Why is it, if Roe v Wade is the law everywhere and the states can't overturn it, then why is Heller not the law everywhere and some folks say that they can make laws that affect the right to keep and bear arms?
Let me get a few things off my chest.
Gay marriage. My opinions have changed over the past several years and I've come to the conclusion that I don't care. Not one whit. It seems to me that the best way for the gay marriage proponents to gain the legal right to marry is to attack it on 9th and 14th amendment grounds. If I were pulling a lever in California next week over Proposition 8, I'd probably vote to allow gay marriage. I don't think it's going to affect me one whit, and if it makes someone happy, then why not? I see it as basically a privacy issue, and the Republic isn't going to come tumbling down if gays are allowed to marry.
Remember Joe the Plumber? Well, as soon as he asked Obama a question, folks were digging into his files looking for dirt. I understand that someone accessed criminal and driving records to discredit him. That's against the law as I understand it, and someone needs to go to jail over that. It ain't right and cops know that you can't access those files for political reasons. That's another privacy issue.
