Gay Marriage Green Cards; Government's Job To Defend Relationships--Part 2

I normally ignore people that are just being dicks for the sake of being dicks, which has nothing to do with this subject. I hear some suggest that the way other countries handle this situation, is irrelevant. But how is it not to the point that most of the East (the Buddhists especially) more efficiently handle cultural strife better than the US? And I state that as a qualified authority without need for "facts" of others in that I lived there, studied and worked there and traveled extensively, personally experiencing and observing the kindness firsthand.

I'm embarrassed to be an American when otherwise macho Australians question our ability to deal with the gay issue fairly as they have. When Canadians with whom I have worked, claim the mantle of "freer nation," I simply agree. When Scandinavians, Brits, Francs, the Dutch laugh at us for letting religionists hold up millennial traditions of hate as "sacrosanct" over our rights of privacy, I bow my head humbly to their politically progressive superiority.

We need to stop pretending to be the land of freedom when we repress freedom to a greater extent than any 1st world nation--ie percentage of population in prison, most for victimless crimes of self-expression (drug use). Lest we forget, people have in our recent history been imprisoned for fucking someone in the ass and a President was impeached but not tried and removed, for failure to resist a blowjob. Stop your semantic, petty arguments, your masturbatory exercise of flawed logic and start taking action in defense of the basic human rights to love a person of our choosing and to insist our government defend those rights by encouraging coupling and harmonious relationships by providing incentives like Green Card marriage.

It is not enough to simply say you're married and suggest the government shouldn't be involved. Of course they should, not for permission or approval, but for protection of rights. It is essential for gay partners of different countries to have cross immigration right in order for their relationships to thrive.

If you question this or even oppose it through silence and apathy, don't be surprised if someday, one of these invisible minorities "accidentally" pricks you with an AIDS infected needle or simply beats the fuck out of you in his/her righteous indignation at your position. And yes, there are plenty of gays and lesbians who are more of a man than you and can, in fact kick your ass when you offend their mates. To sit back and deprive someone of something so basic, is a passive aggressive, arrogant attack, and one attack deserves another.

If you oppose the government defending personal relationships, say so, and stand up to the anger you will rightly create. Try depriving straights of the right to immigrate on the basis of marriage or to get married on the basis of loving relationships and see what happens. Even companies have the right to sponsor people for visas when they "love them" for profit's sake. We certainly hear them fighting for that right.

Whether we like it or not, the government is the one that enforces immigration. We can't "get them out of this business." Even Libertarians see this as one of the primary purposes. Unless of course, we just eliminate the concept of borders altogether, the government must change the law to allow domestic partners from different countries, to immigrate on that basis.
