Bachmann on Marriage

Posted by courage On June - 26 - 2011

Okay here we go.. first allow me to say, I like Representative Michele Bachmann.  Continually I have seen her stand against big government and a return to Constitutional reasoning.  All of which fly in face of her most recent policy position on suggesting a Constitutional amendment which defines marriage as being between a man and [...]
