Interested in the latest wisdom or folly of a major newspaper columnist suggestion to legalize polygamy in the USA?

The Chicago Tribune article titled: Utah taking steps toward decriminalizing polygamy, states:

“Even in conservative circles, policing intimate relations is not seen as an important or even valid government responsibility.”

The Purpose of This Post

Is to question if conservative circles really agree with the writer’s opinion? If not, perhaps the government legislators need to be reminded of their responsibility for wise use of taxpayer’s funds. Funds that everyone has to pay to subsidize the fellow citizens that have to pay for the valid results of other people’s intimate relations.

King Solomon

One who has no sense shakes hands in pledge and puts up security for a neighbor. (Prover 17:18)

What’s My Point?

The above proverb gives advice that it is not wise to co-sign and become responsible for the debts of another.

How does that apply to polygamy you may be wondering? It applies in the same “no sense” since that we live in a Republic which is a community of hopefully good friends and neighbors who because of taxation, are in a sense agreeing to pay for those in our Nation when they either cannot pay for the choices they make.

Whether they cannot pay because of an accident or misfortune they have no control over. Or whether they make foolish choices in their lives in search of pleasures, or knowingly take advantage of a friend by asking him to guarantee to pay for his foolish choice or mistakes he makes in life.

In a Republic, when we agree to change a law to make it easier someone to make a foolish choice that result of him or her not being able to pay his creditors, it is not wise to cosign and agree to pay for their choices.

In other words, in the USA, we have a political party that believes that everyone has a Right to indulge in some very risky pleasures of their own choice. And when they become incapable to pay for the sad results of their unhealthy foolish choices, it is up to their friends (taxpayers) who cosigned to pay  in a Republic.

For example, every law that passed to pay for medical costs of those who choose to smoke cigarettes, or marijuana, engage in sex that risks a sexual transmitted disease, or a pregnancy that results in taxpayers having to pay for the choices of others is in essence obligated as a cosigner agreement by taxpayers in the Republic of the USA.

That is unless those who indulge in risky behaviors pay for a very expensive self-insurance policy to cover their choices.

As for the record of who winds up paying for the households of polygomus families? The facts are  polygamy family members wind up being on significant government food and family subsidies.

In My Opinion

In the upcoming 2020 election, if you consider yourself as being a cosigner of all the programs they are proposing because we are all in essence agreeing to become responsible for all the costs as taxpayers.

You Decide

Do you believe the King Solomon wisdom warning that only people with no sense agree it cosign a loan for a neighbor?

Which political party platform that makes no sense will you choose “Next” to agree to consign as a taxpayer to support in a Republic with a currently 22 TRILLION DOLLARs in DEBT?

Is passing a law to reinstate polygamy and making you pay really seem to you: as an important or even valid government responsibility.”
