    The "gay marriage" issue in itself isn't the biggest problem so much as the left's motive for pushing. These militant gay activists seem like they're motivated more just by an anti-cultural sentiment than actual rights, they just perceive the institution of marriage as part of America's tradition, and because to them America is so bad - anything that's traditionally American needs to be changed. But this is really more or less a non-issue, it shouldn't be getting nationwide attention - even most openly gay couples more or less live normally without it, the whole purpose in pushing it is just for ego as much as anything else.
    Why? Most people can see that there are legitimate issues with women serving in combat roles.

    But honestly the two are not related but could easily be argued for side by side. It's not like people are only allowed to fight for one right at a time.

    And, it was once a part of American tradition to own slaves, to treat women as property of either their parents or their husband, segregation, and to deny differently-raced couples the right to enter into a marriage contract.

    A few days ago I read a ridiculous article on a "libertarian" (or liberal-tarian more likely) website Reason.com that seriously thought people in other states would be celebrating this - as if, lol. Gay marriage is 1% about actual rights and 99% about liberal self-righteousness.
    Always good to see an extreme conservative make irrelevant, invalid, and ignorant points. Tell us... do you have anything useful to say on this topic?

    I see this as a very shortsighted view. It would be quite simple to attribute worldwide debt to overpopulation, based on consumption, social welfare, resource availability, technology, and growth needs. By this criteria we might stipulate that the assumption and increase in debt came about due to overpopulation, and will thus increase in step with it.

    As for Social Security, there has yet to be a Ponzy scheme that has perpetual growth, as it is a virtual impossibility over time.

    I believe there was a thread earlier about women in combat roles and that many liberals said that they support the idea.

    And if the "gay agenda" doesnt have any relevance outside of 5% of the population then why are you resisting it so much?

    And gay marriage is about equality under the law no about self righteousness.
