    'The current federal system of government in the United States is failing to meet its social contract obligations to the American people.' There is nothing closer to the truth than this statement. While some may argue that the government is following the guidelines of a social contract, many aspects of the government have outgrown their britches and taken over. With over fifteen thousand jobs up for the taking in the government it is hard to believe that the government comprised in the 18 th cen...

    There are a number of reasons opponents to gay marriage argue that it should not be legalized. First, certain religious interpretations maintain that gay marriage is sinful. Fortunately, our country is not a theocracy and public policy should not be based on any religion's values. If a person's religious convictions cause them to believe that gay marriage is wrong, that is personal to them, and that viewpoint should not be thrust onto others. Another argument against gay marriage is that it is s...

    AFTER GAY MARRIAGE, what will become of marriage itself? Will same-sex matrimony extend marriage's stabilizing effects to homosexuals? Will gay marriage undermine family life? A lot is riding on the answers to these questions. But the media's reflexive labeling of doubts about gay marriage as homophobia has made it almost impossible to debate the social effects of this reform. Now with the Supreme Court's ringing affirmation of sexual liberty in Lawrence v. Texas, that debate is unavoidable. Am...

    No one likes to be told what he or she can or cannot do. Parents do it to protect their children; bosses do it to direct people with their jobs. However, why are some people so focused and driven to control others they don't even know? People who oppose gay marriages fit into this category. People against gay marriages say that it is not natural to be a homosexual. Even by ignoring the biological belief that homosexuals are born with a different sexual orientation, this is still an absurd argum...

The first reason why same sex marriage sho...
