    You mean the American Revolution where progressives rebelled against aristocracy and conservatives stayed loyal to the king? You might want to check that "we" stuff, then. The only rebellion that someone you could call "we" participated in took place in the 1860s, not the 1770s.

    And it is apparent from your post that you don't understand the Bill of Rights, the Fourteenth Amendment, or the fact that the Civil War ended this bull**** debate between the rights of states and the pre-eminence of the Federal Government and the Federal Courts. Sadly, you are not alone in denying reality.

    Actually they do, but keep fighting that battle.

    The Founders just assumed that if the President tried to take Congress's powers, that they would stop him. They never thought that they would just lay down like these idiots. So we are left with no one to stop this stuff.
    May I suggest emigration as a possible solution for you?

    Yeah, but with bigots around who conveniently forget history, it's hard for those of us on the left to let them get away with 'memory loss'.

We did it before, hopefully we won't have to do it again.
    A violent uprising? Good grief. The fantasies some people conjure up.

    No, it does not, as the judge herself has already explained in dismissing contempt complaints earlier this week.
    I'm sorry that is plainly nonsense. Federal district court orders are enforceable against the state. This is a Federal Constitutional question which gives the district court jurisdiction and since the Federal Constitution supersedes state law her decision is binding on the state.

    Do you have a link to her opinion? I'd like to read it for myself.

    What the hell do you call banning SSM? Religion dictating political policy to the state. Some of these probate judges even cite "adam and eve" as if they derive their entire moral code and legal adherence from an ancient book of fables that tries to legitimize slavery (another deep south tradition) and offering one's daughters up for rape
