For JasonKCJune 30, 2009
None of the rest of you will have a single clue what I am talking about so don’t ask.
I completely understand what is being said….and here is what I take from it. If I am wrong…feel free to comment as I love the debate we’re currently having.
I have several gay friends as well. I don’t believe they should be legally recognized as married partners. If you take government out of it and marriage is something that two people do in a church and 2 gay people find a church willing to do it….more power to them. Government should not tell me I have to recognize that marriage. Same as if they don’t wish to recognize mine.
Abortion? Stem cell? Thats a different story. Libertarians are not for no laws whatsoever. We are not anarchists. I think murder is wrong and should be punished with incarceration. I think if you are messed up in the head and kill someone…you’re still a murderer. Therefore….since I know babies are human….government….doctors….no one…should have the right to kill an innocent human.
Not if neither one of these ideals align with the mainstream libertarian ideals….well then, I will be a normal person. Before this year…I was a Republican. But I no longer associate with those ideals. They are straying too far left. There are Christian Liberals….there are atheist Republicans….there are all kinds in all places. If my beliefs align MAINLY with one of the parties…then I consider myself a part of that party. Not everyone is going to agree. It would be impossible. If the Libertarians don’t want me…and I don’t want the Republicans….I’ll still be a Christian Conservative…and speak up for things I think are good, moral and right. You understand what I mean?
