Bryan Fischer, director of issues analysis at the American Family Association, last seen arguing for the explusion of all Muslims from the U.S. military, the recriminalization of homosexuality, and the stoning to death of a killer whale at Sea World, posted this at his AFA blog this morning, in response to the health care vote (emphasis added):

... The last remedy left -- other than bloodshed -- is the 10th Amendment, which reserves to the states any power not delegated to the federal government. The central government is exercising a power that it does not have, and can only exercise by usurping that power from the states.

State governments can legitimately and constitutionally decide not to cooperate with the central government on the legal ground that Congress has transgressed the boundaries marked out in our founding document. The central government is trespassing on the sovereign territory of the states, and the states have every right to throw them off their property.

Trespassers can be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Squatters can be evicted. If they won't leave, they can be tossed. And in the worst case scenario, if they won't surrender peacefully, they can be shot....


Kyle at Right Wing Watch adds:

Do I need to point out that just last week, Fischer was featured on the Family Research Council's anti-health care reform webcast along with Rep. Tom Price, (R-GA), Rep. Mike Pence (R-IN), and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN)?

Also there, as noted at the link, was Senator David Vitter.

Expect a denunciation by these members of Congress of Fischer's endorsement of armed insurrection against the government (hey, but only as a last resort!) in 5, 4, 3, ... um, never.
