I'm sorry but it's another domestic US politics post :D
I have a question for all of you tea party goers and conservatives here!
One of the themes of the Tea Party protests is limited government. Do you understand it as only limit on fiscal involvement of government in our lives, or does it include the limit on social involvement as well?
If you are for personal liberty and constitutionally limited government, do you support gay rights? If not, why not? Do you support gay marriage? If you don't, would you support gay civil union/partnership with all the rights straight married couples get? And, again, why not?
And my liberal friends, have you ever had a discussion about gay rights/marriage with your conservative counterparts? Have you asked them these questions?
