McCain says he's for legalized segregation

Ok he didn't really say that, but if Senator McCain's vision of states deciding on the issue of gay marriage becomes a reality that is in essence what will happen. Normally I think McCain has some decent ideas, campaign finance for instance. This article says that McCain will have an issue with the GOP base in 2008 if he continues to buck the trend and vote against a proposed constitutional amendment banning gay marriage. If the states get to decide the issue what happens is legalized segregation, if you're gay and you want to get married you cannot live in Kansas, move to New York, or California, or Vermont, and that's a throwback to the days of separate but equal. This is why we have a federal government and federal law, to ensure that everyone gets treated the same, in all of these United States. Thanks for reading, rant away.
