ran 4.1 miles
The Supreme Court is in the middle of one of the biggest arguments in modern American history. ObamaCare is to be deemed constitutional or unconstitutional and, either way, the decision will play a major role in the rest of our lives and those lives of generations to come.

If the law passes with no changes made to it then it will be one of the last breaths of our Constitution.  Unlike most Supreme Court cases, in which Justices have preceding cases to help guide their decisions, this case is one of a scope and magnitude that America has never been forced to examine.

This case is going to be the precedent for all future cases involving the federal government attempting to rewrite the United States Constitution and to further impede on our freedoms.  This is the question:

"If the federal government can mandate health coverage on every single American then what is going to happen in the future if they try to force you to buy a certain type of car, or to eat certain types of food, or to work certain kinds of jobs, or to watch certain types of television programs, or to only view certain types of news?"

This ObamaCare verdict is going to be the precedent for all of these important future issues that may surface from the bottom of bad ideas, where they should remain buried and unobtainable.  And if it is ruled constitutional then the government will have succeeded in disregarding our original Constitution and replacing it with a new one that will be made up as we go along.

Fortunately, there are bits and pieces of this law that can be found unconstitutional, while other parts may be found constitutional.  The reason this is fortunate is because ObamaCare immediately loses its source of strength by taking out mere bits and pieces of it.  Look at it as the gears, cogs, and springs in the middle of an extremely elaborate watch.  The watch serves its purpose as long as every single piece is doing its job.  But if you take one little spring or gear out the entire watch ceases to work.  

One of the gears of ObamaCare is the mandate and if that piece gets removed then this watch can be thrown away.  If it stays then our government, as a matter of precedent based on the Supreme Court's decision, will have the ability to mandate anything they want in the future.

311.8 miles to go.

Here is what happened one year ago on Day210
