Crap like this is why the Libertarian Party has never amounted to a hill of beans, and why it never will.

Worse than their obsession for legalizing weed. Hell, I'm even beginning to think legalizing weed may be a good idea to get us through the crap ahead.

Then I remember that it is a favorite George Soros initiative to make sure the sheeple are drunk, stoned and ineffective at opposing their NWO.

On the SCOTUS Live Thread this morning there was a foaming-at-the-mouth libertarian who mocked posters’ belief in God and thought the Supreme’s decisions were just great.
He called FR posters “jack-booted conservatives”, among other things.

He’s still here, which I can’t understand. Are there no moderators anymore?

Well, that’s not true, but which party is fiscally conservative? Certainly not either Demopublicans or Republicrats.

Libertarian Party is about to meet Generation Text. Pro-Gay Marriage, Marijuana Legalization, anti-NSA snooping. A perfect storm. They are about to start growing rapidly methinks.

Homosexuality is a sin, not a class of people (Leviticus 18:22).

It is a sin that needs to be repented of and forsaken like all other sins. The Supreme Court blew it big time and caused harm to America, our values, and our way of life.

Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Invite Him into your heart and repent of your sins today - He will come in, forgive you of your sins, make you new on the inside, and help you be the person He has called you to be.

The answer is that there should be no more Rosevelt benifits at the Federal level no more. Git rid of SS, Food Stamps, Income taxes, Medicare, Fed Reserve, Federal Military, ... well why night remove all budgetary obligations at the Fed level and let States manage their people.

This is why the Civil War was fought. If Lincoln would of tried what he did then now the SCOTUS would have said "NO" States rights.

He called FR posters “jack-booted conservatives”, among other things.

The individual is Outraged At FLA and his disgusting comment is:

Apparently you are just a jack booted conservative. This site is called FREE Republic, not Tyrannical Republic.. Thanks for playing.

The post number is 131 in the linked thread. As I see things, Free Republic is a forum for Conservative activism and not a liberal debating society, with the individual also stating:

who am I to tell other adults what they define marriage as?

From my vantage point, that sure seems like a defense of the homosexual agenda. But of course, the poster has a long tenure here at FR and I'm just a n00b, so what do I know?

I was a little excited. States rights have really been the theme here. Please make sure, God has put it in his bible and My state of South Carolina agree what marriage is, Man and Woman. The Fed is where the problem is, not a single instance. Over and over the SCOTUS has said the 10th amendment is more important than any issue.

I look at it is not the Fed position to define a State resident its due payout based on the State not what an IRS agent believes.

Reynolds vs the United States explains why Marriage doesn’t fall into this bin.

Reynolds argues that the marriage definition in the united states dates to the colonial period prior to the constitution. the definition - then as now, was one man and one woman, and most importantly, that the federal government had the authority in their jurisdiction to defend the definition of marriage.

They, like with Habeaus Corpus and Trial by Jury do not have the ability to change what these terms mean. But they do have an obligation to protect them within their jurisdiction.

This is why states like Utah could not pass polygamy laws. and the same ruling shuts down MA and all the other sodomite states. It also bars changing the definition.

Read the case.

Supreme Court complied with Constitution concernnig DOMA, imo. If citizens would read Constitution then they would know that DOMA was arguably a religious test on federal employment, such tests prohibited by Clause 3 of Article VI.

And while I support only traditional one man, one woman marriage, the Founding States had also made 10A to clarify that Constitution’s silence about marriage and abortion means that such issues are uniquely state power issues; activist justices got away with Roe v. Wade because citizens don’t read Constitution.

In fact, only reason that I can figure that Constitution-ignoring Congress made DOMA was for “Christian” incumbents to win votes from Constitution-ignorant Christian voters.

I think you misunderstand my point. The SCOTUS might be wrong that they did not take up and make it either way. They punted. My issue is that now the Feds have problems and SCOTUS has reversed tradition. We all must realize that what state you live in means something. I agree this opens the door for Utah or whatever State to make its own definition. Does this mean Conservatives have to live in Liberal states?

My thinking is now its more important on where you live than anything else. The day might come that South Carolina flag might fly higher than the USA flag. We wanted Newt anyway.

The callers on talk radio today (several station, several programs I listened to) were saying that it is rough on same sex couples who have to surrender half their wealth when their partner dies. How about ending the confiscatory estate taxes instead since tax was already paid on the original income/investment?

BUT NO, libertarians never push that side of the equation.
