In time, U.S. District Judge Roger Vinson of the Northern District of Florida will some day be seen as a national hero. In the clearest manner, he has combated an unbridled attempt to wreak havoc on our system of government despite limits set by the Founding Fathers to allow our freedom to flourish.

Too often, the Constitution is diminished, deemed out of fashion or, in the case of Obamacare, redefined to suit progressive intentions. This callous and fraudulent erosion has been dissected for what it is. Judge Vinson’s opinion could have been put forth by Madison, Hamilton or any number of framers who understood the limits on government and the risks to our sovereignty for those who abuse it.

This is ultimately not about health care. This was merely the device by which our freedoms are destroyed. Judge Vinson understands this, as do the majority of Americans who were appalled at the brazenness of Obamacare. Our three-branch system has worked - the abuses by the executive and legislative branches have been corrected by the judiciary. Judge Vinson’s opinion will form the background for the ultimate nail in the coffin when Obamacare reaches the Supreme Court.
