    Cruz introduces bill defending states' rights on marriage

    "I support traditional marriage and we should reject attempts by the Obama administration to force same-sex marriage on all 50 states. The State Marriage Defense Act helps safeguard the ability of states to preserve traditional marriage for their citizens," he said.

    wow what a waste of time and money, also nothing like making sure you wont be president either lol Equal rights is coming bigots . .. give it up

    again im not saying this one topic SHOULD decide who could be president but any candidate that comes out against equal rights and they make it "PART OF THEIR CAMPAIGN AND RUNNING PLATFORM" is sure to lose lol

    its just the way politics will be in 2016

    lastly traditional marriage is in no danger by equal rights, its a made up subjective thing, it wont be impacted at all

    next "the obama administration forcing it"? It doesnt get any dumber than that.

    good lord
    the war is over but its entertaining seeing the last desperate attempts of bigotry, it shows peoples true colors

    I think Ted Cruz knows this kinda bill is a dud, but is well aware stunts like these will keep the Religious Right in Texas voting for him.
    The GOP loves standards. They love standards so much, they got two of them.

    Butchering of English grammar aside, I'm actually semi-okay with this and here's why: essentially what he is arguing for is to protect a state's ability choose if it wants to allow SSM in the state or not. Mainly because the way the electorate is going anyways, even if said bill was passed, eventually every state will legalize SSM anyways.

    It amazes me that so many GOPers are willing to hitch their wagon to such a clear losing issue.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    I dont totally disagree but is that his end game? just making the religious extremist and right fringe happy?
    Not that I think he ever had a shot but does he not care to be POTUS?

    I'm sure he's ambitious enough to one to be President one day, but he's not stupid enough to think it'll happen in the next 4-8 years.

    I know what he is going for but the problem is the state has no power to choose in this case. The states rights are already fully in tact. Bannings overreached thier power and thats why they are being corrected.

    Saying that "eventually" states will probably stop infringin on and violating individual rights is not a good point at all, and its purely a guess. It was either alabama or mississippi that tried a bill to stop interracial marriage in the last past 2-3 years, of course it failed but Im just saying . . . . .

    a totally losing issue . . .
    why "some" people want to be the ones who fought for the racism and segregation of our time is beyond me . . . .why are people against equal rights simply because they dont want some of thier fellow americans to have them . . . .theres nothing more hypocritical as an american
