SCOTUS upholds the individual mandate as a tax. This signals that there is no limit to the power of the federal government, thus ending the republic as it has been since the inception.
With this decision, congress can now mandate that NOT engaging in commerce is engaging in commerce, thus falling under the commerce clause of the Constitution. The government may now force the American people to buy ANYTHING it wants to. Cars, guns, birth control, rubber chickens, whatever they want.
It is over. It can only get bigger from here, and it WILL. Do not doubt for a SECOND that the fedgov won't take advantage of this new power.
Only revolution can solve the problems now, but only ONCE in history has revolution ever ended up granting the people more freedom. That was the American Revolution. Never before or since has liberty gained ground.
It is over. I weep for the future.
