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 woman. I can’t help but wonder who slipped her socialist Kool-Aid when she wasn’t looking? Socialist in the sense that her beliefs supersede common sense and a purist recognition as to what the fundamental concepts of the Constitution are about.
What exactly is the Constitution for? Well, if you’re Barack Obama it’s chuck full of negative liberties, a.k.a rights granted the America people through our humanity by God. Which according to the Obama world prevent him from creating the socialist Utopia which in theory may sound all comfy cozy but in the reality hasn’t worked ANYWHERE in the world. That’s is why he believes it to be negative.
Now enter Michele Bachmann, given her recent stated policy position, she must believe the Constitution is for constructing society according to her religious beliefs. Sure she tries to wiggle around it by stating:
…it’s also up to the states to decide whether they permit same-sex marriage.
After all, the family is the fundamental unit of government.
How is the family a fundamental unit of government? Seriously, isn’t that what aspects of the Tea Party are rallying against; intrusive government in to the very intimate fabrics of our lives? If Bachmann believes the family and government are intimately tied together then how can she rationalize her belief that Obamacare should be repealed? I mean come on, a healthy family and all should also benefit the government? Just how exactly are the family and government tied together? Outside of the abuse of children in the family unit, the government should have NO say as to what the family does.
