Now that we have seen what a disaster that conservative policies do to the money supply, it's time we took a look at what *else* they love to spend taxpayers' money on.
First, any law prohibiting gay marriage is unconstitutional on its face. This is because the entire reason for the laws is to define marriage as "between one man and one woman." Why? Because God said so (or so they invoke). Well I have news for you. It is illegal in this country to make anyone conform to any religion, and it is time we stopped spending tax monies on these laws that will ultimately fail the test of time. P.S. I do not see any repercussions or any increased chaos in straight marriages since Massachusetts legalized gay marriage - could it be that gay marriage does not "destroy" households and corrupt children as conservatives love to assert? Hmm.
Second, any law prohibiting anyone from any medical treatment/procedure is unconstitutional on its face. If a terminally ill patient in pain wants to speed up the death process a little bit, who are we to deny this? Why would we deny this? Are we masochistic enough to want to inflict torture onto sick people? It appears that we are. No one that I know of has ever defined the euthanasia bans as torture, so let me be the first.
Also, any law that prohibits any woman from obtaining a legal abortion is unconstitutional on its face. Last I heard, the federal government has no authority on anyone's physical personhood, and should not be able to force any woman to carry any fetus to a full-term if she so chooses to refuse to do so. Period, the end. While I am at it, the idea that insurance carriers will pay for Viagra but not birth control is the ultimate example of conservative hypocrisy in the entire nation, in my humble opinion.
Finally, the age-old conservative premis that the Republican way of governing has been based on since the party was hijacked by fundamentalists, namely, that if you are down-and-out it is your fault and you should have worked a little harder, is completely false. The idea that basic human needs are not provided to all the members of our society, whether or not they are deemed to have any "value" to society, is immoral and criminal, in my humble opinion.
They are down, and it is time to kick them in the shins as they have done to progressives as often as they possibly could. Someone please stand up with me and call it like it is!
