Liberalism insults their own intelligence when attempting to insult the intelligence of the opposition. Texas Democrats once again insults the intellectual levels of Governor Perry’s administration by insisting the Texas National Guard go ahead and process same sex marriage benefits for Guard members, in spite of an anticipated ruling by the States Attorney General on the issue.
There are sixteen Democrat state lawmakers calling on the Guard to go ahead, process the claims and don’t wait on Attorney General Greg Abbott’s decision. Surely, this would circumvent authority, since these are only lawmakers, out of session, who completely ignores the SCOTUS’s decision to leave in tact, states rights with regards to same sex marriages.
Major Gen. John Nichols, Texas Military Forces, did the right thing, according to the military code of conduct. When in doubt, ask, wait for the answer and proceed accordingly. Democrats are doing the wrong thing, based on campaign contributions and support, especially when you consider, the easy way out is for same sex married couples in the Guard is to travel to federal military bases to get this done.
It’s so simple and only complicated to those who think they are smarter than the rest of the state. The number of U.S. Military bases in Texas far exceeds those of National Guard units and just about covers the entire state, from Houston, to El Paso.
With that being said, why not, Democrats, provide the locations of U.S. military bases to these same sex couples, instead of pushing them to apply at a National Guard unit? It’s not like the Guard units are in their back yards, and as such, surely they have to travel in order to report for duty.
What’s the hurry Democrats? A mere 120 days is not really an eternity. Could your haste to make waste of a good crisis on behalf of your supporters be, if the Texas National Guard identifies same sex marriage, the state’s constitutional definition of what a marriage is, becomes null and void?
That’s what it is, a back door attack on the state’s constitution, as well as, it’s 10th Amendment rights. You sneaky little creatures, one would have to ask, who’s side are you on? The state’s, or campaign contributions?
