Rand Paul: Just Because SCOTUS Says It's Constitutional, 'Doesn't Make It So'

Apparently, someone was asleep during his US Government class:

"Just because a couple people on the Supreme Court declare something to be 'constitutional' does not make it so. The whole thing remains unconstitutional. While the court may have erroneously come to the conclusion that the law is allowable, it certainly does nothing to make this mandate or government takeover of our health care right," Sen. Paul said.

"Obamacare is wrong for Americans. It will destroy our health care system. This now means we fight every hour, every day until November to elect a new President and a new Senate to repeal Obamacare," he continued.

No, actually, you bloody idjit, if the majority of the Supreme Court has ruled it's constitutional, by definition, IT'S CONSTITUTIONAL.

Because if you really want to go down this path, you America-hating, traitorous punk, then we can decide right now that Citizens United is unconstitutional and we can ignore it.

We can declare President Al Gore can and should arrest George W. Bush for breaking and entering into the White House.

Hell, we can demand that corporations are no longer people, since that's an incredibly unpopular concept.

Seriously, Senator Paul, if you can't understand this basic tenet of how government works, then you are advocating for anarchy. Just accept gracefully that you were on the wrong side of this one, and move on.
