The great thing about The Art of War by Sun Tzu is that it trains your mind to get into the decision cycle of your adversary. This is one of the problems the GOP –and indeed conservatives –have as we do ideological battle against liberal progressive socialists.
Exhibit A is the Hobby Lobby case being presented before the US Supreme Court. On its surface, the case is about religious freedom and a government seeking to impose its will regarding the contraceptive mandate of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, Obamacare. Isn’t it just amazing how the only way liberal progressives can enact their “policies” is by force and coercion? Do this or else.
Hobby Lobby Stores and Conestoga Wood Specialties have sued the federal government over the requirement that businesses provide health insurance plans covering contraceptives, including abortion-inducing drugs.
What right does the federal government have to tell a private sector company it MUST provide something — or else face a financial penalty? President Obama and his socialist acolytes are swimming in dangerous waters. It starts here, but where does it end? Tyranny, that’s where.
Here’s what the liberals really want. As reported by CNSNews.com “During oral arguments in the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday which focused on whether the contraceptive mandate in the Affordable Care Act violates the free exercise of religion, Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan suggested employers who have moral objections to birth control simply shouldn’t provide health care coverage for their employees, saying “Isn’t there another choice nobody talks about, which is paying the tax, which is a lot less than a penalty and a lot less than — than the cost of health insurance at all?”
In layman’s terms, what these two female liberal Justices were saying was, bend to our will or pay the tax — what type of choices are those for a private sector business? And it has nothing to do with “the law of the land.” Just last night Obama and his cronies delayed, changed, altered (yet again) the sign-up deadline, just another one of the many waivers, exemptions, and delays. Obamacare is no longer a law, it is a moving target, an edict commanded from on high.
The true end state of liberal progressives is a single payer system. That’s why Kagan and Sotomayor prefer Hobby Lobby drop its people from insurance coverage and force them onto the government exchanges. As well, the monumental fines that the government would impose — millions of dollars — could prove deadly for the business. The employers at Hobby Lobby want to provide quality healthcare coverage to their employees — but not against their convictions and faith beliefs. Have we come full circle in America where we now punish those who possess a Judeo-Christian faith?
The exchange between Justice Kagan and Paul Clement, representing the plaintiffs, is telling
