I have always advocated that ObamaCare® is essentially slavery.
Consider this definition of slavery by Fredrick Douglass:
“What is freedom? It is the right to choose one’s own employment. Certainly it means that, if it means anything; and when any[one] undertakes to decide for any man when he shall work, where he shall work, at what shall he work, and for what he shall work, he or they practically reduce him to slavery.”
Government impress of service is listed as a grievance in the Declaration of Independence:
“He has constrained our fellow Citizens taken Captive on the high Seas to bear Arms against their Country, to become the executioners of their friends and Brethren, or to fall themselves by their Hands .”
According to Congressman Pete Stark, the Constitution does not restrain the Federal Government from doing anything.
Those that believe that the service of another is their due right must be rebuked with the same disdain we hold for those former advocates of the age-old practice of slave-trade and ownership.
“No man can put a chain about the ankle of his fellow man without at last finding the other end fastened about his own neck.”
