I never cease to be amazed by the vitriol created by some people. What I don't understand is why we need a constitutional ban on gay marriage. The constitution is not a place where Americans rights should be abridged. It is a place for limits on government, not people.

I guess I'm naive, but I don't understand why people care whether gays get married or not. The fascinating aspect of all of this is that so-called conservatives who traditionally espouse the virtues of "smaller government" are now saying government belongs in the bedroom and the marital home. It's like anything else - you don't have to like it, but why should anyone be in a position to judge what lifestyle is right and what lifestyle is "wrong"? IMHO, it is wrong to legislate such moral constructs for behavior that doesn't affect or harm other people.

This will become a wedge issue for the GOP - they'll use it to distract from more pressing issues, such as the deficit, Iraq, national security and preparedness, health care, etc.

We can't afford to stay home. Get out and VOTE!
