The disaster of Obamacare could prove minor compared to some of President Obama’s other goals. We could lose much of our religious freedom, free speech, free press and more if his other efforts succeed.
Mr. Obama might say that if you like your constitutional rights, you can keep them. His actions, though, reveal a plan to lock in his power by reducing opponents’ rights and restricting their ability to thwart his will. The president wants his agenda to be safely beyond the reach of the people’s constitutional rights. Then we could be controlled permanently by liberal elites.
Mr. Obama’s shows his intent in the pending Supreme Court case of Sebelius v. Hobby Lobby. This case involves more than Obamacare’s contraceptive mandate; it’s being used as a vehicle to limit other First Amendment rights in addition to religious freedom.
