The President has forgotten that we are the "United States" and that we have a Constitution that limits his power.

He has tried to make us the "Divided States" by using authority that was not delegated to him from the people. If that authority was not delegated to him by the people, then where did it come from?

The President has no authority to make any laws. That responsibility is left to Congress, who represent the People.

The President has no authority to enforce any law that contradicts the 1st Amendment, i.e. the religious protection given to the Catholic Church.

Because the President has assumed authority and because the President has chosen to ignore the Constitution, the full wrath of the people should force the President to retract his phony laws. The full wrath of the people should force the President to make a full and complete apology to the Catholic Church, where he should admit that his understanding of the Constitution was faulty, where he should admit that his understanding of his authorized duties was faulty.

But he won't apologize. He will assume that we're all fools who can't read the Constitution.

If the president that we elect every 4 years is only expected to be a caretaker, why doe we have to elect him by vote? Why not just select a president by lot like we do with jury duty?

Just over 50% of Catholics support his contraception ruling. Catholic plurality states are the ones with gay marriage. I don't think this social issue stuff is going to make much of a difference. After all, a Catholic group attacked the Ryan budget deeming it immoral.

"...Consider the Catholic vote. In the aggregate, the category is not particularly coherent...".

But I'll go ahead and make the case anyway.

"...A shared faith does not always mean shared political behavior...".

But I'll go ahead and make the case anyway.

"...Correlation is not causation...".

But I'll go ahead and make the case anyway.

"...Many Catholics have issues with their own institutions...".

Now we're talkin.

Oh, but wait...

"...Pennsylvania or Ohio, where the votes of white Catholics could matter greatly...".

So, this IS about race?

I thought it was all about policy...

"...The Catholic bishops of Pennsylvania recently sponsored a day of prayer and fasting in response to what they called the "unprecedented and gross infringement" of religious liberty...",

by Priests of the Catholic Church who have preyed upon Catholic youth.

Finally.
