I. Is it fair to stop gays from marring?
This morning on TV they were discussing gay marriages. With my so called kooky and
extremist views I know it's a subject I should leave alone. But, I guess I'm too much of a
busybody advocate, and can't resist putting my foot in my mouth. However, I may surprise
some people on my real views on the matter. Actually I lump gay marriage, illegal
immigration, low morals, and many other issues all in the same gift bag of symptoms that
came with the creation of our welfare state.
I hate to be a spoil sport or rain on anybody's parade, but the sad fact is, all of the above
social issues are really unsolvable and will win out in the end. The reason why is, no amount
of just treating symptoms and ignoring the root cause is going to solve the problem. The
cause is our welfare state. Folks, stop! And think. Throughout history there has never been
a clamor for homosexuals to get married, until now.
The only survival need for any marriage in the first place is to provide a safe and stable
environment to birth and raise children until they can fend for themselves. Polygamy and
harems have been around from the beginning. The government has no business being in the
provider business in the first place. I have a heart too, I care about grandma, the sick and the
disable, but my wisdom and knowledge of history makes me want to help save this great
nation even after the day when this temporary welfare state is broke and can't help you.
When our currency becomes worthless what are grandma and the sick and the disabled
going to do? When there is no money to pay care takers what are grandma and the sick and
disable going to do? You tell me, when our food supply that is trucked long distance is
interrupted and we have almost no back up bartering capacity to survive what are grandma
and the sick and disable going to do?
You tell me, without a strong nuclear and extended family system when money becomes
worthless do you think caretakers are still going to take care of grandma and the sick and
disabled? You tell me, at the first sign of a real calamity that the grocery shelves won't be
cleaned? You tell me, that there won't be mass hoarding? You tell me, with the condition of
our low moral and family values who are going to respect other people or their property when
money is worthless?
You tell me, that there won't be bottle necks everywhere and food of fuel may not get
through? You tell me, as a mobile society there won't be mass killing for fuel? Sounds like
something out of science fiction doesn't it. Well, I'm the one that suppose to be the kook,
right. Okay, you just keep depending on this welfare state and it spending money like it is
going out of style and we'll just let history determine who is the real kook. One other thing for
sure is, if the US economy goes down the whole world economy goes down with it.
I never set out or volunteered to speak out like I'm doing. To me, I'm answering a call to duty
by some divine intervention force or something. I actually hate the lime light in anyway.
Below the surface deep down I'm still a neurotic insecure individual. A few times I have
dozed off on a job and awaken and for a fleeting second wonders what the hell are you doing
here, you will never amount to anything, you are unworthy, you don't deserve this job, you
are a fraud, quickly my rationality snaps back.
Sure, government as an employer must pay its employees, A bureaucracy has been around
almost as long as civilization. But, that is not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about
government playing daddy and a sugar daddy as that. That is what has destroyed the
nuclear family, the economy, our moral values, and our ability to barter and survive through
hard times. That itself is what makes our social problems unsolvable.
Government as a provider has all but destroyed the nuclear family and made it where a
spouse no longer needs to be the opposite sex. This whole gay marriage clamor is really
about spousal and other benefits that this welfare state provider has made so enticing. It's
only natural that everybody wants to get on a gravy train or ride a free horse. Why should it
be any different for gay people?
Why keep gays from the trough while so many others are slopping? Never mind how an
illegal immigrant kid got to your table, but, could you sit there and feast without allowing him
a crumb? So, I ask, is it fair to keep gays off the gravy train when so many others are ride,
ride, riding? As long as this super provider welfare state is in place and we refuse to
dismantle it, we might as well accept our fate because it comes with the territory.
We have foolishly thrown our moral armor away and ended up lost in a moral and social
jungle with many glaring eyes staring back at us in the darkness. A strong Christian camp
fire must be kept burning for us to ever find our way safely back home. Personally, I feel we
no longer as a nation have the wisdom, discipline, or the will necessary to make the hard
choices to save this great nation from doom.
I also believe there is still enough goodness about this great nation that God will not let it be
totally destroyed. Sure, through divine intervention he is going to take this great nation to the
brink with unheard of trials and tribulations. That is necessary to re-instill our
wisdom,discipline, and will necessary to survive, which we have lost. But, in the end, I don't
believe he will let this great predominant Christian nation perish.
Thy art with me. Glory be to God.
