A Legal Form of Secession?


It appears that President Obama and President Lincoln have at least one thing in common.
They both provoked the state of South Carolina to take drastic measures in curbing the takeover of the states writes by the Federal government.
Whether or not this is a futile effort is yet to be seen. But it clearly sounds off as did the first shots fired at fort Sumter in 1861.
The people of South Carolina still stand tall even though beaten in the (as some remember it) war of Northern Aggression they will not totally surrender to the over extending power of the Federal Government using the 10th Amendment to the Constitution for shot.
This time instead of gun powder they have fired a shot across the bow of the Battleship ObamaCare by legislation.
In the State House the House Representatives are doing what they can to preserve the freedom of its citizens by amending a bill that was passed into state law back in 1976 the “South Carolina Freedom of Health Care Protection Act” by adding an amendment to that law.

“A bill to amend the Code of Laws of South Carolina, 1976, so as to enact the ‘South Carolina Freedom of Health Care Protection Act’ by adding Article 21 to Chapter 71, Title 38 so as to render null and void certain unconstitutional laws enacted by the Congress of the United States taking control over the health insurance industry and mandating that individuals purchase health insurance under threat of penalty; to prohibit certain individuals from enforcing or attempting to enforce such unconstitutional laws; and to establish criminal penalties and civil liability for violating this article.”

In April of this year the House passed an amendment by nearly a 2 to 1 margin 65 yea to 34 Nay that would nulify ObamaCare in South Carolina and is now heading for the Republican controlled State Senate, it is expected to pass. The Republican Governor Nikki Haley is also expected to sign the bill into state law.
As reported in the Godfather Politics:
“ In effect, H3101 prohibits any and all agents, officials or employees of the state of South Carolina from implementing any provision that is part of Obamacare.  It also allows for the issuing of a state tax deduction equal to the tax penalty enacted by the IRS and makes the state exchanges illegal.  They are also considering two additional provisions that would make the Medicare expansion illegal and the suspension of state insurance licenses of any insurer that received federal subsidies through Obamacare”.

Whether or not this will hold up against the Progressive controlled federal Government will most probably be decided in court. One can only pray.
