This is what everyone has been and will be talking about for the next week or two…
And this is what is actually going on in the real world.
I don’t mean to sound condescending to the cause for gay rights. I get it. I do think that the political correctness is being shoved down our throats (pun intended?) but I get the concept that they are who they are and they want to be treated as equals. My libertarian side says government should stay out of marriage altogether, but that’s another debate for another day.
My point here is the narrative. Gay rights was used as the distraction. Not in and of itself but the timing, the strategic development and climax just as the Trans Pacific Partnership slipped under the radar, below the attention of the masses who could have stopped it. I know that it’s not over yet, but it’s hard not to think we could have been more focused otherwise.
And for those reading who don’t understand what it is I apologize for the concise post. It’s a takeover, a power grab of the elite, a trade deal in name only. It piggy backs UN gun restrictions, pro-GMO foods, anti-freedom etc and so on. That’s another story for another day as well. But in any case, it got through because of the decoy, the distraction of an issue that has nothing to do with austerity or stopping the elite.
I’m ranting now, sorry for that. Good night and good luck, stay focused and stay strong.
