I've been meaning to comment on this one for awhile, glad its still on the easily-accessible homepage. This is exactly the kind of thing I mention
when people ask "which party" I support, or when Reps call me a "liberal" or Dems say, "oh are you one of those tea party republican types?"
Like many across the first couple pages of replies have indicated, I fit neither, mainly bbecause both parties feel that in one area or another, their
opinion should trump the Constitution, US Values in general, and plain ol' common sense.
Don't tell me you're a conservative if you're against any form of "gay equality" (whether marriage or otherwise.) if you're FOR government
limiting the rights of individuals to live as they choose, you are a liberal. And Dems, if you're FOR government taking away the right to bear arms,
then, much like the Republican who thinks his or her personal opinion, religious or moral beliefs trump the Constitution. Of the United States of
America, you too are little more than an anti-American, terrorist-sympathizing crybaby.
The nonsense of these anti-Constitution types needs to be called out. Sure, everyone has a right to their own opinion, but in the US, your opinion
means absolutely nothing if it runs contrary to the Constitution. I think anytime sommeone says either "gays shouldn't be allowed to marry", of
"guns should be banned", anyone in earshot should point at that person and loudly yell, "Anti-American!", etc. In either example above, they
should then have to stand in front of the crowd and proclaim, "My name is _______, and I despise the Constitution of the USA, all who have died, and
all who have labored to build and preserve this nation, and I will now head home to pack my bags for my move to [fill in chosen dictatorship,
communist, or theocratic nation here]. If they don't, it is the responsibility of the real Americans around them to continue the ridicule, in an
unbroken chain everywhere the person goes, for as long as it can be maintained.
