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.

Well, that's the way it was supposed to be. But the states sold that early on, allowing the Feds to assume their debts.

Since that day in 1790, as Madison, Hamilton and Jefferson compromised over dinner, we've had a strong federal government with subordinate states.

“Marriage has always been a state issue. Show me your “national marriage license”. It doesn’t exist.”

Again - you’ve been preaching this for how long now? The result, no DOMA, and gay marriage everywhere.

Fantastic job!
