Laws like SB 1070, DOMA and those prohibiting cannabis are as immoral as the Jim Crow laws of the old south. People have minds of their own as well as a moral compass. I know looking around the world it might be hard to believe, but never the less people almost always know the right thing to do, sometimes they just don’t do it. The main exception to this is the 4% or so that are sociopaths, unfortunately they do seem to hold a disproportional amount of power. Most people though do not have this problem. In many cases religion serves to distort that moral compass and we end up with crap like DOMA. These laws designed to oppose the natural tendency of humans; cannabis is a better recreational intoxicant than alcohol, adults should be allowed to build a life with whomever they choose, people just trying to live their lives are not responsible for what happen when they were two. Common sense understanding yields to the will of tyrants but common morality guilds true democracy. Do our laws reflect our collective moral compass or do they reflect the will of the office holder? Here in AZ we passed medical cannabis in 2010 yet our elected officials have spent two years imposing their will over that of the voters. When imposing SB 1070 on Arizonans they espouse the opposite views they do for medical cannabis removing any thought of a principled position, other than the principle that their will should rule.
I suggest we demand Moral Laws from Washington.
