    Hiya, rahl! Happy New Year! It's gonna be a real barn-dance this year, ain't it...? Oh, and I don't really give a damn whether it's so-called "conservative" judges, "liberal" judges, or queer judges, like Walker overturning the will of California voters -- it's wrong! A country is its people, rahl, and the will of the people should always be what governs a country!

    Good example: here in Colorado the will of "we the people" was to legalize and authorize the recreational sale and use of marijuana in our state's boundaries. I'm the arch-Conservative, as you know well, but I voted FOR this because I believe in the will of the people to allow the sale and use of whatever we damned well please! Now, I'm just waiting for some federal judge, "conservative", "liberal", or otherwise, to slam a gavel down and pronounce that the Colorado law is thrown out, forthwith, because he doesn't like it, for whatever prejudice or whim he has!

    In principle, I very much doubt that a high ranking officer in Obama's Praetorian Guard would approve of that! But hyperlibs always parse through negotiable things like "the will of the people", and only those things that pass tests for political-correctness and liberal agenda are tolerated... right? You bet! Sieg Heil!

    Sorry Mac, but they are. I know you hate it, but that doesn't make it to away.

    Thankfully, our founders set up this country to not be subject to the whims of the majority. We have a constitution, and like it or not, you are bound by it.

    I agree drugs should be decriminalized, but for now, it is a federal crime. Fed trumps state, so your state can vote on anything it wants, but of the fed chooses to peruse the issue, you will lose.
    I believe in the constitution, it's a shame so many on the right do not.

    Hey, todd, Happy New Year to you, too! Great queer kissing picture, but it won't have the desired effect on me, unfortunately. Two mentally/physiologically defective members of the same gender having sex with each other may be repulsive to me, but, that's not the point, is it...? The point is the "will of the people", todd, as I explained to your Guard commander, rahl, in the preceding post. And, no, I don't think the "will of the people" should only be allowed for things that I personally like, and denied for things that I personally find abhorrent. If I did, how would I be any different from you, and rahl?

    If the will of the people changes in a state to redefine marriage as pertaining to two men, two women, a man and multiple women, a woman and multiple men, a man and his dog, a woman and her vacuum cleaner, etc., etc., then SO BE IT! What I'm defending is the expressed will of the people! What the hell are YOU and rahl defending...? Sieg heil!

    Except they're conservative.

    If we do not live by rule of law as established by the will of the people then we live in a state of cynical, tyrannical despotism, ruled by whatever autocratic oligarchy has seized power at any given time. The Nazis in Germany were an excellent example! The Communists in the Soviet Union were another.... Consequently, rahl, you and I will never agree. You don't believe in rule of law as established by the will of the people. I do. And so the endless trench-warfare goes on, and on, and on, and on. My faction feels your boot heel on our heads when you are in power, and your faction will surely feel ours when we regain power. Keep your eye on November now, Commander -- everything depends on that. The great irony is that we'll be at each other's throats on the day that our common enemies in the world overwhelm both of us, and then there won't be an America to quarrel over anymore....

    No, we live by the constitution. i know you righties hate the constitution, but it remains strong regardless.

    Don't forget the Martians. They are just as relevant as nazis or Russians.

    I know. I believe in the constitution. You don't.
    There is no enemy capable of attacking the US.

    Was true the first time I corrected you, and will continue being true every time you pretend they aren't. I know you hate it Mac, but that doesn't change reality.

    China could someday.

    But considering the severe shortage of women in china due to the one child policy maybe there will be so many homosexuals that they decide to make love not war.

    Even if it means sending troops, President Obama should not allow this type of egregious, anti-democratic behaviour to occur in today's modern world. Obama's New America is the reputed leader in efforts to inflict U.S.-style democracies on misbehaving nations. As the world's foremost leader, President Obama must stand by his sterling, unchallenged reputation.

    Thank you

    Well, you don't seem to be upset. Are you happy about Uganda as well?

    Well, I look forward to the Right's COMPLETE support of any gun control/ban legislation that is supported by your sacrosanct "will of the people" (a simple majority). :roll:

    PS. The Nazis in Germany had majority support.

    Neither can consent. You keep trying this and it doesn't work. Stop comparing adults with children and animals.

    So tell us, are you celebrating Nigeria's law?

    Yes, it is- no matter how much you wish to think otherwise. Many conservatives believe in freedom. Some like you, do not.

    The age of consent is whatever the law says it is.

    And the law is whatever one crazy lib judge says it is.

    I am happy for Nigeria.

    They are just protecting themselves from a plague that is sweeping other parts of the world.

    So you think it's great that gay people are put in prison? Seriously?

    OK, but you don't hate gay people or anything right? You just think we should be put in jail. You no longer can claim that you are not a homophobe. You are- own it.

    Gays don't have to break the law.

    It's their choice to engage in such disgusting and illegal activity.

    Just like Uganda, homosexual behavior has been against the law for decades. US pators had nothing to do with it.

    They sure do talk about it a lot, don't they? And they keep getting caught too.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I did not choose to be attracted to the same sex. Quit lying.

    You're busted- you're a homophobe. Own it. You've shown your true colors. I suspect a lot of our other "conservative" posters feel the same way, they just won't admit it. You also don't believe in freedom.

    Criminals may be attracted to the money in your pocket but that does not give them the right to take it.

    And I am not a homophobe because calling it a phobia implies the criticism is unreasonable when it isn't.
