This blog used to be about politics. Not so much anymore as I have worked through my fascination with that subject. It now seems appropriate that with a new president and the end of the Bush nightmare that I move on to new subjects that are more in line with my current interests. I may still occasionally express an opinion about political matters but for the most part I will be commenting on music, photography and personal observations. Thank you for reading.

President Calls for Constitutional Amendment Protecting Marriage:

"On a matter of such importance, the voice of the people must be heard. Activist courts have left the people with one recourse. If we are to prevent the meaning of marriage from being changed forever, our nation must enact a constitutional amendment to protect marriage in America. Decisive and democratic action is needed, because attempts to redefine marriage in a single state or city could have serious consequences throughout the country."

Glug Glug Glug...

That's the sound of President's Bush re-election campaign as it descends to the bottom to find his base.

On the issue of equal rights for gay people, the right wing fundies will go down in history yet again as being on the wrong side of human dignity and social progress. That Bush is willing to follow them into history should be enough reason not to vote for this man and his cronies come 2004.

I know this because the issue revolves around a deep seated hatred of gay people as part of religious dogma. Much in the same way it was dogmatic to oppose interracial marriage, voting rights for women, equal rights for blacks and so on and so forth. I know this because the battle has already been won. The demographics already show that the younger generation no longer holds the same prejudices as the current one. Even if this constitutional amendment passes (which it won't hopefully) then it will be thrown out.

According to bruce's Rules of Government #231 we know that "In a free society that respects individual freedoms, tolerance will always grow faster than intolerance."

We recognize that as we allow more freedom for others the more we can expect for ourselves, and that if we build up institutions that curtail our freedoms they will inevitably be turned against us.

As much as the Republican rhetoric espouses individual freedom, we see that those freedoms only extend to the point where they might serve to enrich their corporatist buddies. You will have more freedom to throw money into Wall Street, but we'll be keeping an eye on your sex life and intervening when we feel its necessary to generate campaign contributions. They have blown another hole into their false image as a party of individual liberties.
