The Soviets thought they had equality, and welfare from cradle to grave, until the illusory free lunch of redistribution took its inevitable course, and cost them everything they had: first to go was their privacy and freedom, then on being ground down to an equality of poverty only, for many of them their lives as they tried to escape a life behind the Iron Curtain. In the common good, was found only slavery to the prison of each other's mind; instead of the caring state, they got the surveillance state to keep them in line. So why are we accumulating a national debt to build the slave state again in the West?

For the Record: Mark Hotchin Enters Month 21 of the Freeze. Same Sex Marriage ...
This type of issue is as easy as knowing that if two consenting adults want to marry each other, no one is harmed, so it's nobody else's business, certainly not politicians, or their electorates. For those politicians equivocating on this, then you are equivocating on giving adults something as simple as choice. What are you thinking? What makes you think you are fit to be our jailer? Get out of private, grown-up relationships; get out of our heads; get out of our lives. This is a country, not a kindy.
