“Why our Founders didn’t want a national, but a federal government. The 17th Amendment and that dirty one before it are causing all this mischief.”
What? Marriage has never been a state issue. Never. Arguing that it was directly lead to this. Once they eliminated DOMA thanks to the complicity of folks like yourself, that opened the door.
LOL. Marriage has always been a state issue. Show me your “national marriage license”. It doesn’t exist.
The IRS is a national imposition. It comes from the 16th Amendment, the dirty one before the 17th. We have a federal, not a national government. Think of the word confederation and take away the con. We have a federation of states with a very limited federal government.
Read the Constitution and familiarize yourself with it. Marriage isn’t a federal issue.
