The sanctity of marriage was ruined a long time ago, and mostly by straight people.

It's the priciple, they claim we have a spending problem, but they find ZERO reason to limit spending that suits their agenda.

Hah, good point. Find it so hilarious that there's a "defense of marriage" act when divorce numbers are ridiculously high. Breeders (c Theokhoth) ruined marriage, not homosexuals.

This is like me being on a diet and you b*tching because I snuck half a cake crumb. If this wasn't about gay marriage then no one would give a f *ck.

The Huffington Post still has an electoral college map on the right side? :|

I'm pretty sure that's not fiscal conservatism...

Goddamnit, the Republicans (or social conservatives actually) need to focus on more important issues such as the economy and foreign policy and stop focusing on social issues. They're NOT going to win on stopping abortion, stopping gays from marrying, and stopping drug use. It's going to be their downfall.

However, I do say that the Republican Party will be friends to the gay community in around 50 years. I mean, if blacks became friends to the Democrats, anything is possible.

The Defense of Marriage Act is federal law, no?

It's funny cuz I remember Republicans whining about Obama's new bus claiming that every extra dollar spent is irresponsible. The cost of the bus? 1 million dollars.

They complain about spending...and then the House Republicans do this....what a joke.

It's not not really the amount that bothers me, its the fact that the Federal Government is funding a organization that is actively working against the equal rights of all people, it's 2013 this shouldn't even be a issue.

I highly doubt that most Republicans actually give a sh!t about spending. Republicans branding themselves as fiscally responsible is a sham that too many Americans buy into. It's pretty ridiculous that someone like Paul Ryan was actually seen as a defecit hawk.

#17 Posted by Yusuke420 (2793 posts) -

None of the fiscal conservatives are bothering with this post because the republican party is undefensible. I litterally can't wait until the democrats hold both legislative bodies and the white house again because we won't have to squander it on attempted healthcare reform and focus on more important things like infrastructure and economic stimulus.

0.000001% of the current deficit. Not including unfunded liabilities.

Nah, come on man, spending even more money on a vastly over bloated military is fiscally responsible, right? .....right?

Doesn't matter. Unless they have spending cuts for these 3 million dollars, they are only adding to the deficit.

When the POTUS or any democrat in congress makes this arguement, it doesn't matter to the Republicans, all they scream is SOCIALISM@!!!!

I remember in the last election, the funding of PBS was a huge ass deal because it "added" to the deficit despite it being only a very, and I mean VERY, small part of it. The hypocrisy never fails to amaze me.

Waste of money and time. focus on the economy and jobs. Let people live their lives the way they want to.

Neither can I, because when the US starts sinking for real I sure as hell don't want any debate on who the captain was.

Point is, they are supposed to defend federal law. You just don't like it because it goes against your views.

No, the executive branch is supposed to enforce and defendfederal law. The difference is that the level of enforcement and defense isn't specified, ergo no enforcement/defense fulfills that requirement.

So your political preference has nothing to do with it, but you're bashing a particular political party en masse? Makes sense. :?

Not without (supposedly) spending cuts to go along with it.
