Pundits are working overtime explaining how Roberts cleverly cut the baby in two, and how his decision will affect other cases going forward. We've reached a point of government interventionism that allows government to do what it thinks it can get by with politically, and the court is impotent in the face of the interventionism -- Roberts said it himself. Roberts said the court's duty is not to save the public from bad political choices, so the Chief Justice is basically saying that any intervention can be justified, if you look hard enough for the justification, so you have to elect better politicians if you are unhappy with congress and the President.
The problem is not so much with the representatives as it is with the system, and the system is not up for change by an election. The bureacracy and the programs are firmly in place in our statist system, and dealing with the mandate is dealing with a symptomatic problem with symptomatic solutions, not with fundamental problems and fundamental solutions. The system has to be changed and at this point it will require another revolution. Not a violent revolution, but a revolution of honest dissent, peaceful disobedience and nullification through individual state actions regarding rights violating interventions by federal government. The present statist system has to be rejected, and the consent for interventionist governments to govern must be removed. Nothing short of this revolution will work.
