No way the now extreme and "social engineer's" of the Republican party, that includes those who vote in the primaries, will give him any chance to
upset those who really want to control those private aspects of our life, and allow anything but the right wing to have any chance of winning the
nomination. Want to send a message to those in any party any where to get out of our lives unless it affects the well being of other's? (This IS a
rather simplistic generalization, but also I think true) He needs to run as an independent if for no other reason to send a message to the extreme in
all parties, but for the moment it seems the Republicans are more interested in doing anything to bring down a current President then doing anything
of value. Or anything else. Except of course such urgent value as voting to keep "In God We Trust" on courtroom walls, (it should not be there but do
I loose sleep over it? No.) Or to for the first time have an amendment that restricts the civil rights of any group of people, in this case gay people
by barring what is nothing more then the legal advantage of marriage: The right to inherit property or make end-of-life decisions for their
And since the separation of church and state can not and must never "demand" a religious entity legally offer marriage as a sacrament when it's
contradictory to that faith or "congregation" or that of a paster/rabbi/priest, (who ever) who for reasons of their own views "just can't marry gay
people", just what is the problem? It seems to some, as we saw in the racial debates of the 1960's that the civil rights of one group are like hard
money, gold for example. Only so much to go around. Bull. I wish people would just grow up and stop acting like civil rights are "a limited
commodity". There not, just what they are civil rights. And mine are not going to be a problem for you, not when it involves something like marriage.
Or most anything I can think of off-hand. Me? I don't care about getting married anytime that I can see in the foreseeable future. For me, it's not
important, for me. Today. But the fact it is for some people, indeed it's very important to them. And I respect others and that of civil rights so
much, and value so much, even though it's not an issue for me personally, at all, this is why I bother to speak out on this.
It is a civil rights issue and for that reason it's very important to me. It better be, because next time it could involve something that matters
personally to me. Or something that affects you. And civil rights should matter to everyone. I will lend my voice to speak out and offer what support
I can when it involves the rights of others. Anytime, anywhere. As long as you don't trample the rights, freedoms or theaten the safety of others,
(And if you do that I will be a lot louder.) I will not be silent. To paraphrase an old but good add dentists used to have "ignore your freedom, and
it will go away".
