    It's a formality, NP. What are you going to do when it is passed?

    I don't see any candidate with any awesome plan to dramatically fix the economy. Minor changes 'tis all I see. I certainly didn't see either candidate as one who's economic policies or judicial picks destroying anything. The economy is not going to fall apart. This is catastrophizing hooey. There will be valleys and hills. There always are. No one is going to do something so dramatic as to destroy the ecosystem. Those that believe Obama will don't know what they are talking about. Might things get worse? Maybe. Might they get better? Maybe. Will they be destroyed? Nah.

    it really should be a non-issue. why anyone cares is beyond my comprehension, theres nothing about two guys or girls getting married that in any way invalidates a heterosexual marriage.

    Though it gets ridiculed here by those who don't understand the law, but the fact remains that straights and gays are objectively treated the same under the law. What the difference is involves subjective feelings of "attraction"

    Um...not really. When a gay, married couple can take their children in one state and cross the border into another state and suddenly have their marriage and parental rights disappear, you can't claim they are "objectively" treated the same.

    We are waiting for you guys to get on with the legalization of incest, plural marriages, and bestiality. I mean...obviously that is what comes after legalizing same sex marriage.

    a man and a woman can do that whether they find each other attractive or not. the world is full of lesbians who are mothers and the children were products of heterosexual intercourse
