    Gay Marriage = POTUS Distraction issue


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     TeaParty432 believes that President Obama's May 9 statement in support of same-sex marriage was more of a political calculation than a sincere statement of his beliefs. 'Marriage is not a civil right, as rights are granted to individuals not groups of people. Rights are the personal and individual aspects of our life that do not require the permission or interaction of another person to carry out,' he said. 'We have bigger issues that truely do affect us all than worrying about regulating marriage.'

    - jmsaba, CNN iReport producer

    With this country closing in on 16 trillion in debt, multiple undeclared, unconstitutional, unsustainable wars at hand, massive loss of liberty at the hands of the continued Patriot Act, NDAA, HR 347, potential CISPA, The POTUS comes out with his proclaimation to supporting Gay Marriage... Government should not be in the business of regulating marriage in the first place. Article I Section 8 of the constitution states that the federal government should act to provide for the General Welfare of the people... Marriage is not a general welfare activity. This is just yet another distraction to keep people from recognizing the need to fight our tyrannical government on the real issues at hand like fighing the Federal Reserve!!
