landmark decision by some U.S. District Chief Judge Vaughn R. Walker a gay Republican, ruled that the recent passed Proposition 8 recently passed overwhelmingly by the voters of California banning same sex marriages in the sunshine state. While both sides believe that an appeal will ultimately send this case to the Supreme Court for a final decision.
So what's our reason for writing this post? For us the gay marriage issue is secondary to the logical disconnect in our national debate on the role of the Federal government in relation to personal freedom vs. government intrusion and by extension Federal rights vs. State rights.
What we find totally bizarre is that the Federal government says that an individual has the right to chose the person they want to spend the rest of their life with but can't choose their own level of care to prolong that same life with that significant other.
Left ot their own devices our lawmakers and judges will create a patchwork of laws that has neither logic nor precedents as an underpinning. Now this may be okay for some who are able to find that special loophole to pursue their happiness, for most of us it will only be a matter of time before we inadvertently violate some illogical fiat and have all that we own, love and worked for snatched away.
Okay we're off our soapbox....
