  • Where Do You Stand On Tyranny?

    To the Editor:

    I find it very interesting that our imperial president has taken it upon himself to again shred the Constitution and upgrade his executive powers.

    There is no question that the infamous Affordable Care Act aka, Obamacare is a questionable law.  Yes; it was ruled constitutional by the Supreme Court; but it was ruled a tax – and there lies another  question for another time.

    To the Editor:

    To the Editor:
