Letters from the Lunar Outpost

Courage and modesty are the most unequivocal of virtues, for they are of a kind that hypocrisy cannot imitate; they too have this quality in common, that they are expressed by the same color.
- Goethe, German Poet, Dramatist, Novelist, and Scientist (1749-1832)

Obama Bill of RightsThere were ten amendments to the United States Constitution, and of all the ten amendments in the Bill of Rights, not a single one of those amendments were as consice and as plainly spoken as the Tenth:

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

The wording of the tenth amendment could not be any more cut and dried than that. It couldn’t have been spelled any more plainly than that, if it’s not specifically laid out in the United States Constituion, leave it to the states. Guess what? Not single word in the constitution even comes close to addressing who can and cannot enter into a contract of marriage. What a ground-breaking revelation for our constiutuional scholar of a president to finally take notice of this in leaving gay marriage to the states to decide.

Let’s read it again, because I love the tenth amendment in its forthrightness and unambiguity:

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

Then along came Franklin D. Roosevelt, the closest thing America has ever had to having a real-life dictator. This man was so consumed with becoming an all-powerful tyrant that the pesky annoyance of a Supreme Court which declared his new deal proposals unconstitutional convinced him to try to cirvumvent the checks and balances our founding fathers devised by trying to stack the nine-member Supreme Court with three additional judges friendly to his agenda. Hey, the nine judges won’t get on board, let’s make it a twelve-judge Supreme Court then! Stoke of genius marked by pure evil.

Thankfully, this wanna-be American Hitler failed, but he would not be the last president to besmirch and denigrate a Supreme Court which dared stand in his way.

FDR’s “court-packing plan” to create a puppet Supreme Court ultimately failed, but where the Imperial President did succeed in trashing the Constitution, was with a little byline called the Commerce Clause, which gave Congress control over all: “Commerce with foreign Nations, and among the several States, and with the Indian tribes“. With this one little footnote, he was able to trash the plain-spoken text of the Tenth Amendment so that just about anything could be mandated, regulated and taxated by the power hungry Overlords of the Federal Government. And since the days of FDR, our centralized government loving politicians have been busy at work, twisting and perverting that Commerce Clause to destroy the Tenth Amendment and make the Federal Government the Lord, God and King of every aspect of our lives since.

"The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion." U.S. Constitution, Article 4, Section 4Article 4, Section IV of the United States Constitution says, “The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion.” When our own Federal Govermnent fails miserably to protect the borders of the citizens of Arizona from the chaos and the lawlessness and all the anchor babies being funder on the taxpayer’s dime, the Obama administration, instead of seeing the crisis Arizona faces, instead of increasing it’s efforts to live up to its constitutional obligations and applauding the state of Arizona for trying to enforce the laws of the land that our Federal Government has so miserably have failed to uphold, instead of appreciating the states rights of Arizona trying to defend their own borders by checking the status of people pulled over just the same as you’d check license and insurance, instead the Obama Administration tries to stymie the efforts of Arizona and file lawsuits against that sovereign state’s attempts to check the for papers of people in a state completely overrun by illegal invaders.

If a family was killed driving over a bridge while it collapsed, in the same way the government would be held negligent, I truly belive people should sue the Feds for their negligence in failing to protect the American people from lawless illegals who cross the border and kill innocent people. Your job is to protect the borders, assholes. Are you kidding me? Eric Holder and the Federal Government are actually trying to sue Arizona for trying to take care of a job they have failed miserably to take of themselves?

How about states taking it upon themselves to check the ID of voters when it was proven just how easy it would be to walk into a polling place in DC and claim you’re the Attorney General of the United States of America himself, Eric Holder and a cast a ballot in his name? Where is the love for the Right of the States to monitor their own elections with a common sense and moderate Voter ID law? No one ever cried when the states said you need a little ID if you want to drive on the road or apply for the welfare.

So all of a sudden, the same Barack Obama whose Justice Department is suing nearly a dozen states in America for wanting to make sure people are who they say they are when they vote, these Federal Overlords suing states left and right for trying to protect their borders, all of a sudden the president of the Imperial Federalocrisy is now a states rights kind of guy?

There's nothing the United States Constituton that Even Hints About Gay Marriage - God Bless States RightsFor the first time in Barack Obama’s life, when it comes to gay marriage, now he’s MR. STATES RIGHTS?

