In 1996 the Defense of Marriage Act was passed by the House 342-67 and the Senate 85-14 and was signed into law by Bill Clinton. Pretty unanimous, wouldn't you say? It's called DOMA, and it prevents the federal government from recognizing the validity of same-sex marriages. It means that states do not have to recognize custody, alimony and marriage laws made in other states that involve same-sex marriages. DOMA defines marriage as a legal union between one man and one woman. I tell you this only so that you know what DOMA says. It has been a federal law enforced by the Department of Justice since 1996. Until Yesterday.
Yesterday The Ruler-in-Chief Obama decided that he believes DOMA is unconstitutional, and he ordered his Justice Department to cease enforcing it. WOW, THINK ABOUT IT, PEOPLE. One man just ruled that a law passed unanimously by OUR CONGRESS, is UNCONSTITUTIONAL and therefore won't be enforced. Well Pardon Me, but who appointed Obama GOD?
So forget that the so-called "unconstitutional" bill is DOMA. It doesn't make any difference what it is. Congress and the American people just lost another chunk of liberty and our Constitution just got crapped on again.
So this is what I am going to propose. In 2012 Let's elect Sarah Palin, who is universally hated by the progressive left leaning loons. That should make then apoplectic. But then, let's have President Palin declare lots of things unconstitutional and let's have her give her DOJ instructions to cease enforcing them. For instance, Obamacare? Gone, unconstitutional. Roe vs. Wade? Gone, unconstitutional. Immigration laws? See Ya, unconstitutional. Federal Labor Laws? Bye, bye, unconstitutional. The Help America Vote Act? Ooops, you don't get to vote anymore, gone, unconstitutional. No Child Left Behind? So long, Don't need it. Tax Increase Act of 2005? Don't believe in tax increases, so it's gone, unconstitutional. The Stimulus Act, the Housing Recovery Act, Omnibus Act? All spending bills, don't believe in more spending, gone, unconstitutional. Oh, and the Repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell? Well, the military doesn't particularly like it so it too is gone, don't enforce it, it's unconstitutional. And on and on and on.
Do you see how outrageous Obama's declaration about DOMA is? Especially in light of his campaign and recent statements that he believes marriage is between a man and a woman. He knows he's in deep trouble in 2012. In desperation he's pandering to any group he can. This is a pure political play. He's a man with no principles, no ethics, who will do and say anything he needs to for political reasons. And he sits in OUR WHITE HOUSE. I hope all you Hope and Changers who voted for this Puppet of the Left are happy with what you got for your vote.
But it doesn't matter what bill God Obama chose to declare unconstitutional. He does not have the power to declare ANYTHING unconstitutional. THAT'S UP TO OUR COURT SYSTEM, MR. OBAMA! Don't you believe in the power of our three branches of government??? Or are you SO totally ignorant of American history that you don't even realize we have three branches of government?
It's just one more theft of power from Congress and the American people. Weep deeply, Folks, this is a big deal.
