altogether. Employers are also reducing full time jobs to part time jobs to avoid the tremendous cost liability in the new government compliant plans. This is dismantling our economy. Data shows that your administration knew back in 2010 that PPACA Obamacare would result in employees costs increasing and millions losing their coverage, yet you repetitively lied to the American public. Citizens who work to support themselves and our country do not deserve this ignorant treatment from you and your administration.

Central planning, socialism, communism and fascism have ingloriously failed in the world wherever they have been tried throughout world history. Why must we make those well intentioned mistakes that have destroyed other great governments and enlightened societies. Health and economy are bottom up, not top down. The government can’t make laws to force people to be successful at their own health or financial affairs.

The government can foster success by making educational resources available and not restricting success by taxing it out of existence. People and corporations must experience all the risks and benefits of their decisions. Bailouts, personal and corporate welfare programs encourage dependency on government, not independence and self sufficiency. Small centralized government that handles defense should stay out of our health and personal lives and allow us to live learn and prosper.

Mr president, PPACA Obamacare is a poorly organized attack on the healthcare industry, insurance industry and each individual patient they serve. Apparently, the law is so flagrantly abusive that the congress, executive branch and their select cronies do not have to abide by it as do the taxpaying citizens who pay your salary and those of congress. This is clearly a law that people must not follow and must be repealed.

As a family physician, I cannot, in good conscience, abide by PPACA Obamacare and will not accept ANY of its compliant plans in my office. As a patient, I will not purchase any of these bloated expensive plans through states exchanges. As a taxpayer, I am shocked and appalled at your public lies repeated again and again to change the fact that PPACA Obamacare law is destructive to our nation and its citizens. When former president Nixon was caught in a lie, he had enough respect for the office and the people he served, and resigned. I demand that you advocate for its immediate repeal or step down as President, will all due respect to your office.

Best wishes for good health

  1. With all due respect to people out there who are just waking up…he and his friends have been stabbing us in the back for the last 5 years…judge a tree by it’s fruits! They are not incompetent. They are achieving what they set out to do. We need to repent, turn to God.

  2. The company that won the main contract to write
    the software code for Obamacare is a Canadian
    firm called CGI Group. Their headquarters is out
    of Montreal, Quebec. According to the company’s
    own announcement, it secured a contract in late
    2011 worth a total of $55.7 million. Due to
    concerns, it jumped to $93.7 million and then to $292 million.

    Reports have ranged widely over how much money
    has ultimately been spent on the flawed site, via
    CGI and other contractors. Reuters reported on
    Thursday, October 17, 2013, that the potential
    total value for CGI’s work has tripled, to nearly
    $292 million, and that does not include the work
    that is required to fix the problems.

    Second in command is Quality Software Services.
    They are another contractor heavily involved in
    the software development code and launch. Quality
    Software Services, Inc. headquarters is out of New Delhi, India.

    Yes, the two main software company headquarters,
    which wrote the software code for Obamacare, are
    not even from America. HEADQUARTERS NOT IN
    AMERICA, and Obama and his administration keep
    trying to convince us that they are doing
    everything in their power to put Americans back to work! HOG WASH!!

    OBAMA TURNS DOWN IBM OFFER TO CUT MEDICARE FRAUD BY $900 BILLION DOLLARS!

    In February 2011, IBM Chairman and CEO, Samuel
    Palmisano, offered the Obama administration a
    free software program that would have cut
    Medicare and Medicaid fraud by almost a trillion
    dollars, but he was turned down – twice.

    The number one software company in the world and
    American, was going to give a good percentage of
    the Obamacare software to the Federal government
    free and Obama turned it down AND TURNED IT DOWN TWICE.

    Now, I hope you are beginning to understand the
    attitude, incompetence, lack of vision, and
    unintelligent knowledge of the White House.

      From Constitution to Emergency Rule
      The establishment of the U.S. Constitution in 1789 and its Bill of Rights in 1791 was a fundamental innovation in jurisprudence. It introduced the first constitutional republic, with a written constitution that superseded the Common Law that preceded it, while incorporating that part of the Common Law not in conflict with it, and provided that all subsequent statutory law and official acts must be based on its provisions and not in conflict with it. Any statute or official act not so based, or in such conflict with it, was to be considered unconstitutional, and null and void from inception.

      Unfortunately, despite the nominal commitment to compliance with the Constitution, legislators and officials have failed to comply with it in many instances. Most of these instances were justified as necessary to deal with perceived crises, especially war and depression. Some of these instances include the Dick Act of 1903 and the Federal Reserve Act of 1913. But perhaps the most important was the Emergency Banking Act of March 9, 1933, and particularly its amendment to the Trading with the Enemy Act of October 6, 1917, and its ratification of such executive orders as the Proclamation 2040 by President Roosevelt issued on March 6, 1933, sometimes called the Emergency and War Powers order. This act, codified as 12 USC 95(b), effectively declared the Constitution suspended and conferred dictatorial powers on the President, a situation which continues to this day.

      Following this there was a long train of unconstitutional legislation and executive orders, made possible by intimidation of the federal courts. Although some reference to provisions of the Constitution was made to justify them, especially an expanded interpretation of “interstate commerce”, it is argued [by some] that what was really done was suspension of the Constitution as the “Supreme Law of the Land” and the extension of the “Law of the Sea” over the land, making all federal courts admiralty courts, under the executive authority of the President. The “Law of the Sea” is a branch of Common Law under which the President and admiralty courts exercise essentially dictatorial powers, akin to martial law.

