I think that kind of gets the point across.
If you oppose same-sex marriage, great. That’s your right. What should you do about it? Protest if you want, speak out, avoid marrying someone of the same sex. But what right does the government have in determining for consenting adults who they can marry? Is that really the auspice of the Federal Government?!
At worst it’s up to the individual states to decide. After all, there’s that crazy part of the Constitution that says: The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.
Sounds to me like they meant for the Federal Government to have a limited set of rights and responsibilities, and all other matters should be left to the states or, get this, the people themselves! Wow! What a crazy idea! People responsible for their own lives? Able to make their own decisions? Republicans, for all their desire to have “smaller government” sure do like telling us what we can do as consenting adults.
Well, to be fair, so do Democrats.
Which is why I’m Libertarian…unfotunately the Libertarian Party is too busy getting stoned or something or really become a viable 3rd party. So until then, we have the lesser of two evils we have to decide on.
