    But I cannot support a bigot, under any circumstances...and I hope if he does veto this bill, the legislature will have the votes to override him, or the voters can get a referrendum together.

    SSM should be the law of land, period.

    And again, we live in a representative republic, even the states are set up this way, not a direct democracy.

    Direct democracies are tyrannies of the majority. They also have major issues that come into play having to do with voting. That is not what our founding fathers wanted, which is why we have the Constitution and the system we do. This goes for the states as well, since they are all set up very similar to our federal government with representatives and each having its own constitution.

    Why can't a person have a difference of opinion? why do you on the left always resort to name calling. Is your hate that deep? And to think you call us on the right the intolerant ones.......... Sad

    Christie should give the voters what they want, just like California should.

    No they shouldn't, unconstitutional laws should never be implemented.

    You need to read your constitution. The SCOTUS will take care of it for you.

    I think you need to, pay close attention to the 14th amendment.

    It's unconstitutional to deny people the right to their votes or force a state that issues marriage licenses (and marriage being silent in the Constitution) all in the name of something that isn't Constitutionally sound (forcing SSM on every state)

    The law doesn't apply the same to me as it does to you. That' unconstitutional, you can't deny that.
