Are you, 12? If not, stop acting like a juvenile.You're parsing my comments. I'm only going to tell you once.
I've never argued pursuit of happiness, nor need I do so, even though it was a founding principal established in the Declaration of Independence.Anyway, I like how you stopped short of claiming a right to "the pursuit of happiness". You meant to say it. Along with life and liberty, it's not guaranteed. Legal punishment includes incarceration and, in many states, execution.
Sounds nice! But you're not paying attention to the words in those documents.
Please consider the real mechanics of law and the real mechanics of politics before snubbing a simple and elegant truth. The law isn't above the power brokers. It never was. It's a lie unless you can get people to believe in the legal system....and your flavor of vigilantism isn't going to do it.
You're bribing voters with continued marriage perks if they include you into the status quo. That monkey is an addict. It will come back for more and your socialist liberals have run the treasury about dry. You're their last gasp effort to keep THEIR pension plans. Tell us how well that works out for you when your 1 or 2 percent of the population needs to uncork their authoritarian solution!
So long as the constitution contains equal protection of the law, such an argument is unnecessary.
Feel free to present a rational argument to the contrary.
