Those fighting for liberty in America secured a historic victory today.

In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court ruled that certain for-profit businesses can cite religious objections in order to opt out of a requirement in ObamaCare to provide free contraceptive coverage to their employees.

If a corporation is under the control of just a few people, the court ruled, and there is no essential difference between the business and its owners, that corporation can opt-out of the mandate to provide free birth control to its employees.

The ruling is good news for Hobby Lobby and thousands of other businesses that hold religious objections to certain forms of birth control.

In a month that saw corruption exposed in both the IRS and the EPA, the lowest congressional approval rating in history, and a highly-questionable negotiation with terrorists, the court’s ruling also comes as a breath of fresh air to Americans burdened with an overreaching federal government.

But this is only the beginning.

At a Convention of States, delegates will be able to propose a complete package of amendments that limit the federal government’s power and jurisdiction. These amendments will have the ability to significantly limit D.C.’s ability to mandate the myriad things they mandate today. Under these amendments, Obamacare and other programs that purport to make your decisions for you will be clearly, unequivocally, unconstitutional.

So if you like the idea of putting restraints on Washington’s ability to reach into your life, you’ll want to check out what your state is doing in the fight for a Convention of States. Visit the Action Center, sign up, and get involved today.
