Somebody explain this conundrum to me, please:
One of the basic tenets of conservatively-minded Americans is that there should be less government involvement in the daily lives of the public. Lowered taxes, relaxed regulations, privatization, and so on.
How, then, can a Conservative support any of the recently proposed or passed legislation surrounding marriage equality and reproductive health? How does legislating who I can marry or how I choose to reproduce (or not reproduce) serve the goal of limiting governmental involvement in my day-to-day life?
