"We Need to Limit the Government and Get It Out of Our Lives!" (unless it's drugs, gay marriage, abortion, religion, etc...)Submitted by Reconstituter001 on Thu, 07/04/2013 - 08:03
If your goal is to limit the power that the government has over us, it's probably not in yours (or anyone's) best interest to beg for government intervention in other peoples private lives.
It kinda hurts the argument :/
Whether it's drugs, gay marriage, abortion, or christianity...it's none of ANYONE'S business what people do in their private lives unless it is hurting someone else.
The fact is that people want to smoke some pot after a long day without being sent to prison, people want to marry who they love without seeking permission, women want to manage their bodies without politicians prying in, and christians want to practice their religion without interference.
And whether we agree or not on any of these issues, we just can't expect to keep the government out of our private lives unless we ask it to get out of our neighbors private lives too.
