Why do you think getting government out of marriage would be an improvement?
Why do you assume that is what I think? The Constitution is, indeed, meaningless these days and I feel the fact that it is is responsible for many of our country’s woes. Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, The Dept. of Education, The EPA, DHS...are all unconstitutional...why not one more unconstitutional law/mandate/department? That should fix everything, right? No, we have lost our country and the culture that once represented it. I’m in favor of fighting to reinstate the original intent of the constitution, not further deconstruction in the futile hope of somehow changing our depraved culture. I, personally, have no hope that the zeitgeist can be redirected but fighting for more unconstitutional bandaids would be hypocritical for someone who holds my opinion. You are, of course, welcome to yours.
Oh, for Pete's sake, you've got the question backwards.
Why do you think getting the government involved in marriage would be an improvement. Do we really need governmet to regulate our private lives?
