    actually where is no "will of the people" on a national level.

    if the will of the people were ever unleashed, and it may in the future, because the constitution is not being followed your going to see more people denied their rights, and some people given more rights.

    Kinda like how the conservotards are all about judicial activism ... until the courts hand down a decision they like.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    As I understood the Constitution, one of its core principles was to protect against the tyranny of majority.

    Not only that, but I'm not too keen on the idea that equal treatment and human rights are subject to the will of the people.

    the founders did not want what is know as direct rule of the people, which is why america was created with a mixed constitution.....federalist 40

    direct rule or popular government is democracy or majority rule which the founders sought to void be it direct or representative democracy .....they liked neither.

    My facts are correct, sorry Charlie. The Mormon church should be ashamed of themselves.
    how can i be dead wrong if i agree with you that they provided funding?
    ( it wasn't " in large part".. it was less than 200k... you are confusing the church with individual member donations )


    you previously stated the church ran ads , propagandized, and told lies.... each of those claims is false.
    you are confusing the campaign with the church.... which are two separate entities altogether.

    don't get mad at me... it's not my fault you can't tell the difference between the campaign and the church.

    Yeah, but it was the pro-gay marriage folks that raised nine kinds of hell that this should be put to a referendum. Then, when things didn't go their way, they through a temper-tantrum. It is what it, bro; ain't no denying it.

    It's the will of the people in which the referendum will serve as law.
