Supreme Court Decision: We Warned Against Roberts in 2005

Boulder, CO – The America First Party is not surprised by Justice John
Roberts’ decision in the Obamacare lawsuits. After all, the Party warned
Americans about how dangerous Roberts was way back in 2005 when President
Bush nominated him for the position. With this latest disastrous betrayal of
the Constitution by Justice Roberts, the Bush II Presidency has once again
shown itself to be the gift that just keeps on giving.

Roberts had a track record of trampling on property rights, the rights of
innocent and helpless babies, and basic principles of fairness and justice
before he ascended to the High Court. In two press releases, the AFP called
the public’s attention in 2005 to his penchant for stealing private property
by government force, countenancing abortion which takes an innocent life,
confiscating private funds to pay for unconstitutional government programs,
and ripping off torture victims — including American war veterans — of
their monetary awards for damages against the government of Iraq.

Former National Chairman Dan Charles said at the time: “President Bush had
promised the American people that he would nominate a constitutionalist
Supreme Court Justice in the mold of Justices Scalia or Thomas. Many
conservatives held their noses and voted for the President only because they
believed that promise. When he nominated Judge Roberts to replace retiring
Justice Sandra Day O’Connor, President Bush broke that promise.”

Now in this, one of the most devastating strikes against Constitutional
liberties in the last half century, Roberts provides the crucial vote to
uphold the so-called “health care mandate” under the taxing powers of the
Federal Government. The notion, that a penalty is really just a tax, is
ludicrous on its face, but now opens a pandora’s box of regulations and
prohibitions and mandates masquerading as new “taxes.”

National Secretary John Pittman Hey stated: “There is no limit, under
Roberts’ reasoning, to the vexatious rules and onerous mandates that the
Federal Government can squeeze past the Constitution. Any regulation, no
matter how far afield from proper constitutional governance, no matter how
great an insult to the sharp limits on federal power enshrined in the
Constitution, will now be fair game.”

Mr. Hey concluded: “Justice Roberts’ violation of his oath to uphold the
Constitution is proof once again that Republicans cannot be counted on to
nominate qualified, decent, Constitutionalists to the High Court. This
betrayal tears away the last excuse that Republican hacks have always used
to coerce patriots into pulling the lever for the Republican nominee. The
bitter lesson learned is this: keep voting for Republicans, and expect to
continue to have your rights stripped away by their judges.”
