Due to circumstances beyond my control, I must sally forth to do my annual 2 weeks of stimulating [sic] training in the reserves. The mosquitos can't wait for our arrival, I imagine. In the interest of being brief, I will leave this as my last post for a little while. This is my response to my sister's post about the Marriage Amendment which is winding its way toward certain doom in Congress.
If it wasn't for intrusive government programs and policies (and taxes) which are triggered by marital status, this wouldn't even be an issue to anyone, gay or straight.
The reason why this is an issue is precisely because of big government. On the Left, this is being used to rally the petty Marxists and Leninist Bourgeoisie, who are trying to convince themselves that they are big government Libertarians. On the right, this is being used to rally a flagging conservative movement hijacked by RINOs who want to throw open the borders, spend us into oblivion, and subject us to Bush's latest one-world adventure...Super NAFTA/NAFTA Plus. What you are watching is the end of the two party charade and the beginning of the end of our nation as you know it.
This amendment will never pass, and we all know it. This is just a final attempt keeping the Left and the Right rank-and-file at war long enough to sell us into bondage to an international overlord without our noticing it. We are being defeated by division, division over manufactured struggles, struggles that merely besiege castles in the air.
Don't worry your head over silly distractions like this amendment. Bigger frauds are afoot.
