It's not only their compromises with Democrats (generally entitlements) that are the problem. It's their stance against gay marriage. It's their attempts to prohibit or restrict pornography. It's their stance against the freedom to use drugs. It's their stance against free trade.

These are all restrictions of our freedoms that aren't restrictions against violating the rights of others. These restrictions on our freedom are violations of our natural rights. _______________


I agree with you on most of these, but frankly marriage is a social construct, and no Republican is trying to keep gays apart(legally anyway) they just do not want to give it the same acknowledgement as marriage.

I still see that making sense, as why was marriage EVER specially treated? It was to create the next generation and replenish society.

Now, I have zero problem taking away any preferences for treating married folks if that is the intent. Extending that preference makes absolutely no sense to me.

Marriage is not a right, it is a societal construct created for a purpose.

The others? I agree WTF are the Republicans doing.

Gay marriage, I would rather see the path of abolishing marriage altogether as a societal construct. For why can't a brother and sister marry? Do not they love each other? When my daughter turns 26 if I am widowed, why can't I marry her? I do love her and want to care for her. Marriage really is not about the sex, so where is the problem?

Is there an actual purpose for marriage, and if there is not, why have it at all?
