    We have a Representative democracy, learn how it works. In the meantime do a little studying of states rights and see how it relates to our Founders

    Then put it on the ballot again to legitimize your opinions and the court rulings.

    What a stupid waste of time and money you are suggesting. Not going to happen.

    But interesting to see how you have no issue with trying to waste more taxpayer money to try to maintain your hateful, discriminatory, unconstitutional position within the laws.

    Interracial marriage isn't in the constitution. Race isn't in the 14th amendment. Explain to me why you believe interracial marriage bans are unconstitutional. (or, if you don't believe that, let me know. would hate to attack a straw man)

    Yet you are pushing for a direct democracy in continually asking for it to be put on the ballot.

    I know about states' rights. They lost the Civil War and therefore were limited by the 14th Amendment. Not all the Founding Fathers were for the states to have so much power, hence why the Articles of Confederation failed.

    (b) This state or a political subdivision of this state may not create or recognize any legal status identical or similar to marriage.

    (Added Nov. 8, 2005.)



    The discrimination crowd blocked that option in many States where they passed bans on BOTH Civil Unions and Civil Marriages.

    Gerrymandering, electoral college, and the **** 2 party system all conspire to guarantee we do not. That's why we'll be stuck with Bush III vs Clinton II and fossils like mccain in the senate. If it's so perfectly representative as you claim, why the hell does wyoming get 2 senators and a vote in ratification, same as huge states like CA and texas? This isn't 1780 anymore. The system is broken.

    The waste of time and money is on your part, not mine. seems you don't have any problem wasting money on issues important to you but not to have the true will of the people heard. You made the claim that the majority support Same Sex Marriages but cannot prove it at the ballot box and therein lies your problem
