AllahRomney spends a lot of time questioning Rick Perry’s federalist bona fides because, apparently, the latter is in favor of a federal amendment protecting the term “marriage.”

Now, we shan’t go into AllahRomney’s well-documented proclivities, it’s hardly relevant and, besides, it’s Not Like There’s Anything Wrong With That™, but we’re still a bit baffled as to how a suggestion that we ought to pass an Amendment, using Constitutional procedures, no matter what the nature of said Amendment might be, might somehow put the federalist bona fides of the suggestor into question.

But we’re sure that BetaMalePundit will be able to explain that to us.

That, in case you were wondering, was sarcasm.

Thatisall.

Could be that the “Federal” Government was never intended to have general police powers. Why not just have ONE Criminal Code for the entire country. It could be added “Constitutionally” via the Amendment process. Could be that the “Federal” Government was created with a very small number of very specific powers, none of which were to involve the banning of… Read more »

I puked in my mouth a bit agreeing with Allahputz, and I have nothing special against Rick Perry; but da fax is da fax. A Constitutional Amendment to ban either abortion or gay marriage would be inconsistent with the POWERS (States don’t have rights) retained by State governments in a Federal System. I oppose abortion. I also oppose gay marriage.… Read more »

The Constitution is not just the Law of the Land, it’s a limit on government. I doubt the Founders could conceive of spending so much money, that our entire debt is equal to the size of our GDP.

When people start equating standing for your beliefs with terrorism….refusing to go along to get along…I call it courage….they have already exposed both their motivations and beliefs. Refusing to compromise is not terrorism………….and if people wish to elect someone else, do so. You are not required to be a majority of any group to stand for something……it is irrelevant.

A last on-topic word. The Full Faith and Credit Clause (the one that makes States recognize normal out-of-State marriages and rulings) CAN be defeated if the State has a “compelling State interest”.
