    Isn't it great how everyone loves the representative republic in this country until they aren't getting what they want?

    If he does veto it hopefully they will overturn it.

    I agree, but I'm not sure if they have the votes for it. Most of the time it takes 60% or 2/3 of the legislative body to override a veto (could be different in NJ). It passed 24-16 in their Senate, which is right at 60% if everyone voted. The house passed it 42-33, which is only 56% if everyone voted. Hopefully, the pro-SSM voters can convince some of those opposed that they should change their vote and Christie's veto is wrong. (He most likely will veto it.)

    I predict the override measure will fail 24-15- right down party lines.

    Re: Chris Christie set to veto gay marriage bill

    I oppose any bill recognizing gay marriage..

    or any marriage...


    I think "marriage" should be completely removed from government. Instead have a contractual agreement that is legal between any consenting adults, that can be 3 men and 1 woman, 6 women and 1 man, 2 men, 2 women, any combination or number and can be added upon at anytime as long as all those involved agree to the terms.

    Who is the government to tell us who we can or cannot have a relationship with? We should be allowed to freely chose with no penalties.

    I'm a fan of Christie's on most issues, dissapointed to see him make this choice. If I had to guess, this move is nothing more than posturing as a "true social conservative" for a 2016 presidential run.

    I live in NJ, he really doesn't agree with gay marriage for real. It's not posturing....
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I'm in agreement with him about 90% of the time. I love his in your face honesty --- something we sorely needed?
