"Government has no place in the bedrooms of the Nation"

Unless your one of them

Well I guess the definition of "them" as I use it here has changed, it used to include homosexuals, and before that there was the moral outrage of mixed marriage, and before that it was between religions and sects of religions...

Too bad no high-minded modern politician has ever really meant to abide by the ideals of freedom and liberty.

Do I support Polygamy? Polyandry? Polygyny? No, not explicitly. What I do support unequivocally is the right for every man woman and child to live their lives as they see fit, in complete liberty.

Let me spell this out. As long as you live your life without initiating force on any other human being I don't care what you do.

For the hard of thinking out there that means that in so far as the people involved in polygamy are all consenting adults in the maturity of their faculties it's none of our business as individuals or as a society what they do.

We are free to judge and even to condemn the residents of Bountiful as individuals, but to use the states monopoly of force against them is obscene, any prohibition on the private affairs of individuals is.
