    So what’s so bad about EQUAL PROTECTION FOR ALL??

    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…

    “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?

    And its the children who like to lay blame; whereas, in fact, its us ! We (I) must least to better present our case….in a respectful and civil manner….a weakness of mine….I suffer not fools !
    I think that Masterskrain is describing Germany….or aspects of Germany….they too have problems…
    What RT and MS post makes so much sense…

    What I wonder about is why many more people have not seen thru this conservative extremist smokescreen…..I do not think that this is deliberate….Its fear and ignorance=hatred that causes the smoke..

    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.

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

    banking entitlements? You mean like those enshrined by Barney Frank and Chris Dodd? Last I checked they were democrats. And thankfully both are out of congress. Unfortunately they were replaced by fascists democrats.

    I think George Tekai called it the “ick” factor. Brilliant actor.
