I rarely allow the public to see things on my private Facebook page (which is why I have a public Facebook page, as well) but I'm copying and pasting something I wrote for my private page, because it needs to be said:
Marriage equality isn't a Conservative issue or a Liberal issue. It isn't a Republican issue or a Democrat issue. It's a HUMAN issue, and one that speaks to the very heart of Libertarian-ism. Everyone -- be they straight, gay, bi, or trans-gendered -- should have the freedom to marry whom they choose. Thus, I urge my fellow Libertarians to get off the couch on this one, and make your voice heard. We want less government interference in our lives, and the right to pursue the freedoms guaranteed to us under not only the Constitution and Bill of Rights, but under basic human nature, as well? Well, then, this issue is a fine place to draw the line in the sand and tell the government to butt the hell out.
I'm not a member of the Left or the Right, and once again, I stand here shaking my head while those two sides shout at each other, and all meaningful conversation gets lost in a cloying miasma of political dogma and cable news talking points. Same thing happens when we try to talk about gun violence, or the fiscal budget, or national defense, or health care, or anything else, and I'm sick of it. FOX News and MSNBC are nothing more than propaganda machines for their chosen alignments, and CNN - instead of seizing the moment and truly representing middle America - is about as informative and effectual as an episode of The Golden Girls.
And I'm pissed at the dismantling of our space program, because I really want to go to Mars and get the hell away from 90% of the people on this planet.
When I am installed as World Leader Supreme, there will be some fucking changes.
End of rant.
