I have to say that I "respect" them more when they stop hiding behind "Fiscal conservatism" "Obama is an illegal" and countless other BS and they just show what they are about.

The tea party made no secret what they were about when they first marched in Broward, Florida right after Obama was elected but over time the pros have taken over and polished it up.

Says the guy who thinks the Constitution doesn't Enumerate Rights.....
So we are back on this childish nonsense now that you had your a$$ handed to you with the discussion of the 14th Amendment.

Your feeble mind has failed you again. You are trying to hard to have that "gotcha" moment so you can get that gold star.

The design of the Constitution was to enumerate certain powers and provide a framework for our government. Through this framework the freedom and right's of the people would be preserved. In not ONE section of the original body of the Constitution will you find a SINGLE "right" outlined. Though one could split hairs in a vain attempt, which I sure you would, to prove me wrong that we do have the "right" to a Republican form of government as outlined in Article IV Sec 4.

In your attempt to gain brownie points you have taken my comments out of context. The previous discussion was in regards to the central purpose of the Constitution, which clearly was to enumerate powers- anyone who has studied the journal on the Constitutional Convention knows this- and claim that I stated there are NO right's outlined in the Constitution.

Now let me give you an education, lord knows you need one.

The original text of the Constitution as presented to the States for ratification did not enumerate a single right- yes we know about Article IV sec 4 we have been over it. During the ratification debates- notably Virginia and New York- issue was taken that the new constitution did not go far enough, and the Federal Government could overstep its enumerated powers treading on the right's of the citizens, as such they demanded a "Bill of Right's" to specifically protect those right's they held most dear. Madison advised against this, stating that doing so would undermine the entire document and lead Government to believe they had those powers all the time even though they lacked the enumeration of power in those areas. Madison's concern is the precise reason why we have the 9th and 10th Amendment.

So to say the Constitution is an enumeration of "right's" as you claim is patently false. If that were the case we would have very few "right's", in fact they would take up less than a page.

No go educate yourself so we can attempt to have an intelligent conversation.

The ENUMERATION in the CONSTITUTION, of certain RIGHTS...
Yeah, Thomas Jefferson was a real idiot:

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--"

Nope, don't see him say we were " endowed by our Constitution..."

Boy, you people will just keep throwing sh%% at the wall until something sticks won't you?

There is no inalienable right to vote. Voting is a function of our government, thus it is subjected to laws and regulations.

Lesson 1: How to dumb down America
- Tell them everything is a "right"

The founders did not believe there was a "right" to vote, they restricted it far more than we do today.

Ah, but the argument against SSM is based entirely on religion. And while science fiction is not a religion (even if some fans think that it is a way of life...), SF does provide various conceptual visions of possible futures, including some very positive images that we all can and should work to bring into fruition.
Not once have I used religion as a point in this debate, so again:

This has nothing to do with religion, so come up with a rational argument.

This all reminds me of Nick Conway and his sgvCOG connections a four Felony charges and final arrested.

Los Angeles County Assessor John Noguez, was arrested October 17, 2012 Wednesday along with Mark McNeil, a principal assessor, and Ramin Salari, a tax consultant and Noguez campaign contributor.

Noguez, whose real name is Juan Renaldo Rodriguez, is charged with 24 felony counts, 13 counts of misappropriation by a public officer, five counts of perjury, four counts of accepting bribes and two counts of conspiracy.

This could lead back to people living and working in Glendora, California also like it did with Nick Conway.

Silly child, once again... ALL species of mammals have been documented with member engaging is same sex relations. So by definitions, it IS natural. Now, if you want to say that it is icky, well then I can't really argue with you, since I am not interested in it either.
Typical lame thought process. If one does it once it must be a normal act. Like I have said many times before, every one in @ 10,000 toads have two heads, that DOES NOT make it normal. Like moho says, even heterosexuals engage in anal sex (yes, at times, not all times), so that is supposed to make homo sex 'normal'? I once laughed at one of moho's dumb remarks so hard I nearly squirted in my jeans, does that make it normal. You dumbarse libturds would probably say yes but it only happened once. If moho said one true statement I would almost think that normal for a ho.

and with painful clarity knowing the difference between marriage and gay unions.

Please, point out the religion of a child missing one or more of the only two they ever get.
Even better, please specify what was 'over-simplified blanketing generalizations'.
This will be good.

There is NOTHING 'over-simplified' about a child being denied a parent of the gender they represent.

There was NOTHING religious in my response.

OK, Mike DiRucci now troll.

Whatever you choose to call yourself, that's entirely up to you.

I'm not sure why you'd pick the name "Mike DiRucci now troll". Shall we refer to you as "Frank Rizzo then troll"? Since you seem to feel the need to include some sort of time stamp.
