I have had enough. The jokes, the comments, the bashing, and now the proposed marriage amendment? I do not understand the big deal…and I am tired of the christian right constantly trying to tell me how to live. Bush wants to “preserve marriage”, but he and his christian right friends do not get it…so let me put it in terms they might all understand: we want the right to divorce. Does that help W? Do you now understand? All the straight people have the opportunity to marry, screw up their marriage, screw up their kids, and then divorce. How is that fair? So please, do not talk to me about “preserving marriage” when half of these sacred unions end up in divorce.
From the White House press release:
“America is a free society, which limits the role of government in the lives of our citizens. This commitment of freedom, however, does not require the redefinition of one of our most basic social institutions. Our government should respect every person, and protect the institution of marriage. There is no contradiction between these responsibilities. We should also conduct this difficult debate in a manner worthy of our country, without bitterness or anger.”
Respect every person? How are you doing that Bush? You treat terrorists and their families better than gay people in your own country. Thanks for never taking any interest in constitutional law or even having a basic understanding of what this country was founded on. Church is not state. State is not church. Learn to separate it. The Constitution guarantees rights, not takes them away. Let’s try that again…the Constitution guarantees rights, not takes them away. What, if you were president in the 1960s, we would have an anti-African American amendment? Or perhaps if you were president in the 1920s, we would have an anti-women voter amendment, you know to keep the sanctity of voting in place. Whatever. Keep sending your Bush 2004 volunteers to help Nader. Create some smoke screen. Have daddie’s big wigs help you win office. Keep the US people in suspense with all the terror alerts. Just know that you, your policies, and your life are transparent to those who take a few minutes to see you for who you really are. A name with only big money behind it. Have some respect for our country and what we stand for.
