THE PROBLEM WITH SANTORUM
Of course they can. States could outlaw purple hats or Gummi bears under our Constitution!
State constitutions, laws, judicial rulings or the people themselves, voting democratically, tend to prevent such silly state bans from arising. But the Constitution written by James Madison, et al, does not prevent a state's elected representatives from enacting them.
The Constitution mostly places limits on what the federal government can do. Only in a few instances does it restrict what states can do.
A state cannot, for example, infringe on the people's right to bear arms or to engage in the free exercise of religion. A state can't send a senator to the U.S. Congress if he is under 30 years old. But with rare exceptions, the Constitution leaves states free to govern themselves as they see fit.
In New York City, they can have live sex clubs and abortion on demand, but no salt or smoking sections. In Tennessee, they can ban abortion, but have salt, creches and 80 mph highways. At least that's how it's supposed to work.
And yet when Santorum tried to explain why states could ban contraception to Bill O'Reilly back in January, not once did he use the words "Constitution," "constitutionally," "federalism," their synonyms or derivatives. Lawyers who are well familiar with the Constitution had no idea what Santorum was talking about. Read More »
This is a repost of this Romney whore Ann’s piece.
“I also wonder why he’s running for president, rather than governor, when the issues closest to his heart are family-oriented matters about which the federal government can, and should, do very little.”
“Family oriented” issue like murdering babies. Right Ann?
Are you sure she is paid?
She’s right. The economy is the issue. His plan is all more government spending. Triple child tax credits???
Run for governor? Run for pope
Why do you need to take a cheap shot at the catholic church ?
Why is catholic trashing ?allowed here
SANTORUM’S PROBLEMS AARE NOT NEARLY AS SERIOUS AS THOSE OF aNN COULTER! RIGHT NOW I AM ALL FOR HIM!
IS ANYONE LISTENING TO MARK lEVIN TODAY? WHO CARES WHAT cOULTER THINKS O0R SAYS? sHE IS A PHONY!
This Romney bot has destroyed her career !
She must be getting paid !
She defends Romneycare and her Leader
actually donated to
Planned parenthood !
If Romney is banned here why is this
Romney bot allowed to be still be posted here ?
She is such a fraud like you said .
Abortion isn't a state's issue. The right to life is an unalienable right bestowed by our Creator. Abortion is therefore unconstitutional. Judges who rule unconstitutionally should be removed. Vote Newt Gingrich.
I’m exhausted from chasing this story all over the forum. It feels like a shell game.
Romney isn’t banned here, nor are Romney supporters unless they go overboard in thier support of Romney as far as I can see.
Positive and negative articles about Romney are allowed to be posted so FR members are not hiding from what is going on in the rest of the world.
Just don’t click on threads that get you upset is my advice.
Oh and btw, Paperdoll didn’t say Coulter was a fraud
Ann, you’re such a jerk. How about marriage being encouraged by tax laws? You think we’re stupid, you sell out.
Cobert. Pronounced Co Bear.
She is Steve’s sister
Some here apparently think helping Romney tear apart the guy who, at least at this moment, has the best chance of denying Willard the nomination is the way to go as long as it promotes their guy (or so they think). Even if it means using MSM talking points.
The idiocy is breathtaking.
America’s morals are in the ashcan. that’s when the economy goes south. It’s been coming on for sixty years but Americans were following the dark piper, accepting the tantalizing “new morality” being dangled before them. America’s form of government was made by and for Christians. Gradually they turned their backs on the Bible, so this is what is being served up to us today. Hell on earth is surely here, for without God there can be no America. Sanatorium is right to focus on America’s morality of breaking every rule in Bible!
