Well, the courts have long held that corporations are composed of individuals and therefore have constitutional rights. And although the ruling was limited to closely-held corporations, Mrs. Clinton might want to think more expansively. Her liberal friends at some major corporations have been pushing the quasi-religious culture of death since the 1970s.

Hapless employees have by association aided and abetted Planned Parenthood’s abortion agenda as well as homosexual activism, both of which are anathema to devout Christians and Jews. A number of large corporations have been up to their ears selling hard-core, illegal pornography. The willful embrace of immorality is as clearly a decision with religious significance as is willful adherence to God-given natural law.

Mrs. Clinton has no problem with corporate, religious-inspired activity, providing it reflects the religious sensibilities of the priests of Baal or the rulers of Sodom and Gomorrah.

What about the “bad slippery slope” of an America descending into decadence and moral anarchy? It’s a good bet that, like any thinking leftist, Mrs. Clinton welcomes it. The destruction of marriage and family makes people dependent on government and hence dependent on politicians like her.

Speaking of dependency, what are we to make of tens of thousands of illegal immigrants flooding over the Texas border, followed by planeloads of lawyers sent there by President Obama to ensure that they will not only remain in the United States but quickly become newly minted recipients of taxpayer largesse?

Call me paranoid, but it seems to me that someone, somewhere, has decided that America has had its run as the freest and most prosperous, grounded-in-law nation in history. It’s apparently high time to take us down a peg.

I don’t believe for a minute that President Obama is surprised by any of this, or that he is “in over his head” any more than Hillary Clinton is. Conservatives complain in vain about our ruling elites’ supposed ineptness.

What if, as with Hillary Clinton’s reverential Wellesley dissertation on Marxist community organizer Saul Alinsky, Barack Obama is a true believer of the Left who hates everything that makes America unique? What if he took to heart the leftist bromides from his Muslim father and step-father, his mother, his grandparents in Hawaii and his self-acknowledged mentor, communist writer Frank Marshall Davis?

What if he were schooled in radical politics by his friend, unrepentant Weather Underground terrorist William Ayers, and came to believe that if he ever acquired the power to do so, he would show these spoiled Americans a thing or two?

What else rationally explains five and a half years of ripping apart the Constitution, economic and foreign policy disasters, the government takeover of health care, antipathy towards Israel, a slavish devotion to using government to further sexual anarchy, an open borders policy, and the criminal misuse of the Internal Revenue Service and other federal agencies to try to crush political opponents?

As bad as it has been, we may not have seen the worst.

Hillary Clinton said she found the Supreme Court’s moment of moral sanity the other day “deeply disturbing.”

It’s nothing she won’t fix pronto if she ever gets the chance.
