When I received my latest e-mail from “Equality California,” (EqCA) the gay auxiliary to the Golden State’s Democratic Party, masquerading as a civil rights organization, its Executive Director Geoff Kors was all abuzz about “the critical fight for equality in California.” I wondered, as I often do when I hear about such pushes for “equality,” what exactly that critical fight entailed.
And lo and behold, the contents gave me a clue. His left-wing outfit is “sponsoring 13 pieces of groundbreaking legislation”. Huh? More legislation? How many laws do we need? How long has Kors been bragging about how many bills EqCA has shepherded through the state legislature? And still he’s got more up his sleeve?
Deeper in the e-mail, we learn Kors real agenda, keeping government growing and Republicans from winning election. This year, he says, they’ll be doing lots:
At the ballot box, we have an election that will determine whether we have a governor and legislature that will stand up for equality and oppose budget cuts that could threaten the health of our community. Electing a governor who supports full equality — and defeating a candidate who was a vocal Yes on 8 supporter — will be vital to our success in repealing Prop. 8.
Now, first will he please tell me what he means by “full equality.” And when will we know it’s been achieved so we can stop legislating?
At least the above paragraph does give us an idea what he means by “equality,” linking that notion to opposing budget cuts. In other words, “equality” is just a fancy name for big government. (Wonder if he has any plans for addressing our multi=billion dollar budget deficit.) No wonder he wants the state government to keep legislating. The more bills the Democratic legislature passes, the greater power they give to the state, the less freedom we have.
It’s the same thing with other words the left uses to describe themselves and their agenda. When they talk about progress, they mean greater government control. “Social justice” is achieved through state intervention.
If “equality” means greater government regulation of our lives, then it’s not what I seek nor what most gay people really want. We want to be left alone, free from state interference. But, those selling us equality aren’t interested in leaving us alone. In the name of progress and “social justice,” they want to cede greater power and devote more resources to government at all levels.
And that means more meddling in our live.
