I just don’t get it. You say, every person should be free in deciding how to protect oneself. I’m with you on that. You say, the government should not interfere with ones personal pursuit of happiness. I agree. So why, just why do you want to give the government the power to decide what kind of fucking and loving is marriage worthy? The republican party is the party that once opposed slavery, while the democratic party argued that it’s okay, if slavery goes on for the benefit of a strong state.
It’s kind of Obamaish to give the government the power to force citizen to work and pay for others. Even though I believe, it’s the moral duty of every human being to help and support each other, it’s wrong to call for a big government to force upon the citizen this kind of behavior that I call Menschlichkeit. Menschlichkeit is my believe! But according to the first amendment it’s prohibited for the government to make any law respecting an establishment of a religion. Ones belief has to be one of free choice! Freedom of Choice! That’s what being a Republican means to me.
So why, just why do you forget your liberal heart when it comes down to gays? Shouldn’t the republican rhetoric be: If you don’t like gay marriage, don’t get gay married?
