Sorry but Republicans are just as bad, you think these folks fly coach and drive small car rentals where they go or not accept lobbyist money? Republicans enjoy the free meal ticket as well as any Dem does.I'd bet collectively our congress has an IQ of 115-120 tops, which isn't bad by any means but the simple fact their "world view" as that of a lawyer really corrupts their minds, morality and ethics and on top of that boosts their ego's 100%...
The truth is that many in government who aren't corrupted and serve their constituents refuse lodging and choose to sleep on the floors or couches in their office just because it would be a waste of money to burden the taxpayer with a nice hotel room.... It seems democrats love the idea of living in luxury - it's a free meal ticket for them...
Yep, both the Dems and Republicans are corrupt, not sure where you are thinking I disagree with that.Democrats/Progressives/Liberals or whatever you want to call them have turned into aristocrats along with their 80-year-old RINO peers.
Not my assertion, I was questioning YOUR assertion that because Prop 8 succeeded in 2008 that it somehow represented a national opinion. I made no assertion, I did however point out that there were more recent votes which could be used for YOUR assertion. Well unless that assertion wasn't really based on the most recent vote representing a national view.
Yeah, a lot of people seem to be misreading this decision. While the SCOTUS has refused to hear a case wherein they would be asked to make a federal ruling on gay marriage, that does not mean that they will not take up a gay marriage case in the future that focus on the circuit court authority to strike down state referendum. I mean, the fact that circuit courts are already ruling on gay marriage referendums means the determination has already been taken out of the hands of the states and the voters, contrary to the desires of the SCOTUS.

Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.
Look, you can't defend SSM bans while opposing interracial marriage bans when both are overturned by way of the 14th. This whole charade is nothing but a repeat of Loving v Virginia
SCOTUS did not leave it up to the states.
They could rule on it later if they feel a lower court gets it wrong and a ruling is needed
and it has been taken out of the states and voters hands because as the lower courts determined it should never be there
its a win for equal rights but its not the end of the game yet . . .I say 2016 at the longest but wouldn't be surprised if this nonsense is done next year
I have absolutely no issue with conservatives, some are just people who value religion and others view conservatism as defending our founding documents, but don't even confuse that with modern republicans (some of which are OK I suppose, as some democrats are ok) - my issue is with extremism, political correctness, elitism and those who actually believe it's the governments duty to treat grown adults and people with families that are doing just fine like they're children.
This government just needs to leave people and business' the **** alone....
That will never happen tho considering the fact our government is basically a Mafia.
