I've read the Ninth Amendment, moron.

Damn near verbatim, the exact opposite of your assertions. How can you be SO in denial?

Stick with that, simpleton.

Conveniently, it also addresses your previous delusions that a right has to be specifically enumerated to exist. The Framers saw idiots like you coming over two hundred years ago.

Enough, though. You are FAR too stupid to continue. You're embarrassing yourself to the point where it's becoming more pitiful and pathetic than funny.

This is like beating up on the helmet wearing kids who get off the little bus. They can't help what they are any more than you can. Go ahead and tell yourself that you're clever in the face of all the evidence you've provided us to the contrary. Cling to your delusions and denial. If being a laughing stock gets you through your day, hey, you have that right.

Please resist the urge to explain to us how you don't really have that right. You do. Just accept and exercise it.

You have shown that you are really good at cut and paste.

How about you tell us what the 9th Amendment means and why Madison included it?

I won't expect you to get into the entire discussion which would include the Federalist vs Anti-Federalist views as it pertains to the drafting and debate over the bill of rights, that would be too much for you.

You have an elementary level understanding of the Constitution at best. You stand on your playground screaming- Look, look, the Constitution was designed to grant "right's" because it's called the bill of right's. You are a child.

You will never advance beyond that childish understanding unless you educate yourself and apply critical thinking skills. Try reading those documents that I cited for you, it is painfully obvious that you have not.

The Constitution was designed to frame our government and specifically enumerate certain powers. By the enumeration of these limited powers the right's of the people would be secure. The addition of the Bill of Right's was due to the fact that many felt these limited enumerated powers would not be enough, and the government would grow and become limitless. They felt it important to be even more specific in certain areas, including very specific and important areas where the Federal Government was limited, to further ensure the protection of those right's.

Marriage does not fall under the purview of the Federal Government, thus the 9th and 10th Amendment delegate that power to the people and the State.

Now go study, you need it.

Ok how about because time after time the majority has been wrong. Look at the plight of the American Indian or Blacks, Woman's rights or Religous ones if not the same as the masses .at one time the majority were against all these folks.just because you are in the majority does not make your cause just or right, law are passed and overturned to protect the rights of minorities . its why our system is set up the way it is. trent gatewood

Oh my god you are an idiot.
Have you ever read the Constitution? How about the 9th and 10th Amendments?
The Constitution doesn't enumerate "right's" it enumerates power to the federal government. In this case, marriage is NOT listed, thus it is NOT a power of the Federal Government- that includes the SCOTUS.
The Federal Government lacking said power leaves that power to the states and the people- the regulation of marriage.
But, the 14th Amendment says:
"nor shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws."

That would include the laws governing marriage.

You're wasting your time.

Your discussing the Constitution with a guy who starts with "The Constitution does NOT enumerate Rights."
He is delusional and incapable of rational thought.

Even an infertile husband and wife can give an adopted child something no same sex couple can; a mother and father.
Circular reasoning.

And so what?
Allowing gay marriage won't stop infertile straight couples from adopting children.
And single people can adopt.
Gay marriage and the "father/mother" issue are different.

Actually, an argument FOR gay marriage.

<quoted text>There's no law stopping same sex couples from considering themselves married, even if the law doesn't permit government to recognize those unions as marriage.
And adopting. So, what's your point?

It's clear you don't really feel that way.

Yes, there is equality for all citizens in the 14th Amendment.
