    We can't do away with it completely, but it's also important to understand that we are not a strict democracy. Never were.

    Not really, the second part is the important modifier. Again, not a pure democracy.

    We're no longer a republic either. And we have effectively done away with any need for the vote. The robed Ayatollahs rule now.

    No you don't. You want to "win" on the gay rights issue and couldn't care less what gets you there. That much has been made obvious.

    Why vote against someone else's choice when that choice doesn't affect you? That is indeed an excellent question.

    The Republic has been on decline for some time. This issue didn't cause it, nor has it exacerbated it.

    Constitutions exist in large measure to protect people from the vicissitudes and opinions of the majority. By establishing universal rights you are shielding people from the... people. You could get 90% of a state to vote for an infringement on speech but it would be void because of my constitutional rights. The voters perspectives are irrelevant in the face of that.

    Those terrible robed ayatollahs, not allowing you to vote against someone else's freedom based on nothing more than the fact that you don't like their freedom. We're basically Iran!
