Is a federal marriage amendment (FMA) a conservative thing to do? Isn’t that government interfering where it should not be interfering? There are a million things more important than FMA. The FMA is never going to be passed and it should not be passed. Let the states do as they wish. If California and New York want to bless gay marriage, so be it. If Utah wants to reject gay marriage (unless there are three or more partners), so be it.p>I would rather focus on: br> * Education (vouchers) br> * Supreme Court justice nominations (need a tight interpretation of the Constitution, no judicial activism) br> * Economy (reduce taxes and reduce fed spending br> * War on running dogs of Islamic hegemony br> * Energy self sufficiency (nuclear power, conservation, mass transportation) br> * Doing more business with our buddies and less business with China br> — unsigned /p>
Checks and balances as laid out in the constitution will no longer work (as though they ever did). An overactive court can subvert society faster than the people can get an amendment through (if they could at all).p>By the way, why should the people have to fight to maintain the status quo? Doesn’t the constitution place the burden on the advocate of change to sell it to the electorate via the legislatures and/or the amendment process? br> — Gordon Paravano br> Sedona, Arizona /p>

In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
