    I agree, it should be up to the states. They are the legal entities that recognize marriages.

    Marriage as been redefined many times throughout history. But again, your free to define it for you and practice it as you and your spouse choose.

    Excuse me, do you get to define murder, grand larcency, contract law, to suit yourself???

    Yeah, I would be upset too if the court made me a second class citizen said my beliefs and vote do not count because it ticks off homosexuals and their supporters with their emotional and warped mantra of "equal rights." Hopefully the SCOTUS will make the right decision and let the states decide marriage for themselves and overturn DOMA under those grounds as well.
    If they let individual states decide, then DOMA should stand, as most of them have already decided as has Congress (and the answer was to disallow).

    Then why would you argue that it is some sort of right?

    Why do so many like to argue stereotypes instead of the person before them?

    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.
