    If our infrastructure, power grids, computer networks, schools, job futures, and environment was in better condition, I might have more patient with the debates on social issues like gay marriage, abortion, and gun control but those last three issues take near total dominance over all others.
    As a progressive, I don’t believe gov’t – state or national – has any business in how Americans live, love, or make their personal health choices. I also believe that Americans have a right to guns, though I also believe in background checks and that ‘exotic’ weapons require special licenses. However…
    I would much rather know that the bridge I’m about to cross isn’t going to collapse under me, that my water won’t burst into flame if I use my faucet to put out a match, and that my grandchildren are going to get the best education in the civilized world. That is how a civil and respectful society advances into the future.
    Respectfully,
    C.

    @Respectful Troll

    I fully agree with you.
    Sadly, there are forces inside and outside of Government, at ALL levels, that seem to focus on one specific issue, rather then attempt to work for the betterment of ALL!
    YES, we need to focus our collective energies on things like infrastructure repairs, better schooling, better housing, proper health care for ALL, not just the elite rich, helping to create jobs for those that are actively seeking work, and a lot more pressing issues facing our country today.
    Government does NOT need to be trying to Micro-Manage EVERY aspect of EVERYONE’S lives as some seem to desire it to do!
    It can be simple…EQUAL marriage rights for EVERYONE, easy access to affordable reproductive health care and counseling, stricter enforcement of existing gun laws, and rational thought towards future laws, NOT knee-jerk reactions.
    THEN we can work on helping to restore this nation to it’s world leadership position as the leading industrial power with the BEST infrastructure in the world, the BEST highways, the BEST railway system in the world, the BEST healthcare in the world, and more!
    Just sayin…

    Nice rant there you socialistic, marxist, communist moocher. Expecting safe bridges and quality edumacation, not here in these wonderful republican states of america..
    .
    Seriously though, I agree completely. But at least the first of your last three I think ranks with the former. Why? Not because I am gay or a closet homosexual but because any discrimination is abhorrent and should not be a debate at all. But I think the right only stirs up the last three to redirect the attention away from their woeful performance on the former. Because you see, the former, the important factors of infrastructure that make our nation possible, that once made it the greatest nation on earth requires government intervention which in turn requires regulation and taxation to make sure it works for ALL people, not just the extra special ones. And we all know the republicans position on taxation, regulation and equal treatment for all persons, there shouldn’t be any that doesn’t disproportionately benefit the republicans friends and campaign buyers. That is not to say that the Democrats are doing any good on the front of infrastructure either, because they are just as remiss as the republicans on the misdirection of attention, only for slightly different reasons.

    You really do have your head shoved up the toxic waste chute of the propaganda factory don’t you? It is the republicans who strive to divide. Divide couples into those special enough to marry and those who are “Ewww, icky” enough to be denied the same fundamental right. When you make comments like this you only serve to prove how irrelevant you are, but keep it up, it endears you to all of the other trolls.

    You have to understand that the republicans don’t want equal protection for all. They only want to honor and obey the parts of the constitution that they agree with and impose their idea of a theocracy. Besides that, “Two guys holding hands and kissing, ewww that’s yucky” “Two women, now that’s hot, only if I get to join in, forget about my wife.”

    By the way I hope everyone gets that the " "s are to indicate it is not my opinion/thought but my interpretation of the republicans’ actions put into words.

    “Any issue to Dived America = Dem Lib Nirvana.”

    The Republicans in my state added a ballot initiative to last year’s election to add a gay marriage ban into the state constitution. It was largely seen as a political ploy and it back fired on them. Gay marriage will be legal in about two more weeks. If they had left well enough alone last year, it could have been years before it was legalized.

    Dear troll, respectfully: Haven’t you figured it out yet? The Republicans continually press emotional buttons… gay anything, abortion, whatever – as WEDGE issues…so that the nation is so busy yelling and screaming about those things that they don’t take the time to notice the important issues which the Republicans prefer that we ignore…like Global warming, the destruction of the middle class, banking entitlements which shouldn’t exist..etc etc etc. Add to that the Press, which has devolved into tabloid fare, and TV compulsively hooking us (for months!) on trials about murderous girlfriends or whomever, and it all becomes bread and circuses while the entire country goes down the tubes. What good will it do to save the lives of some fetuses if Global warming, overfishing, destruction of forests, the drying up of rivers and the de-population of bees means that in 30 years we will all be extinct?

    Amazing how many states have voted against same sex marriage it is only the court that is driving it forward.

    The direct inverse of what the reality is. The Cons (in both parties) and their Sugar Daddies in the Plutocrat party, want that. It works so well for them and you.

    It wasn’t their right to vote on other people’s rights. That is an abomination to Liberty.

    @Night-Gaunt49

    What is an abomination of liberty, to vote against same sex marriage or to change the fabric of society without an argument that is not emotional in nature?

    Also, I responded to you last from Friday about your idea that Christianity works against Democracy.

    @jack75287

    So you think your argument that is based solely in religion (ever heard of the Establishment Clause?) is a valid reason to deny EQUAL PROTECTIONS to ALL citizens? Good to see you are de facto admitting to only caring about the Constitution when it serves your demands. As for your argument about the fabric of society, isn’t it the fabric of society, the interest of society that an sick or injured person be able to be surrounded by their loved ones? Isn’t in the interest of society that children be loved? Be cared for? Be supported so they can grow to be well rounded, contributing members of society? Well the research and FACTS don’t support your claim.
    .
    Sorry you still refuse to allow the Constitution to apply equally to you as to me, the whole Constitution, not just the parts you like. Sorry you still cling to your bigotry.

    apparently the answer to rodney king’s question, “can’t we all just get along,” for way too many, is no.
