…Who’s life is it anyway?
The ‘governing’ Liberal Party of Canada gets its wish once again to ram yet another social engineering project down the throats of Canadians. Nothing new here. Traditionally the Liberals have considered themselves smarter, wiser and more enlightened than the unwashed masses of Canadian voters. And let us not forget that Liberals will sell themselves and the rest of us for a vote at the drop of a hat.
Having said that I must make one thing completely clear:
My observation throughout this long, long ‘debate’ about the subject is that the issue has never been about whether or not gay couples should live together, love together, share together, grow old together or bond together. Its only been about the use of a word …”marriage”, since those who are religiously devout have (for thousands of years) employed that word (from their various scriptures) to connote a relationship between a man and a woman in their God’s eyes.
I, your humble and lovable serf, am not against gay rights including their right to live together in any form of relationship they choose between them.
As I have been thinking about this whole debacle I’ve once again been faced with the obvious reality that Government considers itself too important and seeks to control more than it has any reasonable right to. This issue is a beautiful example as is heterosexual marriage. I’ll explain that with the following rhetorical questions:
Why do two people (gay or straight) require the government’s permission, or need to be governmentally licensed (for a fee, of course), to commit to each other in a ‘marriage relationship’?
Why would any relationship between two free will adults require government approval or licensing to be ‘legitimate’ in the first place?
Are not “permission” and “legitimacy” solely resident in the two individuals who are making a decision concerning their own lives?
Common Law (Anglo Saxon, not English) is the supreme law regardless of how governments over time have bastardized and subverted our natural rights under common law by writing statutes that serve only their own control objectives. That being said, the most legitimate form of ‘marriage’ is a common law marriage because it respects the natural, individual rights people have (but don’t often enough use or insist upon) to make fully legitimate decisions in their own lives that require nobody else’s input or permission …particularly the government’s.
Its important to say that just because government tells us they are in charge of something does not mean they have any right, let alone OUR PERMISSION, to do so. Remember those two words – Our permission – because we seem to have forgotten that it is we who tell government what it can, can’t, should or shouldn’t do …not the other way around. Ooops …I just remembered that we have been deprived of writing or collectively approving a constitution here in Canada … we’ve just accepted what politicians have written for us …which is mostly for themselves! Read some of my past posts for more details about that.
So here we are, the social engineers of the Liberal Party of Canada are going to shove something down the whole country’s throat which rightfully they have no reason or right to be controlling, let alone legitimizing in the first place! Unfortunately it may turn out that the net effect of this is that gay couples will find themselves ostracized and isolated by many Canadians who should more correctly be directing their displeasure, or even anger, at the social engineers in Ottawa!
Now … we’ll see if the Liberal Party of Canada is equally anxious to pass “Carley’s Law”, or “Reagan’s Law” to uphold the rights of children as aggressively as they are upholding the ‘rights’ of gay couples!!
Til next time I get PO’d at Ottawa!
