    For Republicans

    I am curious about a few things, and wish to poll our membership for enlightenment.

    Re: For Republicans

    It seems that the republicants, like the demorats, have decided that the constitutional enumerated powers are "outdated". It seems that the importance of a matter (issue?) now can (and will) be used to elevate that into a federal government power. Education, medical care and income redistribution are not federal gov't powers granted by the constitution yet both parties try to pretend that they are. The SCOTUS allows new unconstitutional laws, like PPACA, to stand (slide?) based largely on the excuse that since they were passed at the federal level then they must be OK.

    Re: For Republicans

    You forgot "I'm under 40 and I'd like the party to actually be half-way fiscally conservative instead of corporate cronies and I'd like them to actually respect individual liberty instead of just saying they do then violating just about every right we have."

    As it stands there's no good reason for the republican party to exist. If we want corporatism and massive spending the democrats already have us covered. So the only unique thing you bring to the table is war mongering and liberty violations poorly disguised as religious actions.

    The party is becoming degenerate. A larger and less extreme version of the libertarian party. It's becoming dominated by people who think that social conservatism should be abandoned.

    Well......I was going to post on this thread but then I read this......so now I've got nothing.

    Just because your party is drifting away from wanting to deny rights to gays doesn't make them suddenly libertarianesque; it just makes them slightly less childish and a little more constitutional.

    Where does the Constitution mention gay marriage?

    Exactly. Where does the constitution enumerate the government with the power to negate contracts made between two sovereign citizens? If you find it, let me know.

    (And FYI, the supreme court ruled 13 times that marriage is a fundamental right.)
