Wherein Pino Is Official

I was debating the role of the state with Nickgb when he pointed out a fact that I need to correct:

Man, I think you are the only conservative/republican in the country who feels that marriage ought to be a federal issue

I need to set the record straight.  I got this in the mail just the other day:

Pino Voter ID

I am horribly dismayed that the abbreviation of Libertarian is LIB, however, that being the case, I am officially a Libertarian here in North Carolina.

Perhaps I need to rebrand as Tarheel Purple?

      I’ve always thought of myself as a republican and been guilty of some “team” stuff. However, I never was a registered republican so….

      Thought I would do this to shift the “team” dynamic and even get involved in local libertarian stuff.

  2. So glad you joined the LIBeral party. 😛

    I still stand by what I said though, you’d be hard pressed to find Libertarians who want to federalize marriage.

      Ugh!

      Yeah, it may be weird.

      However, to be fair, I only want the feds to regulate the gay marriage part of marriage. I don’t care if the states continue to manage the waiting time, license requirements, age, distance from relation etc etc.

      I think most Libertarians would agree that individuals should be allowed to enter into legal contracts without the government restricting them based on random quantifiers.

      • Exactly pino – marriage is a contract and entering contracts is basic to free people. If people want to add a religious element and have a religious ceremony, that’s fine. But it’s really a civil matter. And therefore, a civil rights matter.
