Respect the voice of the people

If the Senate or the Judiciary or the chief executive would respect and honor the "voice of the people," the United States House of Representatives, ObamaCare would be a historical footnote, like new Coke.

United States citizens residing in each American state should elect local and state government representatives who will protect citizens of each state from federal legislation that infringes upon their state and individual rights and privileges.

The buck stops there, and similarly in the House of Representatives. This is the public opinion of citizens that the Senate, the Judiciary, and the chief executive ignore.

The only other public opinion that affects American citizens as significantly as that provided by "the people’s voice" is that provided by a glorified media extravaganza.

The answer is simple for each American citizen in support of American liberty — vote for representatives with a keen sense for civil service, who will honor the oath of office they must make to the citizens they represent.

Seeking public office should be distinguished from seeking authority that an office-holder will be entrusted.

The public opinion and public interests of American citizens is trivialized and ignored through what has become "normal, or common" government operations, particularly, governing based upon media-sourced public opinion.

Nullification of ObamaCare by state assemblies would be a redemptive act of salvation for American public opinion and for oath takers and office-holders who wish to gain respect for their service to the citizens they represent.
