  1. On the government teat? That's laughable. Hopefully if you stick around you can learn to do better.The key here is that the Constitution clearly defines National Defense as an appropriate exercize of Federal authority. I am but one participant in that. And at that, I only do it part time. If you had bothered to do a little checking you'd find that I am a National Guardsman, so except for periods of mobilization, one weekend a month, two weeks each year and the occasional TDY, I'm a corporate working stiff like millions of others.Here's my challenge to you: Show me where the Constitution allows the Federal government any authority with regard to Health Insurance (this isn't about healthcare–the labor of medical professionals and patients–it's about insurance policies and premiums) and what the extent of that authority, if any, is. For bonus points, you can also tell me where the Constitution allows the Federal government to make anyone, anywhere, buy anything, insurance policies or otherwise.
