Liberty -vs- Tyranny
Upon hearing President Obama has finally "evolved" into supporting "gay marriage" I was cranked to do a critical post on how he is the "typical leftist" hypocrite. Especially in light of his prior position (2008 campaign) not supporting "gay marriage."
As I found myself reflecting on my own views on this nettlesome issue I realized three things; 1) my views are not that different than the Presidents, 2)they are based on the principles of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution of the United States of America, and 3) that this nation has by far more pressing things to work on than the issue of "gay marriage."
In light of the above considerations there is little I can add. Other than to say any time wasted on this issue, and we all know the socons are revving their engines as I type, is exactly that, a gargantuan waste of time and energy. What we need to focus on is getting our house in order.
Focusing on fiscal responsibility and accountability should be our foremost goal. Deficit reduction through defense spending cuts, reforming entitlement programs, reducing government waste (excess), rewriting and simplifying the tax code, and scaling back foreign aid (welfare) to name just a few. The issue of same sex relationships is nothing more than a diversion from real and dangerous issues. Homosexuality has been around since recorded history, and likely longer. The existence of homosexuals has not caused the collapse of human civilization, and by simply treating them as equals in society under the law will not cause a collapse either.
