    What is it with you and homosexuality dude? now I'm thinking you're gay.

    Unfortunately I'm not a ****ing dictator hence I cannot dictate marriage..

    Sorry but the simplistic viewpoint of "are you for or against gay marriage" doesn't apply to my ideals.

    My answer is - and always will be - that the government has no right to acknowledge marriage legally.

    Do you understand that?

    Ok, I'm whatever you want me to be.

    What is the difference between a gay libertarian and a straight libertarian?

    Say I am gay, say I am straight, how are my politics influenced by any of that nonsense?

    Well, it's a discussion on gay marriage (specifically the Federal government recognizing your marriage). If the Federal government now recognizes your marriage, how is that a negative for you?

    Just thought I'd be the first one to hijack this topic for a change.
    Where in the constitution is the word "marriage" at all?

    How old are you 12-teen?

    How about the federal government doesn't acknowledge marriage?

    Have another drink while you ponder that insane concept.

    I'm not answering for him, but I'm going to answer. Marriage is a shoddy, careless contract and shouldn't be recognized by the government. Contracts for partnerships of any level or type should have proper, fully disclosed, completely detailed, written and signed contracts. Additionally, since it costs considerably less to live as a couple than a single, all the tax breaks etc that recognizing marriage offers are counterintuitive to how they should be distributed, if at all.

    Except that the contract of marriage already covers an enormous number of things (the hospital visits and automatic recognition of inheritances and such are two of the most publicized rights), and so MrNick should appreciate these benefits now that same sex marriage is becoming legal. That he doesn't is counterproductive for himself.

    They aren't, I was just saying.
