Or just because a few states have redefined marriage in their states, why should they have to as well, when the voters of the latter states said no?

Uh huh....so they can't get the best people without nationwide SSM? Sigh.....
So I guess that means my concealed carry permit is now good in all 50 States too now, right?

At least if we use their logic, but of course this philosophy really only counts when it is something they want.

Stupid, I said "IF that were the case, gay people would just marry a friend of the opposite sex." IOW, IF the only thing gay people were interested in were benefits, they would just marry friends of the opposite sex, and not fight for gay marriage.
That's funny, considering anyone could say they are married, hell they could even create a church that would perform homosexual marriages. BTW, they already exist Rose. Stop acting like this fight has nothing to do with benefits, benefits have EVERYTHING to do with it.

Your dishonesty combined with your illogical ranting are why people don't take you seriously.

If voters had their way in the South, blacks and other minorities would likely still not have equal rights.
It took federal intervention by way of physical force (The National Guard), federal laws, and Supreme Court decisions to make Southern states integrate the races, enact voting rights, etc.
All of which violated the Constitution.

Stupid, I never said the fight had *nothing* to do with benefits, it's just not the only thing. If it were, gay people could just marry friends, or strangers for that matter, of the opposite sex and get the benefits. Clearly something else is involved.

You take me seriously, you are fixated on me. You keep trying to "get" me. It's actually kind of funny.

I don't need to try very hard to get you, I just need to show up.

BTW Rose, if there were NO benefits to marriage, you wouldn't see homosexuals fighting for the "right" to marry. This most certainly is about benefits Rose, you aren't fighting for the use of a word you moron.

It's not "splitting hairs" it is a very distinct difference. The founder's fought for month's through the ratification debates to show that we were not to be a "democracy" that we were not a "national" government, but that we were in fact a republic with a federal government that was restricted in its powers through the specific enumerations contained within the Constitution. Go read the State Ratification debates, hell, Madison and Hamilton devoted no less than 4 of the Federalist papers to this topic.

There are not minor things, they should be taught, and they need to be understood. Many people spend their days on this thread screaming about "Constitutional Right's" when they don't have a damn clue what the true meaning of the words contained within the document.

But it's perfectly OK for tax paying gays to supplement your benefits and privileges of being married! Sure benefits are part of gays wanting to have marriage equality but not the only reasons! Gays pay taxes and should be entitled to the very same benefits that you enjoy as a married heterosexual male,but as it stands now they aren't! Hopefully that will all change when DOMA falls and Prop 8 falls this coming June! Try again,you're simply wrong!

Welcome to the party clueless. Perhaps you should comprehend a persons position before you make an ass out of yourself.

Let me get you up to speed.

1) I am not in favor of benefits for marriage, I have made this clear many times. If ever there was an "equality" argument it is to be found in the tax laws regarding single vs marriage. Funny none of you take issue with that, you simply want your piece of the pie.

2)I have clearly statement many times as well, that Section 3 of DOMA is unconstitutional as the Federal Government lack's the enumerated power to regulate or define marriage.

3)And since the Federal Government lack's the enumerated power to regulate marriage and it is an issue left to the State (exactly what the lower court said when it tossed DOMA) said Federal Government including the Judiciary, lack the ability to toss Prop 8, for to do so would in fact be the Federal Government defining marriage.

Now crawl back under your rock.
