Prediction Markets on ObamaCare Decision

Intrade – an on-line prediction market – has ObamaCare’s individual mandate being ruled unconstitutional at 72.2% (though this is down 3.7% today).

I spent part of the evening getting “motivated” (as they say in the Army) for a pro-liberty outcome tomorrow by watching part of the PBS series “Liberty” with my kids.  So inspiring to see our forefathers defeating the British under Burgoyne at Bennington and Saratoga.  I’ll be honest – we just happened to be at this place in the series, so it wasn’t on purpose that we were thinking about these great turning points in our history. 

Hopefully tomorrow will be another great day in American history for the cause of liberty.  But like Washington (who had to wait for news of the battles like us tonight), I worry that the odds are long and the strongest forces are arrayed against that cause.  However, in these times that try our own souls, maybe tomorrow – like that day at Saratoga – will be a turning point in the fight for freedom.  No matter how it shakes out, we – like the Americans in 1777 – still have a long way to go to rescue our liberties.  I can’t wait for 10 am.
