Obama’s edict that insurance companies must provide free sterilizations, contraceptives, and abortifacients to employees of religious organizations violates the First Amendment right to freedom of conscience and the property rights of insurance companies.
“To individual American Catholics, and those who share the Catholic religious and moral conviction that sterilization, artificial contraception and abortion are wrong, Obama said: I am ordering you to buy a health insurance plan that violates the teachings of your faith and your conscience. … This is exactly as if Obama were to say to grocery stores: You must provide milk, meat, and bread to your customers free of charge.”—Terence P. Jeffreys
Jeffreys is right; Obama’s edict is an act of tyranny. It is not about birth control; it’s about usurping the Constitution and violating Americans rights of conscience. Obama does not have the Constitutional authority to make and enforce such edicts. He is tearing the Constitution to shreds and assuming the powers of a dictator.
Voters have the power to stop his fanaticism and tyranny this November; and if they don’t, they will be held responsible as were the German people for Hitler. Through propaganda, Hitler won over their hearts and minds, and they looked to him as their messiah.
“Hitler was an opportunist—he was a man possessed and driven by a fanaticism that saw his destiny as identical to Germany’s. The propaganda machine that Hitler adopted, however, was perhaps the most important device at his disposal. With it he was able to successfully undermine his opponent’s will to resist.”
