The Righteous Rant Of The Day…

05 August 2010 @ 14:49

…comes courtesy of John Doe, Captain and Harbor Master over at Smash Mouth Politics.  In light of the judge’s decision in the Prop 8 case in California, John is fed up with those libertarians who seem quite willing to abandon all morality in government.  A highlight:

Here’s some news for you if you are one of those whiners: The so-cons did not start the fight out in California over same-sex marriage, the liberals and/or libertarians did. When they lost at the ballot box, first they demonized those who opposed them, and when that failed, they filed suit in federal court.

You’ve got the great weight of history against same-sex marriages. You’ve got biology. You’ve got the great moral thinkers throughout the ages. Then you’ve got flaming queers parading down the streets in rainbow T-shirts and boa feathers on your side. Look around. Sometimes it is instructive to see who are on your side. The same people who want to confiscate your hard earnings and have government-run your lives are also telling you that you must re-define “marriage” to suit their latest whims. Wake the f#ck up! You are on the wrong side.

Right on, brother, right on.

The whole argument in favor of same-sex marriage is an attempt to deny that A is A, that marriage is, by it’s core definition, the union of a man and a woman and that part of the reason for so uniting said man and said woman is for the procreation of children.  Unlike true conservatives who are not ideologues, libertarians are subscribers to a theory and system of thinking.  Ideology inevitably leads to taking ideas to their logical conclusions outside of reality because ideas are laboratory experiments.  Same sex marriage is one of the stops along the way to the end of opening marriage to every kind and type of combination — logic demands it…and soon the ideologues will, too.

    “Unlike true conservatives who are not ideologues, libertarians are subscribers to a theory and system of thinking.”

    Which only proves that you know nothing about libertarians. We’re no more uniform in our convictions than “orthodox” conservatives.

    You might know just as little about ideology. An ideologue need not have a philosophically unified set of views. He merely has to exalt his views, whatever they are, above the evidence for and against them. Many conservatives are absolutely doctrinaire about how to handle matters that history has proved, quite conclusively, should be approached in a different way.

    Try educating yourself a trifle, before you embarrass yourself again — and, incidentally, alienate the best allies “orthodox” conservatives have at this time.

    Just a trifle, mind you. I don’t want to ask too much of someone who’s found an agreeable scapegoat.

      Francis Porretto: I am preparing a response and will notify you when I have published it. I will gladly print your response to it, if you so desire.

    Bob my friend, Francis is right.

    The conservative movement seems to be completing its transfiguration into another version of the left. Partisan politics is one thing, but when you invent definitions of other people with no basis in reality, it’s embarrassing.

    It seems the conservative movement advocates nothing anymore. Freedom? Nope. Tear down the Leviathan? Nope. Just hate Democrats, Muslims, and anyone else who gets in the way … and cheerlead the Republican Ruling Class who spreads welfare, warfare, and burns the Constitution.

    Libertarians are the genuine torch keeper’s of our Founder’s liberalism. Conservatives are relatively new to the scene, only about 60 years old. It has helped grow the state every bit as much as the Democrats too. Not once has it beat it back. You may say otherwise, but the proof is in the pudding.

    I lose faith in the movement more each day. As I peruse the web, I realize I’m not the only one either. Then I stop by a site of someone I respect and consider a friend, and he’s spewing lies about libertarians? And thinks he’s accomplishing something?

    And btw on marriage … What right does the state have to get involved in marriage to begin with? Must the state regulate even the realm of God? Conservatives have become the Israelites who demanded a king. God was not pleased.
