I don't know why anyone is surprised by this

Back during the primaries for the 2008 Presidential election, I tried to point out to anyone who would listen, a very frightening comment by then candidate Obama.

The supposed constitutional scholar stated at one point that he believed the Constitution to be a fundamentally flawed document because it did not contain entitlement language. This, I stated, showed a fundamentally flawed understanding of what the Constitution is -- it is a firewall between the citizens of this country and the federal government. It is there to keep the government out of our private lives, to allow us to worship and speak freely, be safe from warrantless search and seizures, not be forced to incriminate ourselves in a court of law, and so on.

Now we have the President forcing religous groups and their organizations to provide abortions and other services that go against the doctrines of their faith. President Obama went as far as to have the head of HHS re-classify what a religous organization actually is. This is some Orwellian sh*t right here!

And after a number of Catholic groups, who've been sleeping on the clock for the last three years, finally started complaining, the administration issued a convoluted compromise that actually makes the situation worse.

In her CPAC speech, Ann Coulter correctly points out that the administration is laying the groundwork to use insurance to impose their ideas of how we should live upon us. By forcing us to buy insurance, via ObamaCare, and then forcing insurance companies to cover the cost of pretty much everything in life, they can control what we eat, how we live, and every other aspect of our lives.

This President has been pissing on the Constitution from the day he took office. A shadow government of czars, wars declared on whim, forced buyouts of banks and private businesses, open vendettas against media outlets, stealth indoctrination of schoolchildren, race baiting, class warfare, and now violation of the First Amendment vis a vis religous freedom.

Despite whoever the Republicans put up for election in November, voters must look at what the current occupant of the White House is doing to this country. It is scary and certainly shouldn't come as a surprise if you've been paying any attention at all.
