    but have zero problem with "equality" when it comes to some people having money taken from them and other having money given to them. That's some equality lulz

    Personally I don't thing that sex between two adults is anyone's business but theirs. On the other hand I don't think you should have ANY rights based on who you have sex with.

    Gay guys have the same right to mary a woman that I do. That's equality.

    They'd have to renounce their citizenship too, because along with North Korea, the USA is one of 2 places in the world that tax your income (labor) when you make money outside of the country's borders.

    Care to explain that logical fallacy further?

    I'm hardcore conservative and favor gays having equality.

    I favor them having "equality" too. I favor government getting out of the marriage game completely. What I'm saying is that you frequently hear modern Democrats crying foul because gay people can't get married and straight people can, but you never hear them cry foul because some people are forced to contribute to the welfare state, while others are not made to contribute but only receive. IMO no welfare for anyone unless everyone contributes equally and everyone gets equal benefits, regardless of need.

    No one is forced to pay taxes.

    you have the freedom to leave.


    This country asks the people who benifit to pay the cost of running the government.


    if they dont want to the are free to leave.


    I pay taxes.

    I get the benifit of roads and schools along with many other great infrastructure investiments.


    if you dont want to pay for them then you can leave and allow the people who do pay for them to benifit from their investiment in the country
