OK maybe that is a little cynical, but It is also fairly true.
But yet you do as your government tells you...lol. Like the flu shot, most educated people know it's not a good idea to shoot your baby or child with dangerous chemicals to prevent a few days of being sick, Not you.

Ok lets get simple
In what way did Prop 8 victimize you personally?
What right did you have that you lost when prop 8 was passed?
A blow to equal rights is a blow to everyone. Maybe you don't fully understand that?

Prop 8 victimized polygamy and SSM EQUALLY. And it victimized us all in restricting rights.

When they come to take your neighbor...(I hope you know the rest).

Really? What don't you understand about "marriage is a man and a woman" only?
Don't hog the victimhood. There's plenty to go around.
Is it possible that the intent was, marriage is between male and female?

DOMA is equally discriminatory against polyamorists wishing to marry.

By eliminating prop 8 there will be one less law against polygamy, no matter how hard you try to spin it that there won't be.

"A" male and "A" female. Does it say "males and females" dummy? No it says "A" male and "A" female as in one of each only.

Admittedly, this is a serious accusation. Yet I think it can proven with a simple test: Ask Judge Walker if his reasoning applies to polygamous marriage.
Of course! Because we all know that "substitute polygamy" is the gold standard for determining what is logical.

Obama finally evolved into the empty chair. Clint was first, like a true conservative. Obama waited to see which way the political wind was blowing like a true liberal.

Insisting prop 8 doesn't effect polygamy is not logical.

One more law against polygamy has zero effect on polygamy? Try again.

"Marriage is a man and a woman" doesn't have anything to do with polygamy? Does it say "men and women" or does it say "A man and A woman"? Try again.

Clint Eastwood is a great actor, writer and director. Palin is silly.

We need a LEADER. A man on a white horse. Not on a political bandwagon.
