Obama and Clinton Support Traditional Marriage


It's interesting, isn't it, how politicians can change their mind in the blink of an eye as if they just changed their shoes. They think we should just understand that things change. The only thing that changed is their perception of what the voters want them to say. Both Hilary and Obama state in the following video that they think marriage is between a man and a woman. Neither of them supported gay marriage. What changed for them? What made them decide that "nah, what I thought before doesn't matter now because I think this way now".

This post isn't about whether or not gay marriage should be legal. As I've said before, I am neither against or for the idea because it is not one of my hot buttons. My sister-in-law is gay and does not vote for or against it because she is not interested in marriage.That is her right although she's had fellow lesbians upset with her because they feel she should vote for it. Why... because THEY want her to vote their way and they assume that because she is a lesbian, she will want what they want. Assumptions are really a bad thing.

After watching this video ask yourself... how can we ever believe a word politicians say?

Supreme Court Tells Voters and States They Don't Count



I am no expert regarding the constitution but overriding the American voters and ignoring state law seems to be either unconstitutional or at least illegal. Using one amendment to override another amendment tells us that at any point they can ignore the constitution. Using the 14th to override the 10th means what? That the 10th doesn't really mean anything? 

Tenth Amendment:
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.

Why should anyone vote if those votes don't ultimately count? 

Regarding the decision to make gay marriage legal in all 50 states, I've never really cared whether it was legal or not... it hasn't been one of my major beliefs one way or the other. What I do care about is the Supreme Court making a decision to overrule votes of American citizens and taking power away from the states. This could sadly be the first of many... from now on when certain people or groups don't get what they want, they will throw a temper tantrum and shout "Lets send it to the Supreme Court... they will give us what we want".

I realize changes need to happen. I also think that those changes were coming anyway and that if the states persisted with voting, gay marriage would have been passed in more and more states and eventually nation wide. Now all they've done is force an issue into existence rather than letting it happen through voter choice. 

Here are my previous posts on gay marriage. I have only voted once on the subject and that was after the riots in California. Not getting your way is no reason to destroy other people's property and lives. The voting process is there for a reason and sometimes it takes a while to get what you want. And sometimes you never get everything you want. But there are those who truly feel that they deserve everything to be their way and their way only. I didn't care one way or the other until those riots. Since then, now years later, I've gone back to not voting on the subject because I don't feel anyone should vote on something that they either a) don't have enough information on or b) don't have enough reason to vote yes or no. If my state decided to make it legal and I did not vote then I would not complain. On the other hand, if my state decided to make it illegal I could again not complain if I did not vote. 

But now... now it doesn't matter if I vote or not because the Supreme Court can say "so what... we want it this way and that's just they way you're going to get it... like it or not".

The Current Flood of Idiots

I have been asked why posting on this blog has stopped. Yes, it's been over two years since I posted last. It's just so depressing the political atmosphere these days. After Obama won his first election, I was a bit in shock. It's not the fact people voted for him... it was all the lies everyone believed. People are so gullible.

Today, I see people post things on Facebook or Twitter or various other places and I just don't know why on earth they think the way they do. I'm sure they feel the same of me and feel they are right in all aspects. It's just that so much they say doesn't make sense. They will say one thing and shortly after that say something completely different that contradicts the last statement.

I don't understand why so many Americans feel that America is at fault for everything bad in the world. America has brought peace and happiness to countries across the globe. Take a look at Japan and Germany. They were countries long before us... they had successes long before us... but they decided to try and take over the world. We fought... we battled... we won. What have victors done in the past? They conquer, take all of that country's wealth, and kill anyone who will not convert and pay taxes to them, and do all manner of destroying that country's original heritage.

But that's not America's way. Yes we won... but what did we do next? That is the question that matters and the answer to that is just as important. What so many are saying is that somehow we have delivered more evil to the world than any other nation. And if we let these blind individuals who think making America weak will somehow make the rest of the world strong have their way... we will all be in chains and all freedoms will vanish. Even the freedoms of these idiots.
May we each take the moment necessary out of this day and any day we feel the need to remember those who have gone before us in defense of our freedoms. Without them... we would not be "here"... we would be in chains. ~Bug~
