    No, it isn't. It's a perfect example of what I was talking about. It made abortion legal in all states, but left holes you could drive a truck through and are still being adjudicated forty years later.

    The court does this whenever they stray from the text of the Constitution (which is quite a bit in the modern era).

That's going to leave gaps, leaving the door open for decades worth of legal battle.
    Ironically, this makes it more likely that SCOTUS will issue a less narrow decision in favor of SSM. They do not live in a cave, they are aware of this, and they could very well tailor their ruling in such a way to pre-empt the problem. It is even a good wedge to ensure Roberts joins with Kennedy and the liberals. If Texas does pass it, it will end up failing in the courts if SCOTUS rules in favor of SSM.

    The will of the people has limits. If the will of the people violates the constitution, then the will of the people will not succeed.

    Well I did that, the first time I asked the question. Your post was #1, my question with the quote was #2. But nice try with the obfuscation.

    They dont need to stray from the text of the Const to allow SSM under equal protection.

    Or, please show me the text of the Const where it does so.

    Going to get interesting if and I say SCOTUS will rule in favor of SSM, and States can literally kiss ass.
    I thought Republicans, like Texas were right big on law abiding, punishing & on occasion possibly executing innocent people.
    i do not really understand, what you want to say.

    That is what makes New Speak so dangerous. And what is so funny about it is, that the dopes that think it is cool don't realize how easily it can cost them badly.

    Yeah, they do. If it were there these very same justices would have found it long ago at the beginning of their terms together. In fact they wouldn't have put off this issue for as long as they have. They are simply waiting for social conditions to change so they won't be impeached by an angry public. That would put the court's re-engineering of the Constitution front and center and they definitely don't want the public thinking about that.
