[Note: This blog entry was submitted to several California newspapers for publication last week. While it addresses a “state issue,” I believe that the sentiments expressed herein are also applicable to the presidential campaign]

Since his election to office, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has carefully cultivated his image as a “moderate,” plopping himself down in the muddled middle of every issue — often to the detriment of the very Californians he’s sworn to serve. In no case is that more true than with respect to issues of family and marriage.

In 2005, Governor Schwarzenegger vetoed a bill which would have recognized same-sex marriages in California, citing an inapplicable referendum result (Proposition 22, which applied to marriages solemnized outside California and which is void due to its conflict with the US Constitution’s “Full Faith and Credit” clause). He matched that veto with a pledge to uphold the state’s current “domestic partnerships” scheme. Now he’s making the same promise again versus AB 43.

This is the “middle” that Governor Schwarzenegger stands astride: Not slavery, just segregation. Not extermination, just “second class citizenship.”

There are two sides to marriage, and neither of them are the government’s business.

The
LP annual report
we wrote about earlier is now available online.

For the last few days, the buzz around the national office has been about the responses to the 2006 Libertarian National Committee Annual Report, 2006 Adventures in Liberty. Most of our members have now received the report. As the mail has been a bit inconsistent lately, some of you might be receiving your copy sometime over the next few days.

We’ve now placed our annual report online for those of you who aren’t yet LP members.

The report covers our many accomplishments of 2006 and outlines our goals for 2007. Enjoy!
