The Federal Government Is a Thief!

Watch this video:

Today, all five of my blogs are posting the same material. These blogs are:

A big, burly man walks into a pharmacy and hands the clerk a note. The note says:

“I have a female friend who needs contraceptives of all kinds. She, however, does not want to pay for them herself. This note should be considered a strong demand that your company supply these needed contraceptives to her immediately. Fill your largest bag with them. If this is done, nothing further will happen. If not, who knows what may befall the company.

Providing said contraceptives is for her health. You do want her to be healthy don’t you? Your company has sufficient profits that it will not miss the relatively small amount being provided free to her for her healthy existence. You do want her to be healthy don’t you?

Thank you very much for your assistance in this matter. I will return when she needs further assistance. Until then, have a good day!”

The clerk quickly fills the bag and reluctantly hands the bag over to the man. He then exits the building.

Clearly the man stole the contraceptives from the company.

Now, substitute “the federal government—the President through executive fiat” for the big, burly man. Substitute “mandate” for the note. The result is:

The federal government has mandated that women be provided free contraceptives including the so-called “morning after pill” which MURDERS unborn babies. What is different about this mandate in comparison to the above story? Nothing of substance.

Every contraceptive provided has a cost of production. It is not free. The federal government is stealing from someone—whoever is providing the product free of charge. And it is clearly illegal, immoral, and Unconstitutional. It is the act of a dictatorial, totalitarian government. If the federal government can mandate this, they can mandate anything in the name of “helping” someone in need!

The Constitution clearly names the powers and duties of the President. Nothing! Absolutely NOTHING in the Constitution gives the President or anyone or any other body in the federal government the power and/or authority to “mandate” that anyone and/or any entity must provide a good or service as desired by the federal government. NOTHING! This mandate is pure evil, pure dictatorial, pure totalitarian in scope. IT is absolutely UNCONSITUTIONAL!

Read the relevant sections of the Constitution pertaining to the President for yourself.

The United States Constitution Article II, Sections 2 and 3 contains the official Constitutional powers and duties of the President of the United States. Following are sections 2 and 3 in their entirety.

“Section. 2.

The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States, and of the Militia of the several States, when called into the actual Service of the United States; he may require the Opinion, in writing, of the principal Officer in each of the executive Departments, upon any Subject relating to the Duties of their respective Offices, and he shall have Power to grant Reprieves and Pardons for Offences against the United States, except in Cases of Impeachment.

He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for, and which shall be established by Law: but the Congress may by Law vest the Appointment of such inferior Officers, as they think proper, in the President alone, in the Courts of Law, or in the Heads of Departments.

The President shall have Power to fill up all Vacancies that may happen during the Recess of the Senate, by granting Commissions which shall expire at the End of their next Session.

Section. 3.

He shall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedient; he may, on extraordinary Occasions, convene both Houses, or either of them, and in Case of Disagreement between them, with Respect to the Time of Adjournment, he may adjourn them to such Time as he shall think proper; he shall receive Ambassadors and other public Ministers; he shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States.”

Furthermore, fearing the abuse of power that was granted within the Constitution, Congress soon passed Amendments to further restrict the federal government including Amendment V.

Amendment V of the United States Constitution contains the following:

“No person shall be held to answer for a capital, or otherwise infamous crime, unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use, without just compensation (My use of red—my addition).”

“[N]or shall private property (contraceptives of all varieties—my addition) be taken for public use (And NOTHING gives the federal government the power and/or authority to take private property for private use!—my addition), without just compensation (And in this mandate no compensation is offered or given!—my addition).”

Clearly and obviously, the federal government is a thief! And those who accept the stolen contraceptives are accessories after the fact! And any court that allows it to happen is an accomplice.
