    Are you talking about a bakery or an individual?
    When was the last time you saw a bakery go to church?

    I would be more of a statement if we all agreed to pay cuts to help our most needy right?

    That has nothing to do with the 14th amendment.  The 14th amendment just assures equal protection under the law.
    It has nothing to do with cakes

    If they are also taxed more wouldn't that essentially be a pay cut?

    Where did the 90% marginal tax rate come from?  No one has proposed that to my knowledge and to implement some of Sanders' ideas I don't think would require that drastic a tax increase.

    Pay down deficit, get us to a surplus until we can actually afford tax cuts or new programs IMO.

    Good article on the topic and why SCOTUS ruling will likely not apply

    It is a fair question, but I think a big difference is that polygamy is a conscious action whereas homesexuality is a born trait

    14th doesn't trump 1st, it upholds it.  14th amendment is not what you are complaining about

    Has anyone proposed a law on an outright ban of the confederate flag?  Is there a law banning the use of a Confederate flag on cakes?
    We were talking about the 1st amendment right?

    I took the www.isidewith.com survey and I agreed with Bernie Sanders on 95% of the issues (although there were nuanced differences in many of the questions where we had similar responses)
    But here is the thing with Bernie Sanders that I need to know more about.  I like and agree with a lot of his ideas.  Things like investment in infrastructure and tuition free college are great ideas.  I am not 100% sold on single payer healthcare, but am for a public option.  But Sanders wants Medicare for all single payer system.
    But I have the same question I have for Rand Paul's tax policy.  How do we pay for all this?  That is likely at least a trillion dollars in new or expanded programs.  Where does the money come from?
    I am all for raising taxes on the wealthy and closing corporate loopholes, but I view it more as a deficit reducing measure moreso than a vehicle for more or expanding costly programs.
    I want to support Bernie Sanders, but I am interested to see more of how his platform mechanisms work and if reasonably raising taxes on wealthy and closing corporate loopholes would generate enough revenue to cover these programs without exploding the deficit.
    On its face he has great ideas, but the devil will be in the details.

    Yes the confederate flag is free speech.  Is there any laws being proposed to outright ban the confederate flag?
