“It Passed The House Of Representatives. It Passed The Senate. The Supreme Court Ruled It Constitutional…It’s The Law Of The Land. It’s Here To Stay.” – Barack Obama
“ObamaCare Is The Law Of The Land, It Has Been For Four Years…Why Don’t They Get A Life And Figure Out Something Else They’d Like To Mess With?” – Harry Reid
The above quotes are just two of possibly dozens in which Obamacare is referred to as “the law of the land.” The Left loves to latch on to what are generally called “talking points.” Talking points are key words or phrases that Democrats and Liberals use to force the public to see things through a certain lens. If Liberals say that Obamacare is the “law of the land” enough times, the public will eventually buy that as the truth.
Talking points are all that Liberals have. They cannot argue in real time; it confuses them, so they throw out these pre-rendered phrases and that’s that. But sometimes the talking points can be taken and used against them. The Left loves to say that Obamacare is the law of the land, meaning it must not be changed, forever, in perpetuity, until the end of time. However, there are numerous laws and rules that the Left seems to want to change. If those are also the “laws of the land,” why do they think they can be altered?
For example, the Left wants desperately to change the laws of marriage. Let’s forget that the only reason they want those laws changed is to make them appear compassionate and forward thinking, thereby getting them votes. Regardless of their motives, Liberals constantly advocate for changes to the marriage laws of the United States, changes that would fold same-sex marriage into the formal definition of a union. Is marriage not the law of the land? Am I missing something?
No, I’m not missing anything. The “law of the land” concept only applies to laws that the Left doesn’t like. Anything else is up for grabs. That being the case, their argument regarding Obamacare is rendered utterly impotent.
Here’s something that may not be law, but is well understood: Liberals have no foundation for any single one of their arguments. They live inside of a continuum, where everything is fluid and constantly changing. Unfortunately for them, this makes every one of their arguments easily deconstructed, which is why they don’t ever truly argue a point. Liberals stick to talking points because if they were to argue, they would be totally and shamefully slammed into the ground.
Obamacare may be the “law of the land,” but that doesn’t mean it’s any good.
