News that the Supreme Court upheld the national healthcare mandate — dubbed Obamacare — has angered some, delighted others and left a few country artists worried about the future of the United States. Charlie Daniels was quick to speak his mind on Twitter Thursday morning.

“Well here it is people,the beginning of judicial legislation, No American right is safe now. Obama has just become a king,” he tweeted, drawing mixed reactions from his followers.

The famous singer and fiddler often gets political on Twitter. Just yesterday, he wrote, “Holder [U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder] is like a little boy hiding cigarettes from his mother. Obama is like his big brother trying to keep momma out of the smoking room.”

James Otto also tweeted about the historic decision, asking his fans what they though of the 5-4 ruling. Most of his followers who commented were opposed to the verdict.
