    Last I checked the DOMA had not come before the SCOTUS.

    BTW President Bill Clinton now considers signing the DOMA a bad decision.

    There's a reason we live in a representative republic, and have law, and courts.

    People are fickle.

    We elect leaders to make hard choices.

    Our problem isn't that our leaders make those hard choices and get kicked out of office, it's that our leaders keep schmoozing us in order to keep bleeding us in exchange for favors from their masters.
    Actually if you want to get technical is the way we do business in this country us the "Will of the people" not activist judges from the bench...If you don't like our system of law maybe you should move to China and try theirs......

    The so called " Will of the People" gets knocked down all the time like in the case of the anti miscegenation laws.

    (AP) Same-sex weddings could create hundreds of new jobs and pump hundreds of millions of dollars into California's economy, according to a new study released Monday.

    So your position is that it should be permitted because of the money that will be spent?.....
    I don't think that justifies it one iota......

    Don't bother giving me that "activist judge" line, college boy. You know full well that people only use it when they see a court decision go the wrong way.

    This ain't a democracy. It never has been, never will be. Plenty of the most important changes made in the history of our nation have been against "the will of the people."
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.
