I urge everyone to sign this petition. It couldn't be easier. They have over 34,000 signatures as of right now. It's an initiative of Ave Maria Radio, a station that is rock solid Catholic.
If you value the U.S. Constitution, you should sign it. If you think that checks and balances are important to prevent corruption in the power of government, you should sign it. If you support the founding principles of this country, please sign it.
If you've read the Constitution and understand that the First Amendment protects not only freedom of speech but also freedom of religion, you ought to sign it. (I find it incredible that I would write the above sentence, but it seems that some liberals do not understand that freedom of religion is equally protected with freedom of speech. If you value freedom of speech you should sign it-- because when any right in the Constitution is taken away, all rights are in jeopardy.
The text of the First Amendment....
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.
Congress shall make no law prohibiting the free exercise of religion. Yeah. It's that simple. Those who would claim that the HHS mandate does not violate the Constitution are really saying that they don't believe that the Constitution needs to be followed. Enough is enough. The camel's nose is under the tent. We need to act now.
Oh, and might I make another suggestion? Let's get the adorable Bella Santorum in the White House. The last shall be first and the first shall be last. The White House needs more kids living in it.....
