WinNovember

Most people who care deeply about our nation, believe that this will be one of the most important elections in history.  If we are to have any chance of reversing the dangerous path President Obama has set for America, we must accomplish three things this November.

Change for the Worse

Candidate Barack Obama back in 2008 said he wanted to be a “transformative President” – that he wanted to fundamentally change America.  His campaign theme was “change we can believe in.”

What I never saw coming, (and virtually no one else did either) was that the Chief Justice, John Roberts, usually a reliable conservative vote on the Court, would be the deciding vote, and would decide to allow Obamacare to stand. 

Here’s what I think happened.  (And as I’ve just acknowledged that I got predicting the decision wrong, I could very well have this wrong too.)  But here goes anyway.
