If you think the SCOTUS even has the flipp'n authority to hear this case then the Tenth Amendment is garbage...
There is no Goddamn amendment that says ANYTHING ABOUT MARRIAGE hence the SCOTUS should stay the **** out of this issue.
If gay supporters want marriage then AMEND the ****ing Constitution instead of running to courts... Oh yeah, I forgot congress cannot and never could pass a "marriage" amendment...
**** half these clowns we have elected couldn't write a ****ing summery...

The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.
Furthermore, you can't make your argument unless you object to Loving v Virginia as well, which also infringed upon the states' rights to define marriage.
The only way Loving v Virginia had standing is by first acknowledging that marriage was a right, which was already established in other previous rulings.
I think we won't see any amendments from Congress for a long time.
"(Gay marriage) is a debate about whether you think gay people are part of the human condition or just a random fetish."
-- Jon Stewart
For any amendment on gay marriage to pass, you would need 290 members of the house and 67 senators voting for it. That will not happen, period.
Early voting in Georgia. On the 20th of October this old Goldwater conservative voted against both Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton by casting my vote for Gary Johnson. Neither Trump or Clinton belong within a million miles of the Oval Office.
We're all the way down the false road the SCOTUS has led us to where the court is in charge of amending the Constitution and the people have no part in it.
