Become a Constitutionalist and not a Democrat or Republican!

THIS IS NOT A POLITICAL POST!

This is a post for tolerance and acceptance based on common ground.

We may disagree on many things, but if you agree with me that the Constitution is the basis for how our Government should function, then we can agree on more than you might think. For example:

– Why is the government involved at all when 2 people want to commit their

lives to each other.. ANY 2 People no matter sexual orientation. Does the Constitution say that people have to be Married? NO! Get the government our of our personal relationships and get Marriage out of the government.

– Why is the government involved in what we eat? Shouldn’t free thinking adults be able to decide what they want to eat or drink? Does the Constitution say that the government can regulate the food you put in your mouth or what you drink?

The Constitution clearly states what the Federal Government is tasked with and what they can do.. and it clearly states that any powers not clearly given to the Federal Government are reserved to the states. If the citizens of Colorado want to walk down the street smoking a big doobie.. and they pass that law, then its up to the state. The Constitution doesn’t give the Federal Government the right to regulate behavior. I may disagree with what you say or do, but under our Constitution, you have the right to do it.

As Thomas Jefferson said ” “But it does me no injury for my neighbor to say there are twenty gods, or no god. It neither picks my pocket nor breaks my leg.” and this applies to all beliefs and behaviors… if what you believe or do meets this test than you should be free to do it.

This doesn’t mean that I will stop being passionate about what I believe in, but it does mean that I am willing to discuss where we agree and move forward from there.
