Santorum, you’re no Lincoln…

“I have been a long-time advocate for states’ rights. However, I believe as Abraham Lincoln did – that states don’t have the rights to legalize moral wrongs.”

Is Rick Santorum now equating same sex marriage with slavery?

The former United States senator from Pennsylvania who was defeated by eleven percentage points in the last election he campaigned in is now bemoaning the other candidates for not supporting an aggrandizement of the federal government.  To top it off he touts his support of the federal government trumping states’ rights on “moral” grounds as a credential of conservatism.

How does advocating the federal government overhauling states’ rights on issues of morality differ from endorsing a national healthcare mandate?  In short order proponents of Obamacare argue people should support the federal mandate because it is “morally wrong” to leave so many Americans uninsured.  Would Santorum agree?   

Message to Santorum:  supporting a constitutional amendment to legislate people’s “morality” is fine until the meaning of morality is construed to control the People.
