Democrat/Socialist Declares For Tyranny

San Francisco Bay area Democrat/Socialist Congressman Pete Stark, responding to a constituent’s question about the Constitutional basis for Obamacare, reportedly said that the Federal government has the power to do anything it desires.  This obliterates the Bill of Rights and its protections of individuals from arbitrary exercise of Federal power.

As noted in a recent post on this website, Stark’s naked appetite for tyranny is inherent in liberal-progressivism.
