The problem with that is the founders of this country would never, ever support gay marriage or abortion. They would have thought that to be preposterous. They didn't consider these issues to be about personal freedom. If you are saying that the founders were socially liberal they did not want that all. The founders may have not belonged to any established church but they believed that the constitution was for a moral people, because they themselves were religious. If they lived today they would advocate laws against gay marriage and abortion. They would be appalled that society had become so wicked and hope they wouldn't have to pass any such law, but they would do it.

David3036-If there is no 'war on religion' in the gay community why are people always constantly saying keep your religion out of politics. Morality and religion have always been a part of our nation ever since this nation was founded. This nation was founded on Judeo-Christian beliefs. I have a very hard time believing that when the founders drafted the constitution, they meant that there should be homosexual marriage. The founders were a very moral people and they had no intention that constitution would be used in that manner.

Winning After Losing on Gay Marriage

The author of this article, may choose to think that the issue of gay marriage is over, but it doesn't change the fact that it is wrong. While he has his right to turn a blind eye, I however am opposing gay marriage because I believe that it is the right thing to do. I believe that marriage was intended to be between one man and one woman. There is nothing that we can do to change the Supreme Court's mind, but we can keep fighting for marriage between one man and one woman. It is only inevitable if the people decide that its over. That is why we should teach and educate people on the soundness and morality of marriage between one man and one woman. This is the time to educate, not to give up.
Folks, what this writer Tun Tavern is saying is very evil. He has essentially said he doesn't care what the will of the people is. They are going to force you to do something whether you like it or not.

jboston-Your argument is a bit flawed, because cutting taxes for every income bracket does not add to the deficit, it shrinks the deficit because more money will come into the treasury, by more tax receipts, because people will have more jobs. Spending more money from the fed. government adds government jobs. The private sector sees the spending as more debt that will come in the form of taxes, that they will be paying. The people that have wealth will not invest in jobs because they know it is going to be taken away via taxes. Why would somebody work so much just to give their money to government through high taxes.

What you fail to realize is that it is another human being in there, so no she doesn't have a right to kill it. The baby she is aborting is not her body.

Crony Capitalism is not good either. If the voters were paying attention they would know that Solyndra was involved in crony capitaiism with Obama and the federal government, but obviously they didn't care.
