God’s Speed, Mr. Carvin

Written By: William F. B. O'Reilly - Mar• 25•12

Attended a news conference for a client today who will be running for congress this year against 24-year incumbent Nita Lowey (D-NY-17). (Remember when longevity in office was a good thing?)  The candidate, Joe Carvin (R), was endorsed at the event by another prospective candidate for the seat, who ended his endorsement remarks with the words “God speed, Mr. Carvin.”

It’s funny, those were the exact words I had in my head this morning when reading this column by George Will.  Mr. Will’s piece is about the Supreme Court argument beginning this week against Obamacare. The lead attorney arguing the case? Michael Carvin, Joe’s younger brother. (Impressive family, those Carvins.)

I can’t remember a more important case before the Court in my lifetime. This will determine just how much the federal government can force individual Americans to do. If it is decided that the feds can force us to sign contracts and purchase products against our will, then it can make us do virtually anything. I don’t know about you, but that’s not the America I wish to live in going forward.  

Which brings me back to the sentiment from this morning. God speed, Mr. Carvin. And in more contemporary parlance, kick some … in there. Your countrymen are depending on you.