      Under this assumed authority, the U.S. Congress, the President, and the federal courts have extended their powers and jurisdiction far beyond the limits imposed on them under the Constitution, in violation of the 10th Amendment.

      Senate Report 93-549, written in 1973, said “Since March 9, 1933, the United States has been in a state of declared national emergency.” It goes on to say:

      “A majority of the people of the United States have lived all their lives under emergency rule. For 40 years, freedoms and governmental procedures guaranteed by the constitution have, in varying degrees, been abridged by laws brought into force by states of National emergency. In the United States, actions taken by government in times of great crisis have … in important ways shaped the present phenomenon of a permanent state of National emergency.”…

      “These proclamations give force to 470 provisions of federal law. These hundreds of statutes delegate to the President extraordinary powers, ordinarily exercised by Congress, which affect the lives of American citizens in a host of all-encompassing manners. This vast range of powers, taken together, confer enough authority to rule this country without reference to normal constitutional process.

      “Under the powers delegated by these statutes, the President may: seize property; organize and control the means of production; seize commodities; assign military forces abroad; institute martial law; seize and control all transportation and communication; regulate the operation of private enterprise; restrict travel; and, in a plethora of particular ways, control the lives of all American citizens.”

      The problem, of course, is that the Constitution does not provide for its own suspension, under some Rule of Necessity, only for temporary suspension of the right of habeas corpus, nor does Congress have such emergency and war powers or the power to delegate them to the President. Such a doctrine of “emergency rule” is a legalistic façade, perhaps providing a defense against summary judgement by a lawful court, but not providing true legal authority. The Constitution is not just the Supreme Law of the Land, but of all operations of the institutions it establishes, as agents of the People, including those at sea and those involving the laws of nations, forbidding them to exercise any powers not specifically delegated to them, in any field of action.

      A difficulty for this regime is that the vast majority of people in and out of government are unaware of such emergency rule. As far as they are concerned, the Constitution is still in full force and effect. Many of them continue to take an oath to “preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” Some of them are aware of their role as militiamen, as defenders of the State and its Constitution, with a duty to not only obey the Constitution and constitutional laws, but to do what they can to enforce them as well, singly or in concert with one another.

      Two Bodies of Jurisprudence
      What we have, then, is two bodies of jurisprudence: one based on the Constitution, the other not based on it, and, indeed, in fundamental conflict with it. Unfortunately, the full force of de facto government acts to enforce this second body of jurisprudence, and this puts it in fundamental conflict with the Militia and its duty to defend the Constitution and enforce it and its laws.

      Since the statutes and official acts not based on the Constitution are null and void from inception, and in conflict with the real law, which is based on the Constitution, we may call this body of jurisprudence antilaw. It is sometimes referred to by the euphemism “public policy”.

      Almost any effort to enforce such antilaw infringes on the civil rights of persons, and is therefore itself a crime, specifically, violation of 18 USC 241, Conspiracy Against Rights, or 242, Deprivation of Rights Under Color of Law. These statutes are arguably constitutional, under the authority of the 14th amendment, therefore citizens have the duty, as militiamen, to enforce it against officials who attempt to enforce antilaw, to arrest them and bring them before a grand jury.

      What we have, therefore, is the potential for conflict between two groups of Americans, each enforcing what they consider to be the law against the other, each trying to arrest the other, with armed force if necessary. The forces of de facto government may, for the most part, believe they are in the right. Most of them are just doing their jobs, following the orders of the people who pay their salaries, and many people, not knowing any better, think they are indeed the lawful government. They are better organized, funded, and equipped. On the other side are a growing number of citizens who are becoming aware of the situation and their duties as militiamen, and while they are not yet as well organized, they are becoming more numerous and better organized, and they are even gaining support from within this de facto government.

      Corruption and the Crisis of Legitimacy
      This dysfunctional situation is exacerbated by pervasive corruption that infects almost every level and agency of government and institution of society. This has brought compromise of the integrity of those institutions, and the loss of their ability to meet the needs of the people. Computerized elections are often rigged. Many judges are compromised or intimidated. It is not uncommon for people to take a case before a federal judge, asking him to enforce the Constitution, and have him refuse to rule, saying “If I ruled on this, I would be dead before morning.” Take a case of high- level official misconduct to law enforcement authorities and they refuse to consider it. Investigating and exposing such corruption and the abuses it brings all too often results in the harassment, persecution, or even the death of the investigator and his witnesses, and the confiscation or destruction of their evidence.

      This crisis of legitimacy and corruption is causing severe conflicts within government as well, between factions that extend across institutions and align themselves with citizen activists. This conflict has become a kind of low-level civil war, in which there is real violence and the loss of lives.

      Antilaw as Dyslaw
      Antilaw might prevail if it met the needs of the people, eventually acquiring a kind of legitimacy, but it does not. It is fundamentally dysfunctional, as well as illegitimate, and therefore dyslaw. As such, it is doomed, and must eventually give way to a return to the Rule of Law under the Constitution. This will be a difficult transition to manage gracefully. Once the dominoes start falling, it may be difficult to avoid a sudden collapse that will bring chaos and economic upheaval.

      The first shot across the bow of antilaw from the Supreme Court may have just been fired, in the case of U.S. v. Lopez, which, for the first time since 1936, struck down a federal criminal statute based on the interstate commerce clause.
