    The people have no right to tell anyone what adult human non sibling they can marry. It is frankly none of your damn business. You don't believe in same sex marriage, don't marry someone of the same sex.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    The New Hampshire House is expected to vote Wednesday on whether to repeal the state’s two-year-old law that legalized gay marriage.
    Republicans backing the rollback bill say it would define marriage as between a man and woman, while allowing the state’s nearly 2,000 existing same-sex marriages to remain valid, The Associated Press reports. If approved, the measure would take affect in March 2013 and re-establish civil unions for same-sex couples

    Unless the people of New Hampshire got pissed and booted out all or most of those politicians who enacted gay marriage,then I do not see them voting to ban gay marriage.I could be wrong. But New Hampshire is part of the left coast,They are so left their republicans would have to run as democrats in southern states. So you shouldn't get your hopes up.

    Whether or not SCOTUS declares gay marriage illegal depends solely on the political makeup of the SC.

    the measure would take affect in March 2013 and re-establish civil unions for same-sex couples.

    So this bill doesn't actually ban gay marriage, it just changes the name of it to appeal to idiots who think if you call cow **** a T-bone steak then they will eat it.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

Besides, I am not so sure they will vote for this bill, or that the Supreme Court will rule against gay marriage.


    Kind of reminds me of California.

    Well I thought that NH had passed their bill through legislature, not court. And it was expanding those eligible for the contract of marriage. You're describing strict democracy which we don't, nor were we ever meant to, have. Pure democracy is a bad idea, for it leaves you open to the tyranny of the majority. The majority may have their way so long as they do not infringe upon the minority. There's a protection there, it's on purpose. But this I believe is legislature anyway, not courts. So they're going to try to get rid of it, it's what government does. However, there are bigger fish to fry than two dudes getting married. The individual has right to contract anyway. It's not going to be the end of the world, America couldn't be brought down by gay marriage.
    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

    If the people of NH are open minded maybe they'll realize it doesn't matter who the **** your married to so long as both of you are happy.

    I firmly support a state's right to legalize SSM or to legally define marriage. If this is supposed to be a voter's referendum and the original law legalizing SSM was just a state senate type thing then I support this. If not, then I don't support it.

    I guess everybody was so busy looking for the Quick Rant Reply button that they missed this little detail.

    So SS couples get the same legal framework and protections that OS couples get. So what's the problem? Unless it's not really legal protections proponents of SSM were after in the first place...
    The morality of abortion is not a religious belief, any more than the morality of slavery, apartheid, rape, larceny, murder or arson is a religious belief. These are norms of the natural law of mankind and can be legislated even in a completely religionless society.

    Separate but equal is unconstitutional.
