    Now show me where the constitution gives the govt the power to regulate drugs or immigration
    Commerce Clause. Drugs are illegal under the guise of you need a stamp for carrying or selling. Federal Government issues no stamps for public consumption. Started with the Harrison Narcotic Tax Act and then went to the Marihuana Tax Act of 1937 (yep that's how they spelled it).

    I"d be more sympathetic to your pov if the states' rights crowd complained about the feds intrusion on the state issue of marriage
    Marriage has been around a lot longer before the fed government started doling out benefits. But the conversation I was having was more about do you marry for love or do you marry for benefits.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    1. You had to say it or put yourself in the obvious corner.

    2. Do you think we are the result of millions of years of evolutionary accidents? Yes or no will suffice. Thanks

    I realize that those who want to deny others equal rights always have a rationalization for why they're OK with the govt treating others unfairly, but yours took the cake

    You may want to limit the discussion to an argument that benefits your side, but the thread is clearly about more than that.

    Call it a discussion or a thread within a thread. I head on the news coming home from picking up my grand daughter from school, that the SCOTUS will probably punt on the California ruling. This throws it back to the 9th circuit courts previous ruling the the ban was unconstitutional. If they do this, I do not have a problem with it. I think it is the right decision and gay marriages in California will once again be legal. But of course we will have to wait until June to actually hear the SCOTUS verdict as most of the talking heads usually get their rulings wrong.

    Tomorrow the SCOTUS will hear arguments over DOMA. Now that I feel is unconstitutional.
