    As if your original full quote sounded less biggoted.

    Yes, there are some differences as Erod pointed out. Even if there were no practical differences, however, it would be a "separate is not really equal" type of deal.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Peoples' rights and/or equality standards should never be left up to the states.

    Yeah we can pick and chose what to vote on....When you lefties know you will lose a vote (and that happens every time a vote is taken) you want activist judges and legislatures to handle it..........Sorry it don't work that way.

    People rights are guaranteed by the States, never left up to the States.
    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.

    That's actually rather debatable.

    Actually, it does. And no, it doesn't happen every time a vote is taken.

    Then marriage would be inferior to civil unions and they would still be unequal.

    No. That is the GOP and their sheep. They are the ones who want to disban this amendment and that amendment. I just want equal rights protected under our constitution. Otherwise we can have a country with 50 different standards which are not equal.
