    Its not a Southern State, they didn't even consider secession IIRC. However, every state has some southerners (Once I saw a rebel flag in Pennsylvania and said OH YES!)

    Oh, I thought you meant Northern-Southern.

    I think Ohio is close to the middle with a slight conservative slant.

    Incidentally, those rebels who make you say 'Oh yes' were rising against the constitutional government… :rolleyes:

    Well, I was merely pointing out the inconsistency between his opposition to supposedly unconstitutional actions and his support for rising in arms against the government which is held up by said Constitution.

    Which means that freaking Mexico, with all it's comical sombreros and crippling gang problems, is ahead of the United States on this issue. They've got gay marriages in the capital, recognized everywhere, and we've got the DOMA, a law so blatantly unconstitutional it's almost funny. Naturally, no court dares to strike it down, for fear of being seen as "legislating from the bench".

    We suck. :(

    Cry of frustration/rhetorical point, not a serious argument.

    Doesn't the US Pledge of Allegiance stand for "liberty and justice for all"? Is that qualified "except gay people and people with crippling health conditions who can't afford health insurance"?

    I also thought that Lincoln was "dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal".

    Oh. I find that the easiest way to avoid being frustrated is to not get invested in politics. :p

    Even if God did create the world in six days and fake all archaeological and physical evidence for his own selfish reasons, all men should have been created equal, no?

    Again, created equal. Doesn't mean "all men are equal".