What a fucking coward, dude. IT ALREADY IS A STATES RIGHTS ISSUE!!! HAVEN’T YOU NOTICED WE’VE HAD HALF THE STATES IN AMERICA PUT IT TO A REFERENDUM ON THE BALLOT WITH 12 IN FAVOR AND AND 38 OPPOSED? As Ellen Degeneres and Doogie Howser gush with praise for your courageous stand, what exactly is it that have you stood out for? The status quo? Nothing has changed since today and yesterday and the day before! Should we give some well-earned pat on the back to the courageous perpetual camaigner with not a word to the fact that you punted the decision on votes for gay marraige for all 38 states whose votes he needs to try to win re-eledtion? Grow a par of gonads you gelding, if you believe gay marriage is right, stop being a states right advocate for the first moment in your life. Ask Michelle if you can borrow the pair of balls she tucked safely away in that little velvet box, quit being a eunuch and take an uncalculated political stand for one time in your life.

Dead Fetus with Spike to the BrainAnd as long as you’re beginning this new life as a champion for states rights, why don’t you come out and tell the truth about Roe v. Wade, that there’s nothing in the Constitution about the right to privacy that can be contorted to make allowance for the killing of a fetus in a woman’s womb. Abortion shouldn’t be some bogus federal mandate, it shoud be left up to the states, after all, as a constitutional scholar, even many of your most pro-choice of fetus killing friends have to admit there’s nothing in the Constitution about right to privacy that comes anywhere near to endorsing early termination of human beings in the womb.

Come on Mr. States Rights Man, all this bullshit that was handed down from the Supreme Court, you know they stepped way out of bounds in Roe v. Wade, even a lot of pro-choicers if you take them aside in a moment of whispered candor, they’ll tell you straight up that the “right to privacy” was the shakiest grounds imaginable for legalizing abortion. If you’re honest about it, abortion is 100% under the guise of “powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution” and “reserved to the States respectively.” If it means having a national debate, 50 states forced to vote their conscience and if that results in a few women having to cross state lines to kill the growing life inside their wombs, so be it.

You really think people are going to buy it as your sycophantic lovers in the media say how courageous you are when nothing has changed, the only thing you’d come out and said is that you think the states should decide, as they have been for the last ten years, and yes, now you can try to take credit by supporting the 12 states who support gay marriage, but being the political prostitute you are, you have said nothing for the other 38 states you’re not trying to alienate in an election year.

Why don’t you take another couple courageous stands and tell American how you support leaving it up to the states to decided their own laws for euthanasia or medical marijuana. Gutsy call.

Can’t wait to see all you Obama-lovers fawning over Obama’s bravery on display as he speaks at the Democrat Convention in North Carolina later this year!

What a joke, for the first time in his life, Barack Obama is leaving it to the piddly little states to figure out instead of imposing a giant mandate from the ivory towers of Washington, D.C. itself.

5 Responses to Barack Obama, Gay Marriage and States Rights

  • Obama’s decision is disingenuous to the Gay community because he felt compelled to say he was in favor of Gay marriages. There is such a thing as making a decision when it is inconvenient, and he had many opportunities over the past three years. What I find interesting is the Hollywood establishment patting him on the back all the while that establishment is punishing openly Gay performers, and warning closeted ones to remain “tucked in”. I came across this cartoon and howled

    The Flip Side of Gay Marriage

    Great post, Mike!

  • Wasn’t there a time when states voted that blacks couldn’t vote? Or that women couldn’t vote?

  • Yes, and when the Constitution did not live up to it’s own words and women and blacks had no vote, it was indeed an issue that needed to be redressed by an amendment to the Constitution, but we’re talking about the right for gays to marry, which isn’t even hinted at in the Constitution, just like abortion, just like euthanasia, just like whether a cop can pull you over and add citizenship papers to the request for an drivers license and insurance, just like whether a polling place can verify your ID to make sure you are who you say you are when you vote. These issues all were never hinted at by the Constitution, so I find it laughable that the same Federal Government which seeks to impose it’s will on every state in the land wherever it sees fit suddenly has a president who has seen the light when it comes to states rights.

    Oh how courageous, Mr. Perpetual Campaigner, how courageous of you to come out in support of gay marriage, and call it a states rights issue WHICH IT HAS BEEN SINCE THE FIRST STATE PUT IT ON THE BALLOT. Not one single word spoken against the 38 states who either have not addressed it or actively voted against it. I have one word for that – COWARDICE.

  • Of course these things were not hinted at in the constitution by the founding fathers…neither was the internet. Remember the civil war over state’s rights? It wasn’t that southern states wanted their right to keep slavery…it was that they wanted the federal government to make slavery a national institution and therefore their slaves that runaway to non-slave styates have to be returned. As it was a slave going into a non-slave state was not seen as property and did not have to be returned. Ironic that states want the rights to choose but want the feds to tell everyone else to recognize their choices as moral and ok. Same with gay marriage issue.
