If FairTax solves the Gay Marriage issue, what would Feds returning land to States do?

If we had FairTax, the use of the marriage contract would not any longer be used as a tax tool, thus making the entire subject of being gay a mute issue.

Moral conduct is certainly not a federal issue, Constitutionally nor can the feds own land, yet they do. Why we allow it?

Expand your view to read how much land the Federal Government is holding in violation of the Constitution. The Federal Government has no authority to control land or morals.

Here is the defining in the Constitution to the extent the Federal Government Constitutionally is limited to:

US Constitution, Article I, section eight  " ...To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of particular States, and the acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings; ..."

 In the old days we went by that law, until we found Jesus new way. Ours is founded in common law lost to the Courts. Maybe if we had back our common law, we would not have government telling us how to live.

Today the English Constitution is known as whatever Parliament says it is. Not so in 1750, according to many lawyers on both sides of the Atlantic. Valid legal arguments were made that the English Constitution was a unwritten system of customary restraints on what the King and the governing body could do.

Consider Lord Camden. In 1766, he was Chief Justice of one of the central common law courts and about to become Lord Chancellor.. At that time he warned Parliament that there were steps, including taxing the American Colonies, that it could not take legally. Camden agreed with the theory of the Massachusetts lawyers: that the English Constitution was a system of customary restraints on what the King and the governing body could do. And that customary restraint made it legally improper to tax without the consent of the representatives of the English persons to be taxed. Lord Camden, "House of Lords Debate of 10 Feb 1766," in Parliamentary History (1766), 168....
