    It also guarantees equal protection under the law, meaning government benefits to marriage cannot be denied to specific groups. The supreme court has also several times ruled there's a constitutional right to marry, like it or not
    IIRC Obama cast an EO on the Federal benefits for same sex partners. Likely as equally unconstitutional.

    We here in TX prohibited [by law] SSM by a legitimate and overwhelming vote of 75%.

    lol this reply reveals that you aren't even trying to see things from perspective of the founders. They did not in any way intend for "the state, or the people" to mean "the state". That's you projecting your disdain for federalism, probably cause you live in a state where bigoted laws are struck down routinely

    Nothing legitimate about anything out of texas. Just like "lawrence v texas," you will be shown how the civilized world functions. America, love it or leave it right? Maybe secede again and see how that goes

    Last in education, environment, health care, executions, tolerance. Your 75% only convinces me it would not be missed

    You would think if anyone would hold respect for such a very basic tenet of the constitution, it would be a supreme court judge. I eagerly await further tears from scalia in june

    as texas and you will learn shortly those votes are 100% meaningless and the constitution and individual rights trumps them

    85% of people were against interracial marriage when SCOTUS passed it because thier opinions didnt mean diddly to the constitution lol

    you realize a link to what is probably the definition doesnt answer his question

    the idea of nullification is following the constitution LMAO
    so by default theres nothing to nullify

    Okay. But that is saying something entirely different than States = The People, which is what you said before.

    Also not sure how that is relevant. Neither the federal government, the state governments, nor the people can strip others of constitutional rights.
