    Unfortunately I live in a Communistwealth where it is currently legal. It was pushed on our legislature by a Supreme Judicial Court that so far overstepped its bounds that the entire body should have been disbanded the next day.

    You will see in some places the violence of the Rodney King verdict and everywhere the utter disbelief at the wrong decision which you saw after the OJ decision.

    No I won't. Much like you nor anyone else did where you live. In fact, I suspect that there will be a national sigh of relief rather than violence and looting. I understand hard core conservatives opposition to the issue, but you won't be seeing that crowd take to the streets to loot and assault. IMO.

    You might be surprised. We've been pissed on for the better part of a century and a half now. At some point you folks are going to find that final straw and our reaction is not going to be pleasant, nor will it be related to voting people into/out of office.

    You have got me there. I would be very surprised, based upon reaction to this issue previously everywhere it has been passed, if a OJ verdict like reaction occurred. Mostly because it has not and IMO will not. Tell me, if it did not happen where you are from, I'm guessing New England, where do you think it WILL happen at?

    I think it will happen in parts of the South and the Midwest. Areas where the majority of the citizenry still actually believe in morals and values. It wasn't going to happen in New England because the vast majority of the population here couldn't even define morality or values, nevermind actually live by them.

    Well I live in the south and I sincerely doubt that. As much as I doubt the wide net stereotype you cast of people in your region or mine. I'm quite confident that the people in mine won't be rioting or looting each other as in the OJ verdict as much as they did not yours.

    Then this country is DEAD. America has failed. We have become nothing more than another member of the European Union. The Soviets won. Socializm reigns supreme and humanity has no more hope. I'm very sorry to hear that, because it will likely be the end of my existance as well.

    Well I wish you a good night. I had no idea that homosexual marriage was part of the Soviet/Socialistic platform or goal or aims. Rather the opposite, but sure. When and if homosexuals get the right to marriage, instead of a collective sigh of relief, the citizenry will scream it is all due to the Soviets. Then riot and pillage. I guess.

    It's a continuation of the Socialist agenda, which is a watered-down version of the Communism that the Soviets tried. One of the goals/aims of the Soviet Union was to destroy the Capitalist system and all forms of morality and values in the West. Two decades after their own demise, that goal has finally been reached. Unfortunately, you're probably correct that the majority of citizens will accept the new ruling like sheep being led to the slaughter. That's just proof that this country and its citizens no longer have any morals or values.

    Not going to happen. At most, you will see a few protests and the occasional crazy firing a few shots at the local gay bar, but this fantasy of yours where people rise up en masse and riot because two dudes can now tie the knot is pure dreamland material.
