Why I’m proud to say I’m voting no in the same sex marriage plebiscite.
Ok, so, Australia is currently going a little crazy about a plebiscite to provide the politicians with some indication of whether Australian citizens in their majority prefer to accept, or not, people of the same sex being permitted to marry each other. This is being referred to as the same sex marriage, or SSM, plebiscite. A plebiscite, for those of you who don’t know, is when the citizens of a nation who are eligible to vote, do so with the intention of deciding something affecting the nation and its people. Whether the politicians obey the outcome of this plebiscite, and the will of the people, is another matter. They may decide to completely ignore the plebiscite and form some legislation intended to appease the mainstream media and the minority lobbies.
As an example of how insane this matter is making the already intellectually bankrupt Australian people, check out the reaction to one young lady simply stating on her own webpage that it’s ok to vote no:
Canberra contractor sacked for ‘vote no’ Facebook post
A SMALL-BUSINESS owner has sacked a staff member who came out in support of the “no” campaign in the same-sex marriage postal plebiscite.
Madlin Sims, who runs a party entertainment company in Canberra, said she was taking a stand on the issue, likening it to employing a staff member who posted racist material online.
So this small business owner decided to fire someone, to end someone’s source of income, merely for voicing the opinion that in a democratic process in a democratic nation, it was ok to vote no, given the two options yes and no. In this democratic process, she has stated that any option other than that she supports is actually equivalent to racism, and that is sufficient reason for her to cut off someone’s source of income and potentially render them homeless.
Yes, that is how intellectually and morally bankrupt Australians have become. The state of our democracy has deteriorated to the extent that only those who support one ideology are permitted to have jobs. Yeah, that’s right. It’s Fascism. Madlin Sims, the business owner mentioned in the quoted article, is a Fascist.
Australians are also stupid because they actually want a government to control such things. Only a moron would want that. The government should not be involved with marriage at all. It should be up to individuals whether they wish to be married. It should be up to churches or others to perform marriage ceremonies as they wish, for whomever they wish. There is simply no reason for any government to be involved in such matters. To actually want a government to interfere in one’s private life requires a magnitude of stupidity which can not reasonably be attributed to a truly conscious, thinking being.
But back to the Fascist Madlim Sims and her ilk: For the very reason that such morally bankrupt, intellectually retarded and repugnant vermin want to screw over anyone with whom they disagree, I am proud to say openly that I will be voting no. I will of course be voting yes, due to my firm belief that all citizens should be precisely equal before the law. But I am stating publicly, at work and elsewhere, that I will be voting no.
