Op-ed:
Obama vs. the Constitution and Catholic Church
By: Diane Sori

The most important document on which the founding of this Republic (and yes we are a Republic NOT a democracy) is based upon is the Constitution.  Our Constitution is the highest law in our land, the law ‘We the People’ and our elected officials are supposed to live by, honor, and respect.  The Constitution describes how our government works, what it can and can’t do, how it must protect the rights of every American, and how it must secure and ensure our nation’s survival for countless years to come.
  
Our Founding Fathers created this document to put constraints on the government and to give more power to ‘We the People’ than was ever granted to any citizenry that came before.  The Constitution assures us the right to “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” above all else, gives us the freedom to practice religion as we see fit, and protects us from enemies both foreign and domestic. 
 
Yet the Constitution, no matter if we honor or if we defame it is the one thing all Americans have in common.

Now as we get nearer to the November election one stark difference between the two candidates becomes more and more apparent...Mitt Romney upholds and honors both the Constitution and religious freedoms of our great land, while Barack Hussein Obama defames both every chance he gets, especially with his implementation of the monstrosity known as ObamaCare.  

With the Supreme Court getting ready to rule in a few weeks on the constitutionality of ObamaCare, Barack Obama’s so-called signature piece of legislation, it’s obvious to anyone who understands the law that this abomination violates the Commerce Clause (Congress has the right ‘to regulate Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian Tribes), the 9th Amendment (addresses rights of the people that are not specifically enumerated in the Constitution), and the 10th Amendment of the Constitution (which states the Constitution's principle of federalism by providing that powers not granted to the federal government nor prohibited to the States by the Constitution are reserved to the States or the people).  

By strong-arm forcing this bill through Congress, Obama has wantonly assumed federal powers not granted him by the Constitution.  Plus, the waivers and opt-outs he so happily granted to ‘certain’ individuals and groups violates the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th amendment, which prohibits state and local governments from depriving persons of life, liberty, or property without certain steps being taken to ensure fairness to all.   This Clause makes the Bill of Rights applicable to the states, as well as to recognize substantive and procedural rights, yet Obama nor ObamaCare recognizes either.

And while many individuals, organizations and states do get to opt out of ObamaCare, the Catholic Church is unable to.  In ObamaCare’s HHS Mandate, Church institution employers must offer, and employees must buy, insurance plans that have policies that go against the very teachings of the Church, paramount of which is that the plans must contain both contraceptive coverage and morning after pill coverage, which devout followers of doctrine believe to be abortion.  

Yet Barrack Hussein Obama cares neither for the rule of law nor for the doctrines and tenets of the faith he professes to belong to.  Barack Hussein Obama makes a mockery of our Constitution every chance he gets (ObamaCare is but one example), and while other presidents have at times blurred the meaning of certain parts of that document, no other president in our nation’s history has so blatantly defamed and dishonored our country’s lifeblood.

It’s time for Barack Hussein Obama to vacate the highest office is in our nation and ‘We the People’ with the Constitution as our banner need to make sure he does.
