By all means........let's vote on this marriage issue and not just in regards to Gay and Lesbian couples.......but for ALL couples.....okay?
I mean we should have a vote on big people getting married
Certainly inter-faith marriages
Need a vote on inter-racial marriages.......I mean come on that was forced on society, right?
Maybe we even need to vote on how many children a married couple must procreate.
How about making marriage strictly about procreation ONLY? I mean then those who can't procreate don't really need to get married, right?
This list could go on and on.......and even get more sillier and stupid than this Politician can imagine. One could tie up the legislators for years with ballot initiatives.
Imagine voting on *every social issue*-- and the public gets to decide.
You know what would happen? You know.
The WHOLE POPULATION of the UNITED STATES would be taking to the streets with guns to shoot the heads off all the other people denying them their rights. It would be an *UNMITIGATED DISASTER*, pure and simple.
Law exists to *protect* the rights of people. Your post is spot-on. I'd love to see how Americans would react if ALL these things were put up to a vote; if *EVERYTHING* were put up to a vote. My god, imagine zoning laws, what we can and cannot see on TV, what restaurants serve, where churches are located, which religion is *CORRECT*, my god; you'd have all-out war.
This voting BULLSHIT needs to stop. In the case of gay rights, it's especially egregious because the voters *are misinformed by liars*.
Thank you for your post.
