(NaturalNews) The 11th circuit appeals court ruled today that Obama's health care mandate -- which forced Americans to purchase an insurance product that many did not want or need -- was unconstitutional and that Congress exceeded its constitutional authority in passing such a law. The rest of the health care reform law was not struck down, however, and indications are that the final legality of the so-called "individual mandate" will be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court.

The federal government's requirement that private citizens purchase products and services from a particular industry is, on its face, blatantly unconstitutional. If this mandate holds, the federal government could invoke the same power to require all Americans to purchase an automobile from General Motors, for example, as part of an auto industry bailout mandate. Or the feds could require all parents to purchase vaccines for their children, citing public health concerns. In fact, there is no limit to the things the federal government could require Americans to purchase, including new homes to "boost the economy." (Buy a home or go to jail!)

A malicious misinterpretation of the Commerce Clause

The Commerce Clause of the U.S. Constitution limits the power of the federal government to regulate private purchasing decisions, but the government has consistently and maliciously misinterpreted this clause to mean is has absolute power over all commerce taking place across the entire nation. This is what led the federal government to order one farmer to destroy all his wheat crops, claiming that his growing of wheat "interfered with interstate commerce" even though he was only feeding that wheat to his own chickens. Wickard vs. Filburn (http://www.naturalnews.com/030799_food_freed...).

The pattern we're witnessing over the last couple of decades is that the federal government routinely seeks to expand its own power and authority, taking over huge sectors of what used to be a private economy (lenders and banks, for example). It then seeks to direct consumer behavior in a command economy dictatorship that forces people to financially support a system of failed health care that doesn't even work to prevent disease or make people healthier.

Since Obama pushed for his health care reform, the U.S. economy has imploded in record debt, huge job losses, a ratings downgrade of its financial solvency, and an evacuation of companies from the USA to open offices in other countries. Obamacare has devastated small businesses and American workers, increased the cost of health care and made it nearly impossible for U.S. companies to compete in the global marketplace. And yet it's not even the worst part of what is increasingly becoming a failed Presidency that has left the country in far worse shape than it was when Obama was sworn into office.

As the job losses mount, the national debt explodes, and the health care crises grows even worse, people are finally starting to wake up and realize that Big Government is the PROBLEM in America, not the answer. The real answer to affordable healthcare is to get the government out of the business of health care, shutter the FDA, legalize free speech for nutritional supplements and end the state medical board tyrannies that criminalize the practicing of alternative and holistic medicine. Only the freedom to heal can reverse America's downward spiral of disease and debt, and this means ending the FDA, shutting down the DEA, radically cutting the size of government and restoring liberty to our farmers, herbalists, chiropractors and consumers.

Obamacare is a complete disaster. HOPE, it seems did not result in positive CHANGE. Instead, everything is now worse. Maybe it's time to try something different than merely expanding the size and power of a government that openly engages in acts of terrorism against its own people (http://www.naturalnews.com/033220_Rawesome_F...).

Maybe it's time to elect a champion of limited government who understands the principles of freedom... someone like Ron Paul, for example.

In late 2013, Adams launched the Natural News Forensic Food Lab, where he conducts atomic spectroscopy research into food contaminants using high-end ICP-MS instrumentation. With this research, Adams has made numerous food safety breakthroughs such as revealing rice protein products imported from Asia to be contaminated with toxic heavy metals like lead, cadmium and tungsten. Adams was the first food science researcher to document high levels of tungsten in superfoods. He also discovered over 11 ppm lead in imported mangosteen powder, and led an industry-wide voluntary agreement to limit heavy metals in rice protein products to low levels by July 1, 2015.

In addition to his lab work, Adams is also the (non-paid) executive director of the non-profit Consumer Wellness Center (CWC), an organization that redirects 100% of its donations receipts to grant programs that teach children and women how to grow their own food or vastly improve their nutrition.
