Well, that's certainly one way to look at things. Its a stupid way to look at things, but it's one way.
The bottom line is that you so-called conservatives are the biggest hypocrites there are. That's why your republican party is the Whig party.
You whine about big govt out of one side of your mouth and then want to violate the Constitution up and down regarding your idiotic war on drugs or the patriot act or NDAA.
You whine about big govt regulation out of one side of your mouth and then want to use big govt to dictate marriage or tell people they cant screw on film and sell it (we can quibble about the porn because that is actually interstate trade).
You whine about big govt spending and beurocracy out of one side of your mouth and then get in control of govt and eliminate, reduce or clean up what?
You people can cling to your notions of using big govt to dictate YOUR morality but that America died a long time ago. Wake up and smell the coffee or the entire notion of conservatism will go buh bye. You are what's wrong with the republican party.

Well, aren’t you the bitter little Repuglican?
Pro-gay marriage? Check
But I ask... Where are your pro-abortion, pro-open borders, pro-gun control talking points? If you’re going to go liberal here, at least be honest enough to endorse all the libertarian agendas.
Yet you wonder why you people don’t win elections? You did get one thing right: “You are what’s wrong with the republican party.”
I proudly STAND by that accusation. As you and the RINO party march lock-step with the Democrats toward social liberalism, don’t be surprised when you get economic liberalism as well.
Well, you know what they say; never get between a libertarian and his hookers and blow. Do you know how to create a libertarian? Take a conservative and remove all common sense.
FYI: FR is anti-homosexual agenda. If you have a problem with that, you need to post elsewhere. Posters who advocate for homosexual marriage are unwelcome here.
Civil marriage is created and administered by government - how do you propose government not "dictate" it?
conservatism is not about consistency with any principle except that of preserving the truly valuable that’s we’ve inherited from those who preceded us.
“Choice” or “Natural Law” appears to be where you are hung up.
Natural law says unnatural relations and unnatural marriage is unhealthy for both individuals and society.
A society should have an investment in the procreation and rearing of its next generation. A society has no investment in how you get your jollies and who you have warm fuzzy feelings for.
What have we learned that has been handed down to us from preceding generations? That the biological parents of any child are the ones best to rear that child in the best possible way they know how. Therefore, we have learned to value the union of male and female (the potentially procreative union) as crucial for our culture.
Natural marriage is far more important than someone choosing a butt-buddy for today’s orgasmic delight.
