Roger L. Simon » How Social Conservatives Are Saving Liberalism (Barely)

No one is going to be happy here. SoCons who continue to press this issue on the political (not the personal or religious) stage have to realize that they are damaging many of us who have other concerns domestic and foreign, many of which we would probably agree on more easily.

This is a great moment.  A seriously smaller government is a real possibility with electoral victories in 2014 and 2016.  Let’s not jeopardize them by emphasizing an issue more properly, and unquestionably more successfully, dealt with in the private realm.

Their religion tells them they have to use the state to make homosexuality illegal, because what good is a state if it can’t enforce their religious precepts on everybody else?

So stop trying to confuse them with reason.   They’re not going to change, but eventually they will probably die off.  And they may take the GOP as currently constituted with them.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Unfortunately, time buries All. As those of us who lived in times when there was substantial freedom, die off, We are replaced by assholes who have no idea of what freedom truly is. The degenerate Christian, and the degenerate marxist, and the degenerate nanny-staters, are becoming the over-whelming majority. Our only hope is one Big Fucking Shit Storm! It can’t hit the fan soon enough.
