It is great comedy to hear the secular, pro-gay left, so hostile to states’ rights in virtually every instance, suddenly discover the tyranny of centralized government. The newly minted protectors of local rule find themselves demanding: “Why should Washington dictate marriage standards for Massachusetts and California? Let the people of those states decide for themselves.” This is precisely the argument conservatives and libertarians have been making for decades! Why should Washington dictate education, abortion, environment, and labor rules to the states? The American people hold widely diverse views on virtually all political matters, and the Founders wanted the various state governments to most accurately reflect those views. This is the significance of the 10th Amendment, which the left in particular has abused for decades.
Too many Conservatives today are looking for another Ronald Reagan, when they need to be looking for another Barry Goldwater. What they’re failing to realize is that we have one, in Ron Paul (or Gary Johnson). In 1989, Goldwater stated that the Republican party had been taken over by a “bunch of kooks”. With morons like Santorum floating around, it’s hard to disagree.
