It really is a big issue in US politics. It's good Don't Ask Don't Tell is gone, but the Defense of Marriage Act is still there.
It's just incredible how the same people, ie. many Republican Conservatives, many Tea-Party people, go on and on about small government being what the U.S. has got to have, but when it comes to the social issues that they believe are the right ones for everyone, such as Constitutional amendments making same sex marriage unconstituional, in those cases they really go for BIG governement. I'm not a Republican but Giuliani got it right when he said his fellow Republicans should stay out of people's bedrooms.
Big government is wonderful when it's for the extreme right conservative christian agenda, but it's really wrong when it comes to having an agency that's there to make sure the air and water doesn't get polluted. (They want to get rid of the EPA ...it's part of big gov't and big gov't is the bad guy.)
